Attaching your Denons to the speaker taps of a vintage amp is a great way to get to try out the Fostex cans.

Please make sure the negatives of the speaker taps are grounded altogether if you decide to have a female TRS connected. Otherwise it is safer to terminate with 4pin XLR.

:mad: Gimme back my D7000!

I'm not surprised to hear these reports of the D7000 being so different when hooked up to a lot of power. I had actually never been very fond of these cans and wondered what the fuss was about. The negative impression certainly made me hesitate to even try the TH900s if they were even a little bit like the D7000s. 

 

But then I tried the D7000 with a fairly powerful amp in the Lyr. It was suddenly like a different headphone. Much nicer stuff when amped up...I think it also helped that the Lyr was less warm than the other amp I had been using, which may be better for such a bassy HP. Anyway, I view the D7000s very differently now and am curious about the TH900s.

I remember the Lyr was known to blow D7000 drivers.

I run mine mostly out of the headphone jack of a Spec1/Spec2 system (250 wpc) and it is unreal.  Did the same with a TH600 I had for 10 days  and was in heaven going back and forth between the two.  Power seems to bring out the beast in these.

If you turn on the Lyr while the D7000s are plugged in the jolt can blow the drivers.

Yep, I had not heard about the D7000s in particular on that issue, but I do unplug before turning on and off as I had heard of the potential for damage with various headphones on the Lyr at that moment.

I've never done this - maybe I should begin the practice. I'd rather be safe than...

Don't think I want to practice it - looks painful.

I would unplug the headphones before turning it off. That's the safest thing to do.
