Even if they are par for the course, I made some extra money after selling the Bushmills and buying the RS1 so I still did ok. 

I didn't realize you sold the Bushmills, was there any particular reason, or was it to try the RS1's?

 Just read your post on why you sold them, I read this thread first, then the Bushmills thread. I have the RS1i's and I'm waiting for the Bushmills which where shipped yesterday, so I can't wait to hear the differences between the RS's and the other Grados I own. The RS's are a great headphone, you will definitely enjoy them, congratulations!

Yeah, that's the only reason. I figured that I'll have a better change getting another Bushmills or the new non-Bushmills version in the future for the current price then I would the RS1i for the price I got them for. Plus, as awesome as the Bushmills are, RS1's are...well...RS1's. They are a better headphone as they should be.

Here is a sneak peek at what I got my son for Christmas.

 

Thanks to Rick B here at the forums for the great deal on the 225i's....they even came with a set of TTVJ flat pads!

 

The modi is new, the cans and the amp are used...but both are in fantastic condition.

 

My son is going to be so pumped!

 

My sister got him a cd...AC/DC Live At River Plate....gonna be a rocking Christmas :L3000:

 

 

Glad he is not a member here...no sneak peek for him!

Thanks guys.

 

I can't wait to see his face when he gets it.

 

When he gets it all set up, I will give it a listen.

 

I did plug the 225's in my amp, to make sure they worked ok....but I did not listen for very long, in fear he may come home.

My little dot won't get to me until 2nd Jan now... jealous! :P
And all the talk of RS1i's is making me want to spend some serious money :D

Mine should be here Thursday :)

 

And I'm pretty sure there will be a new (to me) LD1+ under the tree in the morning. I'll be able to give the Bushmills a listen on it before I ship them out on Thursday and just in time for the RS1's to arrive on Thursday. Can't wait!

You guys will like the LD1+

 

It is a great little amp for the money.

 

Being able to roll tubes and opamps is a great option at a very affordable price.

Yeah, I loved mine until I killed it...lol

This might be a stupid question... but is there any danger in plugging heaphones in and out of the amp whilst it is turned on?

Not a stupid question, at all. I used to wonder the same thing, but I still did it as long as the volume was all the way down, When I received the WA6, in the manual it states it is perfectly fine to plug/unplug headphones as long as the volume is all the way down, there is no harm to the amp/headphones. So being I always did this, this just reassured me.

Thanks for that! :)

Another question... whilst i'm saving up for my DAC, I have to plug the little dot amp into my sound card... this only has a 3.5mm jack output (that I can use) and this has an on-board amplifier... 
I will have to get (or make) a splitter from the 3.5mm jack to RCA's... will this be ok considering that the jack on the sound card already has an amplifier on the card?
