I gotta find a Grado thread where there's some young people. For the record I'll be 58 in September. Next it'll be sexagenarians who can't hear an f•••ing thing trying to figure out which pads to put on their vintage "throwback" Grado's while plugging them into 75w McIntosh power amplifiers because they really can't hear a f•••ing thing. Hah? What?

So... Uh... I'm 32? And I like Grado? 

 

I feel like the Metamucil Mafia is gonna whip their brand new hips around and come after me any second now...

 

:biggrin:

Glad I'm not the only aging hard rocker here....49 in a couple of days.

 

I really like that Storm Corrosion album BTW. Good pick.

I traded away my nearly-new 4 month old BELOVED Grado PS 500s for AKG 3003i. IEMs, thinking that the HiFiMAN HE-500 I now have and the Sennheiser HD800s that are ordered but not here yet would take their place.

But NOPE! I have Withdrawal symptoms. I just KNOW that my next major headphone will be the Grado PS1000e.

Boys, boys, boys.

 

I expect:Dto turn 75 in October.  I'm still enjoying my 325i and WA6.  I'm not missing much.  (Like my dimmers?)

That's what I'm talking bout! To bring us full circle, you've got a half a century on me (compliments, not jabs) and I'm enjoying my woodied 325s through my Schitt A2/Bifrost as we speak.

I could've afforded anything I wanted, looking back at how much beer and girls cost my 20's

Received the WA6/6SN7 adapters this morning!

This afternoon I packed the 6-SE with all original content from Woo + a NOS Mullard GZ34 and NOS GE 6FD7's/NOS Syvania 6DR7's.

Afterwards I unpacked my WA6 and put the wood side panels/tube plate/aluminum bezels, and this time took off the aluminum transformer cover and just used the wood cover for a lower/sleeker look…then popped in the 596/NOS 1962 6SN7WGTA's and have been burning-in/listening with the RS1i's for about 4hrs, and I'm so glad to have my old set-up backjust can't wait to pass the 200hr mark for it too really shine like my previous one.

 

I will be listing my less than 2 month old 6-SE in 10/10 condition with about 60-80hrs on it, and the tubes mentioned above which all have about 30-40hrs on them, on the F/S Forum for a few days…if I don't get any replies I will put it up for bids on eBay. If anyone is interested before it goes to eBay, send me a PM. Here are some photos.
