Yeah.....The LD1+ is a nice amp for Grado's.......especially if you are on a budget.....you can roll tubes and op amps and all for such a relatively small price.

 

A very big bang for your buck.

 

My son is rocking my LD1+ with some SR225i and he is loving every minute of it.

I've had 3 or 4 different pairs in the past year and a half, and came to the conclusion that I prefer the older Rs1 with buttons. The last pair I sold was a more recent Rs1i from 2013 and it did not pair well with my gear like the older Rs1 did.

I almost pulled the trigger on one last week, it was for a great price, but it was in very poor cosmetic condition and looked a bit dusty also so I passed on it.

At this point, and due to getting very limited listening time at home, I'd rather get a nice budget setup and not feel guilty if I dont get to use it too much, and feel like a big part of my headphone buget is just sitting at home not being enjoyed.

No kidding!  I spent a lot of time and money putting my humble system together, and have had one listening session in the past week.  It sounds great when I listen, but most of the time I'm just looking at it lately...

Nice. you're a great parent to showcase that to em. Would love if my pops set me up with such a setup, without me having to conduct all the research independently, lolz

same. I just returned to my magnums actually. a big reason is because I listen to a lot of msuci on the go now so my e11 and v-modas are seeing a lot of use. Also I have a great record player set up so i use that a lot now too.

I try to listen at least 4-5 nights a week, even if its only for an hour or so. But sometimes I'll go for 3-4 hrs when I'm in the mood to listen, and when that great sound draws me in theirs nothing I can do.

^^ I seem to get at least an hour or more of listening a night not matter how busy I am. Just enjoy!

post #12474 of 26182

Yup you have to make time!  Put my son to bed, make sure the wife is happy watching the Kardashians or similar drivel.. 

 

My time :) 

post #12475 of 26182

I usually listen to at least an hour, or at the very least one album a night.

 

Then I will plug in my iems at bedtime and maybe listen to another album.

Do those fit straight in without an adapter? If so, what family do they belong to?

Thats where you need to get yourself a bedside rig :) An indispensable imperative to help one drift off on a evening. One final escape from the terrors of modern life before sleep encapsulates. :bigsmile_face:

 

heres mine 

 

Or more recently

                   

 

But all you need is an ipod - modi - LD1+ and of course a Grado of choice. And this will still leave room for a book, glass of water and narcotics :D

post #12479 of 26182

Or a carefully drawn out extension cord with a choice playlist will do nicely also ;)
