    This went out a day later than I thought, but it should be at Soups place tomorrow. I'll have my impressions for this and the the Dongle DAC loaners up this weekend.

    Are you sure! You're someone I really wanted to hear these as you had the LCD-X for so long and this is a huge improvement IMO. And you're a fan of orthos in general.

    Can I move you down the list instead if this is just a bad time?

    Hi Whitney
    After reading Marv's review and that he was using an EC Studio B with WE 300b ( this is what I have) and he really liked it I would love to get in on the loaner if that's still possible. Just the headphones please
    best,
    Josh

    Ditto, been disappointed in all orthos/planars I've heard up to this point and really curious now. @rhythmdevils please add me to the loaner.

    Hi Whitney,
    Not sure why the dislike, I had canceled the loaner before because it was thought it did not work well with tube amps, Marv says it works so would love to hear it with my rig. Everyone reported it was very good with solid state amp. What ever works best for you
    best,
    Josh

    I added both of you to the list. I’m really happy you’ll get to hear these!

    So sorry I just noticed that haha. I just fat fingered it and didn’t notice. I switched it back. I’m of course glad you’re going to try them out. :)

    when Marv is done with his modded pair I’ll probably update them with my latest tweaks and send them out with either an LaiuX or on its own to the people who just want to hear the headphones. So that should get this moving faster.

    dammit, please add me back to this loaner.
    it’s obvious that RD is The Ortho Whisperer, and shall see if Oor, Vali 2+ and Gryphon can light the LCD-X candle.

    Goodie! Just the headphones then? No LauX? Either way is fine, the LauX just gives you a reference in case your amps don’t synergize with Audeze’s weird drivers.

    Well it’s more Audeze’s drivers not your amps. I’ve heard some great amps that recessed the vocal range but they still sounded great in every other way and you may not notice anyways I’m very in touch with how they’re supposed to sound. I suspect the OOR will be fine.

    Cheers!

    If there is still room, would love to get in line for the headphones-only loaner. I’ve got a Studio B as well but with lowly JJ 300Bs ;-)
