I am about to buy the Asgard amp then it's probably the PS-500's for me. So I would like to be in the club with everyone!

I really love this forum, it's just so much fun here!

Welcome to the family smily_headphones1.gif

For me, The PS-500 is a sweet spot, you'll be getting the typical grado sound with extra warmth

Just about to plug my 125i's into my little dot :D

Although i'm a little worried... the power in the UK is 240v... I have a 250v cable included and power socket on the unit has a 250v fuse in it, but the sticker on the back of the unit only says 220v... am i missing something?

 

Also, to open it up, which screws do I need to remove?

If you're just borrowing be prepared to spend some money buying a pair.

SJWorne:The voltage changed from 220v to 230v in Europe sometime ago. It shouldnt matter as its usually less that that.

Got the RS2 in the mail today on audition. 

 

The BxG is hooked up to the Magni and the RS2 is hooked up to Vali. these combos are simply amazing. 

 

BxG 395.00 Magni 99.00 Magni adds a little more treble detail to the BxG, I feel this is a better match then Vali as it is "darker/watery" amp This is an excellent combo if you want to brighten up the BxG just a bit. The bass and mid range with the magni is well controlled not bloated not floppy.

 

RS2 495.00 Vali 120.00 Just wow this little combo is amazing. The amount of detail that is present in the RS2 is just slightly more then BxG just slightly but you can hear a difference. The bass is normally not know well with the Grado line up but this just sounds smooth and is present. The treble is tamed slightly compared to the magni but it is still detailed.

Nice. I'd love to try a Schiit amp...maybe the Vali with the RS1i would be the best option since it seems to pair well with the RS2. I'd really like to try a Asgard though. But the way the LD1+ pairs with them, I'm not in any hurry to try other amps.

Guys and Gals,

 

Amazon uk have a warehouse deal (ex stock I suppose) on a set of GS1000i for £800. Other decent non grado items there too. £300 too much for my budget sadly.

i have the lyr, vali, i've had the A2, and the little dot 1+,

the vali does pair well with the rs1i, speed, pace , bass has impact

My SR60 is coming up on 10 years! The headband slips out of the plastic block, but otherwise they are still great.

Buy some 1/8" shaft collars from your local hobby shop, problem fixed. Take a look at my profile photos to see them, there great to keep the adjustment right were you want them.

I forgot to indroduce myself as a Grado fan. I have old SR60 (pink driver) and I love it. For now I'm more into modding px100ii driver with wood cups than upgrade to higher model of Grado, thought I wouldn't say no to either PS500 or RS1i (after auditioning them first).
