Mods do delete posts but only if they are needing to be gone for good reason.

Maybe they are worried that the Grado repair service would run out of business.tongue.gif

Looks like a good job.

Did you use a hot glue gun?

The (rod block) is connected to the headband, them the gimbal goes through the rod block.

Now you will never have to worry about it ever coming off again.

BTW, I'm listening to my325's with the LD with the Modi from the MBP, and sounds like the tubes may be burning in, I'm hearing cleaner, tighter, solid bass with more detail a nice clearer warmer sound all around, and these are the Siemens 6AK5W's. I'm still waiting for the Voskhods, I may just keep both the LD and the Magni.

Nice, I would like to ask IYO, are the Voskhod 6J1P-EV a more forward, upfront, brighter more detailed sounding tube than the Siemens 6AK5W?

Also the Voskhod is a direct plug in (native), with no strapping, correct? Thanks.

i like having both a tube and a solid state amp, and with the little dot, with the option of tube rolling, its easy to have a fresh sound when you want

NOS tubes can benefit from burning in

ive got some 408a's, some hp and erricson 6ak5's, rca 6be6's some mullard  ef91's, (6am6) are on the way

i've also got an indeed g3, i'm using some 12au7's in it, my favorite there is an rca clear top

the voskhod's are drop in, i may get a pair of those too, gonna see how you like them first lol

Will let you know how I like them after I receive them, and they burn in. I read they are supposed to be a brighter more forward sounding tube, so I can't wait to try them.

They are directly plug n play... They are different then the siemens tubes... More bass, bigger sound stage, seems like they have more detail but they don't have that crispy crunchy lower treble like the siemens tubes do. I feel like the the voskhod has more detail, is warmer and less airy. I like it for most types of music. The siemens tubes I prefer for older rock/punk/metal recording because it accentuates the crunch of electric guitar.

I had thought I read they where a more forward crisper sounding tube, that was the reason I purchased them, especially for my 325's. Maybe I'll like them with my 80's, just have to wait and hear them. Thanks for your thoughts on the sound of these tubes, I appreciate it.
