Grado Fan Club! - Page 844

post #12646 of 25073
I purchased my first Grado hp's end of last week. I got a pair of g-cushions just as a change of pace and for a different sound. They're very retro looking and super light. Oh and they sound great too, especially on live recordings.

For the Bonamassa fan club that keeps invading this thread :tongue_smile:  have ya'll gotten into either of his collabs with Beth Hart?

It's great to see some divergent opinions about various Grado's.  No one can rightly accuse us of being 'fanboys' who just love Grado's unconditionally!

post #12651 of 25073

Yes, and it's been that way for as long as I've been on Head-fi (circa 2004). Back then it was a heated debate between the 225 vs the 325 lovers :biggrin:

post #12652 of 25073

As long as we are going on about the 325is. I was listening to a blues song the other day and I heard something off to the right but I couldn't tell if it was wood blocks or some other kind of percussion instrument (on my HD650). So I grab the SR325 and listen and then it's 'Oh yeah it IS wood blocks" The ability these phones have to let you listen deep in the mix is amazing. Any time I get new equipment the first thing I use are the 325's to see what I got and if it is any good or not.

I think Grado's are some of the most detailed hp's in the business. Nothing is missed from the mids up. Only when listening to large complex orchestral pieces does my HD800 beat them in this area - but a large soundstage helps here of course.

We must never diverge from our Grado loyalty.  Death to infidels.:veryevil:

Thanks you guys. These things are awesome. Right now I'm just running thru my catalogue while powering the RS1i's with everything from my iPhone to my bands mixing board. So far no matter what the music or power source these phones sound great. I'll definitely be joining the Joe Bonamassa fan club too. I got a suggestion from MacedonianHero that I pair the RS1i's with the Mad Ear + HD amp and the Schiit Bifrost DAC. I'll just say that getting new hp's is going to allow me the opportunity to check out everything.

I would be willing to bet that you would love the Mad Ear+HD & RS1i combo.......VERY MUCH  :D

Here are some pic's of the WA6 with 1/4" oak side panels, after trying out the brown floor laminate, which looked very cheesy, but I did like the idea of the wood side panels on the WA6, as some amps do come with from the factory. 

My father did the cutting and radius to match the face plate looking straight on. Due too my vision, I only came up with the idea/color to go with the brushed/flat aluminum body of the Woo. I also intend to do the transformers top cover, and possibly the face of the volumeknob, I don't want the wood to be overkill! I used Martha Stewarts (BARN RED) from Home Depot since I could not find a stain in the (RED) I was trying too achieve. Wearing a vinyl glove, I wiped the paint on with my fingers then immediately wiped it off with a cotton T-shirt, repeating this 3 times, until I achieved the color I was looking for.

Wow :eek:

 

Very nice , Joseph....I really love the look.

 

I can't wait to see it when you get finished, and it looks beautiful, as is.

What driver tubes are you using in the WA6?
