I just ordered a new pair of Grado 325is and the uDac-2 amp to play on my iPod and computer. I play mostly FLAC/Apple lossless. What can I expect from the headphone/amp combo? And what is the difference between the 325is and the 325i? Does anyone like one more than the other?

I've been pairing my SR80's with a udac2 for quite a while and it's a great synergy. It's just a teensy bit warm, which benefits the grados immensely.
As for the sr325's, I've never heard them, but from the reviews I read, you may need to blast your ears out for several years before you can handle the treble
Then again, you might like the sparkle they provide. Who knows?post #4 of 412/22/10 at 5:40pm
Not true at all. The 325's have a wonderful sound, especially with a warm amp/DAC. When I demoed my 325's...I demoed the entire lineup except for the PS1000 and the HF series. I would take the 325 over any of them except the RS1 or the GS1000.
