PS: There is also a new thread http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f113/a...-links-412862/
Let me provide two links to add to it.
For the artist in you "billyearl" (and the rest of you all) here is a "blackened red-fish", black K-1000 and it is the only one. The Chef of this exquisite recipe is Headfier "Meyvn".
"Billyearl" your friend's "AduioD" remarks on the K-1000 are mostly in agreement with my findings. And our Chef is a Grado lover as well as a Senn lover (now that beats me, but I guess he is a Maharajah kind of guy like a lot of us).
it is black alright but not any darker sounding.
To give you an idea of the experimentation I am about to go through please read Headfier's "Ferbose"
post on "jjcha"'s K-1000 appreciation thread.
(and Richter it is Ferbose not ""Verbose"")
Using the multi-track Sound Forge 9 along with the Ozone 4 plugging I will have Lynx2 B drive the sub-woofers, speakers and headphones and control and equalize the 3 amps involved independently and with Ozone 4 I will manipulate the nonlinear characteristics of the amps to fine tune this complex system.
Let God (I mean my Amon Zeus polymorphic rig test bed in my homonym thread) Help me.
