Oh I'm quite satisfied with my current player (I have a JVC that I spent a few years to find). I had a Sony ES a while ago though - it wasn't bad sounding, but I certainly wasn't in love with it.

I think I'll be happy with mine for a while. My money's going to the most important of my setup: the music.

Does the Onkyo take digital or analog inputs? (I've seen this on newer CD players recently).

Love hearing that! I really think some folks get so caught up in the gear that they forget the whole point of why we buy it :)

I should have mentioned that I use the Sony as a transport to Meridian 203dac, but also without the dac I've been using Sony's 77/701 for close to 30 year's now and may be very use to their sound, also as to compared to cheaper and newer (more expensive) Sony model's.

The only Sony CD player that I've ever really gotten pumped up about is the SPCH-1001 (the so-called "Audiophile PlayStation"), and I prefer my current JVC to that as well. This isn't to say the ES components are bad - I just have never gotten really amped up about them I guess. I know it's unrelated to audio directly, but you'd have to pry my Sony VCR and DVD player from my kung-fu grip (I actually almost got my hands on an R1000 a few years ago, but it had some problems so I had to let it go; just seeing the thing was pretty awesome though).

Having said all of this - I tend not to notice very large differences between players in general, so my comments should be taken with an extreme dose of moderation.

Nope, no inputs. There are only digital and analogue outputs on it.

Count me in i just finished listening to a $1 LP of Andy Williams on my old Yamaha YP-D6 that has a $50 AT95e cart on it, and all things considered, it sounded very nice.

Well I received this morning my PS500s and I have been listening quite a bit today.  I am very, very impressed with these.  Some of the best sound I have heard on headphones period.  Right up there with the LCD-3s I fell in love with at the RMAF Can Jam.

 

They have an incredible amount of resolution but in a musical way.  The highs seem much smoother than my RS-1is.

 

I will do a comparo with the RS-1i in a few days as I get more break-in time on them.  But I am confident I have found my long term references.

Please do a comparison with your RS-1i's using acoustic classical piano paying close attention to the range below middle C.

I'm interested in difference between PS500 and HF2, anyone have compared it?

post #6075 of 17152

I've owned the ps and 2 sets of hf. the hf's are: a little looser and messier in the bass, but not as unaturally bass prominent (humped), have smoother richer midrange and maybe a little mellower treble. The ps has a big bass hump, somewhat more clinical midrange and treble. Overall that was my impression of the ps/ a little clinical and dry sounding. the hf had a better overall vibe that was richer and warmer while still having that same new grado sound signature of smooth natural upper mids and treble (compared to traditional grado's upper mid treble which is peaky). I enjoyed the Hf's but didn't warm up to the ps although it's a decent phone compared to alot of unatural sounding junk out there. It's still grado'y
