and is willing to pay 100-200bucks for it,
go get the cabledyne usb cable silver reference.
the effect on my d7k is fenomenal.
end of post, do not discuss the science of it pls...or its "worth"
I love my 7000, it sounds fantastic and the design is a piece of art.
But since a few weeks, it's burning under my nails to try the Fostex TH-600.
At the moment, the Fostex isn't really known in Germany, so it could be difficult to hear one in the near future.
Personally, the new Denon series of headphones are a complete disaster. They sound absolutely garbage for the price. You can find them for less than half of what the MSRP is now, and I would assume they will continue to decline. They just don't stack up against the older D2K, D5K, and definitely not the D7K.
i dunno if i'd call the D2k lush and warm. it was v shaped, but very well balanced and with great sub-bass and sparkly treble. either way, the D2k is many times better than the D600. i've been considering buying back a pair of the old denon line sometime this year. maybe a d2k for fun and movies, or another d7k/th600/900.
