Yes, I listen to parts of it or all of it every day.

There is just a simple nice aspect to it combined with it being brutal as H E Double Toothpicks.

Really looking forward to this album! Good thing they dropped most of the boring Djent parts from their last album.

 


That was a pretty awesome concert yesterday!
They even played Prisoner. First time in a couple of years afaik.


Metallicas setlist for tomorrow looks super generic (maybe because they did let the fans decide what they should play :P)

I have given the new behemoth a listen.Its pretty sweet.that was due to the frenzy from you guys.ma also rates it high

post #14725 of 25908

Just got a great deal on a Grado RS1i from a heafdier bud. I know there's a lot of love hate for Grados-but for a pretty modest investment, coming from the 225i-I'm hearing refinement in a variety of genres not the least of which is metal. The 225 is great for metal and even more aggressive, but is sibilant on some recordings-Lord Mantis Death Mask was tough going. I'm thinking the RS1i will be much easier on my old ears for BM in partic.

 

The RS1 definitely puts you on stage w/ the band, but I think is just a little more laid back and smooth while still producing a gorgeous guitar tone. Particularly on decent metal recordings. listening to Triptykon now-this is the best I've hard including my stereo-CDP-Rotel RA-12 integrated amp w/ a decent DAC-Asgard-2-RS1i. I think I'll get a tube hybrid for my endgame metal/rock set up....uh, well, ahem, until I wait and possible fork over 1K on one of those suite new and improved LCD-2s. But that's a long daydream away. RS1  not so good for symphonic, electronic, hip hop where you would either want a bigger soundstage (the RS1 has an improved soundstage tho from lower end grados) or the kind of base that's more optimal with aforementioned styles and pop. But, I'm a metal guy-I've never liked much pop.

I like the SR325is more for metal compared to the RS1i. The RS1i is a bit more mellow, while the 325is has a bit more energy. If you like the treble energy in the Grado's you will love Hifiman orthos.

I think that's right about the energy. I guess the thing for me, to handle multiple genres the RS1i is going to be more user friendly. Also for more nuanced metal-think all the jazzy proggy and post metal styles.

 

I've only listened to the 325 at meets and if felt a bit more detailed but a also a bit brighter at least compared to my 225 with a tape mod and a little light in base which I think is actually a significant limitation...when I think of all the base heavy doom I like. the base on the RS1i while still understated just feels a little tighter. I also feel my 225's are somewhat fatiguing. Great to give you that experience being on stage with the band . But, personally, while I love aggressive and for short bursts it really hits the X spot-I don't always want to be onstage with the band. And, for people like me who want to throw other genres at the can-the SR1i just is more well rounded.

 

That said,  if I just wanted to hear 20 minutes of DM, whatevercore or classic thrash-the lower end Grados are a great value point. If nothing else, my experience this weekend w/ the RS1i has convinced me that I would not be inclined to pay retail ($700) when I get so much of the sound from my $200 225i. But used (under $500)-I think it's solid and it's smoother presentation covers more ground for me.

 

The HE500 is def on my short list for a more technical can.

I don't have a desktop rig right now, but if I would ever get one, it would be a HE500 and some kind of tube amp.
I tried that combo a few months ago at a local convention and it blew me away! Superb Metal cans, if you ask me.

One of the guys that posts here sometimes listens to a lot of metal. I've heard his HE500 set up w/ a laptop at a meet-sounded with great. He had a DIY tube amp that was sweet. I've got other speaker system priorities that will put that kind of purchase down the line for me.

 

Crap, I've got everything to point that any new toy kicks into the $500-1.5K + range....guess I'm at a point that to improve I have to play w/ the big boys...

 

I've also heard the LCD-2 has been reworked some and is killer. And, while I'm fantasizing, as I get older and gravitate to more and more "non metal" I'd also like to have something that I can use for symphonic stuff-or anything where you'd want a bigger soundstage and the kind of presentation esp base that would translate into EDM/ambient music.

 

Cheers
