Anything without opamps and an output transformer.


and yet another path unexplored for me !

The WA2 is certainly a great choice, especially if you have a range of cans to use, but would you buy it only for Grados?

Probably not. It would not have come to mind if i only had grados. SERENDIPITY!

Looking at that beautiful WA2 on the Woo site, it appears to have output transformers on each side of what I assume is the main power transformer in the middle. Just like my Quicksilver and Sonic Frontiers speaker amps. Yet it says it's OTL. Do tell about it!

Same here, I have my MkIII tube setup with my sacd player and my SS Headroom computer setup with a Modi dac.  I have my 325i on the tube setup and my 225i on the computer, which I am listening to at the moment. They both sound really good, I don't feel I am missing much no matter which one I listen to.

I like both tube and solid state...it is just all about the right synergy that floats your boat...whatever that takes.

those would be the power transformers. They don't really affect the tone like an output transformer.

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.

I agree, Warren Hayes is top notch!

Hey just curious-having just the 225i myself-do you think the fact that you have a good and a potentiall "better" HP affect your analysis of amp? I would assume everything generally sounds better on the 325. Or, perhaps they are close enough to compare amps.

I had both the 225 and 325 at the same time with the MKIII. There was very little difference other than a bit more bass and treble with the 325.

I'm using mostly my he-400 right now, but I'm thinking about getting pair of <$200 open headphones for traveling use.  Haven't tried any grado's yet.  Are these good all around cans?

That's kind of like going to a bar and asking if anyone likes beer :D 
.

Personally, I think that the 225i's I own are the best all around can that I own.  Not the best technically, but the most fun to listen to.

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:

i've never heard anything home/personal/headphone audio gear in balanced operation,

 

so, here's the big question, why would i want to go balanced, what are the real , audible, advantages ??
