What if the DAC is that much better then the icemat though?

True, but for now I can't really say that I need it. this works ok, sounds real good, and now I can put my money towards renovating my basement so I can finally get my home-theater system like it should be, and get my super nice speakers out of storage.

Before you drop $$$ on the D7000's read this and consider their offerings.

ATH-A700, ATH-AD700. One is open-back, the other closed.
Which one would be the best given their prices are the same?
All I want is the best allround quality for around their prices. (I can get both for around $130 new here so anything of another brand which would perform even better would be nice to suggest too.. thanks in advance hehe)

What do you want to use them for? they're pretty similar.

Like I said, allround sound quality. I listen to all kinds of music varying from Eurobeat to classical piano/orchestra to rock, so I don't really think there's one thing I can focus on. Sound crispness is a factor and so is bass quality and relative strength. As long as it doesn't come short on the bass it's fine with me.

Surroundings? My room 9 out of 10 times, in which I have my computers but I can always quiet things down (fans) if the fan rush is anywhere near audible with them on.

i have the a700 and im loving them. the differences would be that the a700 would play lower frequency better but also have a smaller sound stage then the ad700.

You don't like the headphones and this doesn't help, or you don't like the mods he does?
