that's one site i check all the time

 

problem is most of them paid canadian retail and want $600+ for used RS1's when i can get new USD cans for $750

 

just keeping options open, i have a US address i can ship to but if i can save some $$$ in the process then so much the better :)

There is a pair on Canuck Audio Mart today for $495... might be worth a look.

I got mine for $500 CAD. But yes they can be more expensive. The cheaper ones are usually people who bought used off of head-fi initially and decided to sell.

Nice, I was wondering why mine didn't have pre-outs, I didn't realize it was an option, good for you. I can't wait for you to get the GS1000 either!

post #11288 of 27780

Can't wait to read your impressions about them, because in my opinion, the GS1000i are very underrated.

pre amplifier outputs, allows the headphone amp to control an amplifier, or on my case, powered speakers

There are a number of ways that the output from a headphone amp work:

 

1. Some are just line out pass through so one can put the headphone amp in the chain if one's amp/pre-amp doesn't have a tape out. In this case the volume control on the Woo will not impact sound. This function allows one to stick a headphone amp between the source and speaker amp without impacting speaker amp SQ.

2. Some are passive pre-amp (MAD are like this) where the signal is attenuated by the Woo's volume control but their is no added pre-amplification. You hear exactly what the source produces, but you can adjust volume. This function is ideal for powered speakers.

3. A true pre-amp will amplify the signal from the source and send a stronger signal to the amp than if the source is attached to the amp directly. Decware CSP driving the Taboo is an example of a true pre-amp that impacts the SQ rather than just allowing volume control function.

Nice, congratulations, can't wait to hear your impressions on them, as I mentioned, I'm a bit curious to as they sound. Also if you get the time maybe some pic's? I didn't know they had work done by Martin Audio, they must look great! Enjoy!
