Portable Amp for Grados 325i

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I recently bought a used pair of Grados 325i (not the new 325is version) on Head-Fi from Zombie_X (great to deal with by the way) and looking to buy a portable amp. Zombie-X re-cabled them with Nucleotide wire. Currently using a 5th Gen I-Pod using Apple Lossless codec. Not sure if I want an Amp/DAC combo but am considering it.

Looking to spend no more than $500. Any suggestions?

Go with the HeadAmp Pico.

I would say SR325 is excellent with the P-51 Mustang. If you like the thrill and shine of the SR325 then the dry sound from the P-51 makes this even better. I am sure a PICO is great too.

If you want a cheaper bargain the D10 is a great match. You can change the OPamps in the D10 and elsewhere on this forum you can find the best match for SR325.

Thread should be in the portable section...

Yes it should be in the portable section. However the P51 or the SR71 (original) will be a nice combo w/ the Grado.

I love the d10 with my Grado 325is' - great price and incredibly versatile - when not using as a portable solution I use it as a dac with my Little Dot mkIII and my k701s shine!

Anything by Ray Samuels Audio is sure to please.

The Millett Portable Hybrid amp is considered a synergistic match with all Grados according to several sources and members I have asked. You should check it out.

I'm so pleased with the amp (driving my K701s) that I just bought another one. They are now selling at TTVJ for $379 - $80 less than what I paid for my first one.

My 325i sounds good with AE2 and Portaphile maxed out version for portable amps.

Pico sounds best with Grados
Also it is a great Dac, you wont find better one for you Grados

I'm thinking about getting the iBasso D6 to use with my Grado 325's and my Cowon J3/Alienware laptop.  I'm still on the fence as far as a portable headphone amp goes.
