AKG K1000 - A collection of information and links - Page 2

post #16 of 64
He's saying that the K1000 (and other expensive headphones), are not as good as everyone says they are, that because we listen to them all from portable music players instead of proper amps, we can't understand his point of view, if we were to do that, we would see that our money is badly spent and that what we should do is buy better amps and headphones made by sony to go with them.

What I can't work out is what makes a driver good, or how there can be no perfect headphone except that ones from Sony are the best.

Yeah right!
My Signature 30.2 and Beta 22 are not "real" amplifiers (to use your term), and not expensive either. Cause $3,000 is just pocket money, right!

Portable they are as well...

I don't know why you guys even bother replying to him.
He speaks of lemons, but I can see that he has a serious case of sour grapes...

One means meat is another man's poison, ignorance is bliss and all that...

Reorganized and added a lot of links.
Sorted them all by posting year, since that makes it easy to maintain. But also quite easy to follow, at least imo.

Any ideas or missing links, please respond!

(MASTERTECH) Dudes a Troll. It's not worth addressing. I will say, I prefer the K-1000 to the R10. Just my preference though.

I found it out-dated (summer 2007) and also lacking basic information though. So I decided to make a fresh one.
I think this comment is much more honest than what you wrote initially in your first post:

Yeah, I think in general you are right,that my thread is outdated - allthough your comment "summer 2007" is again a little bit misleading as I included "06-16-2008" all the changes you brought forward plus clearly stating the work was done by you

So you start a new one with a new structure: ok.

For the sake of the interested K-1000 lovers, the one thing you should assure is that all the threads we allready had brought together in the one thread are also in the new one. It would be great if you could take care regarding this.

Not more honest imo, just more detailed/specific.
Example that your thread lack basic information about the K1000. Besides linking to threads/pages who of course does.

I am aware of that. But all I did were to fix the broken links after the out-take in late 2007.
Arrest me if I am wrong, but I don't think any new links have been added since before the out-take. Meaning summer/fall 2007. Which of course are understandable since you no longer own a K1000.

If so, then I am sorry for quoting the wrong time.

I will [can] make a note of that. That your work influenced me to make my own, and that I copied a handful links.
In the current list there are just those external links that I have copied from your thread though. Every Head-Fi link I have searched up myself and copy pasted/sorted.

Not trying to take away credit for your work in that other thread at all, just had an idea of how to make it more informative and up-to-date.

As I allready tried to bing accross: Do whatever you like and as you rightly said, I do not own any K-1000 anymore, so go ahead. All a question of style.

A jolly good collection! Like the first version was/is. I'm tempted to buy the K1000 just to use this list for issues.

Good job.
