A great product from a genuinely nice guy at an affordable price. What more could you ask for? :)

I'm mostly excited because I'm really experiencing the "whoa I didn't know that sound is in this song" thing I've seen others talk about.  I still like the D2Ks but obviously their forte is sub-bass and not accuracy so much.

 

I'm thinking about buying both the Mad Dogs + alpha pads and also the D2k / D5k with Lawton angle pads.

 

As they are both 'closed' phones, in your opinion which would you say has the larger soundstage?.. the D2k or MD.

I have the D5000 with angled pads and the MD with alpha pads.  I'm not certain that soundstage is anything more than a subjective characteristic.  The Denons do not isolate nearly as well and they leak quite a bit of sound. Because of this, it might seem that the D5K have a broader soundstage. The Denons are more "open", for sealed phones, and normally open headphones appear to have a wider soundstage.  Based off what reviewers have claimed, I would not be able to comment on the D2K, as there is usually a bigger jump in quality between the D2K and D5K as there is between the D5K and D7K, despite both lower-priced models sharing identical drivers.

I guess that's what getting referenced at CNET does for business. biggrin.gif (Yes, that's where I first heard of them, and yes, I recently bought a pair.)

I'd love this.  Any way to convert from the normal white stickers to this look?

Just bought a pair this morning with alpha pads....got an email only a few hours later that they shipped. Pretty awesome service.

post #4660 of 6388

So recently I ordered a pair of MDs, and I'm wondering how well my current amp will drive them. It's a Little dot MK III with Mullard M8161 driver tubes and the stock power tubes (Considering making an adapter and using "Tung-sol 5687 D getter black plates")

 

Specs:

 


  • SEPP (Single-Ended Push Pull) OTL in Class-A
  • Frequency response: 12 hz~100 Khz (-1dB)
  • THD+N: 0.15% (80 mW @300 ohm)
  • Power Output:
  • 350 mW @ 300/600 ohm
  • 300 mW @ 120 oh
  • 100 mW @ 32 ohm
  • Variable Gain: 3,4,5, or 10x
  • Recommended Load Impedance: 32 ohm~600 ohm
  • Input Impedance: 50K ohms
  • Pre-Amplifier Output Impedance: 600 ohms
  • Pre-Amplifier Gain: 3-10x (also controlled via gain switches)
  • Pre-Amplifier Voltage: 10V RMS
  • Power Consumption: 30W (228V * 0.130A)
  • Pre-Amplification circuit includes both driver and power tubes

Thanks in advance for any help

You might have to bump up the gain a touch but it will be fine. The MD responds well to the lyr which is a hybrid/tube amp.
