Well, actually it's all back to our own taste, but most of the time people who try my Burson(s) usually said that this amp is more to dark rather than bright. YMMV of course, no one is wrong :)

 

Graham Slee is more mellowed than burson, so for vocal stuff perhaps it will be a better choice.

 

note: In my local community seems like many people also like to pairing T1 with Burson or GS Solo :)

Are there any marked differences between the earlier T1's and later T1's sonically? I know that the leather on headband is a little different, imo...

 

I got a replacement pair for my T1's in the mail from the Sound Surgeon and the serial number is in the 5900's, whereas the one in sent was somewhere in the 7400's.

Just got my T1s back from Robert (Zeus).  Quad 22 OCC Copper  - Sounds great on the βeta-22

Can you elaborate on the B22 synergy? I've shied away from the T1 from a reluctance to invest in another amp. If the Beta is good enough, I'd certainly reconsider.
post #3170 of 10478

I think it's a combination of a few things.  The Beta is already a amp that adds a little color.  Along with a good copper cable the T1s now have more bass, treble is not as harsh if they ever was to you.  This combo really tames the T1 in a really good way for me.  

 

I see you have a 3 channel.  I have a 4 channel and I'm not sure if there is a difference or not in the sound sig.

 

The T1s are a good match with this amp.

Thanks for the impressions. I'll see if I can snag a T1, but with the 007 mk1 blowing my mind I have too much stuff as it is. The RS1i and AHD-7000 have to go, before cobwebs find their way into the drivers. Incidentally do you have find they excel with any particular genre?

I'll take those RS1is off oyur hands.  With the buttons right?  I think the grados will go good with my balanced M^3.

Im getting the Violectric V200 for the T1, do you think the Bifrost would be a good DAC for it or should I get another one?

post #3174 of 10478

I've heard pretty go things about the Bifrost.  Can you swing the V800?

nah, v800 is way too expensive.

 

I had two additional question to the T1 owners in this thread.

1) Is there a one box solution (Amp+DAC) which pairs well with the T1 for around 1000 like the Burson AH-160D, the burson is said to be a bad match for the T1.

2) I don't expect most people to know this, but this website (http://www.dr.loudness-war.info/index.php?search_artist=metallica&search_album=) rates the quality of the recording in each album, so it says which album is recorded well and which one is not. Do you think an album with a scale of around 12/11/13 or something like that would be recorded well enough for the T1, or will the T1 reveal many mistakes to the point where it's not even worth getting it (I will be listening to mostly rock and metal)?

I wouldn't take that too seriously. My favorite black metal albums have crap recording quality, yet I enjoy the hell out of them through my T1.

Agreed even raw black metal badly recorded is not unberable you will hear the many flaws of recording but still yet enjoyable

For Bad match T1+HA160D it could be preference taste , A-GD NBF-10.32 or NFB-5.32 could be a choice , for dr.loudness-war i know it , for metal most of record suffer from loudness war , but many are still enjoyable .

Two of the T1 I have have a grey outer rim surrounding the metal mesh while the third pair has a black rim. Does anyone know anything about this? Also, it is of interest to me how they managed to screw up the headband again when they could have done a far better job.

Let me know if you're serious about selling some headphones. I'm always willing to buy or trade.
