I think of a "basshead" as someone who wants loud,exaggerated bass (think car subs.) That description does not fit me, so I do not consider myself a basshead. I merely like bass at a natural level (like DT770s) rather than artificially attenuated (like ATH700s.)
Amazing this thread still alive.
HD_Dude good luck with the Denon's, sound good fun ahead in that case! For Solid State Amps, check out Skylab's thread, he links a bunch of SS that he reviewed. And there are a few others with good comparisons.
