Denon AH-D7000 - Page 383

post #5731 of 7185

When I did own the D7000's, I too enjoyed them very much with a vintage SS receiver.  A 1979 Hitachi HA-330.  Noise floor was higher than I'd like, but the synergy was unprecedented.

I listened to a re-cabled HD600; AKG 701; Beyer DT-990 600 ohm.

 

And I especially like the D7000 with my 1980 Pioneer SX-D7000...dessert anyone?

D7000's with an old mid-late 70's Optonica. One hell of a (not so little) amp that flew under the radar. They sound great together. :)

Yes please, I'll have a heaping helping.

I use my D7Ks pretty much exclusively an SX-980 (and occasionally with an iBasso dap) and love them. Strings sing, bass is ace, hello! cello, and something that rhymes with violin.

You know wink_face.gif I have Strings in the rotation...Denon gets it!

Fine, but now I have to find a set of cans with a model number ending in 980. frown.gif

Until then, here's a quick pic of my D7K-Q.

Very nice Pudu, that Q Cable looks great with them......congrats!!

post #5738 of 7185

Pudu, they look fantastique!

post #5739 of 7185
Thanks.

I adore the Qs - so light and comfortable. I like the natural fibres with wooden cups - it's like wearing a forest on your head tongue.gif .

And the Denons were super easy to re-cable (at least compared to Beyers).

Looks very nice indeed.  I love my Norse Cable as well.

Looks great!

The leather, wood, and cotton really go well together. Plus it avoids the twisty thing that the stock cable sometimes does.

(Apologies for my rubbish photography - it was late one evening, with not enough light, and done with my phone.)

I know people say it's a no-no with these, but I'm listening to Yo-Yo Ma Silk Road Journeys tonight using an OTL amp.

Like a chocolate fudge sunday - I wouldn't want it every night, but the lush timbre, dripping with cello richness is a treat.

Just received my pair of Denon D7000's.  I also have a pair of D2000's that I have owned for some time.  Very impressed with the finish on the wood cups.  Sound quality is a little bit better but I am not sure I will be keeping these.  I may pick up a pair of Audeze LCD2 to go with my D2000's instead.
