Holy crap lol... Honestly, even though there's always bigger and better to be had, I think you'll find that the LD is a great match with any Grado up to the GS1k. I think if I ever jumped to the PS1k I'd try a higher end amp, but my LD makes all my Grados sound fantastic. I have zero desire to spend money on anything higher end. I've been spendign most of my time lately with my T1s since i got them a new amp to play with, so when I fired up my PS500s last night on the LD it really put a smile on my face. It's amazing how good of a rig you could put together with some Grados, the LD, and an inexpensive DAC...just awesome.

 hell yeah !  i'm replacing the little e10 with a microstreamer, it'll be my "keeper"/ traveling dac

i may get another just for the desktop, the new v90 from musical fidelity looks interesting

or maybe the music streamer ii+ , not sure yet

Very cool...I'd like to get a pair of Alessandros at some point just to see the differences. I've heard great things about the microsteamer...until recently I've been using an AudioEngine D1 with my main rig...I just upgraded it, but I have no plans to get rid of it...I'm going to use it more for it's natural purpose as a usb dac on my laptop. I love how many inexpensive options there are out there...I always tell my friends it's a great time to get into this side of the hobby. The value out there is off the charts, with the Little Dot amp being among the most incredible values. On top of that, the customer service is fantastic. I've exchanged several emails with David, and he's a great guy to deal with. I felt very comfortable purchsing from him. Which tubes are you using to start with?

Yeah...I might need to give one of these little guys a try at some point.  Along with various micro-streamers and other assorted goodies I keep reading about.  It will be cheaper to optimize my Grado's than chasing amps for my HE-5LE's at any rate.

The HRT products are excellent value and, like our Grados, made in the USA!

My iStreamer is brilliant and Kevin answers any and all questions with incredible patience.

It's a surprisingly clean sounding amp...the background is dead quiet on mine and it just gives the Grados a nice full bodied sound.

Already received the LD1+ the other day, excellent amp. I wanted to also hear the Schiit Magni/Modi combo, so I'm in the middle of ordering them right now but need to know something:

I believe I need a high speed USB cable from the modi to my (2013-13" MBP), is this correct? If yes,

Do I need a high speed USB (2.0) cable, or can I order a high speed USB (3.0) for the( 2013-13" MBP)?

Thanks.
