Here's how I avoid spending lavish amounts of money buying higher end Grados, by spending lavish amounts of money on lower end Grados.
Poor man's GS-1000i.
I think I'll take a chance and double post on the 325i thread. Perhaps I'll incur the wrath of the mighty moderators.
I think after buying all that "bling" you've spent as much on your SR-325i as it would cost to buy the GS-1000i. In fact, a GS-1000 was just sold about a week ago for about $590 + shipping. They shure look purdy, though.
Edit: SR-325i ($299), Wooden Cups ($150 - Est.), Silver / Aluminum Gimbals ($150), Manta Leather Headband ($45), G-Cush ear pads ($45). Total: $689.00.
You're absolutely right. Hence, making fun of myself. Wooden rod stops? Then I would be headed toward PS1K territory. Think I'll quit that chase.
Edit: Martin Custom Audio did the cups/rods.
