Cool, thanks for the suggestions!!
By the way, I'm looking forward to the LA regional meet on July 20. Will any other K1000 owners be there?
+1. The "bass light" I do not find them light in the bass when powered by a sufficient speaker amp.
I cannot use the k1k's for very long anymore, I find them fairly fatiguing now. It's not the imaging but rather the high-frequency energy just bears heavily on my ears after a while.
There's probably some adjustments I can make to the chain, like the power amplifier.

Here is my audio setup:
Laptop -> Audioengine D1 DAC/Amp -> Trend Class T Amp TA-10.2 -> AKG K1000 + Kenwood SW-40HT subwoofer
I have now been listening for an hour and the headphones, sorry - earspeakers - are just disappearing on my head, it's amazing...
