I've been running the LSR 305 > Anedio D2 for a few weeks, and plan to order the LSR310S as soon as the end-of-year deals start rolling out. Although slightly smaller dimensions (and price) would have been preferred, simplicity of set up and sound integration became the deciding factor. Can't wait!
11. The number of banned Head-Fi members is pretty astounding.
  Although the mids and upper bass are turned down via equalization, I love my IE800 especially for classical. I'm still thinking the best upgrade next year for my Grado based system would be the source (DAC). Haven't had time to look into the Hugo TT yet, but my short list of preowned DAC's would include the Metrum Hex and Ressonesence Invicta. The Master 7 could be a less expensive possibility. 
   In terms of brightness, before my HF hearing was degraded, I'd guess I would have felt the same way. Don't you think your sound preference would be better served by the RS1 or RS1e? 
  Agree. A longer cable would allow one to stand at the desk to check adjacent file cabinets etc, without extreme caution. 
  Agree about the cable--its kind of idiotic how much weight they put on what are basically lightweight HP's.  Earpads I can deal with as I mostly listen for short periods at high-ish volumes.  What I like about the Grado RS-1/RS-2 is the balance of their tonality, and how they present the upper-mids and highs. 
  The mid-range with the RS-2i out of the GS-1 sounds pretty sweet overall. It seems sometimes the upper-mids will shoutdown the rest, but that's just splitting hairs. The IE800 is still my #1, but the RS-2i w/ GS-1+ has some stuff it does nicer. Of course I'm still in the learning phase with this set up.
   Thanks. I'd still like a bit more richness (euphonia) in the midrange. I'm only guessing but that is what I hope the RS-1 will bring to the table. Imho the RS-1/RS-2 do not work well with mediocre recording. Perhaps later I should possibly look into a (NOS) DAC upgrade.  I came back to Head-Fi for the sole purpose of looking for a new set of IEM only , and now I have a:- Senn IE800- Anedio D2- Headamp GS-1 amp w/ DACT/dynalo+- Grado RS-2i    Seriously considering:-...
