Great review, I enjoyed it and I completely agree with your description of the sound signature on the 701. Enjoy your sounds. Life goes by too fast not relish the things we love that bring us pleasure.
AKG K 701 & Purity Audio K.I.C.A.S Caliente
The AKG and the Caliente are similar: You get what you pay for. I absolutely think the KICAS is a gorgeous amplifer. A beautiful piece of metal to look at, really. The feeling of the knob is firm and smooth, just like the finish on the amp. I like their approach to keep it clean & simple.
You turned on the firm, smooth knob? I like where this is going..
I'm also leaning towards A...
I know I'm going to get a lot more pleasure out of a new pair of headphones than a DAC.
Other opinions or suggestions on this matter?
....by the way I think the AKG's were made for Johnny Cash's music. Bliss.
