I didn't buy these from an official seller, as they don't sell these in the netherlands(the red PP)

Red PP's nice!! :D they're bling everywhere haha

 

As for the Flat response and Balanced vs Dynamic stuff lets not forget they're using gadgets to test music not a human :P it's pretty lame to make your drivers more rigid and precise at the expense of limiting them and reaching new heights of euphoria >=] moar powerz!

amen to this !

and i'd add that this is a hobby, something that is supposed to bring us pleasure and take us away from the stress of daily life.

i catch myself occasionally taking ,audio, equipment , and myself too seriously, when i do that, i'm not having fun, and i'm NOT listening

to the music, i'm listening to the equipment

Repairing your cable is easy. Want me to help you?

Nice choice...I've upgraded the amp for my T1s to some Meier gear (excellent SS performance, btw), but my trusty Little Dot I+ is still my dedicated Grado amp. I've used it with all my Grados (325s, 500s, GS1ks, and even the 80s just for fun) and it just sounds fantastic with them. I upgraded to some Telefunken tubes, which I much preferred to the stock ones.

Let me know your impressions after you spend some time. I agonized between the Asgard 2 and the Little dot 1+ for my 225i. Eventually, I went w the A-2 because I'm also thinking...just thinking of getting the HE500 as a second HP flavor and ultimately decided the A-2 would give me additional versatility. But, I know a lot of posters love the LD w/ the Grados.....

post #7813 of 26891

after a few hours of listening to music with the the little dot 1+, i'm very ,very happy i got it.

i've listened mostly with my 225, the ms1 a little. the sound of the little dot is noticeably better to my

ears than my g3. more air, less grain,more detail,  liquid. bass is more substantial.

i'm not sure, but it seems the LD makes a bigger improvement to the ms1 than the 225.

the fit and finish and build quality are superb for the price, i'm very impressed, and when i think

how much i paid for it off the FS forum here, just makes it that much better !

anyone want a g3 ?? lol

the reason i didn't go for the LD initially was i wanted more flexibilty, i looked at the asgard 2 also

it was a little more than i wanted to spend so i got the fiio e09k, which i love

i have its pre outs going to my a2's, and the line out feeds the little dot.

with this set up, i can listen to speakers, a solid state head amp, and a tube head amp

and not have to move a thing and, the price of the two together was less than the asgard 2.

all in all, very happy with the set up now, i may rethink about selling the 225, i still want the

325 or ms2, but, i may wait,hmmmmmmmm

Just purchased a LD1+Hybrid upgraded with 2 (NOS) German Siemens 6AK5W tubes + tube guards from eBay (NIB) for 165$ U.S. with shipping. I was just about to purchase a Schiit Magni/Modi combo + one 6'' RCA cable and one 8' RCA cable and wall wart for 160$ U.S. from another Head-fier, but someone else sent a PM before me and it was gone!

After reading numerous posts about the LD's and Schiit's, I was torn between them, but all post's seem to point to the LD, especially for the Grado's, so in a way I guess it was meant to be.

Everybody seems to love the LD with the Grado's, and I can't wait to try my 325is's with it, also have 80i's and can't wait to hear them with the LD also.

Should be here between 7/03-08, can't wait, I hope I'm very impressed.

(jaywillin), glad to hear you are enjoying your LD like everyone else says.

Joseph, I think you made a great decision on the tubes, man. I've had Siemens tubes suggested to me countless times. I'd be really surprised if you didnt' like the LD amp with your 325s. When I bought mine, all I had at the time were my Grado 80s and the 325s, so I have spent quite a bit of time with that combo. This may be why I've never found the 325s to be too bright, as I know has been an issue for others. The LD never allows them to become harsh or shrilly. I think you'll really like this combination a lot, especially for the money. And in the event it ends up not being your cup of tea (honestly, I'd be really surprised if that was the case), LD is a very popular company on head-fi and you'll have plenty of buyers for it. As for mine, I've had it for a year and it's going to stay with me for its lifetime. When you find some tubes you like for it (the stock tubes aren't terrible, but the amp hits significantly higher than its price point with an upgrade), it's just a fantastic match for Grados. Congrats!
