They were out of the AH D 1001 blacks but shipped silver AH D1001S.
First impression: IMMERSIVE! Clear, clean, detailed, accurate, rich. So far I've used the headphone out jack in the Sony CA9ES CDP and the output from the Harman Kardon PM665 integrated amplifier.
I'm going to take a break and try the phones with the Kenwood KA9100 and Ah Njoe Tjoeb tube output CDP.
Qvusa ships through Damark. They shipped the silver phones for $72.96 (shipping $13.57, phones $59.39) I have some old Panasonic or Technics phones around,I'll do a little A/B tomorrow if I can.
