PM me if anyone is interested before I put them up. 

Thanks


What's going on, I thought they were your new favorite headphone?

After listening to each of them for about a month, I preferred the RS over the PS for my taste (genres) The PS is a beautiful sounding headphone, and I'm very glad I got to spend the time I did with them... but going from one to the other I just enjoy my RS's due too their more upfront presentation, and don't feel the need to own both. I'm also going to contact Woo and see if I can exchange the 6-SE for another WA6 so I can use the 6SN7 tubes, believe it or not! I really miss the 596/6SN7 tube combo I had with the WA6/RS1i's.

I never heard anything that I liked better, and left me in such an amazed state after listening. So I'm sure to most, it seems I'm going backwards, but thats not what my ears are telling me.

I was where I wanted to be before going nuts with all the "up grades" and just didn't realize it until it was gone. So I'm going back to where I was the most satisfied, and being true too myself.

Wow....I thought you were really liking them also....but hey....what works best is where you want to go.

 

I have been lucky as I have never really even thought about a Grado higher than the RS1.

 

I hope you can get the WA6 back, if that is the amp you wish to have, Joseph.

 

keep us informed, and I wish you luck  :smile:

I do really like them, there are great, but I just like something better about the RS's, so I have to go with them. I just e-mailed Jack, so I'll see what he says and take it from there.

I will keep you posted, and thank you very much for the good luck! I just want to get back where I was.

What a crazy journey I'm having!!!

I'll say one thing for you. I don't know of many, myself included, that have such a precise idea of what they want their system to sound like. I don't know what I'd do if I did know, but it must be nice to not only know that, but to have achieved the same. If it were me I'd be digging through the garbage looking for that HiFiMan EF2a I threw away <G> Anyway, I wish I were like you in that regard, it would save me a lot of money. I was just chuckling to myself thinking of that, putting some headphones on and listening to a cd and saying to myself, "This is it, done, no more upgrades." That will be the day.

Hmmm...any reason why the single BA driver Grados would sound better then the new multi BA drivers and the Hybrids?

Seems strange to me that they didn't upgrade them with the e series.

So you do know what I mean when you say you would be looking throughout the garbage for your HiFiMan EF2a's. Yeah, after all of the different headphones/amp/tube combos, it boils down to the RS1i/WA6/596-6SN7 for me…definitely!

Thanks!

As of right now I too prefer the RS1i's to the PS1K's. Maybe I don't have the the 1k's broken in yet....which is what I'm hoping. Some things are better on on the 1k's though (especially detail).

post #15954 of 24562

just back from meeting up with fred(oteil) the ps1k's do indeed have a new home, i think given more time, and that i didn't need to raise a little cash relatively fast, i would have ended

up keeping the ps1k, and selling the lcd x,

i've got the AD, and the gs1k back up for sale, but i may take them down and put the lcd x up, and see what happens, and maybe even let one of the amps go, i'm just in a selling mood i guess !

or i could just stay put , who knows what's next

 

not feeling too bad, just fighting one of those summer cold type things, sore throat, sniffles, no energy, i've slacked off on my vitamins, but i've restocked, i got too much to do to let a little cold slow me down too much

My PS1K's were broken in for sure, and are great headphones no doubt, but I wanted to see which I preferred and this was my initial reason in getting them, and I prefer the RS1i's for me.

Yeah, I guess we are always going to have that combo that we just really dig.....RS1i.....Mad Ear ...and 5751 Sylvania triple mica black plate tube for me.

 

I think everyone prolly has that certain combo, that just gets it right for them.

 

Kudos to you for going back to get it, if that is what you like.

I give you kudos for your honesty. It's hard when you invest in an upgrade to let it go and go back to what you had earlier. But, as a new RS1i owner, it makes me feel like I'm in the right place.

 

I have second thoughts about my gear all the time. Well, maybe I should have waited and got something else...or, why didn't I just keep this or that.
