I think that some members of the Grado family are still too aggressive for me ie. 325/MS2, SR125, but I really like everything about the MS1. This recent development also has made me VERY curious to get my hands on some upper level Grados, especially of the RS1/2 variety. If anyone is looking for a permanent trade or a two week loan, please PM!

Now time to show the L cushes some love...
I had the HD600 in my checkout cart at one point, and ended up buying the RS1i for this very reason. At first I thought I wanted variety from my SR225s, but I couldn't fool myself, lol

The SR200 have the HP1000 drivers and are absolutely fantastic. I would have grabbed them if I didn't already have a pair.

So I stumbled upon what I believe is a good deal and purchased a Woo WA6...curious to see how it compares to my OTL LD MKIII.

Should work very well with Grados...

I hope so. I've always read how OTL amps are not ideal for low impedance headphones but never really understood what the actual impacts are to the sound you hear. The MKIII always sounded good to me but this will be my first TC amp so we'll see I guess.

So I got the WA6 today but I need to connect it to the rest of my system.  I have all my components going into a Pro-Ject switch box, then from the box it used to go to the MK III.  But the MK III had a line out so I can "split" signal to my amp for my speakers.  the WA6 doesn't have a line out.   I need something to take the RCA output of the switch box and split it into to two RCAs, one to the WA6 and the other to my amp.  What is the best/easiest way to do this?

Are people not aware that there happens to be legitimate auction sniping software available?  Then again, the seller must be quite happy to see the price going up each day until the close of the auction.

Guess I'm not the only one who trolls ebay for vintage Grados. So am I bidding against anyone on here for the 200's? I really want to add some hp drivers to the collection.

And all this time I thought I was the only one. From time to time I still wonder why it is I prefer the sound of a $300 phone over that of a $600 one, even more so when I find that 90% of the people on this forum feel the opposite. My own personal opinion...Sr325i is the best phone I have heard for less than $1000. Having said that though I am still planning on getting an RS1i when I get my tax refund this coming year, so that may change...slightly! :)
