Superb stuff! So you've got one now
Congrats! I really don't know whether the K1000 should be in my plan for the near future. It represents a huge expenditure which could be spent on better amplification for my current 'phones. With the amount I can realistically spend, I could only really get the K1000 + a cheapclass T/D amp and that really won't do the K1000 any justice. I guess if I sold my current amp/'phones, I could get a very decent K1k rig going (eg PL Aleph 30/3 or FW F1 + K1000), but that would be madness. There's no guarantee it would be better than what I'm listening to now. Duggeh, which Aleph did you get?
Does anyone have in the UK have a Stax SRM-007II, WooAudio GES or KGSS? I'd like to hear 'em.
