    *SOLD*

    Snagged these off the gasspasser a week or so back, decided I'm not man enough to handle these now as to when I had them years back. Seriously the clamp and weight I can't do lol.

    Comes with the wood box, chart, flat xlr+ se cables, condition of wood is around 8/10 - pads are like-new.

    Asking $450 shipped; friends/contribs only plz.

    @Gaspasser you know my rigs and preferences so send a PM, talk me into these as the price is right and a second headphone as planars might be fun?

    Sell it to the guy with the Eddie Current Ultralinear. He needs an R2.

    Was it that good on the Ultralinear? I am disappointed I wasn't able to snag it to play with my E_Schaff modded HE6.

    Oh yeah. I just didn't write a whole lot about it because, well, Ultralinear is a one-off amp and LFF stuff is super rare. Absolutely what I'd consider to be everything you could want in a planar rig.

    But yeah, someone buy this LCD-2r2

    @ChaChaRealSmooth I also have a LCD 2 rev 1 you can play with sometime. Partly modded but more to explore. Plays well with the DNA too. The modded HE6 is better in every way aside from the bottom octave phatness IME, but TH900 bottom octave ticks my marks even more. At this price the lcd2r2 is a good buy tho

    dudez with ultra linear amps + unicorn tubes or similar fetish devices:

    have no idea if I'll keep these LCD2-R2 for 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years.
    they may end up for sale relatively soon if they don't uncover some forgotten sonic trait with shock and awe.

    should they end up being resold, will continue the low pricing and move to a different home unless planar love is rekindled in some way.
    peace and love.

    I might have to borrow these/convince you to sell them to me if they are a good pair.

    I remember when I heard Craig's good LCD2s at a meet and they were head and shoulders better than my LCD3 due to the ongoing quality control issues at Audeze back then.

    @Mr.Sneis is the best! He shipped out faster than I needed, and everything arrived in great shape!

    This was a very high value purchase for the price! These are a bit warmer than Autuer, and don't have quite the air in the treble- but all in all first listens on the Af and the BW2 are favorable for sure.

    Not sure how long I'll keep two pairs of headphones since I only have 2 ears,
    but if ever selling these LCDr2 will certainly pass along the low price deal.

    cheers all!
