Unfortunately none I can think of - it's the 650 that sink you. IME they benefit from higher Zsource, and the warmth/bass that comes from that. But most of your OTLs won't like the 701 or Grados. OTC is expensive. And I don't like hybrids by and large. redface.gif

The Yamaha RX-770 (now called RX-797) is an example of one that can do all three quite nicely, but if you want a little desktop unit - I'm not sure what to tell you. There are some desktop amps like the FiiO E9 that would be competent enough for all, but I don't consider it perfection for the Sennheisers (they're the only reactive one of the bunch, so they *do* care).

How is that image remotely related to a VW Jetta?

I try to buy mostly American, German, and Canadian, but I'd have no problem sending David more money in the future. Very good buying experience. 

this. the tube warmness added to the grado sound is heartwarming

My RS1i will be w/ me in a day or two. I'm gonna drive it w/ a V200 amp, which is know to be slightly warm, great match to my HD800. I wonder if anyone is using it together w/ RS1i, and how do they match?

Hey all, new to the Grado Fan Club here. Don't own a pair yet, but I'm banking on getting a pair of the 225i's very soon. But my question is this: does anyone know of a website or a place where I can bargain for prices? For example, I'm looking to get three pairs of the 60i's for Christmas presents and was hoping I could find a deal where I could get all three for around 200-225. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Grado pretty heavily enforces it's MSRP - you could try buying them used, but authorized retailers generally won't drop their prices. That said, we're talking about $10-$15 here. C'mon...

The best deal you can likely make will be free shipping and no sales tax.

Or try to purchase them with another product you want and try to push the discount on the second product.
