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.

OK, so, the Ah! Njoe Tjoeb does not appear to have a volume control - the volume control in the Kenwood KA9100 does not seem to effect the the headphone output from the Ah! So, it was too loud.

The KA9100 has an output jack. I listened to little bit of a Roy Orbison CD. Sounded OK, but not as good as the output from the Sony CA9ES or the Harman Kardon PM665 amp.

I like the phones!

Very nice 2x6. How do you find the comfort? A budget($138), hybrid tube amplifier designed to power a low impedance headphone like those Denon beauties, I bet you would like. smile

Very nice pick doc! Here's its more recent iteration.

I have a tube amp (Antique Sound Labs) but it needs some attention (new input block rca jacks) before I can use it again. Wish the folks at Antique Sound Labs would support their great sounding products.

I think the new Denon headphones are comfortable but I haven't had them on long enough to report.

You would LOVE the MKIII 2x6. I have several hundred hours of use with it over the past year.
