Oops I meant to write "venerated"

 

Was it really worth mentioning? This is why all the posts in head-fi are like 180 pages :P

Usually i wouldn't link to something i sale. But since a NOS K340 is very rare and special, i wanted you guys to know ;D  I paid 320€ for this one and it was worth it <3

Also, if anyone is looking for a quick, cheap way to power AKG K340's, they sound okay with the Geek Out 1000.

It sounds just OK (sort of, barely) with GO + Vali. But it needs the warmth of a real tube amp to integrate the treble properly.

I just got the plush pads from China... they are so comfy and do improve the sound a bit

Really? My K271 velours arrived today too. I've installed them but I haven't listened yet.

I noticed that the earhole is a little smaller than the stock pleathers; I might try to stretch that without tearing it.

Anyone tried the AKG K340 with a Schiit Lyr 2?

Just received a mint condition K340 from an Ebay seller and did some listening this afternoon using my Kenwood Eleven MkIII receiver and a modified Sony Playstation One.  The Kenwood drives them extremely well, with ample power to spare.  Years ago I had a pair of Martin Logan Sequel II electrostatic speakers; the K340s remind me of the Martin Logans.  Transparent, detailed, quick treble and midrange and slightly slower and recessed bass.  With that said, I can live with the bass - despite their age, the K340s are a great listening experience.
