Well, after reading ~100pgs and skimming the next 100 or so I pulled the trigger yesterday and ordered an LCD-X. Can't wait to get it in hand. Unfortunately although I apparently live less than 10mi from their warehouse it will take 4 days for FedEx to get them to me lol. Gonna be a loooong weekend.
In the meantime, I've read everything from "these are super easy to drive" to "they scale well with better amps". Currently have Modi 3/Magni Heresy...am I right to assume these would be the bare min to drive these until I get something else? Was looking at Jotunheim but need to read up more on differences between 1 and 2 before committing. Should I expect to fast-track that? I'll give the current setup a listen of course but want to know what I'm getting into while I way this agonizingly long 4 days
Being easy to drive and scaling well with better amps are not mutually exclusive, at least not in this case. The X doesn't suffer from deleterious effects to the frequency response or get muffled with lower power, but better amping will improve the resolution, imaging, and separation given how responsive and fast the driver is.
