Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to your impressions, Oregonian! Your aged ears may be able to tolerate the treble better than mine, which are very sensitive some areas.
Well guys,these old ears think the Pro900's are, after listening for ten minutes, really good. I'm hesitating to overstate it, but going through my KA-5700 the sound is amazing.
Seriously, I'm impressed. This S-Logic I guess is why the soundstage sounds so wide, and the bass is so crisp and clean. And the treble IS bright but with 51 year old ears it is actually about perfect.
Geez, if the Sig DJ is THAT much better than these, how good will they sound?!
I know it's first impressions, but my gut feel with D600 was the same, as was with the Mad Dogs (in that case I knew right away I didn't like them). These are keepers.
Next up....to get the SECOND KA-5700 that I found for my office.
