I have been missing a central place for all this, so I decided to create one. Hope you find it useful.
Thanks to 'Richter Di' for his 'Everything about the K-1000 (K1000)' thread, which got me thinking about creating this thread.
The 'Other (non Head-Fi)' links are taken from this thread. Thanks!
The K1000 were introduced in 1989/1990, and were in production until late 2005. Apparently they were discontinued because the machines used to produce them were worn out.
A total number of around 11,000 units were produced.
