This makes sense to me after my experience with the D2000 I have.  Now, mine is full Lawton modded and with just a portable amp (E-11) and adding a ZO it just didn't sound great on the bottom end, and even adding a Magni to the mix left me lacking.    However, when I hooked it up to a vintage Kenwood KA-5700 integrated amp (out of the headphone jack) it really woke them up to the point that they sound as good as my Signature Pro's now.    Serious low end and a very powerful output.  

 

I am looking to trade the Pro's for a D7K so maybe I'll get to see how they respond to the vintage amp. 

 

Thanks for the input.

how do these effect the sound of the Denon's, compared to stock pads?

 

(any change in mids, soundstage, brightness?)

post #6559 of 7143

everything tightens up......more focused. 

if u cant find a jmoney, give this a try.

I'll hold judgement until I see some concrete proof. Every time someone does a pad swap, it's always a positive reaction. I'm a bit more skeptical about that, and I know pad swapping CAN be a negative thing. There are always trade offs.
post #6561 of 7143

no trade offs from the stock d7k pads ..imho. 

 

vs jmoney, i am beginning to appreciate the alphapads, 

its got a more bighall effect, with a solid bassthumpp, good clarity.

i dun see anyone reasonably disappointed with either.

post #6562 of 7143
Bighall effect, tends to mean the midrange will get pushed back. That sounds like a tradeoff that some may not like.
post #6563 of 7143

nah...my setup on both lo or high gain, mids are fine...

typical denon presentation..loved by denon worshippers :P

denonmids are not known for being forward, as in FORWARD.

alhpa definitely better than the stock pads.

 

i hav gone thru classicals to jazz to pops to electronics..

this alphapad is good to go.59bucks.

 

Now listening to celine dion..."Have YOU ever Been"

she is breathing right up to my ears. up close. :P

I'll hold my breath, though if it ends up being true, the Alpha pads are definitely a step up in comfort.

I'm using the Lawton Audio Angle Pads.

 

Sounds like the Alpha's have a similar effect on the sound....  they increase the soundstage (that bighall effect), but at the same time thin out the mids a bit.

I disliked this change at first, but my head got used to it after a few weeks, and now I enjoy them.

 

I also find the Angle pads more comfortable than stock, but these ran me $100.... looks like the Alpha's are a cheaper option. Just wondering about the sonic differences between the Alpha's and Angles.
