You sure you want the "solid-state" sounding Af now?
That is literally exactly what I thought...
I did send Craig the .22 Jupiter caps, so that should help.
I am going to give the Elex(and my ears) some burn-in time. I remember my first day or two with the LCD2C, it felt like I was listening with a silk cloth over the driver, so just need to train myself back the other way.
What are your early opinions of the difference? Is it less veiled/more open sounding? The 2C did feel a bit claustrophobic at times.
I am writing up impressions as I listen throughout the day. One note I have is that within about an hour of listening the elex shifted to the "correct" side in terms of presentation. LCD2C have a marvelous tone but they are definitely more "dark" than the elex is "bright."
