No need to 'mimic' - the german SAC KH 1000 built just for the AKG K-1000 really can't be beat in my eyes (ears).

And it is still readily available and even customizable.

I love my Black Box 'bass heavy' AKG K-1000 with my SAC KH-1000.

I sometimes use my Technics SU-V5 amp, also a winner in my ears.

That's cool - I wasn't criticizing, just expressing my thorough enjoyment of my AKG K-1000 system.

Does the SAC KH 1000 include processor or is it "just" a straight amplifier ?

 

I concur on black box bass heavy (still a bit thin, particularly below 40 Hz ...) and Technics amps. I know the SUVx series, I am using a SU-V8. However, it is the small SU-C-04 that will mop the floor with most, if not all other amps available. It sounds good as it is, gets better if recapped, and absolutely amazing if properly modified. This amp, used within the limits of  its output capabilities, can hold , at the very least, its own when compared to anything, regardless of price.

I opened my driver today and found nothing visibly wrong. Not sure what else to do about the rattle. Any help?
post #261 of 265

Can you give more details about the rattling? Like how it sounds and what side. It might be the glue issue.

post #262 of 265
It rattles on some songs on certain notes. It is very repeatable: if I play the same song that caused rattle, it will cause rattle on the same note every time I play it. It is only in the right channel. I haven't really been able to identify if it is only on bass notes yet

Does it sound like the driver buzzing, or maybe a ringing sound? I would listen to a frequency sweep and see if it is caused by bass.

I'll listen to a sweep and come back with the results.

It's very likely that it is the glue issue.

May you make a picture with strong illumation from the top of the driver, so that we can see the membrane glued...

I hope I can judge if its the glueing process....
