i just rechecked, and on the rega site, in the user manual (pg 9) it says usb is limited to 16/44,48, if i read it correctly

optical and coaxial does go higher, i use a usb connection

Ahh, your right, I only use optical, didn't think about the USB.

Yes, I'm an optical guy. No, I'm still waiting for them, they're coming from CA. to N.Y. so I should have them sometime next week.

Glad to hear your loving you GS's from that big smile!

Are RS-1s without wooden buttons just as true to "Grado sound" as RS-1s with wooden buttons?

 

Earlier in this thread, I asked which Grado headphones best represented the "true Grado house sound" that made rock guitar and organ shine so well, and a number of folks advised that it was the RS-1 or the SR225.

 

See here:  http://www.head-fi.org/t/530965/grado-fan-club/17295#post_10744663 

 

So I have been searching diligently and without success for an RS-1 with wooden buttons.

 

I have just found a place that has RS-1s in the version WITHOUT wooden buttons (not the RS-1i or RS-1e, but RS-1, which is what I want).  The headphone has the thick cord as did my PS500s (I mention this because in a history of RS-1s, RS-1s with thinner cords are mentioned in one version).  The headphone is Serial Number 10011.

 

Do these button-less RS-1s represent the Grado sound as well as the (earlier I think) buttoned RS-1s?  Any advice you can provide by tomorrow, when I have to buy these because I leave the town they are in, would be most helpful.

 

Thanks!

 

P.S.

 

Clues from another thread indicate that the button was removed to remove a mid-high frequency peak, and that the RS-1s without the button sound better.  Here are two posts that say that:
