you're in for a treat !
, congrats, the wa6 is very nice indeed

as for a power cord, for now, a generic cord will do, heavy gauge , will be fine, or there are reasonably priced power cords from pangea

audioquest, ps audio,

Congrats! Sure you will enjoy it.  I'm using an AudioQuest NRG-X3 which I got for just under $100. 6 feet.

jaywillin and MickeyVee, you guys are the best. For now I'll probably go with the AudioQuest because they're readily available thru Best Buy here in Mn.

Hey all, quick question. i am going to buy a mjolnir soon, and purchasing the rs1 to replace my beloved 325si grados. does it matter at all whether i terminate the stock grado cable in dual xlr, or single 4 pin xlr? (mjolnir has both xlr outputs)

Way to go on getting the RS1i's. What made you decide on a balanced solid state, specifically the Schiit, as opposed to a tube amplifier, and what manufacturers of replacement hp cables are you looking at?

Havent been to the forums in a long time but jumped back in with a new set of rs1is. In the past I had a few pairs that I eventually sold.

Im curious, this set I just got the drivers are raised a little bit out of the wooden cups. Is this a new? On all my past grados they sat flush.

also the back of the transducer is red. Its all new to me and a simple goole search doesnt bring the results i seek

Just checked out my RS1i's, which are about 6 months old, and the magnets are black and the driver housings are flush with the cups.

Interesting choice as an amp for Grados.....I usually think of this amp as an amp for Audeze or something power hungry.

I can't wait to hear the reply and see the pic's about the (red) magnets, and if the drivers are possibly different are any different. The poster said he purchased them from Grado, so I assume they are from 4ourears, and maybe Grado paints the magnet (red) to identify they came from 4ourears, just thinking/guessing.

No reply from Grado yet. Here are a few pics. I had asked them the other day when amazon would get more in since i like the 3.99 overnight shipping. They said that the had some issues with parts and more would be on the way soon. Then i called Todd and asked if he would do free overnight and he said he would get grade to dropship me a set. This is the set.
