There is enough bass for me!

 

Grados are only 'bass-light' if you listen to music with a lot of sub-bass. For the kind of bass on an album like Future Days, a Grado works very well - it sounds fast, punchy and very musical.

Wow, what a great thread. I'm glad I've stumbled onto it as I have a ps500 purchase pending.

 

Most of this is music (Artists) I've never heard before and it will be fun to try it out. However, does anyone have any good punk, hard rock, ska, hardcore, metalcore music to recommend that will sound fab with my new Grados??

 

Thanks for any input

Earth, Wind and Fire Greatest HIts -  My SR80 gives these hits some justice!  I just love getting slammed by the kick drum at Lets Groove

The new Opeth sounds great on my 225e

Feist - The Reminder

Tallis Scholars - The Best of the Renaissance

Kate Bush - Hounds of Love. The Sensual Word, Aerial

Television - Marquee Moon

Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde

Eddie Harris - The Electrifying Eddie Harris

Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me

Sarah McLachlan - Afterglow

The Cocteau Twins - Victorialand

Yazoo - Upstairs at Eric's

This Mortal Coil - It'll End in Tears

Sonic Youth - A Thousand Leaves.

Saint Etienne - Finisterre

 

Edit - how could I forget

 

Funkadelic - Maggot Brain (especially title track)

Iron Butterfly - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Orb - Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld

Michael Nyman - Nyman Brass (or any of the soundtracks from Peter Greenaway's films).

The Blue Nile - Hats, A Walk Across the Rooftops

 

PS The Blue Nile above albums were on Linn Records, as in the same Linn that makes the nice kit. Hats I think is one of the most beautifully mastered albums I've ever, ever heard, if not the best. The dynamics and clarity are amazing without sacrificing any atmosphere and yet Paul Buchanan's emotional vocals cut right to the core. Sophistipop might not appeal to you but the sounds are beautiful.

 

Anyone remember Mark Radcliffe's "Out On Blue Six" on R1 many years ago? Alongside the late Mr J. Peel introduced me to much of the music I now love.

 

Background - I had some SR60s a few years ago, got damaged in a house move 3 years ago. On Monday I'm getting the SR225e for my 40th!!!

YamaVega:

 

The Selecter? Have a few in FLAC from them that sounded great. In fact anything minimal and tight will really show off the Grado strengths.

 

Hard rock I can't really help. I used to listen to Iron Maiden as a teenager but stupidly threw away all my CDs when I met an indie girl at 17. I'd like to try a few of their tracks as the albums were always well produced whatever you think of the genre.

 

Maybe NIN and Faith No More would work really well too (god I have to listen to FNM again right now!!)

Haha ... used to listen to Mark & Lard's latenight show on Radio 1 ("the graveyard shift") when I was revising for my A levels ...

 

Some good choices there! Just dug out A Thousand Leaves, not listened in years ... Karen Koltrane sounds pretty good through my MS1s ...
