I haven't.  I'd be very curious to hear them though.  I have a feeling they are quite the value.  Hopefully I will hear them at the next meet!

I fervently hope not. For every Beatles, there were quite a few groups/musicians that did not "make it". I prefer thinking that these are one-offs and we revert to quality music evolving in the "right" direction. Well, at least, I'm allowed to dream.

I really liked their biggest speakers, which has me rather optimistic.

David: Considering the value you gave the AD900, I know there are a few of us wanting to get your feedback on whether or not that high praise was carried on in the AD900X, AD1000X, and AD2000X models. I'm sure they aren't a priority for you, but just know there is that interest.

I asked if he would too. IIRC he said that it isn't his top priority right now, just as you said that it might have been. smile.gif

 

I would really love to see some impressions though.

I wish I could include them.  I really think if the AD2000X sounds as good as I imagine it would, it would be my highest ranking AT headphone.  But I will have to see if in the future I could include it.  I am doubtful.  I admire someone like lJokeri for being able to persevere with his wonderful comparisons for years....well into hundreds of models compared.  For me, I anticipate that I will ultimately be ending the comparison this year or next.  It will be sad for me when 10 years from now, most of the models included here will be old news, hopefully surpassed 10 times over.  But it will be fun to see where headphone technology ends up!

It's a valuable service for someone to offer in that it gives those of us without direct access sort of baseline for comparison. Hopefully someone else will pick up the torch you carry so well.

David, what would you recommend that would compliment my 2 headphones(HD650 and DT880)? I was thinking the D7000, any others?

Hmm, it depends what you are looking for.  If you're looking for a closed alternative, the D7000 is a great choice and it does have a different (less neutral signature).  If you don't mind it being an open choice, I say try the HE-400.  It is colored, but its a different sound and it may be exciting to venture into the orthodynamic category.

In Mr T voice: "I pity the fool..." hahah, no really, thank you:)

If someone else picked up the torch all continuity would be lost as everyone hears differently. It would be better if we could lend David headphones in the future, if he would be willing. This is assuming that David is only hampered by financial and not time/burnout issues. And this epic thread would remain unchallenged for perpetuity!
