Any tube recommendations for this combo from owners on here? I know there's a massive thread on the little dot tube rolling, but I haven't got much of a chance lately to read up on it...:(

 

Anyhow, these sound great! I've been Grado-less since I sold my last Rs1i, and I don't think I'll miss them much with these babies!:evil: All I need now is my Little dot!  ok, maybe a little

Once you have that tube amp, you won't miss em at all ;)

the LD1+ rules

post #12486 of 18002

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 #12494 of 18002

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 #12495 of 18002

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.
