    Denon-What happened?

    Anyone still rocking the AHD 1000's?  IMO the best "Budget can they ever made.  I guess with the new line up they are trying to snag the " Beats" Crowd?   AHD 1000's with AHD 2000 Cable shortened down to 4 ft!!

    Headphones sensitivity, impedance, required V/I/P, amplifier gain

    What' a far price for the Denon AH-D2000?

    Since they've been discontinued, what's a fair price for the Denon AH-D2000 in the current market?  What are some reasonable price ranges for new and for used?   Going headphone hunting on Friday and there's a shop nearby that might have them new for $350 USD.  Thanks.
