I got a pair of k601's earlier this week, I justified them by saying they'd complement the dt770's well. And I'll stick to that story.

Probably sell my ad700's now though, the k601's fit a hell of a lot better than those and although the soundstage isn't as large, they seem to have as good positioning, in stereo and dolby.

I'd really, really love a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770's.. but I've got a planned Sandy Bridge upgrade, so it'll have to wait.

first i bought the AKG701's because of the music i listen to being: jazz, chillout, classical, vocals, and some downtempo. i read about the headphones characteristics and figured they would suit my taste since i was looking for an upgrade over my ad700's.

taking into consideration the music i listen to and the headphones i bought i thought the tube sound would compliment and make my listening experience better, and seeing as the Little Dot line was one of the more reasonably priced tube amps (on $250 budget)
i also read some threads at headfi on this combo and was seeing really good responses for the pair which really made my decision and cant be happier, needless to say its sounds awesome with my headphones as well as a preamp to my vintage Dynaco A35's.

are you considering getting this pair or just the amp?

What do you think of your AKG K701's? I recently traded a fellow HeadFi'er for a pair with BlackDragon cables and I'm completely impressed. I like them as much as my Grado GS1000's. They have a different signature, but, the accuracy is amazing to me.

Where am I supposed to post when I acquire new albums? I don't want to clutter this thread.
