Nice impressions chico, thanks for sharing. I wonder if Fostex intends to keep stretching the TH lineup downward or if this is it... One nice thing about the old Denons was how it started with the humble D2000s, such a shame they got the axe.
Yeah. Well Fostex came out with the TH600 so they're getting a little more affordable I guess.
It's a shame that Denon discontinued the Dx000 though. I think the new denons are supposed to be very different (and they're ugly).
I'd love to have the chance to audition some of those (specially the HD 800, T1 & TH900) but realistically I'm not sure I'd ever allow myself to splurge on anything that high end so I'm probably better off...
Yes, it's sort of bittersweet auditioning them, knowing how much they cost and that I can't afford them.
Still, I'm happy that I'm fortunate enough to own the Q701s/Anniversaries.
If you like the Q701, I think the HD800s are considered the natural upgrade. If I could own only one flagship (LOL, like I could own more than one! ) the HD800s would probably be the logical choice. I need my soundstage!! If I was going to get a headphone like that, I would need to do a lot more listening/research first.
