I'd say the LC doesn't color, it's more a "wire with gain" amp at least IMO (and many others). The CDM with the tubes does add its own signature, which is not a bad thing. Try it and see if you like it. Don't judge others' tastes please. Cheers


So, if you are using an amp on top of the Mojo, and are not using any gain (i.e., if you are using the LC on 1x gain or 3x gain but less volume than full volume on 1x gain would provide) you are simply coloring the output of the Mojo. Not necessarily bad, but perhaps less fidelity than using the Mojo alone.

It would be good if I level matched, but I didn't. I pushed both up to a limit I prefer listening to (can be off, give or take). It's kind of like comparing the ha 2 and mojo, I sensed mojo was much better, eventhough I didn't matched it perfectly.

Just curious, do people volumn match when they go to a store and compare products?

 
That is why going to a store and volume matching by ear won't give you the proper results for any amp comparison. A 1dB difference is big enough difference. Usually the louder one gives a favorable impression.

It would be best, definitely, but it was not close enough that I find the need for volumn matching.

For example, I didn't need to volumn match to tell mojo is better than ha 2.

When the diffence is big that is when you have to eliminate as many variable as possible.
