Should have been more clear, apologies. I meant the presentation brings the performers physically closer to you in the soundstage. The guitars are right there in front of you, which I really dig a lot. Don't know if there are any Protest the Hero fans around here, but they sounded KILLER on the GS1K.

And no, unfortunately, there wasn't a PS1K there. Looks like there will be next time though, right, Jay? biggrin.gif

Congratulations on your Magnums, enjoy them!

I didn't realize you and Jay were at the same meet, so he had already told me there were no PS1K's prior to asking you, thanks.

Pretty sure I will have the GS1000 at some point.

The ones 7keys had up? Those should be brilliant. The guy who made the cups is legendary...

Your systems are awesome guys. I hope I can join your club soon. My current desktop set up (sadly no wa6 or rs1i/ps1000 for now):

Fiio e07k (DAC only) -> jds labs O2 -> SR325is

I have to say I didn't think it would get much better than the SR80i, but after purchasing a pair of the latest 325's I know it does. Now I can't stop wondering how much better it gets. I can picture myself easily getting a pair of rs1i or gs1000i in the near future; Christmas maybe smily_headphones1.gif

you have 325's.....you are already in the club  :smile:

Also, you'll never stop wondering how the other Grados sound!

The 80's/325's are a great headphones, so enjoy them.

post #14662 of 26151
Thanks; I know.

I am really enjoying my SR325is at the moment.

I am also trying to bring my girlfriend into the club by lending her the SR80i. This will make it easier to explain when I buy the next Grados (hopefully smily_headphones1.gif)

I have to say I was a little worried about the 325's brightness that everybody talks about (more curious than worried actually), but I don't find them that bright. I mean, these are not smooth, but they are not that bright either imo.

They will smooth out very nicely in time. If you initially don't feel they are that bright, they are only going settle and become smoother. This is normal for Grados…they need burn-in and also adjusting too, give them time, youll be very impressed.

My 325is are still smoothing out and they are several weeks in. Still just getting better, and I've found that I've finally hit a "wow" factor where I can get really immersed with them. They still get better even from there though! These phones need a TON of burn-in.

Will I'm sure that the 80 thousand dollar McIntosh brought out how good they were. I can honestly say that neither the GS1000 or the RSi were any theat to the PS1000 at their full potential. For that matter the PS500 were in second place in all genres including classic. On a superior sound system like that one there was no need for the particular flavors of the different headphones. The Grado PS1000 were the only ones that could every single delicate nuance that system had to offer. It made me almost wish I had never heard such perfection beings I'll most likely never own such a sound system. But I do know what I am shooting for and in my budget I'm pretty sure it will involve a pair of PS500 not lacking one bit when played to their full potential with an NAD dac to a legendary McIntosh tube pream to a vintage 70's Marrantz amp. Even thou I'm leanning more and more to vinyl. Vintage turn table with grado cartridge NAD pp-4 phono preamp with usb analog digital converter to a NAD dac amp and some tubes in there somewhere.

I have been thinking about a nice turntable also.....I have a ton of vinyl just sitting in my basement, it's been in hibernation for a very long time now.

Wow.  there is NOTHING in the FR that makes me want to try the Audeze.  Max volume would be needed.

 

The spike in the PS1K looks a little painful though...
