I also agree with you're write up @SpeedSmith will said, The LCX is a very enjoyable amp I've noticed that it sounds better the warmer it gets don't know if all SS amps are like that but any time I listen it goes on 20 mins before makes all the difference. Or it could be I'm just used to my wa22 warm-up time is a must for that amp..enjoy
Thanks guys. I'm hoping to provide some helpful content or the very least something thought provoking. I've been surfing this forum for a while and learned a great deal, so I wanted to return the favor.

And yes, I very much agree, the LCX needs some warm up time. 20 minutes sounds spot on.

I'm bettin' that WooAudio unit is spectacular! Someday I may consolidate some hobbies and go big. :wink:

Being an LCX owner - I am curious, too!
What are the chances Alex @runeight would chime in and compare his 2 creations? :wink:

so with the current batch of lcx going out are they still using the terrible black finish that turns white if u stare at it to hard? I have one of the first 500 and compared to my cth the finish is terrible.
hahahaahha this! I have the cth and the lcx as a stack and can also confirm! I stared at mine for too long and the whole stack turned white! o.O All jokes aside it does get a little annoying though and makes my ocd tingles.

Hi guys was wondering if anyone had heard the lcd 3 on the lcx yet? After trying out several amp I really love the LCX but wondering how it will pair with the lcd 3. I've had the lcd 2f with it and I think the sound is amazing but not so sure about the 3.

something that helps hide the white marks a lot is i used a small bit of eagle one "wax as u dry" on a cloth and VERY gently rubbed it on it made it all black once again and while it gets some fingerprints now it doesnt turn white nearly as bad. just dont rub to hard be very gentle so you dont make shiny spots.

I don't use my lcd3's with this amp the sound stage is too narrow, I enjoy the LCX but to my ears it's better with my 560's or Elear's. My lcd3's, AFO's sound their best with my tube amp..enjoy

Hi All,
May I ask how hot does Massdrop Liquid Carbon X + SDAC get? Would you say it gets as hot as a PC?
Honestly it is the last concern for me to get one.
Thanks,

not sure about the combo but i have the lcx and it doesnt get that warm. i cant imagine the combo would get that much warmer. it gets slightly warm to the touch but nothing i would call hot and def no where near as hot as any of my pc's

I have the original and it gets warm also so I don’t think it is a problem. Most of my other gear run hot so I don’t see a problem. Stop worrying.

Thanks guys. I also want to know if it is cooler than Schiit Jotunheim?
I know most people won't have them both since they are very similar. In fact what kept me from buying Jot was because I was worried it gets hot/too warm. I am using Fiio E10k so any decent DAC/AMP would be an upgrade to me. But one thing E10k is good is that it does not get warm at all so I can put it right next to me, which is good especially because I live in HK.
