Been through quite a few amps now and audition quite a lot more. Violectric v281 and Ragnarok will drive the LCD4 well. Glenn Super 9 OTL amp will drive the 200ohm LCD4 very well. However the ultimate will be the DNA Stratus which I'll be receiving in July 2019.
I make this post in August 4th 2018. I didn't have the LCD4 then and didn't have the v281 (did have the v280 later) but have Ragnarok and later did have the Glenn Super 9 OTL amp. I was the first to popularise the GOTL. One or two owners before me but it wasn't well known then until I exploded the Glenn thread.
For some reason the DNA Stratus eluded me. Once I place an order but withdraw after waiting 8 months... because the Sansui(s) craze descended upon me with the force of a gale.
However I have the LCD4 now for a month -bought new and also a new 300b amp lovingly call Destiny. I have very linear and neutral system setups before but I didn't know that I also love creamy, chocolatey sounding setups with voluptuous bass and yet amazingly clear details and the mid range is to die for. Yes LCD4 and Destiny with Yggdrasil sends goose bumps all over me. I can hear Eva Cassidy's breath on my ears.
LCD4 with Destiny Woo. What a name. In case you're wondering... will the Wa22 drive the LCD4... not in my opinion ... power is just barely adequate. Destiny on the other hand will rock and roll LCD4.
