RS1i's were just, I don't know, 'off?' to me, something not quite right to my ears.

 

PS500's are the ones for me, with G cush.

 

I auditioned them all at the same time and the PS500 came out the winner.

Interesting! To each his own my friend. Everyone's ears are different so as long as you let them be the judge, you surely can't go wrong.

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.

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.

Thanks, I always thought wood panels add a touch of class too an amp, like the MAD.

1966 Sylvania 6SN7WGT's, and I just put the S/P 274B back in after a week of listening with the Mullard 5V4G/GZ32.

Thanks Jay, I appreciate the compliment from you and everyone else! I thought it needed some real wood panels. I'll show some more pic's after the transformer cover gets made.

Anything on the WA6 SE?

Well in fact you do have some awesome amps on hand, so you might as well enjoy them, plus the WA6 SE isn't going anywhere, you can always pick one up in the future, (which I'm sure you will)!

Congratulations on the Alpha Dogs, I've read a lot of people really like them.

I just realized, if I had a nickel for every time you bought/sold/traded something, I'd be rich LOL... good for you enjoy!

Never late to the party!!

Anyway, I auditioned the PS500 & RS1i and walked away with the PS500. Really, really tried to love them for 29 days and on the 30th, exchanged them for the RS1i.  Never looked back.

Anyway, enjoy!!

Hey guys. I'm currently running macbook pro---fiio e10---little dot 1+ (with tube/op amp upgrade)----Magnums.

 

 

I am about to be receiving a pair of 325i's. I'm about to have some extra cash in the upcoming weeks and was curious if I should upgrade my DAC. I love my LD1+ and see no reason to upgrade this portion of my setup. I have been looking into either getting an ODAC, or perhaps a Schiit Modi. Would these be an audible upgrade from my e10? Does anyone have this setup? I could sell my e10 for around 50 buck and then only pay around 50 or so for the ODAC or Mobi. Would this upgrade warrant the 50 bucks I'd be spending or should I just be complacent with my current set up? Would love to hear some feedback. Thanks guys!
