Just got my SR325e. Doesn't have the "e" yet in the logo. But it has the new "e" series red driver visible inside.

I was listening to my RS2i's this morning and I started to notice something, they are starting to sound REALLY good on my new Valhalla 2 amp. Sometimes I am so dense, I forgot about the tubes needing time to burn-in, this is the first tube amp I bought brand new. I strongly suspect it will get even better with some more time. I have read around 50hrs and I have about 10 so far. So, I take back all that stuff I said about the Valhalla 2 not working well with Grado's, it works very well. I won't go so far as to say I like it better than my Lyr, but I like it better than my Lyr <g>. Now to make up my mind..RS1E or GS1kE

Let's just say (hypothetically speaking) that I order a pair of grado's and for whatever reason, dont fall in love with them. Or alternatively let's say I do fall in love with my first pair and decide to sell and upgrade. smily_headphones1.gif

Do grado's hold their resale value well?

if you buy used you should be abe to sell without much of a loss, if any. Buying new, not so much.

The RS1E fits different then the old RS1i... ears closer to the driver... I kinda prefer the fit of the old "i" but I appreciate the new more refined "e"...

I've only heard the old GS1000/i not the "e"... I have owned the RS1i and now have the RS1e. I hopefully soon will be able to get some time with the the old "i" to get a better comparison. As it sits now the "e" has better treble refinement, smaller sound stage, a touch less bass impact, better detail and better dynamics. This is going from memory though... so until I can arrange time to audition the RS1i with a local fellow take my opinion with a grain of salt.
