RE: K1000 was a nice deck by all acounts

Don't feel bad about not doing the DBX thingy. Way back, I had a DBX 155 which I occasionally used with my Revox A77. Absolutely dead quiet audio. But, as, you said, it didn't respond well to certain kinds of sounds, and then would "pump". Had to get rid of it.

Also, Dolby C changed the tonal character of sounds too much, so even though my H-K cassette deck has it, I don't use it.

I don't currently know anything about HX Pro. Doesn't matter - cassette is, well, cassette: four tiny tracks on tape going at 1-7/8 ips. Cassette, to me at least, is totally a convenience format, not a hifi format.
