If we're sharing cute kids...here's mine enjoying a little vintage SR80 pink goodness. She asked to listen to the Pitch Perfect soundtrack unfortunately, but at least she's on the right track with gear...

I really like planar bass.  But, that's all I like about them.

this is sounding really good on my RS1s and E10.

I didn't plan on it but I bought a 225i after having the 80i for a little while. The price was too tempting. I occasionally look through Amazon Warehouse Deals for open box items and I found them for $157.

I have also finally experienced the pairing of Grado headphones with a tube amp and vintage tubes. That is a perfect combination.

Congrats.

 

That is a great price!

The 225i is the only Grado I have owned twice...I also had a pair of 225 with pink drivers. Definitely the perfect spot in the Grado line up. They respond really well to wooden cups as well if you feel adventurous.

I have an entry level Bravo Audio Ocean as my first tube amp. I immediatly swtiched tubes because the stock tube is horrible. I currently have three vintage tubes and they are far superior with my SR80i. An American made Amperex adds warmth and baas that I find appealing and the same with an RCA tube. I haven't gotten to the Philips tube yet and I have two Japanese tubes on the way.

Yes!  There are not too many artists nowadays that can top Warren Haynes with his talent.  There are others that I can't forget, though.  Joe Banamassa., Stevie Ray Vaughn, Clapton, Buddy Guy, Derek Trucks, and the list goes on ...

 

On the Grados, I really tend to love acoustic guitars, though.  The string detail really comes through well.

oh my freaking god !!!  :basshead:    (the asgard 2 just arrived)   the lcd2.2 likes the lyr, it LOVES the A2 !!

its been very rare that i've ever preferred solid state to tubes, but the lyr isn't the best match for the audeze

its good, but any reservation i had about the lcd's bass not seeming quite right, a little loose, wooly etc whatever is said in some PM's

i take it all back ,

A2 for the LCD, little dot for the grado's !!  anyone want a lyr ?? its great with grado's , lol

post #10379 of 24399

Sell the Lyr to help fund the Audeze

Jay- this is the reason I stay away from tubes.  They're great for midrange, but nothing grabs onto the lowest octave like solid state.  I find it true in pro bass gear and home audio alike.

 

How much you thinking on selling the Lyr for?  And yes, this is one more step on the way to the eventual Mjolnir :tongue_smile:
