Last spring, a mint G-33000 went for $10,000 in Sacramento. :tongue_smile:

 Not sure but pricing seems to be between $2500-$4000 condition dependent. my own unit isn't mint because the cat who originally owned left it inside his garage UNCOVERED since the '80s. :mad:

:deadhorse:

So the front Silver plate has a bit of acid etching from condensation. I'll be selling mine to an outstanding head-fier here.

Transported my G-8000 to Okinawa in 85 in hopes of repair. (made in Japan maybe repaire in Japan?) to no avail, no parts, no Sansui. I buried it their on the Island. I Got introduced to Denon Cans then but could not buy them in BX. But have um NOW,,,& I like the signature.

I had Edition 8, and liked them a lot for comfort and sound. Just a little bass light to me.

What were sound quality differences between the Alpha pads and Lawton pads on your LA7000? Anyone compare the J Money pads to the Alpha pads on the LA7000 or D7000 and if so, what were the SQ differences?

The Alpha's seemed to make the soundstage a bit closed in and the bass not as lovely.  Hard to explain it but the Lawton angle pads just fit my D7000 sound better.  I have Alpha's on my D2000 and love the sound it brings them.

Same for me, in addition alpha pads generates some heat, the bass is just weird. I cannot find anything good about the alpha pads for D7000.

agreed. my trial with the Alpha pads on the D7000 lasted all of a minute. it wasn't a good match. you lose a lot of the bass, and not in a good way...and the mids are very recessed. i've never tried the lawton angle pads...but the alpha pads are a no go.

Thanks for the replies. I won't waste my money on the Alpha pads for my LA7000. I bought the Lawton angled pads a few weeks ago. My initial impression of them is that they emphasized the treble a bit too much. Maybe I will give them one more try. I want to like them because they are more comfortable than my J Money pads. I like the J Money pads for their smoother highs and balanced sound quality. I would like to find a pad that gives the comfort of the Lawton pad and the SQ of the J Money. The J Money pads opening is a little tight on my ears. Any suggestions?

Maybe try the stock Fostex pads. Very large opening and they come on the TH600 and 900 so they must know something.

For anyone interested, the Audeze rugged case fits the D7000 perfectly, keeps it nice and safe when transporting it.

I have upgraded to the TH900.

 

Is it much of an upgrade though? I had a shootout of both side by side at a recent headphone meet, and couldn't tell any difference in sound. I'm beginning to suspect Fostex pretty much remade the 7000s (which of course they originally designed) with nicer wood cups?

It absolutely is; across the board.  Much cleaner, instrument separation, soundstage is way bigger, highs are better, bass is way tighter and WAY punchier.  If you don't hear any difference, you are lucky and I envy you!  Save your cash. :atsmile:

It's darn close.  I have them both, both Lawton modded and recabled.  Darn close.

I'd like a second listen in a quieter environment than the SoCal official headphone meet. I heard both through an old Marantz receiver headphone out; not optimal but good enough to get an idea. Words like MUCH and WAY seem excessive when I'm pretty sure 9/10 people would agree the differences are subtle; I respect your opinion though.

There might have, as they have differents cups, different sensitivity, and different pads.

 

But I too, was not able to find any audio differences between the two. It was during a short public audio session,
