Yeah, I love the look of those goldies, as well.

 

I also love the "in your face" style of the 325.

Guys, I think I've contracted a case of Grado-itis. I've got both the HD650 and 600 and more times than not, I find myself preferring the Grado sound over the Senns... 

 

Even my MS1i and (at the time) 225i's were getting more head time than the Senns. 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...

Lol, same here as i used my MS1's then 225i's 99% of time while feeling guilty for not using the HD650's.

 

I recently found a second hand pair of MS-Pros, honestly do not think i've used the 650's since, nor do i aspire to own anything else.  ...for the moment. Though the HD800's sound interesting :rolleyes:

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.

up to almost $300 now with 4 days to go. 

 

i'm guessing this will end up at $500+ just for the HP1000 drivers :eek:

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?
