powerful, a little more full sounding, less solid state sounding, and the little switches , especially the bass, nice!
listening to it now with the x's and gs's
i think i should add, with grado's i feel its much better, if memory serves, and it may not so much, the magni was maybe a little coarse, hard top end, not bad mind you, i just think the ican to be a much better grado wise, another "grado approved"
joedoe will get to try it out next weekend, mini meet #II
That is good to hear, I have been looking for a SS amp to replace this ageing Headroom Amp I am currently using and this may as well be it. Now the question is do I get the dac/amp combo, in which case what do I do with my Modi. Or get just the Amp version.
ANother question (or two) came up as I was reading reviews of Gardo headphones prior to my upcoming upgrade. I have seen several reviewers say in essense that unless money is no object, the Rs2i is a better value than the Rs1i as they sound very very similar. I was also wondering if any of you have had or do have both the PS500 and PS1000 and how much do they sound alike. In other words would this be another situation similar to the Rs1 and Rs2. Where does the GS1000i fit into all this?
