One of the amazon merchants (on amazon.com) has the D5000 for $387. I imagine that's about as good a price as you will ever get on a new pair.

yeah, I know,,, but in that case I will simply get a denon d7000 for 200 dollars more...

sad to say but i'd like to sell my d7000 along with the new EF1. i'd like to go back to speakers. switching my setup to headphones was not a smart move since i'm not finding myself enjoying the headphone sound' as much as i used to.

How are the d7000's for Rock/Alternative music like Muse and Radiohead? After reading this thread I'm thinking about buying them now lol.
post #351 of 7185
Just so happens that I have been listening to Radiohead for the past couple of hours. Beautiful match. I very much like them with Beck, Bjork, Macy Gray, Janes Addiction, Nirvana...

I think the D7000 will probably settle at around the low $500s or maybe even high $400s with some additional discounts when they finally become widely available... Think I'll wait till then to give them a try.

Headroom has graphs up for the D7000

D2000/D5000/D7000

What's so surprising is that the D5000 has more bass than the D7000 till just about 50hz (not that headphones do a great job reproducing stuff below 50 hz). Then they are just about the same with bass levels.

This seems very different from the reports of the D7000 having noticeably more bass than the D5000.

Then again, my own auditory experiences have never matched up all that well with the headroom graphs

The graph doesn't match what I hear from the D7000. I hear deeper bass than I've heard on anything else, with an impact that is hard to describe.

I wasn't a fan of the markl modded D5000s. They sounded great accross the board - but had a "club" sound to them. I will try these as well at a meet one day I'm sure, but I think the Denon sound signature isn't quite for me. I much prefer the GS-1000 which has a more exagerated bass bump, roll off, and more exagerated spike in the high frequencies.... go figure.

FR graphs should be taken with a grain of salt but do tell you some of the characteristics.

I am hoping to jump straight into the deep-end with these soon. Coming from my CX400, I'm sure I'll be impressed.

i waited a while for that graph from headroom and finally went without it for my purchase.

the deal maker for me was my auditioning of the akg701, which has the most balanced looking fr graph in headroom. it sounded spacious next to my old reference senny 650 but the bass, at least bach's Toccata and Fugue, was not that immediate and sharp. the 650 held it's own. so, since i already had the 650's, why not go for the denon ah-d7000 which many have said to have strong bass sections.

then, there was the spacial placement concern, which the grado gs1000, during the audition, showed its colors. in a way, the lack of strong lower octaves was enough to take that model off my christmas list.

so, as i let my new ah-d7000 go through still more breakin' in, i am already happy to say that Toccata and Fugue sounded as good as my old stax sigma with stax class a amps. the denon is far more comfortable than the sigma.
