Hi fellow Grado Addicts.

Has anyone used the LD MK IV with any Grado's? (or any easier to drive 'phones in general)

 

i find my 225's so addictive for metal/rock... i like them for a lot of EDM as well.

stuff like cosmic gate... goes really well :)

I think Focker uses an LD with his Grados.

I can agree with the EDM bit on Grados irregardless though - I tend to listen to a lot of that on the RS-1, and enjoyed it on the 225 when I had them.

Would balancing the RS1s have any real benefit to them?  I'm thinking about recabling mine, wondering if balancing is a worthwhile option.

I'm guessing not, based on what I remember of the topic from years ago. They don't need more voltage.

Yeah I remember people talking about it ways back.  Thanks.

First post!

Got my first pair of Grados this past weekend! SR125i's, they are the most amazing headphones I have ever used. I then stumbled onto this amazing place, it's been a great week so far!

Welcome to Head-Fi, glad to see you're enjoying your 125s, Grados tend to be very addictive if you like their sound signature.

 

Happy listening

Great choice! You'll get many, many hours of enjoyment out of those. Glad to have you in our thread!

I'm going to try and find some ELO CDs over my winter break, I'm tired of having to youtube them. Any suggestions besides Out of the Blue, Eldorado, and their first album?

You will for certain also need to get "New World Record" and Face the Music" maybe also get "On The Third Day " with the three you already mentioned. Forget about anything released after "Out of the Blue".. It's all going downhill from there :-)

Congrats! And in advance, sorry for your wallet smily_headphones1.gif

Hope you have a good amp to power those! Grados become something else after powering them with an Amp smily_headphones1.gif I enjoy my Grado RS1i with The Continental V2 atm smily_headphones1.gif

Also, I'm looking for a PS1000, anyone know a Grado dealer in the LA area? XD

I have had my SR225i for a few weeks now and so far I couldn't be happier. As said earlier, I only listened SR325is before trying these ones, and I have previously tested old SR80 and newer SR125i.

I hope that I never get so curious that I go and try wooden models...

One of the biggest reasons why I love grados is because they are just like Magnepan speakers in that even the lowest speaker/headphone in the line gives you a taste of what makes the more expensive models so great. As you go up the line you get more of a great thing, just with more refinement, etc. Although the 500s and the GS1ks are my favorite Grados, the 80s will always be the reason why I fell in love with the sound.

Hey!

Wasn't someone in this thread recently considering picking up a deck and setting up an analog rig? What happened with that?

Probably lots of people. tongue.gif

I mentioned wanting to dig out my TT, I got it out of the box, and realized it was bigger than I remembered it being, so back in the box it went. redface.gif I also wish I had a reason to use my AKAI, as it is decidedly the most dapper looking audio component I've ever seen, but I'm always reminded that it plays TAPES and nothing else. frown.gif
