    The alarming amount of newbies who's only requirment is bass.

    Quote: And just to proof my point - going through a few first pages on high-end forum I found no questions about bass whatsoever.

    The alarming amount of newbies who's only requirment is bass.

    First of all, I think you are mixing both young people and new audiophiles in the same bag and call them newbies. I am 40 and yet I am a newbie in audiophile world. I have no interest in pop or rock now. However, when I was 20, I couldn't care less about jazz and classical music and all I wanted...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    And here is another interesting observation that came to my mind today which I wanted to bring to attention of those who may be interested in K70x. When I listen to an acoustic jazz band, piano concerto, or symphonic orchestra (exclusively via Pure Direct by the way, no bass boost), the bass...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Quote: Gotcha! Will do. Ironically, looks like I missed THE meet (sounds a bit strange, still need to get used to this term) in my city just by a couple of days (June 19th).  Will be watching for the next one.

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Quote: Interestingly, my Yamaha E810 (microsystem) was released approximately the same year as A-S2000 (around 2007) and also conveys that retro-look with silver plates, separate components, plain simple design, and black Yamaha grand piano finish on speakers. This is why it cought my eye...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    I really like that idea regarding vintage receiver. I do have nostalgia for vintage look and would definitely try going this route if the sound is as good as you describe (and no damage is done to the phones by older specs). I will definitely explore this alternative in the near future...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Thanks everyone for your feedback. With your help, I feel I am on the right track right now. I really don't want to turn this thread into another amplifier war debate. Your reassuting advice to listen to my system first and then decide where I want to go is what I wanted to hear. I know for sure...

    K701 amp?, or is my full stereo receiver enough to power them properly

    ^ Thanks for clarification. And great advice to OP. I also like your signature very much (wish I could come up with it first)   Cheers

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Quote: Just googled SPL Phonitor and I would definitely not consider it as a 'start" for my budget. I am sure neither Bill Gates, although for a totally opposite reason. It looks more like a 'finish' to me. But are you trying to say that $160 Corda headfive may sound as good?

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Quote: Ha-ha, that is true. I try to keep my hands on the volume knob though. So far, so good.   Jokes aside, I have grown to be rather pragmatic in my purchsing decisions and always try to enjoy what I have first. Spending $500 on an amp is not going to make any dent in my budget but...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Quote: Yes, I know these kind of forums could become quite addictive. Luckily, my family and my wallet will always sound louder than any amplifier to my ears .

    K701 amp?, or is my full stereo receiver enough to power them properly

    Hi Reedo,   Looks like we are in the same boat - having big doubts about the ability of our hi-fi systems to drive K70x. As you may have already seen in my post I think we should relax a bit and give our components a chance to demonstrate what they can do.  I've read that most hi-fi...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Quote: That's what I thought either. Definitely a tube amplifier is at the top of my list which I will update based on your recommendations. Many thanks.   And it's nice to hear confirmation that there is no much difference between a good receiver and SS phone amplifier. I think many...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Quote: Yeah, I wish I had a place to go and try K702 with dedicated amplifier to hear the difference. So far, I envision two possible scenarios: 1) The notion of a dedicated amplifier is totally overrated, particularly for low-ohms phones like K70x. It might be mostly coming from people...

    AKG K702 - how to get the best out of them

    Well, I realize that replying to my own post looks rather pathetic but I'm guessing there are not that many K702 users in this community. I noticed there was another similar question regarding using stereo amplifier with K702 without any response either.   Anyways, I know that people who are...

    7 drum hits -> What do you hear?

    AKG K702 plugged directly into iMac - definitely second; the first and the last kicks are much farther apart from the rest. I suggest listening several times as at fists I also though it's closer to the first graph...
