you can find DT770's for around $150 and that gives roughly $100 for the amp.

So he buys them used. Not a big deal.

The primary difference between the two Mini3 versions is the battery life (8 hours for the "high performance" version, 20 hours for the "extended runtime" version).
There is a also a difference in the sound of the two versions, the high performance version has much better bass but the extended runtime version has better treble.

Options are:
Enclosure color (natural aluminum or black)
LED colors
Gain setting.
High performance or Extended runtime version.
Custom manufactured front and rear end panels are also available for an extra $50 but the lead time for those is three weeks.

Photos can be found here---->

Edit: here's the info on the PIMETA's

There is a bright side however.... even though it's a hack job to make them work the replacements sound better.

Price is $200 plus shipping for a desktop version with built in tread and external AC to AC adapter.
There are a whole page of options available for the Pimeta and as such I think it's better that I deal with the buyer directly about those....

Example with the default buffers----->

(that example also has a loop out)

Do me a favor will you?
Tell that one guy that my forum nick is MisterX and not some bastardized version that he was to lazy to type correctly.

~Marshall
His email is x86inside@charter.net. Ask what's cheaper option on the PIMETA's. I couldn't find any one head-fi for ebay used, so look around on places like headwize or ilounge

I know the feeling. I bought mine used, but I made sure to switch the pads immediately. Fortunately, the seller included a new set for free.

You have all been extremely helpful.

Out of curiosity, why is an amp recommended and what exactly does it do? What kind of uses can I get from one?

It's a general consensus that the DT700 is the best choice right?

What about the DT770? I didn't see the DT700 on their site.

I don't know of a DT700. The DT770 (80 ohm version) is what everyone is recommending.
