not a huge discernible difference is made...but it still instills a smoothness to the sound which wasn't there prior. great little opamp.

i would love to demo an RS1i one day. but until then i can only take away what people on the forum say. would really love to directly compare it with my magnums....

no, not huge, but for $7.50 , (ebay) well worth it !!

Right, like I said a bit more detailed and clearer, and like you said, well worth the price!

Been listening to it for about 5 hours now.....using a huge playlist of flac files.........its been a great night so far and the night is still young!

 

Long live Rock & Roll

 

 

Talk about great synergy!

 

 

 

How bout some ZZ Top - Pearl Necklace!

 

 

A little Robert Cray -The Forcast Calls For Pain......Song is killer with this combo!

 

Time for a little night glow.

 

 

Time for another beer and maybe a change to the TTVJ flat pads.

wje.....this is for you.....$8.95 headphone stand is now holding my AGK Q701

 

New home for RS1i

 

 

 

 

I agree with you guys on the 2107 opamp for the LD1+

 

I found it more detailed also.

Oh, I am sorry.

 

I found mine at home Depot, in the section where they have all different kind of brackets that hang on a garage wall.

 

I would imagine Lowes would have them as well.

 

They make for a pretty nice headphone stand, I have used mine for over a year....it now house's my AKG  Q701

I checked.  Here is what Lowes offers.  Essentially the same thing, but due to the position it is in, it doesn't look correct.  However, when you flip it and have the larger bracket positioned on a desktop or tabletop, this should work well.

$50 is not cheap but for a handmade wood stand, with good materials and craftmanship, it seems pretty reasonable. and it will last a lifetime i would think

Necklace/Jewelry stands work fine as well. $25ish on eBay, lots of colors.

Same type of stand. My wife's "fashion cans". These are felt covered.
