No website that I'm aware of. You have to contact him through email at:

groverhuffman@hotmail.com

He generally replies back within a day.

DA,

um, the UR1s i had (shipped 6/6) which Grover asked me to send in looked exactly like your UR2s.


I would recommend you ASK GROVER before coming to any conclusion regarding the status of your URs.

it's silver for the conductor, and a silver-copper hybrid for the return.

That does make it more confusing if there are black label UR1's

But at least we know from your post that UR2 version was being sold "sometime" after 6/6/05. Perhaps Grover can post here and give more exact time when UR2 models were first sold/shipped for anyone who wishes to upgrade.

BTW I don't think Mark was able to compare UR1 vs UR2 to determine that he actually prefers UR2 (he did compare to older SR II) so first order of business for me is to compare both URs and see which I like best.

DA,

I recently recieved a trio of the latest version and my bands do not match up with yours. The white/black is NOT an accurate way to decipher between the older and new URs. I've emailed grover asking if there is an accurate way--we'll see what he says.

Talked to Grover today and the bands do not signal versions.

Thanks to Markl for this nice review.

Great review Mark. Thanks. Grover is a class act to deal with and his interconnects are stellar. Right now I only have the interconnects connecting my vinyl setup to my amp, but I plan on outfitting my whole systems with his interconnects.

Here's a related question regarding placement of Grover's ICs:

I just ordered one pair of Grover ICs and they will be arriving later this week. I also just purchased a GS-1 headphone amp as well. Where should I place the Grovers? Between the cd player and the amp OR between the amp and the headphone amp?

Here is my cuurent/future setup: Onix XCD-88 CD Player with Mod level 1 -> Jolida 1501RC (hybrid integrated amp) -> Headamp GS-1 -> 650s with Zu mobius

The current IC between the cd player and amp is the Twisted Pair II by Element cable (Solid bare copper terminated with the Bullet Plug)

It seems like the best place is to connect them between the Jolida and the and Jolida so that the Grovers will hit my speakers (Paradigm Studio 60s v3) and headphone amp - but maybe not.

Thoughts anyone? And lets assume right now that I will not be purchasing any more Grovers in the near future

Mr Monkey
Sounds like you are using the tape outputs of Jolida Integrated amp to your headphone amp........I would put best pair of ICs (Grovers ) between CDP and integrated to preserve quality of source signal, once signal is degraded can never be improved downstream..........solution get two pair of Grover UR2 if you like them.

I am still on hold with my UR2 impressions since system still in the middle of upgrade cycle with gear.........will report in near future.

DarkAngel,

Thanks for your comments. That makes perfect sense. Of course, I knew someone would just suggest that I buy another pair of Grovers to cover all links in the setup.

To tell you the truth, I'm trying to make a faithful effort to stop the upgrading maddness! Can't all my current parts just get along!

I agree with DA, should be attached to your source. It's too bad you don't have a direct connection from CD player to headphone amp.
