Just want to tell someone... anyone... that my K1000 arrived today. I felt like a kid with a new toy, I could hardly contain myself when I saw the FedEx box! Had to control myself not to rip apart the box to try them out!!!
Very very pleased, listened to them earlier, initial impressions... bass was slightly lacking compared with the HD600 but still... WOW! Sound outside of my head. Bargain at $359!!! Wallet still hurts but not as much! Thanks Headroom & thanks specifically to Mike for your patience & prompt action.
... listening to them again right now. I've let it run in for a couple of hours already, not much change obviously. Bass extension is definitely there. Trying to get used to how it looks but I look damn wierd! I don't care! I don't want to take them off!
My NAIM NAIT 2's 15W/Channel drives the K1000 quite well, only need less than a 1/4 turn of the volume. More than that it just becomes too loud/bright for me.
Gonna let it run overnight & have a listen then. I wish I did this for a living!
