Not one MKII. 2. =D

I haven't even gotten the first one yet D:

Depends on a lot of things, mostly money. It'll be a while though, balanced amps are expensive. Very expensive.

After reading S1rrah's little article I decided to go off and buy some hospital grade power cords. I was looking through google and I found some power cords for FREE at americords! I thought I hit the jackpot and I ordered like 50 12ft 16 gauge hospital grade cords. To my demise, they called me today and said it was an error in pricing....

Well, from the sounds of it, I love my Denon IEM, so if I can find some new D2000's for the price I was going to buy the DT's for [180$ for the Dt's, i'd spend up to 225$ for the D2000's] I'm picking them up after my surgery. :O!

GOD all my saved money, spent. well, all but 500$ gih :[.
when the MKII's come in, LMK =D!

Hmm... well...


My MKII came today, very much to my surprise. I wasn't even aware it had been shipped D:

Opening it up now, pics and impressions later.

Extreme initial impressions (have maybe half an hour on it...)

More bass, but more bloat. Treble is sparkly and pleasant. Whole sound is very warm, almost too much. Doesn't seem to have much more life or energy, hopefully this will improve during burn in. Soundstage is maybe a tiny bit wider... hard to tell at this point.

According to Penchum's review on Head-Fi, burn in has a pretty big effect, especially around the 50 hour mark, so time will tell.

It's a bit much, the bass is more bloated. But, I've only got an hour on it, so it'll most likely settle down. I want punchy and deep, not boomy.

Are you using the no name tubes it comes with or did you switch out the tubes?

The tubes make everything sound 3-D like and very warm. Anyhow, if I were to buy a large amount of hospital grade power cords would anybody like to purchase some off me?
