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


i think they're close enough that the fostex doesn't make sense at 2x the cost (at current used prices). sure, the lacquered cups are pretty, but i still find the d7000 to be very fun to listen to.

In retrospect, that's how I feel about the D2000 vs. the D7000.

I do miss my 7000's sometimes, but side-by-side, it takes careful listening to differentiate them. The D2000 gives me a lot of enjoyment for the $200 I paid for them (before they became so precious on the used market).

The law of diminishing returns can be a very slippery slope.
