Last spring, a mint G-33000 went for $10,000 in Sacramento.
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.
So the front Silver plate has a bit of acid etching from condensation. I'll be selling mine to an outstanding head-fier here.
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.
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.
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.
