Anyone here has upgraded from lcd x. What you guys have?
I too was considering an upgrade and was ready to pull the trigger on LCD4 burls when a big crack appeared in my LCD3 zebrawood. Audeze is demanding more than the LCD3 are worth to fix it. Now it is only a matter of time until my LCD3 fall apart in my hands just like my TH900 did. And that would be the eventual end for my LCD4 as well.
You may say what about my LCDX well actually I own LCDXC which are voiced very similar. I just hang around on this thread because it is obviously the coolest Audeze TOTL thread. In fact for short-term listening I prefer the LCDXC over the LCD3 due to truer FR but for long-term listening the LCD3 is best for me because it is never fatiguing.
That is why I am interested in the MX4. It uses the same bullet-proof diaphragm as the LCDX but with the bigger LCD4 magnets. Even lighter structure, no wood to split in 5 years. Nobody's heard it yet but I'll bet it's smoother in the top end than the LCDX or LCDXC. So for me it's either the MX4 or Stax. I've owned a pair of Lambdas for 20 years, still working great.
