I agree with Jan 100%! The AKG K-1000s do sound better with a tube amp! In my case, I use the Audio Valve RKV tube amp with my K-1000s ear speakers, and I get excellent results from this duo.

I do own a Norh SE-9 also. However, the RKV beats it by a mile. If I were to grade the sound, I would give the RKV an A, while the SE9 gets a B- or a C+.
