post #8311 of 24607

So far, i like what i'm hearing with the stock tubes on my Little Dot +1, it makes my Yamaha DVD-S1800 sound at least as good as my more than twice as expensive, DVD-S2700.

 

In the last two days, i have tryed my HP and PS1000 with the little Dot, and with the PS1000 it could swear i was hearing detail that i had never heard before, even with my X-CAN V2 and DVD-S2700.

 

I see the Little Dot +1 as the SR80i of headphone amps.

regarding the ms2, no as to the warranty, i bought used, (i did know about this) it hadn't slipped out until this weekend, and now it doesn't want to stay put ! lol

i first instinct was just super glue it, but then i thought it would be my luck that i'd glue it, something bad happen, and then find out that super glue was the last thing

i should have done , so i thought i'd just put it out there .

really enjoyed the pics joseph !!

i think possibly one consensus would be, all three of the amps in question offer good quality , and offer great value, "if you like it, its good" !!
 

I think that sums up why I like the Grado's so much.  Usually, I'm an objective science guy when it comes to audio.  But the Grado voicing seems to work quite well with my personal frequency response curve.  It's one of the few times where "if it sounds good, it is" actually works for me.  The fact that amps work the same way is a bonus, although with amps I am definitely of the "straight wire with gain" camp regarding effect on the actually sound signature.  I want NONE from the amp in most cases.  Headphones could be a different matter.

 

Gawd, next thing you know I'll try tubes, and then reality as we know it crumbles!

Thank you. If you already don't have a hot glue gun, go and purchase one and use the hot glue, in the event the rod block has to come off again, you can heat up the hot glue again with a blow drier and it will come off nicely. I wouldn't use super glue, you'll never get it off again.

it just so happens, we have a glue gun , (two "crafty" females inhouse) , of course, living in alabama , i had to fight the urge to grad the duct tape !

Please, no duct tape, they don't deserve that, LOL.

The hot glue is actually what they use to hold the drivers in the cups, when I switched my 325 drivers to the MS2i cups, I used hot glue, which is what was originally used by Grado.

For some reason the question just entered my mind whether Jeff Foxworthy likes Grados

Figured this was as good a place as any to ask.
Anyone know how much a grado hp2 is going for on the used market these days?
