Nice, so the 2 chassis one is better ?

I can not comment on that, as i have never heard that amp....I am using the Mad Ear +HD, just one unit.

according to the good dr, the two sound about the same, the super II just more powerful

Even though the output impedance on the super 2 is lower, I would have thought it would suit the Grado PS1000 better

that's possible, the ps1000 does seem to like a little more power

i drove the ps1000 with an ear + , it sounded good, but maybe the super 2 would be better

On my Leben, I find the PS100 needs more volume than the hd800.

@joseph69 is a good person to ask about the ps1000 and amping it, you can find him usually on the grado thread

Cool mate, will check with him

Either amp can drive the PS1000 fine.

One significant difference is that the Super 2 uses EL84 output tubes instead of the 12B4A.

Many appreciate the wider variety of tubes available for the Super 2.

I had one...it rocked!
