Good a new thread - I suddenly don't feel as guilty about derailing the meet thread
I didn't want it to turn into a GS-1000 discussion.
Your point was well taken 909 and using the GS-1000 was a good example. My original point was that the GS-1000 is still loved by certain people. I know Jude finds it as his favorite along with his HD650 still. His views haven't changed from the original meet. I just wanted to point out that it just because there are a lot of people that prefer the RS-1 and some that flat out hate the GS-1000, there are many experienced members who have compared it to the R10, etc. All the reviews have been stunning. So, it's not official that the GS-1000 was a flop.
I find the same faults as others. I like a thicker midrange. The bass is absolutely controlled on my Melos SHA-1. The highs are my biggest issue. While extended and wonderful on good recordings, they are harsh on other recordings because of the narrow spike. Hence, the love-hate with the GS-1000. But certainly not dissapointment and a let down by Mr. John Grado
So what the heck else are we supposed to talk about on this thread now
