there is method, to my madness(a little anyway)

most of the time, i've gotten a pretty good deal, and i like to pass along the the saving to you !

when you deal with people you interact with, are friends with, you trust them more, they trust you more

deals have less chance of going south, they still can, but we are usually more apt to work with each other

i'm impatient, impulsive, in case y'all couldn't tell

i'm willing to take a little bit of a loss, sometimes more than others

there are still some moves i may make, being that i have the lcdx coming in, it could be possible

that'd i might want a woo, it might better serve grado's AND audeze , than the mad we'll see

and, while i love the wadia, i'm curious about the gungnir 3 outputs , 3 head amps, no cable changes !

nad m51, supposed to be killer sounding

benchmark dac2 d , killer sound, dsd, 3 outputs as well, and very good headphone amp itself

that's the general plan at the moment, subject to change at any time

whats not in that plan is letter either grado i have go, i'm a happy camper there

today received my oldest yet newest family member: the Buttoned Grado RS-1!

I think this will be part of my Grado home setup, not sure what to do yet with my RS-2.

The PS-1000 and GR-10 will be my portables.(you may call me nuts for this, if you must)

Already am. I believe the bass is more refined or the treble is more focused (compared to the RS-2) and i like it!

So I just got my GS1000's in.....just some early impressions. I haven't really got to spend a lot of time with these yet, but I seem to forming an opinion:) It seems to me that with every new headphone I buy I build up a little too much excitement in my head about how they should sound.I find that with Grado's I need to give some time to adjust to each headphone because frankly each one is different and from reading other people's impressions sometimes it is hard to get a beat on whether you are going to like it or not. So far, I am finding these to be pretty amazing. In a completely quiet room they pretty much sound like you are in the room with the musicians. I have listened to a variety of genres and they all sound dang good. I just don't get the whole harsh treble. This is a smooth sounding headphone. The bass is so full sounding but not overdone. The sound-stage that these throw is pretty dang large and the imaging is just perfect. At this point I would say these are the perfect compliment to the RS-1. I can understand people saying that the mid's are missing just a bit, but I don't really miss it because it does everything else so well. The details that these headphones reproduce is just fantastic. I'm listening to the Punch Brothers as I type this and I can't stop smiling. I'm keeping my RS-1's to rock out to.......

and the more you listen, the better they get, i think when you mate it with the rs1i, its a stellar combo, thats my take, and i'm sticking to it

I wasn't that upset when my GS's arrived and the right driver didn't work…but now I can't wait for them to restock, dam!

Congratulations, enjoy!

Jay, I e-mailed Crutchfield and they are going to e-mail me when they restock the GS's so I can order them immediately!

Not to interrupt the GS1000 party thread, but just wanted to drop some Grado-tastic experiences I've had recently. :gs1000smile:

 

1. Built my first cMoy earlier this week and I've been thoroughly enjoying my 325is through it. I got the standard DIY kit from JDS Labs and even though the Altoids tin almost took down my hole punch, everything in the build went smoothly. It's powered by a single 9V and said power is clean, thick, and meaty! Really fills out the lower mids and bass on my chromies. I don't really use the bass boost for the Grados but it is a nice option for my MDR V6s!

 

2. As per kvtaco's suggestion, I ordered a dual to mono OPA627 adapter for my LD 1+ from Hong Kong a while back and it finally arrived today. Plugged it right in and an hour in color me impressed. I've never thought the Grado treble harsh, but hearing how much smoother it is with this two ops working in tandem has made me think twice! The soundstage is certainly larger and most notably, the treble is VERY smooth. Still nice and energetic with Grado extension but instead of hearing the bite of the hihat in Back in Black's countoff, I hear the tone. I'm going to enjoy working my way through my New Cans playlist this evening gentlemen!

The hardware is timeless classic. The only thing tho, with so many debates on the high-end frequency if these cans, I don't think Mr. 73 year old is hearing them quite the way some of us young chickens are listening to him.  still respectable gear.
