Any particular reason, or just your preference between the all tube vs hybrid?

 

Just my preference, though the larger variety of tube options for the Woo and my finding a combination I like probably has more to do with it than the differences in topology.  Wanted to find something that took the edge of the PS1Ks a bit.

You see, I don't find that they are edgy, but I do feel they can sound more alive…don't get me wrong at all about the WA6, I love it, but I may feel the PS's would benefit from the current, I don't know.

My Grado SR-60i and RS1i phones sound fine with the Lyr - apart from the HUGE hum, which makes it unusable with them. I don't know if it is endemic, or I am unlucky, but I only use my Lyr with higher impedence cans such as the HD650s, where the hum is not really noticeable unless you are listening for it.

Well, as I have posted once, why not another? I am very much enjoying the SR-60i phones which I got in a bundle with the Meridian Explorer - so much so that I ordered the RS1i to get 'more'. The funny thing is, I sometimes reach for the simple pleasures of the Sr-60i when listening straight from a Walkman or a Chromebook. This is my question.... (roll of drums)...

 

Do I need to get the SR-80i as well? It gets such a good press...

i never had a hum with my lyr, maybe a little noise at high volume, with no music,

i found the lyr to be very good with my rs1i. and gs1k

The noise, may just be a tube.

Something wrong with your Lyr, mine is dead quiet with my Grado's.

Makes them sound unusable doesn't sound good.

Congratulations on the RS1i's.

I don't think you need too get the 80i's.

Not technically Grados, but I just received my first pair of Magnum v4 cans, and man, on an initial impression-- I LOVE 'em!!! Going to get some more listening done this evening, but man, I'm very impressed so far... Steely Dan's Aja sounds MADE for these!!! Now to try some metal... ;)

post #14789 of 24589
Of all the nice and sometimes expensive gear I have I am always impressed by how good the SR225i sounds straight into my iPod classic. I don't know what it is but that's pretty much a perfect combination for me.

sinergy imo

 

there is a sinergy between my old walkmen and my old sr-60

 

listening to music is the point right

sometimes too much sound makes you listen to sound

...

 

sometimes you dont want things to sound good

you want yourself to feel good

 

less is more   ...   more often than we like to admit imo

 

im not really enjoying music better with my rs2i than i did with my old sr-60

but i do enjoy sound better
