I'm considering if I should get the upgrade while it's still available, it's tempting...

Received it already?
The improvement over the headphone out will baffle you haha. However with the headphone out straight into the GS-1 you're not even close to hearing what it can do.

Enjoying the GS-1 immensely. Build quality is excellent, and it seems to have an uncolored, well-resolving sound. Will probably pick up the upgraded modules sooner than later.

YES YOU SHOULD IMO!

You make a solid argument tongue.gif

The hesitation is twofold;

On one side i do want to get it since the GS-1 feels like the end-game SS amp for me and 200 bucks isn't that much. On the other hand, will it really make an improvement since it was designed purely to beef up the amp for ortho's.

 

That brings me a point that may or may not sway the decision; My new cans will be either the HE-500 or the T1 but i'm not sure when that will be since my new dac, the Ocatve MK1,  lifted a veil that bugged me in the dacmagic and basicly lifted my setup to a new level.

 

Some question make the question about the meaning of life pale in comparison......

I found a good improvement (more solid overall presentation) with both my TH-900s and HD-800s (although I have a GS-X, I would definitely still upgrade to the new Dynalo+ modules).

Hmmmmm food for thought...

 

btw; Did you get a change to try the HD-800 before you sold the GS-1? I'm wondering how it pairs

I was just heading off to bed and noticed your question....the GS-1 and HD-800s is a fantastic combination!

I've read that, and added to the glory somewhere near the last pages smily_headphones1.gif
Seem to have missed that testament. maybe because I didn't expected or because my crying wallet didn't allow me to see it tongue.gif.
Everyone weeks to yell the hd800 is picky and I only hear about good matches with expensive amps

MH; How does the gs-1 compare to the gs-x? Is it a gs-1 on steroids or an entirely different animal? Because honestly I'm not sure how the GS-1 can be beaten in what it's famous for.

The GS-X uses the same circuit, just twice as many channels and a better psu.

Hi Justin,

I bought a brand new GS-1 from you a few years ago, and I never received an email about the new modules at all.

I sent u emails and a letter about my interest in the new modules, but you haven't responded yet.

If they are still available, I am very interested in obtaining them.

Just tell me how much they cost, and how I go about obtaining them.

Thanks,

Lanny

hi,

 

I sent you a reply on 4/20 11:50pm.  did you receive that?

 

but the reason you did not get an initial email about the new modules is because you changed your email address sometime in the past 6 years

Sonically they share a lot in common. Simply "wire with gain" and very transparent. But the GS-X is a bit "more transparent" and "holographic" in its imaging. I also find the added power very welcomed with my LCD-3s. They have more dynamics and punch with the GS-X...better still with the new Dynalo+ modules too!

You really have to bring the modules up again, didn't you tongue.gif

So he really outdone his himself on the GS-X, i'd love to hear one some day. Same goes for his electrostat amps...

 

Justin, how long do you think you are offering the new modules, someone is gpulling me over to get them but i'm not sure if finances allow it the next few weeks. Too many fun hobbies these days rolleyes.gif
