a quanto pare il distributore uk ha avuto problemi su tutti e 3 gli esemplari di lcd-4 presenti in negozio.
detto questo riporto delle impressioni di ascolto di un utente di head-fi piuttosto scafato circa la versione con i nuovi driver a 200 ohm e 97 dB di sensibilità :
Got my pair a few days ago and have spent a lot of time comparing them to the LCD-3. They are so precise, so accurate, so engaging, so transparent, so visceral, so organic, and so natural sounding that I could literally pick out every part of the frequency range in the LCD-3 that was wrong as a graph would likely show, such as: dips in different areas of the treble where large amounts were missing and recessed, the upper mids being too elevated/forward, and the bass/lower mid-bass slightly elevated.
My pair have the newest diaphragms which are 97dB/mW@200 ohms. The LCD-3 are 102dB/mW@110 ohms. The LCD-4 require roughly 2.3x the amount of power to drive them. I always run them balanced. My custom Beta22 is set to low gain, and whereas I can drive the LCD-3 to loud volume with a position of 12/24 on my DACT attenuator, the LCD-4 require a position of 21/24 to achieve equal volume.
I'll give you guys more info at a later time, but I'll just sum this up by saying the LCD-4 are by far the best headphones I've ever heard. They are like taking the best parts of the LCD-3, the HD800, the SR009, combining them together, and then doubling the performance. That's really the simplest way to describe them. They are nothing short of spectacular in every way, and I'm running them with a serious reference system.
I started back with the pre-fazor LCD-3, which sounded just as I remembered them, except I didn't realize their upper mids were quite so forward. But in every other area they were exactly as great as I remembered. I spent a decent amount of time with them first (after I had let my system warm up for a solid 6-7 hours).
When I switched to the LCD-4, I was just dumbfounded. Like those who have auditioned my system in the past in my home with the LCD-3 and the HD800, my jaw just dropped. I've heard almost every Stax phone, the infamous HE90, the coveted R10 — hundreds of phones over the years — but nothing prepared me for the sound the came from these new phones. The LCD-4, with their newest diaphragm, are absolutely mesmerizing, opening up a whole new window to reference quality headphone audio that is sure to become the new benchmark for serious audiophiles.
Classical music is not one of my favorite genres to listen to, but I just had to put on Vivaldi's Four Seasons to see how the tonality and timbre of the violins compared to electrostats. I wanted to see how much the transient response had improved. I was taken aback by the sheer awesomeness of the performance; the attack and decay, the thundering realism of all the instruments in the arrangements from the low bass notes to the upper registers of the string instruments came through with such lifelike precision I felt I was actually sitting in a concert hall for the first time ever while listening through headphones!
I played many other genres of music as well, and I will comment on those later. But the LCD-4 is just as much at home with prog rock as it is with jazz as it is with classical, electronic, vocals, and anything else you can throw at it. I don't know how Audeze did it, but they really did it!
se non altro quando le cose funzionano pare funzionino egregiamente.
Anche se rimango sempre dell'idea che il cambio dei driver derivi dall'essersi accorti di un errore di progettazione e che tale cambio venga usato come scusa
per rimediare all'errore fatto....
