Of course, if you are exclusively listen to fine classical and jazz recording you can further specialize to the HD800 or certain AT models but if you are like me, who listens different genres and not top-notch recorded music this is a great all-rounder.
I've had the HD-800 twice and I only miss them when Ilisten to well classical. The DX700 tackles admirably with it, but I know the HD-800 can do it even better.
How is the soundstage & imaging compared between this & the HD800.
Besides the clarity, the soundstage width is like the #1 selling point for the HD800.
I read over & over that the soundstage & imaging is very good for a closed can, but doesn't compare to the best open cans.
Would you say that it doesn't compare to the HD800 at all in that aspect?
