    looking for headphone to complement my beyers (dt770 80ohm)

    I like my K 701s for classical listening -- especially for the type that you describe.

    Replacing anything on this bike would be like trying to upgrade a Cimarron. I think the brake calipers might be Weinemanns which would be one of the few decent parts.

    How long is your journey now with K701?

    2 years -- very happy.

    Koss Pro-4aat revisited

    I had both 4aa and 4aaa in the 80's. I remember the 4aaa's to be even more uncomfortable, as well as having a very disappointing sound compared to the rockin' 4aa's. I gave the 4aa's to a friend because I knew that I would go deaf if I kept them -- you could really crank them...turn the bass up...

    Which current full size reference cans have the most accurate tonality with acoustic instruments?

    The viola on Berlioz' Harold in Italy (Living Stereo SACD) is very convincing on my K701's.

    K701... are they really THAT amazing?

    I think that you should keep the K701's. I find them very engaging, and they seem to get better over time (real or imagined). You have some fine headphones -- get an amp and then all you have to concern yourself with is enjoying the music!

    Thorens TD160 Super Heirloom Restoration

    The DJ(s) at Studio 54 in NYC used Thorens TT's in 1982. They sounded great. Maybe the best system I ever heard. Rock solid, clear bass -- Rock the Casbah!

    Hey Vinyl spinners what cart are you using right now?

    OM-20 -- not good enough. I wish that I would have bit the bullet and purchased a better tt.

    So that is why Vinyl was invented....finally understood the hype.

    I have been dazzled by the brilliant sound of my digital players, but I have to say that I haven't heard much richness of the sonic palette in them. We are lucky to live in today's audio world, though. I like listening to my iPod, CD player, and turntable. They all have their limitations. If...

    I can't understand how an analog recording would sound better on a CD, or vice-versa. It seems as if you would be getting all of the flaws of both formats in one.
