First post on these fine boards!
Been lurking around for a few weeks and have since auditioned a set of SR80's and RS-2's at my local shop.
Love them both but unfortunately the 80's are the only set within my price-range at the moment.
That being said...
The SR125's are also in my price range! I'll be trying those out at my local shop really soon.
My question to you can-junkies is which would be a better fit for my application?
Some info for ya:
1. My primary plug-in on the go is going to be straight into my ipod since the SR80's sounded great as is.
(don't worry I have great source files!)
2. I'd also like to invest in an amp for home use to bring out more details and such.
3. In the future I think I'll be making some Mahogany cups and re-cabling as well.
Here in Canada the SR80's retail 148$ and the SR125's for 188$
Anyway, I'm leaning toward the SR125's because the price difference is so small and I've heard good things.
Can they be adequately powered by an ipod though?
All thoughts welcome!
