the sr71a is good and everything but if you truly want to hear dt880, 990 or other big cans. get a good desktop amp with the money.

A home amp is great, and I love my modified Woo 6 but sometimes you just want to light something up quick or go to another room or walk around or as with the 71A, enjoy its interpretation of the music.

There are only a couple left from what I understand. That 500 went fast.

All SR-71A are gone, just waiting for 10 chassis to arive to ship the last SR-71 which ARE spoken for.
Cheers.

Wow, that's sad. And has been pretty fast too. I'm glad I could get one

Well I have had the SR71A fired up today and I have to say that paired up with the ESW10's, the sound is impressive. The thwack of drums on some of the Grateful Dead stuff is great and the audience sounds can startle me with the realism. The 71A exhibits very good control and frequency range with these phones. Wow, what drive.

How do you like the SR71a fed by the D10?

Is the ESW10 hard to drive?

ESW10s aren't difficult to drive at all, but like Jamato says, the SR71A with the ESW10s provide a particularly good synergy, not only in terms of control & frequency range, but in terms of the filigree of sound. The instrumental separation that can be achieved with this portable set-up is pretty sweet. Another approach is TTVJ Portable Millett, which adds more flesh and blood to the sound with the ESW10JPN, but loses a bit of air.

Also, forgive me, but what is "the filigree of sound"?
It could be translated as: The fine intricate rendering of notes woven into an emotional fingering of sound that wafts upon the air and loses nothing in the transition from electrical impulses to final resting place upon your tympanic membrane.

Or not.

Totally agree, this morning I use SR-71A with my recently acquired AD2000 and it is really impressive. I think this amp pair up really well with Audio Techinca headphones. I was think selling the SR-71A earlier, now I have to listen more on this combo.

Well I just noticed the 71a appears to be available again on a limited basis.
