Congratulations on the new DAC…but what's a "geek out??? confused_face_2.gif

I went for the much more budget friendly (vs NAD M51, Bryston dac)Meier Daccord. I only get to really listen at home once a week, so thought it would be better for me to go this route. . for now smily_headphones1.gif

The Light Harmonic Geek Out is a usb stick dac amp. They (LH Labs) been creating quite a stir as far as I know. Not always for the right reasons.... :/

Thanks, I realized that after my jaw/temples were in pain. Only thing is you are limited to how much you can spread the spring steel because of the soft headband..but the clamping force is much less now that I don't even feel it. ;)

Check it out. It's up in the classifieds. Check my signature.

The comparisons continue... The 400i's are very Grado-esque. I'm reminded of the MS1 or MS2. Dynamic bass (although the 400i goes much deeper), mids that are in line, not too forward and not pulled back, and very detailed crispy treble. Obviously they outclass the MS1, but just to give you an idea of the type of sound I'm talking about, that's what came to mind. They don't quite measure up their older sibling, but they ain't no slouch either. Will provide in depth analysis later.

It's been around for ten weeks, but in case you haven't seen it, here is Steve Guttenberg's photo sequence showing the construction of a Grado SR60e headphone at the Grado factory in Brooklyn. I just now stumbled upon it.

Hi All,

I have a full Home Theatre and 2 Channel set-up but a new addition to the family means no more loud music! So started my head fi journey.  Did some research and found this forum which is frankly, FANTASTIC and I have to thank you guys for introducing me to the world of Grado! Visited some dedicated head fi stores and stumbled across the the Grado SR60i.  It took all of 2 tracks for me to fall so completely in love with the audio signature! Tried all kinds of closed back headphones, some costing 5 times as much but the little Grados sound so open and clear!  Somehow over the next month or so I managed to score a pair of original SR125's for a very good price! What a fantastic bit of kit! Yes they are a bit cumbersome and leak sound in and out but dang it they sound good!  I ended up buying some Xiaomi piston 2.1 IEM's and a Fiio X5 dap based on feedback from this forum as well.  Next steps for me is to buy a pair of closed on ears for travel (highly interested in the Thinksound On1) and start modding the Grado. Excited!

Ok, there's the bare driver, now I know where the "red" dots are coming from. Thought I got a freaky RS1i...whew..:)
