which amp will really get my grados to shine.?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

i own the grado 225i and i want a portable amp, because i just want a mobility option as, i tend to use my ipod as a source and move around my house a lot.

 

id like to keep costs down and spend at most $200USD, i dont mind if the amp is used.

 

which sub 200$ amp no dac necessary will really make these things shine, and bring the most out of the them, or which amp is the best bang for my buck.

 

amps i had in mind.

 

RSA tomahawk

Headsix

MINI3

 

feel free to list what amp you have experienced with grados that will make them shine.

Grab a used Minibox-E+, it will synergize very nicely.

ibasso D4 I used to use it with my SR325is, amazing output details and that rock sound you yurn for,what have you got as a DAC.

When I first got my SR225is I said: maybe I'll never like Grados' sound signature., until I got a D4 Mamba : ) Now I'm loving it. I wonder how RSAs or other portables pair with these...

Agreed, my Minibox E+ pairs very well with my SR225 and MS2i.

Agree with the minibox E+ as Grado/Alessandro likes a lot of current to really shine.  Of the three the OP has listed, the Mini3 would be next.

Another vote for the D4 - I have had mine for more than 12 months, its battered and brusied, the DAC gave up long ago, but that little amp just keeps pushing air in a most enjoyable fashion.
