K1000 vs Omega 2 vs W2002.

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I need some funding to work on a project for my kids, and might have to let go 2 out of 3 rigs. I'm confused because I love them all and hate to let go any of them. If they are yours, which one would you keep ?

No comment ?

I think I might let them all go for the ease of the decision...

NOS indicates tubes those were designed and made a few decades earlier. I've learned and found that many NOS versions can contribute significantly better sound quality in tube amps.

Yes, tubes burn out like light bulbs, but at a longer lifespan.

I haven't heard a single piece of gear on that list, but I can tell you I'd be happy with any one of those combinations.

You think like me. I love them all. Each has its own characters.

Sell the kids, gear is more important. And cheaper.

Everyone has kids, how many have a K1000 or O2? Really, answer me that. You could probably get a decent price for the kids but steer clear of ebay, they can be a pain.




KIDINNNNNNNNG, or am I?

;p

If I unload the kids.... my boss at home is going to list me on the bay as soon as she finds out.

Keep the O2 and WooAudio.

For the price of K1000 these days, you can get a half decent set of speakers.

it depends?

I love ATs but in your situation i would let the W2002 go. The price you can get for it right now as compared to what it cost 5 years ago NEW makes it a no-brainer. It was cheaper as the W5000 is today, W5000 = 120000 Yen, W2002 = 100000 Yen, take off the usual 25-35% for it's real streetprice)
Also it's a quite a step below the W5000 technically, though it has a different tonality and soundstaging.

From all ATs its my least favourite due to price/sq ratio, taking the current going price. For the old price it was ok and if you take the optics into consideration a great buy, but with todays 2nd hand prices, "no way"



Not a big fan of the K1000 so i would let that one go too..

I havent heard the O2 but from reading alot about it i'd say its the best allrounder.. or to say it in another way: neither the AKG nor the AT are big allrounders in my opinion. ymmv

I would go with the Dynamics. I had entirely too much money tied up in the Electrostatics and little variety in the sound available.

I heard K1000 once, and really like it. keep the k1000.
