Default Audeze LCD3 Incredible HPs

Just received a set of Audeze LCD3 head phones today. I am amazed at how great they sound. I am looking forward to spending some time with them over the next few days.

Hi Ed, does the BHA-1 drive them with enough juice? In other words, do you have
the slight hint that the LCD-3s require a bit more power?

I have not found any issue with the BHA-1 driving the Audeze LCD3 in my system. I have the input to the BHA-1 coming from the C2300. Works GREAT. These head phones (to me) are perfect. The Highs/mids/bass is like listening to my system speakers.(well almost-PDC).

Bryston BHA-1 in balanced is another step up in sound quality. Double the voltage to each driver in the Balanced mode.

Thanks Ed, good to hear. This combo is exactly what I've been looking at lately.
I'm not sure I can sway the LCD-3s, but if not, I can shift my focus to
the LCD-2s.

Good news on the BHA-1 with the LCD-3. Was to pick up my BHA-1 yesterday, but has been pushed back to Tuesday. The LCD-3 works wonderfully with the Woo WA6 & Sophia Electric tubes (and others - just that much better with the Sophia Electric). Did try them with the Schiit Valhalla 2 and it is a big step-up putting in the WA6. Not that the Valhalla 2 is bad, but the WA6 is a fair bit better.

Rolled the BHA-1 in yesterday and the LCD-3 works best with it. Will give Serge's option of feeding the WA6 (tubes) from the BHA-1 (solid-state) a try shortly. Still waiting for my DAC-to-RCA cable to arrive.
