Yamaha's are definitely good sound for the money. The Pioneer isn't half-bad either...

I can definitely guarantee a pretty decent sound out of the headphone out of the KR-6600 Kenwood if it was working - I have one myself! However, my tube headphone amp beats it handily in terms of Grado synergization with my RS-2's...

This topic would be better posted in the Amplification forum.

Headphone meet is coming up in a month or two in Vancouver... are you coming?

On that CL list there is one working tube receiver for $30... I assume Canadian dollars... What a bargain!
That unit would be my first choice. Most solid-state receivers from the late 70's through mid 80's were a bit bright/edgy or superficialy "warm". Tube units on the other hand rarely fail to make music!
