I bought my RP3 for my headphone set up to enter in the world of vinyl and what a buy! Overall the rega is a very sensitive Turntable however, it awes me everytime I plug it in a play.

Which albums sound best with your Grado? - Page 18post #256 of 27311/9/12 at 11:22pm

Marantz's High-end Audiophile Test Demo SACD - 15th Edition sounds great with Grado's. I bought it for my home theater use but when I was browsing the album's booklet, I read that the 225i's were used in recording the album. So, I tried listening to it with my Grado's and it sounds fantastic! I highly recommend it especially to those who want great tracks to demo their Grado's (also your stereo and home theater systems) to friends and family.
You can find the track list here.post #262 of 2736/10/13 at 5:36ampost #263 of 2736/10/13 at 11:50pm
After seeing and reading through this thread I decided (because I have a number of their albums) to listen to all of my Led Zeppelin collection again. Wow, I don't know if its my new amp or my new SR325is phones but I have never heard them sound any where near this good before...just fantastic!! These are all the original versions, makes me want to get some remastered versions of my favorites just to see if they are even better.post #264 of 2736/15/13 at 2:32pmQuote:
I was listening to Tago Mago by Can on my PS500's the other week. Jaki Leibezeit's drums are amazing on that album and the PS500 is a great headphone for percussion.post #265 of 2736/16/13 at 12:50amQuote:
Great, great album ... Leibezeit is the best drummer no-one's ever heard ofpost #266 of 2736/16/13 at 4:24am
I have just recently bought all of the remastered Cheap Trick cd's that I could find off of e-bay.
I must say that the very first Cheap Trick cd is what rock legends are made from!!!!post #267 of 2739/24/13 at 9:20pmpost #268 of 2739/24/13 at 9:44pm
I love all Rock on Grado's but....I love Grados for what they do for:
The Cake-Comfort Eagle
Led Zeppelin (I thru IV)
Elton John (early recordings)
Niel Young & Crazy Horse (all)

I couldn't agree more. The thing about this recording is it is such a true performance. She is out there on that stage, a bit nervous, a bit hoarse, and singing her heart out. Wonderful listen!
Jethro Tull - Aqualung
I won't gush about Paper Airplane, thats been done
Rickie Lee Jones - Traffic From Paradise
Cara Dilon - Live at the Grand Opera House
Lyle Lovett - Joshua Judges Ruth
George Harrison - All Things Must Pass
