I finally have enough money to step-up into the HIFI range. As a starter, I need general direction “where to go” with cans. I have d2k and d600 and I’m very disappointed at their performance. I have somewhat proper equipment: Ipod classic è Fiio e17 or USB è e17. All my audio files are at least 320kbps mp3 or higher quality, but my d2k is not simply meeting up to my expectations. I’m willing to spend 1k ± 100 dollars on my hifi cans.
1) Is one grand enough for so-called hi-fi’s?
2) Do I have proper equipment?
3) I prob not going to audition them. Please describe the sonic qualities as detailed as possible
