Was able to hear the 812 at CanJam SoCal since the Audeze booth had one. The LCD-3 on it was one of the best things I heard at the show. Actually bought an LCD-3 based on it, and I hope it’s somewhere near as good with my existing setup. Very wide and unique soundstage and some of the best mids I’ve ever heard. The same with the TT2 they had was just terrible. Lifeless and so different that I questioned if I was really listening to the same LCD-3. Went back to the 812 with it and nope, still amazing on it. If I wasn’t a tube person and in the market for such a DAC & amp I’d probably be saving up for it.
