 In my experience, any amp that works well with the K702 also does just fine the the Q701. There's not a night and day difference between them.There might be some exceptions if the amp is way too colored or too dark, but this almost never happens. Even the DT-880 32ohm is harder to drive than most people claim Don't even think it's good just straight out of a portable player. BTW I actually think the HD-650 sounds good on most any desktop amp. It loves the O2 and Magni. My...
 I agree with this despite not being a fan of the Vali for much else. The Vali sounded nearly like a clone of Headroom Micro Amp (and upgraded power supply) with the Q701. That amp cost me around $350 when I bought it a few years ago. The Vali being able to nearly match that sound for $350 is pretty impressive. I still have a hard time suggesting the Vali unless it's for an AKG. I actually did not really feel the Vali added anything to how the Q701 normally sounds. Sounded...
 Based on memory I didn't like them much at all. I think they made the DJ100 too dark. I didn't try them on the TB version though. I actually even tried to mod the HM5 pads to get the sound to improve with no luck.  Nope, but someday I will. They do look way too huge though. I don't think there is a pad out there that can improve upon the M50 pads (for the DJ100). I hope someday I'll find something even better. In an unrelated note I found an old beyerdynamic DT-220 closed...
 The clamping force goes away after a few days of use. They're also a bit more "creaky" until they're used for awhile.
 Honestly, I wouldn't suggest the Q701 or K702 with any amp under $100 really. You might just be majorly disappointed. Few budget portable amps i've tried work very well with it. I don't even suggest the O2 or Magni. O2 is ok with the Q701, but nothing special.I actually felt the E9 sounded better with the Q701, but it's not technically as good. You could temporarily use a docked source like an Ipod Touch until you can upgrade to a better source. Even get by with a full...
I know this sounds silly, but I bet if they sold a Modi with USB AND Optical, people would buy it. Even at $175-$200. Don't even know if this is even possible. I guess at that price I could just buy both.   Modi is definitely their best budget product IMO. I bet it's also their best seller, but maybe not..   Something in between the Modi and Bifrost would be cool. I can't really afford the Bifrost. Pretty sure someone already asked for this.
 Your answer is easily found and it's also in the first post in this thread.It should be common knowledge now that the Q701 is warmer and slightly more bassy than the K702.My idea is that it's due to some minor improvements with the design. K702 for me is much thinner and more analytical. It also has a larger soundstage and is more airy sounding perhaps.Q701 just sounds much smoother and more natural sounding. It really comes down to preferences.Some hear them the same way...
Bridges at Toko-Ri - 7.5/10   This one would have ranked higher but the main characters all die at the end. It's as if they took the easy way out and sort of wanted to send us a stupid message. Maybe it's based on what happened in real life? Doubt it.   Anyway, this is an old movie about a Korean war pilot who has to go and blow up bridges in North Korea and gets shot down. William Holden plays the main character.   The first part involves Mickey Rooney getting in...
 I saw this two times in the theater and liked it but never wanted to ever buy it or watch it again. To me it felt like someone had filmed their dreams or memories of their family despite some of it not making sense. It really doesn't have much storyline obviously. It reminded me of the time we watched all this old film my grandmother took back before I was even born. In it my mom was probably less than 8 years old. The director's next movie is the most boring movie ever...
 He's one of my favorite director's but a couple of them have bored me to death. I didn't really get the appeal of "Still Walking" but I can appreciate it more a year after watching it. There's not too much to it and maybe younger people can't relate to the characters in the movie until they're older. The movie sort of reminds me of those Yasujiro Ozu movies where I found them to be a snore fest when I was 16-18. Now I love them. Koreeda's best movies are "I wish", "Nobody...
