I'm looking to do an upgrade so this might move from being in my main rig to a desktop rig. Which is more than fine.
A good piece of equipment like this should stay put. I purchased it 5 years ago and it's still going strong.
late update, but I finally got around to buying these not too long ago. They sound fantastic. I'm really happy with them ... BUT ... I feel the Denon version sounded slightly better, mainly because the cups were deeper and fit around my ears better. I feel the deeper cups gave the bass a bit more air and more boom. But even with that being said, these are by far the best bargain on the planet if you're into synth, hip hop, edm, etc. I'm very pleased with them and...

So I got the 1 ohm mod a long time ago:
"Headphone Linearity" Mod (1 Ohm output)
DACmini CX stock unit comes with 10 Ohm headphone output impedance. To our ears, it offers the most musical, transparent sound. Users have described it as "warm" and "analog-like". However we can lower the output impedance to 1 Ohm, if flattest possible frequency response is desired in your application. Customers have described the sound of this mod as "more...
I couldn't find a thread about it, but how are the new Denons?
I still listen to my D2000s nearly everyday. After pairing it with Centrance DacMini withe 1 Ohm mod, I haven't looked back.
How do the new ones compare? If I had the money, I'd get my D2000s modded with wooden cups and such.
