I must admit, my RS1i rarely gets the L-cushion removed from it.

Mine never come off either.

The (G's) are completely around the ear.

I prefer the G-cush over all too, however on the SR-80i it removed a lot of bass, and i had to really get used to that. On my RS-2 i punched some holes through the stuff on the back of the drivers.

i've just received my PH-1 pre amplifier. Now listening to Ommadawn by Mike Oldfield, on my RS-2 through RA-1, PH-1, and Gold 1 stylus. Fantastic.

Here's a photo of my complete collection, as of now.

I wouldn't have done it without head-fi. just 2 years ago i still used €9 earphones... i still have a pair of those, so that i may compare what i have now in case i ever believe it's not worth it.

I've just finished listening to Ommadawn, and am now listening to "keesojen lehto" by Pekka Pohjola.
A pre-amp makes a lot of difference, the sound is so much more detailed, "crisp" sounding now.

I am big fan of the SL1200 MKII personally, but have heard nothing but good things about the Technics linear trackers and have always been curious :)...

 

I have an SL1200 MKII I rescued from an abusive DJ in LA and restored to stock...its a delight and a joy.

The hair dryer combined with a fork/spoon works the best IME (a tapered handle utensil in case you haven't heard of it)
I couldn't get mine apart until I tried this method and it worked very well
