Wow, a few questions
Let me answer the best I can.
As for a signal path I have the SCPH-1001 going into a Yaqin tube buffer to a RW Audio headphone amplifier. For interconnects I use discontiued Rockford .5 meter Rockford Fosgate Riot interconnects as seen here.http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/produ...7&locale=en_US
Originally the .5 meter were a $70 cable but they are no longer in production so if you can find them they are pretty cheap on EBay. I use these from the CD player to the tube buffer and from the buffer to the amp. I have very good luck with them although I don't have a lot of experience with igher end cables.
The PS1 has an upgraded power cable as well as the power cable for the buffer and the amp.
The amp is custom built by Robin at RW Audio. His main business is car audio line drivers but he also builds car amplifiers, home amplifiers and headphone amps also. While none of those are on his site he can quote you if you are so inclined. Since mine was a prototype and built for me at cost I can't say how much one will run at this time.RW Audio
Yes those are K701's and absolutely use and love them with this setup. For me it is very impressive. I really am not good at describing sound so I don't even want to try, suffice to say I am very happy with this "budget" setup. Excluding the headphones I have a total of under $300 invested between the source, tube buffer, amp, power cords & interconnects.
If I have left anything out just give me a shout back.
