I havent had an MAD headamp yet, but I can tell you that Dr.P is a great guy and very helpful if you shoot an email off to him. I bought my first tube preamp from MAD and it was an amazing experience. I often regret selling it cause it was a beautiful piece.

Here you go...simply the best Grado amp I've heard:

 

http://hollowstate.netfirms.com/

 

The MAD Ear+HD with stock tubes runs $760. But you'll want to upgrade the 12AX7/5751 stock Sovtek pretty quick. wink.gif

Thanks guy's for the info on the mapletree headphone amp, but I'll have to hold off for a while I  didn't realize it was that expensive!!!

Doe's anybody know if Grado replaced the SR325is (sparkle silver) with (black) ear cup's? I'm asking because there is a guy claiming to have a pair of 325is's with black ear cup's for sale on eBay. I know way back they made the ear cup's black, but they where not (is) model's.

Your Raptors played a great game and almost pulled it out P....beerchug.gif

 

I have tried a few on the Ear + HD but my favorite is the 7025 tube.  Smoooooth...

 

Cheers!!!

Almost! LoL, but I was busy watching the Leaf game tonight (we beat the Penguins 5-2). Oh well, at least we beat the Lakers over the weekend.

 

Love the photos! Great combo and one for the ages the RS1/EAR+HD!

 

The 7025 Sylvania is a fantastic tube too!

don't think so, black 325s sound like the old, very collectible version, with hp1000 drivers

Nice P...

OT in Miami with the Raptors. Great game. DWade with 35 and LBJ with a triple double. Jose was on fire for Toronto.

Indeed. Sylvania 7025 is what I have in the Ear+HD now. Sweeeet!

Cheers!!

my 2 fave Grado RS1 amps are the ECSS and GS-1.  Sadly both were discontinued long ago.

post #6177 of 24256

so is the old MAD Ear+ as good as MAD Ear + HD? Anybody know the difference? I only want it for Grados.

Thanks for the reply, it turns out the guy states they are black, but then states he meant the headband was black.

I thought maybe Grado changed the color of the cups. Thanks.

700

Black Metal Grado 325.

The very first edition from 1993, predating the first RS1.

John made very few black anodized cups before switching to silver.

Mine have pink drivers but some had HP1000 drivers.

 

700

The black metal cups are larger (deeper) than the plastic cups from the same year.

Same size as the early 325 and MS2 cups

Very nice, thanks for the pictures, I actually have Grado 325is driver's in Alessandro MS2i cup's because a Friend and I switched driver's for personal sound preferences, but I kept the MS2i cups because I liked them button less.

I may one day black powder coat the cup's, there really nice in black, I have the latest (sparkle silver) which is just OK looking IMO.
