Denon d7100 + o2 odac, that'd be ideal for me.

Ya, i now have half this mans setup,

 

So

he4- 350

audio gd nfb-10se- lets say 420 with the balanced cable used from this nice gentleman above

Thats 770, you could easily get a mad dog 3.2, and this would be end game(for me)

But i have re-262s-100 bucks and shure 840s-120 bucks. Rather have the MD 3.2s though, those things go very very well with the he4

Two entries for me:

 

Bottlehead Crack w/Speedball

Sennheiser HD650

Fiio E17 DAC

Raspberry Pi as source

 

Schiit Modi / Magni 

Laptop or Raspberry Pi as source

Sony MDR-V6

 

I'm blown away by the Modi/Magni. with the MDR-V6

 

You don't hear much about the MDR-V6 these days because it's kind of yesterdays news but dollar for dollar, pound for pound and for God's sake they have synergy with the Schiit gear.

Audeze LCD 2 or HD650 

 

O2 and Dac

 

The end?

I'd assume it's a computer.

Unless you can get them shipped for free with no tax and find an amp/DAC in a bin this would go significantly over $1000.

I would consider Sennheiser HD600 + Antique Sound Lab MG Head OTL mk 3.

 

I actually have this combo and am happy with how well they get along.

Without any real world experience with the specific pairing, I'd say HD600 + Valhalla + Bifrost.  $1000 + shipping and tax.

 

Its definitely paring I'd be interested in trying at the price range anyways.

It would seem like a good mix but... This thread is for setups you've tried. This is speculation

Seems like an advert

Then my bad.  Most things I've heard are either budget minded, like what I own, or expensive rigs at meets.  So no real experience at the 1K level.

I haven't, although I really enjoy the D600, one of my favorite headphones in its price range. It makes EDM really fun to listen to, and I would assume D7100 is if anything, just a better version.
