our esteemed collection leader Mr BrentC  :Whoohoo:
i am going to have to start a hoarders anonymous group, just so i can join.  :help:

Especially since I just pulled the plug on a pair of LCD2's from the states

Just not too sure how anonymous it is. My wife asked me the other day if the jotty is a bigger amp than what I had on my desk before  :sulky:

And then asked if the 800s were new as she recalls the cans being wood (my fostex ones...)

Here's to hoping the little LCD2's blend in  :angel:

The lyr is brilliant, but you need a good dac or input.
When I drove the highfiman cans the did not need major power. But like everything the more power usually the more control.
The best thing to do is use the classifieds to buy and sell once you have heard and decided, although it usually leads to having a collection of equipment

i would be using my a&k junior as the source for now, and see how it goes.

Ideally, I'd like one after the next 3 weeks (work, etc. plus new DAC should also have arrived)... but that's just me... it's all dependant on what the group decides
