Did have digital coax out, which I'm not sure if the E-Mu does or not, I'll have to look into it.

Anyway, if anyone has a major college near them that does the rummage sale type thing, I'd definitely look into them. Not only can you get good quality furniture for cheap (I got a nice wooden rack to hold my amp/DAC/speaker amp for $2), but every once in a while you'll find a gem. =D
why even post that?!?!

To remind people of the importance of rummage sales, as well as the shock of seeing such high-level equipment for $20. Sometimes people don't know what they're getting rid of.

I've read of people scoring $1000 turntables and receivers and such for ridiculously low prices at garage sales and the like.

but you didn't buy me one...

thus, I reiterate why put me through the suffering of knowing that I knew someone who passed up a deal like that... hell you could have at least borrowed $20 to get yourself one...

lol, I'm going back tuesday for more cheap-as-hell furniture, I'll pick one up if it's still there. =D Does the 0404 have coaxial in? this thing on the front under S/PDIF looks the same, but I really know jack about digital interfaces.

True, true... would be a killer source to keep around...


Yeah, I'll probably pick it up when I go back. Hopefully one's still there...

Even if you don't want it, buy one and send it to me (And I'm actually seriously considering that if you can still get them - I'd reimburse you for it, plus some extra, plus shipping). My soon-to-be power amp accepts balanced inputs.

Depending on how much spare cash I have, I'll get as many as I can, and send them off to whoever wants them.

On an unrelated note, triggerc, any chance you could give me a brief rundown on the D2000 vs HD600? I'm looking for a change from my beyers, and these two are my top choices at the moment.

I gotta start by saying that I'm a little biased for the HD600.

The main draw for me with the D2000 is that it doesn't leak as much as open phones, and still has a great soundstage, but you sacrifice isolation for the soundstage. The sound with the D2000 is thick and syrupy, good detail all through-out the spectrum. HD600 has the edge in air and soundstage, due to the open design. It also has amazing detail in the highs and mids, it has the most clarity of the bunch I have. The highs are incredibly smooth, no fatigue at all for me. Even though the HD600's bass isn't as prominent, it is still present.

The D2000 has the edge in bass impact, the two seem to be equally controlled in the bass for me. The D2000's heavier bass starts to cause fatigue for me after a while, maybe 3 hours of listening or so, but it might be just right for you being accustomed to the DT770. Don't expect the same quantity of bass out of either the D2000 or the HD600 as the DT770 though.

Comfort-wise, it kinda depends on the size of your head. If you have a smaller head, the D2000 will be very loose, and that might degrade the sound due to fitment issues. If you have a bigger head, the HD600 will probably clamp a little too tightly. I find the HD600 always exerting a little force on my jaw. For an average sized head, the D2000 will be more intimate and comfortable for shorter listens, but the D2000 is heavier than the HD600, a lot heavier, you start feeling the weight after a while.

Neither headphones are particularly sensitive, the D2000 is a little more sensitive than the HD600, but amp selection shouldn't be too big a problem.

Let me know if you want to know anything more specific!

Trigg quick question out of the 3 headphones you have which do you enjoy the most.

Oh and also my MS-2 went faulty. Well the left driver started rattling and crackling on any bass notes first i thought it was just hair but it wasnt . Had to send it back to Headphonic yesterday.

Kinda disappointing as i really liked the MS-2 sound.
