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.

 

Glad you are not too bad off......wish I has some money, since you are in a selling mood....but unfortunately the HD800 has left me flat broke.....well not flat broke....I have $3.43 in my HE560 jar  :p

Yeah, that is the combo for me, so I'm going to et it back.

Thank you!

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.


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.

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


Sometimes those colds can really keep you down. Earlier in the year, I got a cold and a dry cough that did not go away for about two months. Total bummer. I thought something might be more serious. One day, I decided to take a Benadryl and the cough went away. The body and mind do strange things.

I know a lot of people swear by the MAD amps with their Grados but the WA6/RS1 combination is quite fantastic. I've never heard the MAD so I can't compare but of all my headphones the WA6 matches extremely well with the RS1. Followed closely by the AD2000X and 325is and Philips x1. The 225i still sounds best straight from my iPod or e10.

There's always something different to try! I'll be watching for Jay's LCD-X to go up very_evil_smiley.gif

I still stand on having a set of grados and a set of planars as the ultimate every-genre combo. That sweet tone combined with that sweet bass....

Thank you for the kudos, I appreciate it. And it is hard when you invest in what is an upgrade, then realize you loved what you had, and shouldn't have let it go. But regardless of Jacks decision about returning the 6-SW, I'm going to get the WA6 anyway and do what I have to do with the 6-SE. Thanks again.

You won't get an argument from me about this statement.

Waiting on Jay's LCD-X's with baited breath and cautious optimism.

I felt the same about an old girlfriend once, alas she didn't want me back.

I'm disheartened by my own jealousy.

I'll just wait patiently for joseph and jay to let us know their opinion when they receive their PS1000e. :D

There is really no right or wrong amp, people just have their preferences....The Mad & the Woo WA6 are both very, very nice amps that will power way more than just Grados with good synergy....they will power many different cans.  The Mad is amping my HD800 quite well

 

When I decided to get my Mad, one of the main things that I liked was the tubes that it used....they are much cheaper to roll....plus I liked the retro look....it reminded me of the RS1i's retro look.

 

I think both amps are all of what they are cracked up to be.  It just boils down to personal preference.

 

Many people like the looks of the Woo and they like the shiny look with the bigger tubes......if you own either, you should be very thankful, because you are enjoying your music in a very, very good way  :smile:

I believe in the Gradoe thread....someone will be comparing the PS1000i to the PS1000e

 

That should be a very good read.

I love my Grados but the LCD-2.1 really surprised me. I did not think I would like it as much as I do. I really have the urge to try more planars, LCD-X, LCD-2.2, HE-4 and HE-500 are all on my want to try list. Love the Rev1s liquid warm sound and I'd like something that would be a good compliment to it. something with more detail and air but still strong deep bass.

yep, when you hit a certain level, most all are good, just different, and will appeal to different people whether its amps, or headphones

 

macedonianhero is selling the pair of ps1k's he got from me, to get the ps1ke
