It's not as stiff as some of the more expensive interconnects (like my Tara Labs which hold shape even after I unplug them). I'm at work now, but from what I recall, you can coil the cord within a 3-4 inch diameter.
I have the D7000's and the Keces 151 mkII and both the Little Dot MKIII and X-can V8 work very well. I keep reading how some claim the Little Dot is not capable of powering the D7000s and how it shortens the life of the output tubes, but I've had this combo for a year and a half and still on the original tubes. The X-can does have slightly tighter bass, but I'd highly recommend either amp.

I hear people mentioning the pronounced highs, but would any owners describe the sounds as sibilant?

What kind of setup do you have that you are experiencing piercing highs?
I just started reading about these today and am very intrigued. My X-can has such a tight fisted grip on the bass, that I welcome a little...
Musical Fidelity X-can V8 is in your price range. That's what I upgraded to after using the Little Dot MKIII for a year. Unfortunately, I don't have any listening experience with your phones so I can't tell you what you can expect. I heard its picky with some very high impedence phones.
Plenty of juice though.

Plus it just sounds better.
I don't have the vinyl record investment just yet to justify a higher priced RCM, so in the mean time I've been using the Spin-Clean which...

I recently sold my Project Debut III after 5 weeks of use. It wasn't bad, but I had this hum that I could not get rid of. I traced it back to a piece of metallic coated cardboard that was attached to the ground on the bottom of the tonearm mount. It was like an antennae picking up hum and once I pinched it...
