it looks like a cross between the AD2000 and the ATH-W series, with most of the construction being closer to the AD2000 with only the closed wood cup and leather earpads resembling an ATH-W can IMO. I like the older style better.
(edit: well, the headband is slightly different from the AD2000 with the flat rods compared to the round ones on the AD2000, but otherwise looks very similar.)
the amp seems to be a replacement for the HA2002. the specs and the price seems to be exactly the same, with only the look modified to follow the W5000 design. guess this makes me feel less bad that the HA2002 got discontinued (I guess to make room for this) and I missed my chance to get one.
Raffinato means "refined" in Italian?
