Using Petite DAC with GS1000
Thought put this here as well. Something different than KSC75 expiriance. I do not hear that warm, full body, velvet kind of sound sig anymore. Just typical GS1000 sig. O.k. here we go.
Using with JAZZ and ACCOUSTIC isnt issue, however I do mis full mids, I would say not enough body in the sound. But detail, clarity and musicality are there. I can compair Petite with Grado RA1 up here, the same sound reproduction level. Everything is there, but not enough body with flat, kind of distaned punch. Rosenberg Trio are great with it. I hear every string movement and the guitars sound real and live, supper.
Diana's Krall Boulevard of Broke Dreams is very good to, oh man, this amp holds up to the top. I here every single thing from the record and the piano, wow, sounds like piano, cristal and clear. Can not say that Diana's voice is velvety smooth up here, but fairy enough do not call it cold or dull.
The next CD Joona Toivanen Trio "FROST" And again, piano, bass, ah just everything sounds so clear and right, amazing. The amount of detail and the reality of the instrument sound is freaking scary. I am done here, sorry...
Using with ROCK is an typical issue, not enough mids to push them to the level, highs are arent controled anymore and the punch way to soft with some distance. I would choose KSC75 over GS1k here, no probs at all.
Will updat this later, cos my laptop is making me sick at the moment.
O.k. here we go again, TRANCE
Tracks: Paul van Dyk FOR AN ANGEL, Marco V SIMULATED, Filterheadz YIMANYA, Ralphie B MASSIVE, Rank 1 AIRWAVE, Human Evolution HUMAN EVOLUTION.
What can I say? I love it a lot, yes, but than again I was missing a mids a bit, just a bit o.k., and the highs could be a bit to extended, not realy painfull, but not such pleasant as they could be, depends on track. The nature of such records are bass heavy one and nothing bloated up here, nothing at all, period. The bass is tight, punchy and never all over the rest of the sound, simply great. Another thing to mention that reproduction of deepness and airness was at the high level. You are there with the music, floating, kind of lost in the space, very nice feeling.
The bottom line is that Petite DAC have a very nice synergy with GRADO GS1000. I didnt use any EQ and only original CD's been played. I can only imagine how good other Grado's would sound with it. There for we need more people who buys Petite, cos he is worthy little monster, imo.
