akg is considering to remake the k1000 but only if it gets enough love on its facebook page - Page 2

Actually there would be tooling expense because that is one of the reasons why they were discontinued. The machines used to make them wore out and were breaking down too often (and costing too much to repair) after having been in service for what 15 years?. If they brought them back, they would most likely have to retool from the ground up.

I think so, and the HD-800 is one of my favorites.

The impedance of the K-1000 is 120 Ohms, the old standard. But that's not terribly relevant because the K-1000 needs 8W of power (according to the manual) and requires a power amp for speakers. No ordinary headphone amp will drive it.

And as much as I love the K-1000, I ain't signing up for Facebook. biggrin.gif

I'd say "ordinary" is a dubious qualifier. There are certainly several headphone amps that will drive them, as you know, but you are right in that your average headphone amp won't drive them.

I thought few members here having a hard time just to get in touch with someone/anyone in AKG at all. If I buy something from any company, I would expect good after service. I hope my k702 never breaks down. So, I'm not sure to support AKG at all. Just a thought of mine.

AKG parts are easy to find, you just have to have the right phone number and person to ask for. The reason it can be difficult for most people is that it goes through the whole Harman conglomerate support system unless you the 2 things I mentioned first.

I love love love how the first few comments are "it's fugly" "looks uncomfortable, like metal against ears will hurt."  Heh.

I certainly do not intend to sign up at Facebook, so if AKG is serious they look for feedback elsewhere as well - like here at Head-Fi.

Our prayers for a revival or upgrade may be heard! **Prays**

I can't see them walking away from the piles of money people willingly drop on top tier headphones just to be altruistic.

Done.

It's been said that each fan on Facebook correlates to a representative value of one billion people. Come on, guys, let's get out and vote!

So only 7 people need to vote and the entire world is covered?

But if 10 people were anti-K1000, that would be negative three billion.
