Looking forward to it, K601/HD600 comparisons are pretty rare here.

Bingo. I took my 601s to a hi-fi store to audition a few pieces of kit and came away very unimpressed with NAD CDPs and amps which had received rave reviews in many magazines. They just dont play well together IMO. Even my modest CA integrated does a better job with the 601s than the NAD did, but you really need to get a dedicated SS HP amp with plenty of grunt to bring them to life. I went the other way and bought easier-to-drive cans.
Must say that this is the most controversial headphone I ever heard !
Some music is unbelievable with akg k601 and it makes me go back and listen to some long forgotten tracks and that is so cool !
But with some music it sucks and it sucks badly !
AKG K601 is not by any means all-round headphone
Love them and hate them at same time
