I absolutely loved the Woo amps.

I almost bought the Woo 6 but held off as I'm thinking of the 1000+ dollar arena for my next amp ... but at 550 bucks ... I can't think of a better tube amp entry point than that Woo 6. Insanely good, rich tone ... the bass was a couple orders of magnitude better than my Stello HP100.

For the future ... I'm more interested in the more expensive Woo 6SE which I liked more than the Woo 6 and which "Orcin" the main organizer of the Houston meet, decided to purchase.

Fantastic sounding stuff for sure.

I doubt its your source, if your Denon AVR is sounding harsh and brittle too, it just might be what your taste.

My “tastes†are based off of award winning reference RTA’d stereos, whether they be in a car, basement, or studio the RTA doesn’t lie. Honestly I am beginning to wonder how many people out there claiming to be audiophiles actually know what a natural flat line sounds like? This is the main reason I did as much research as I possibly could on these and other headphones so this wouldn’t happen. And to think I was just about to drop another $300 on some gear to try and help these cans out.

On the D2000’s mids, they are not bright or overbearing as much as kind of pushed into the foreground and not as prevalent as the highs are. The highs on the other hand are very bright, detailed but overly bright. As far as how I like my bass, it has to be able to keep up with the rest of the sound firstly lol, but I like it very tight and snappy, and like I said before though If the music being played requires the drivers to get loose then that’s what they need to do, not distort and flap all over the place. Put it this way, when the stereo is up, guitars are screaming, and the drummer hits the bass drum, I want to feel that impact in my chest like you would standing right next to the drum.


I really don't mean to come off "gruff" but I was expecting a lot more of these and am just really frustrated.

You want bass that only a sub can deliver. These are headphones, not subwoofers. In the world of headphones, a natural line and ridiculous bass are two terms that rarely coincide. The closest you will get from any pairing that I currently know of will cost you a lot of money (more than a few grand).

Wait for the LD 1+ to show up and see how it impacts the D2000. Burn-in will also help somewhat I suspect.

You can't expect a pair of headphones to sound like speakers. It's a completely different presentation, and while most of the time the soundstage is the most changed, other parts of the sound can change too.

If you want car audio sound, you should stay with car audio, you're just not going to get that from headphones. Don't tell knowledgeable and intelligent people they don't know what they're talking about just because you didn't find what you were looking for with a $200 pair of headphones.

the more I think about it the more I think I want a pair of Onix Reference 1.8's they can be seen in the bottom pic, to the left.
http://www.av123forum.com/showpost.p...47&postcount=8
take my Reference 1 Le then turn them into a tower and add a supertweeter... sounds good to me! They're hard to find and when av123 sold them they were $2k. You can get them outside the US now (Onix is an English company)
The other option would be to keep my Reference 1's and add an ERT, but they are discontinued as well and typically go for >$200 hmm...

@The Prelude owners...

Does the card have a coax out or do you have to use the 3.5 mini like on the Creative X-fi for the digital out?
