My RS1 classic has holes, i believe 3, and my PS1000 has 4 holes. My RS2 classic had none.

Have you taken your PS1K's apart?

Or did you see the holes through the ear cups?

I don't think anybody can do a Tom Waits cover....

PS500, GS1000i & PS1000 all have holes, which give them the extra bass.

I wasn't aware that any of the other models had driver holes ...

Uh...Steve Reich and Philip Glass

I am building a minimalist music library...
Drumming is also great.

I'm thinking that the Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart also has some cool stuff out there too.

I don't have much traditional minimalism. Terry Riley and Steve reich are my favourites that I have, I enjoy la monte young for his drone pieces, i love drone a lot

I do have a large electronic ambient/minimal collection and a fair amount of drone rock stuff

I posted this in the what are you listening to thread, but I just wanted to say how great blues sounds on Grados as we all know. Fact is, I have tons of rock and metal and a growing classic jazz collection, but not that much straight blues. I like Clapton, Neil Young, BB King, Robert Cray. But just don't own tons of blues.

 

My Dad passed away several years ago. This weekend, my Mom gave me a couple of his CD's. They sound stunning on my 225i through my dedicated rig:

 

 

From the 30's and 40's.... very dated....folk blues

 


I don't know enough about different blues to be articulate, Delta, Chicago, Memphis, etc. But, I know I like this. Junior Wells, Ike and Tina Turner, Mississippi John Hurt, Memphis Slim, John Lee Hooker-great stuff!

Don't forget Philip Glass...

 

I think that if one listens to ambient and other 'slow' electronic music, classical minimalism is not far away.

 

Philip Glass - Violin Concerto (Concerto Grosso No.5)

 

...picked it up from a friend...one of my favourites

I'd take them apart only if i knew exactly how to put them together with the same glue again.

Holding them against light reveals holes smily_headphones1.gif

Anybody here a fan of Robbie Williams BTW? Because i'm at his concert right now wink.gif

This is my exact reason for asking…I'm not sure if they use the same type of glue as the plastic driver housings, the wood driver housing probably uses a different glue.

What do you mean by "Holding them against light reveals holes"??? I don't follow what you mean. Thanks for the response.

If you like traditional blues might as well start at the begining ...

When you hold a light on the driver and look through the back you can see the holes
