Got Schiit Loki in and EQ is a fun way to tweak LCD-2C and HD800 for both analog and digital sources. Going to hold off ADI-2 DAC for now. Feb 10, 2018

      LCD-2C in the house. Surprisingly they sound good out of T3. Aggressively good :)

        Listened to them briefly during our last meet and had similar impressions on my T3.

      Is there any reason for a computer audio noob to get RME ADI-2 Pro over ADI-2 DAC?

        In addition to the AD stage, the ADI-2 Pro might be better when using the headphone output in balanced mode (more power + additional DAC chip), but we'll have to wait for some direct comparisons to see what the difference is.

        So if using only ADI-2 pro as DAC, the balanced out is the only way to do PRT, right?

        No, you can do PRT with any amp so long as you have a balanced connector on the headphone. It's just that if the amp has an unbalanced 1/4" output you start with a 1/4" -> 4 pin XLR adapter before proceeding as usual for the PRT. I do this with the Valhalla 2.

        You are correct @Vtory. I'm exploring options currently and probably will end up just buying a new Yggy and selling Gumby here or elsewhere. I figured it is worth a try to do a trade here.

        Yeah. I was surprised that Amazon had it listed and Discogs did not. You might just have to suck it up and pay the asking price. The last few stupid priced CDs I bought were a case of pay up or miss out -potentially- forever. So, what's it worth to you?

        I think Florida's kind of it's own thing, but I suppose I'll accept that answer. For the record, I live in TN and say "you guys", so I'm equally odd.

        Anyway, sorry for the derail. Back to government shutdowns and good tunes.

        Synergy is great with those two, depending on tubes it's quite the neutral setup. Worked well with 650k for me, hd800sdr needed EQ for my taste.

        Have not heard the Yggy, but I have a Gumby and I think it’s slightly warm and thick sound would complement the slightly lean sounding T3. Sounds like a good setup

        I previously had the speakers sitting on top of a media case. The stands drastically cleaned up the bass and the angling of the tweeter downward brought in much needed air and sparkle.
