I bought the 2000 right before the lockdown off Amazon. When the lockdown happened and my clinic closed down, I had no income so I just returned the 2000 out of caution. I had the copper, and the tonality was a tad too thick. and it was heavy as hell. But I returned it just out of financial caution. I went back to my se100, but some headfier insisted I sell it to him, and he offered me $175 more than i paid for it, so I sold it. I was just about to buy the N6 E02, when the sr-25 came out. I used to own the sr-15, but left it on a bar in Manhattan about 2 years ago, so i was curious. The sr-25 has blown me away, A&K just gets better and better; the tuning is very sophisticated,Actually I do in sometimes, but it depends on the usage scenario and also signature I prefer for the moment. Why do you think people like Crinacle also stand up for using their phone instead of a DAP? But again, I have nothing against DAPs or buying high end gear (otherwise I would not be here in this forum) - I am just claiming that in many cases we do not get what we think we get, that is all.
Can I ask why are you using a SR25 instead of your former SPK2000cu (at least it seems from your signature)?
