Denon AH-D7000 - Page 28

Yes But "Etronics" is not a listed authorized dealer. I really don't think that Denon would turn you away if you have a problem down the road.

better hurry only 3 pairs left...so they say...$643.76

I ordered my pair this morning. Supposed to be here first of next week. Amazon.com is an authorized Denon dealer.
I think I'd rather wait a week or two and get them from JR for $550. They're an authorized dealer as well.

Subtle,
Has anyone spoken to anyone at J&R. I've already dropped change for them at J&R but I'm curious when they think new stock may arrive.

I called Etronics and they told me to order through Amazon. So I am assuming that Amazon would be the "dealer" irregardless of where the HP's came from..? Maybe I'm wrong. Amazon are terrific to deal with. I had a problem with an a-hole that sold me a defective DVD. The guy refused to refund my money but, after following Amazon's simple protocol Amazon refunded me...cool!

"I think I'd rather wait a week or two and get them from JR for $550. They're an authorized dealer as well."

Subtle, I hear you man. I put myself on the waiting list at J&R last time the price was low. But when they came back in stock they wanted $999. What the...
Go ahead and splurge that extra $93.76, you got it.

What do you mean that you put yourself on the waiting list and they wanted 999$?

If you place an order with them, you will lock in your price (549$) until they have them in stock. They can't change your price once you place an order. I'm willing to wait and save the $93...no rush for me

I told them to contact me when they were back in stock. When they did the the price was up to $999. Sorry for the cornfusion.
OK...but I'm going to be listening to mine before you...heehehe

Etronics is a solid store. I ordered a car stereo from them a few years ago and was happy with the service. The store has decent ratings. They are definitely not like all the shady sellers you see in the online camera market.

I don't get this whole authorized/un-authorized dealer business. Etronics is not a scam company and I'm sure they got their headphones by legal means. It's not like they are buying them from Headroom.

I can completely understand Denon not wanting to support a headphone that was purchased out of a van. But these "unofficial" dealers are obviously getting their products from legal suppliers. Who are these suppliers getting their headphones from? It must be straight from Denon.

Honestly, is this just Denon's way of discouraging people from playing less than MSRP for headphones?

If that's the plan, it ain't working. J&R is authorized and is undercutting all the nonauthorized dealers in price. Must as well buy from them...you just have to wait until they get more stock.

i bought my denon ah-d7000 last december from j&r when they advertised it at 599.

i went down to the store after calling the 800 number and reserving a pair. i also bargained for a lower price than the 599 at the time and eventually got it at 569. 616 with nyc taxes.

after 1 and a half months, they baby rocks but it did forced me to spend a lot more on amps, cables, and sources.

so be ready to upgrade your act after these cans.

So are there already some LA7000 owners out there?

I decided to support HeadRoom, and put in my order last night. I will not mention the price, except to say that it is quite a bit more than $550 (call if you want to know the price; it will not show up in cart, or even after you order it). I am impatient enough that it is worth the price difference to me to get them right now (early next week), and I would rather support HeadRoom than J&R.

I pretty much do not care about the HD800 at this point (I canceled, and now consider the HD800 to be just another unobtainable headphone that I'll probably never buy). I guess I just wanted a high-end headphone, but NOW.

edited to add: also, would rather go with a known good that is cheap (in comparison) than an unknown, but most likely very good, very expensive headphone with unknown amping requirements. I am not ready for the HD800.

I hear ya ferraro...we got plenty of time with the HD800 IMO. Let the new wear off and get a LOT more real world reviews in and then we'll see. Meanwhile set aside ten a week and in 140 weeks...BAM...you got the $1400.

I would like to know that as well. I did the Markl mods on my D5000s, and I perceived a sound quality change (albeit very subtle) - Bass tightened up a bit, and the pad mods seemed to widen the soundstage a little bit - all at the expense of the mids getting pushed back a tiny bit.

But as for the D7000s - they sound just right to me, and I wouldn't dream of modding them as I think they sound great just as they are. If I had to nit-pick something about the D7000s, it would be the cord - it can become unruly and tangle easy unless you are vigilant about keeping it tamed (as I am). Also, the soundstage could stand to be a tiny bit wider. Other than that, (as little Red Riding Hood would say) they are juuuuuust right.

What did Headroom charge? Was it more or less than $643.76?
