I’m not sure Yellow Birch should be in with this group but what other North American tone-wood is up there with Maple, Walnut and Black Cherry?

 

I’m going to make them all the same size finished with Bees wax, no differences that could affect sound.

 

If this works out and reviewers pass them on without problem I’ll do the same thing with exotic Tone-woods.

 

I'd love to participate!

Great! Have you written ant reviews before?

 

I want to send them to anyone who has been a member for one year or more and have more than 300 posts .

 

I would like the first few participants to have some experience in reviewing sound gear of some sort. Someone that can go deep into the tonal aspects of each tone-wood. After that it would be open to anyone.

I'd definitely be able to do that.

Nice review!  I like how it was organized as it was much easier to go through the review and capture the main points - as opposed to reading larger paragraphs.      

:L3000:

 

 

7Keys, I'm looking forward to your plan for reviewing the various woods for the cups and their traits.  It should really benefit this forum, and those who desire to proceed with a Grado upgrade, or a Magnum build.  :L3000:

Wow, thanks, Wje, means a lot!
post #3967 of 5186

A little help please?

In these 3: Xylia xylocarpa, Oaks, Afzelia xylocarpa, which one should I use?

Nice review.

Do you have a set of drivers to use?

They are going to have a slit in the side for the cable for easy driver switching.

 

I think you can pop a Koss ksc75 into these cups also, although  I haven't done it myself.

 

This is a tone-wood review so it shouldn't matter what driver you use.

I can't wait to try them all out myself. I'm hoping all those who would like to hear the differences between the tone-woods will get a chance to test them.

 

Participants would only have to have a set of drivers and be willing to pay the $10 postage to pass them on to to the next guy line. I'm thinking they should keep them no longer than one week.

 

The cups should be ready to go by the end of this week.

I hate to go off topic for a bit in this thread.  I saw that you're seeking a Schiit Gunjir (sp?).  There's also a Schiit Bifrost with the Uber upgrade ($100 value) for only $300 in the forum here.  Apparently, the Uber upgrade takes the Bifrost into the Gunjir territory.  I'm not sure if you've investigated this angle yet.

I'm sure these have been posted before. These are my first Grado/Alessandro purchase. Bought from another head-fier.

I believe the wood chambers and grill were done by Martin Custom Audio.

 

Do the chamber materials/size actually make a difference to the sound?

Anyhelp please? Also, should I pick L cush for sr80i or G cush?

Go for the L cush. The G cush will change the sound too much.

Probably L Cush. G Cush gives more space but at small loss in detail and bass. L Cush is a happy medium.
