Cavalli Audio's Liquid Carbon Owners Impressions

Discussion in 'Headphone Amps (full-size)' started by mr rick, Nov 14, 2015.

  1. Mr Rick
    Thought I would start a new thread specifically for impressions from new Cavalli Liquid Carbon owners.
     
    I just received mine a few minutes ago, so no comments as of yet. I'm putting it through it's paces using my Headphone / Amp test tracks on Spotify.

    My first observation:
     
    Adding balanced cables to my HD650 and using the balanced output of the LC has given my HD650s new life. Always seemed my HD650s were a bit flat. No longer. 
     
    Later this evening I'll try my HD800 with balanced cables out of the LC.

    It looks like Mr Rick did the right thing and created a separate impressions thread. Here is a copy and paste I just posted on the original thread:
     
    Come on guys, I can't be the only one who has one up and running. I fell asleep listening to it last night with my Fostex TH900's. The sound was balanced, had good tone, and created nice sound staging. At this price point, I think the amp is a home run. What are the rest of you hearing??

    Pretty sure this thread will fill up more in a couple weeks. Nice to have one started though, thanks. I know I'll be posting impressions. :D

    I am connecting the iPhone 6+ (or 4s) to Cypherlabs Theorem 720 DAC amp (via OTG cable came with CL) >> what balanced cable do you suggest to pair with LC amp? Any links to get the cables would be appreciated?

    I won't be using anything fancy. I found these on Amazon.

    Well, I have to be able to connect the sources to LC then give the impressions after long listening session, right? image.jpg

    Wrong, it's an impressions thread. Lots of threads on how to connect amps and sources.

    It really doesn't matter to me that much. I was just amused by how long it took.

    I have one on order but am considering cancelling. I find it hard to justify when I don't know why its supposedly better than other amps.  What makes it so awesome ? I am holding of cancelling until I have some real information. If its only 5% better than what I have its not worth it. Come on guys sell me on it. I feel I got a bit caught up in the hype. I remain open minded but am camping at the bit to know why its "awesome" one other person I read said the sound is orgasmic haha but in what way.. do tell . help me make up my mind.

    It's not our job to sell you on anything, but if you told us your current setup maybe someone could give you meaningful feedback on whether or not it would be a real upgrade.

    TBH I really like the SQ of the LC after listening at CanJam SoCal. Dr. Alex Cavalli told me if I got the right balanced cables (Wywire balanced cables from the sources all the way to HD800 via LC) the sound will be really good. That 60 minute long listening session have impressed me enough.
