Never mind I'm broke again oh well.
I went from ath-ad2000's to the ah-d7000. Everyone seems to say that the ath-ad2000 has the best midrange ever (yes they were awesome too) and I don't feel like I'm missing anything with the ah-d7000's. To me the ath-ad2000 had pronounced or peaky aspects where as the ah-d7000 sounds more even and smooth but still has plenty of sharpness for rock\metal etc. To me they just sound appropriate. I don't know where people are getting hollow from. Maybe it's my source\amp?
If you want to feel like crap, listen to "rejoice" by Pedro the lion.

I came across the millet mini max for sale pre built and supposedly slightly better. But, also more money. Maybe I should factor in the price of screw ups if I make it myself for a more accurate DIY price lol. There's also a used mini for $330 in the classifieds.....hmmmmmmmmm.
How long have you had it? Will you ship to the USA?
By the way, what I'm hoping to achieve with this amp is to improve the sort of slight "walkie talkie" type sound in crappy recordings. You know like...when you turn it up and it starts to lose smoothness because maybe it's mixed too loud or something? I also thought I read that tubes add sound stage which sounds nice too. If I'm off base here just say the word because I may be trying to trick myself into a pointless sidegrade I can't quite afford. The tubes just look...
