    Elwappo - I am a huge fan of the SA5000, but at that price, I'd suggest possibly investing that money into a FiiO FT-3 if you are looking for that type of headphone. You could also go full-in on an Austrian Audio 'The Composer' to the the ultimate expression of that design.

    The seller Chesebert has been in this community for at least 2 decades. Definitely a seller you can trust. he's an og head-fier before the big exodus to Head-case.

    I've never heard one of these (boo) - but it seems like a good deal for the right person.

    Audeze LCD-24 for $1350

    That intrigues me. If fuzzy memory serves, it came out after 4 as a lighter and more affordable alternative before they committed to making the 4Z at higher price tier, and is supposed to be very similar in sound signature. (even fuzzier memory says something like between GX and 4? that's only from what I've read, I haven't heard the 24 myself)

    Yea it came out around the same time as the LCD-4. Audeze released the LCD-MX4 and LCD-24.

    LCD-MX4 - An LCD-X with the magnet structure of the LCD-4
    LCD-2 - An LCD-2 with the magnet structure of the LCD-4

    My experience with the LCD-MX4 is a headphone that has a very odd frequency response with technical performance that was mildly better than the LCD-X and nowhere near the levels of the LCD-4.

    I haven't heard the LCD-24, but it's supposed to sound even stranger than the LCD-MX.

    My understanding was the tonality of the OG 2.2, but with upgrades that are borrowed from the 4 and the magnesium chassis that improves ergonomics. Not many people had them - mostly the true heads got them and thought that it was a marriage that sounds good on paper, but maybe gets lost in the lineup. The X was more affordable and tuned more 'reference' or the 4 which outclassed the 24 in technicality by the 24 going for more of the 2.1 / 2.2 sound/presentation.

    See, this sorta increases my interest because I've had the X twice and did not like them, but have typically enjoyed the 2. But the comment about it sounding even stranger is, well, I dunno. Audeze box 'o chocolates and all that (is that even still a thing? it's been years since I've paid attention to their quality control).

    For just a second there I thought you were trying to do something very very inappropriate to a boat.
