I asked in the RS1 thread but it seems to be pretty dead there so I'll try here.

Does anyone know what year Grado started putting serial numbers on the RS1?

I searched ebay, amazon and this thread a bit, but having a hard time finding a good travel case. 

 

I see Grado offered one some years ago but not now apparently

Matched serial numbers. However, the HF-1 is not original since it was transferred into wooden cups. Hmm ...

Yeah.  Not exactly a good selling point.  Although, those cups could be interesting.

 

For me, mods make sense if I plan to keep it, or if it is a reputable mod, like one of the Fostex driver mods like Paradox, or my Alpha Dogs.

 

Now, all original for those two would be a different matter.

Nice to see the Little Dot I+ arrived so quick.  I was excited when getting home today and seeing a little envelope waiting for me.  Oh yeah ... during an insomnia stupor, I went ahead and ordered 2 Op-Amps. The one that arrived today was the Burr Brown 2107. Since I'm the second or third owner of the Little Dot I+  I assumed that the original Op-Amp from Little Dot was still probably in place.  Nope.  It had a 2107 in the socket ... so, nothing new to try out.  The Burr Brown 2111 should be here in a few days.  I'll see what kind of excitement that brings to the LD I+.

 

The OPA2107 was only about $7.00 or $8.00 with shipping to get to me.  I thought for some reason, my LD I+ sounded pretty nice with the VoshKod tubes. It turns out the OPA2107 was helping them along a lil' bit.

 

That price off of Amazon with free shipping is an excellent price.  That's about the going rate here in the F/S section when you consider the amp is about $100, then add the shipping in there and you're at $115.

the tubes and opamp you have in place are exactly the ones i have in place too. i haven't had it stock in so long...pretty much forgot about it

i'm really enjoying my PS1000, however, as it's quite old, the aluminium could use a polishing and a layer of whatever was on there.

 

anyone has any tips for this? and will the lettering survive?

yeah the same amp from LD on ebay comes with $34 shipping, so i splurged on some telefunken eh900s tubes , glad i did, these are the best tubes i've heard with the LD

next i may try my hand at a op amp swap

Not too sure how Grado finished the cups, but you could take it to an Auto or machine shop of sorts and see if they could re-finish them. The problem is, they would want the drivers and sleeves removed so they could work only with the metal.

 

I might be an oddity of opinion, but the aged look kind of suits them in my opinion...:)
