Thanks Stacker. Its you basic high frequency and upper mid rolloff, that comes from over two decades of working with power tools without hearing protection. Once I get the equalization in the ballpark, sound quality is very good. The hard part is actually getting there--playing with the equalizer.
Anyway the RS-1 topped at $865. I took it up to the penultimate bid then got sniped. Would have went higher, but didn't think to give myself a cushion near the end. Actually kind of disappointed, although really surprised I gave it a go. First time I did that.
I didn't follow the eBay bid war. Which RS-1 was on auction again? Is it the vintage or the classic?
Is there a noticeable difference in sound between the Vintage and the Classic RS-1? Or it's more historical value of it?
