Doubt it's the listening room....sound of the ac would interfere with critical listening tests :wink_face:

Was happy to see the vinyl stacked up in the listening room, especially that minty looking Columbia "six eye" label one in the foreground...

Hey, I also have a pair of Ohm Walsh 5's that I use every day that I bought new in 1985. They still sound great.

My GS1000i phones are one of my favorites and I also use them almost every day.

Walsh 5's look pretty awesome. There's a pair of Ohm Walsh DOUBLE F's on 'bay. My downstairs neighbor would hate me if I had a set of those.

Why say that?  I lived in a townhome for a number of years and shared a common wall with my neighbor.  We had some kind of agreement ... and I was able to use my SVS "water heater" subwoofer.   ;)

My speaker of choice actually led me to try Grado's.  Ohm Acoustics is also manufactured in Brooklyn.  They are built by hand, and each speaker is tuned by ear, pretty much just like Grado.

The thing that makes them special is the Omni-directional design using a form of Walsh driver. It's an inverted driver than reproduces the entire frequency range up to 8000 Hz, where a super tweeter takes over.  The soundstage is MASSIC, and the imaging is scary in its precision.  They are not well-known, but they have a dedicated following that goes back to the 70's.

More info can be found here :  http://www.ohmspeaker.com/speakers/

I personally have the Ohm Micro Walsh Talls, and I used to own a pair of Ohm F's.  I doubt that I will ever need to buy another speaker brand- they are simply amazing.
just something to consider In the realm of loudspeakers.....http://m.hammacher.com/Product/11987?promo=search

Hi guys... just in case anyone is looking for sexy Grado cans:

So that Grado mahogany box was delivered today.  Honestly the quality is pretty cheap/bad in my opinion.  especially for the $100 price tag.  Would not recommend it.

 

The finish on the bottom edges is chipped and flaking.  The lid does not sit flush and is uneven.  The corner joints don't appear to be finished very well either.  I suppose it's my own fault for hoping the larger insert would fit the HP2's....but I can always just cut the foam larger so that's not really an issue.

 

Pictures below:

 

 

 

 

 

basically, if you need a display / storage case you're probably better off with different options.

If I paid $100 for that box I'd demand a refund.

 By all means I don't intend to add fuel to the fire…but thats really poor!!!

I'd return that also!
