Wayne (whose judgement I truly respect), and others, now have me really questioning my beliefs regarding the limitations of the K1000. Actually, my decision to power this headphone with an ASL AQ-1005DT amp was based on advice given to me by Todd several years ago (i.e., prior to his establishing "Todd The Vinyl Junkie"), while he was employed elsewhere. Todd, whose judgement I respect, said that the K1000 sounded terrific when powered by this amp., which he used at the time, at his place of employment. I bought the K1000 from HeadRoom, and a used ASL AQ-1005DT, because of this opinion by Todd, although it's possible that Todd had not yet, at that time, evaluated a K1000 with multi-thousand dollar amps. I hope that in relating this conversaton, which occurred several years ago, I've referred to the correct Todd, and that I've not caused him any offence. In any case, perhaps I'll get the opportunity at the forthcoming National Head-Fi Meet, during April, to hear a K1000 that's powered by some super high quality/high cost amps.
