I will still always prefer albums of theirs like Blackwater Park or Still Life - but the newest album is more enjoyable for me than Heritage. I enjoy all of their albums though, just some a lot lot more than others. Great mastering job.

The Clapton unplugged album is epic!

How did you like your 325is after you woodied them? what type of wood did you use? I'm heavily considering woodying my 325is. I would be getting a full woody, not just a slip on, and the wood will be indiana rosewood. do you just have slip ons on em or did you liberate the driver and install a full wooden enclosure? Thanks for your time man. 

 

if anyone else has been in my shoes before or has any input in regards to my question please don't hesitate to hold back :)

thanks.

 

checked them out with my RS-1 Classic and WA6.

 

The Duke Ellington and Ella Fitgerald tracks sounded great.

 

But I don't care what I use to listen to non-Cream Eric Clapton, it all sounds like shvt to me.

 

 

Funny enough with the 325is with the same tracks did not sound as nice.  the hats and cymbals are just too bright and you can hear Ella's breath a little too much. The bass on Toot Suite was too boomy for my tastes too, althogh my 325is has the vent mod.  Something strange though, the 325is had quite a wider soundstage compared to the RS1 which I never noticed before.

Even Derek and the Dominoes?

 

Otherwise, I'm with ya.

i'm not a duke or clapton fan (nor a hater) but i can listen to ella day and night constantly.  the grados really are tuned for her!

Back to Opeth...

 

This is quickly becoming the best album I have heard in years.

 

But my Grado's pale in comparison to what my speaker rig is doing right now...

post #18117 of 18119

I wrote  bunch of stuff and junk about the PS1000 and RS1i on the Bakoon HPA-01 in the Bakoon thread. linking here for any Grado heads curious about the pairing (RS1 is fantastic. PS1000 can be fantastic or a little too bassy. tricky pairing)

Agreed on all counts. Blackwater Park was just exceptional in every sense-- I still think "Bleak" has one of my favorite guitar lines of all time. I'd add My Arms, Your Hearse to the list as well, as I love that album beyond my ability to convey it. (It was my first Opeth album, and I still think "When" is better than 99.99999999% of all music ever made.)

Very cool man, thanks! I've been curious about the Bakoon and the other current amps, looking forward to giving it a read!

 

Edit: Nice impressions. Interesting that you found the treble response to be roughly equal between the Bakoon and the Ear+. You mention that the Ear+ sounds "gooey;" do you find this to be the case across the entire spectrum, or specifically in the bass?
