It's the electrolytic caps specifically.

Yes, we've established that it was due to a design flaw.

 

The original Moth 2A3 design was changed in subsequent versions, and those who had the original could get it modded by having the rectifier moved to outside the chassis. For whatever reason the owner of this unit didn't get it modded, and reading his posts he never really seemed to have any issues, so I suppose he never felt the need to do it. Craig no longer has the metal punch needed to mod the 2A3 chassis directly, and rather than mess around with it, using the BA's power supply chassis instead seems like a much better alternative.

That makes more sense, thanks MF.

 

I just got my Paradox from USPS but I can't listen to them right now because I'm waiting for UPS who are bringing my HD800's back.  Missing the doorbell would be a pain.

Does the Chateau Landon come with the amp?

X2. I persuaded a coworker to get one after I saw kiteki rave about them.

The 07's improvements weren't worth twice the money...then again, nothing in this hobby is.

So in the end I really should try the R04 first and decide whether or not the R07 mk2 is worth twice the price of the former? How different is it?

Can't talk, I have to warm up my HE-6's amp for the day's listening. It's a custom build designed specifically to meet the HE-6's power demands, and it often causes neighborhood brownouts.

Has anyone here tried the GR07 bass edition? I'm real curious.

I had the chance but I was really pressed for time the last time and just stuck with the mkii. I've been talking to someone who has had all GR07 iterations - from one with the hard case to the revised one with lots of tips and a soft case to bass and mkii. He said the bass edition is basically the GR07 with a bumped up midbass, and apparently that "bleeds into the mids". He told me to just stick to the mkii if I like the original GR07's sound and wanted a more refined treble.

Good Greef man - What is that thing you got over there.

Grado is teaming up with Dolce Gabbana to offer some limited edition mahogany headphones. They look like re-badged GS1000 to me, but I'm curious if they've been tuned any differently.

 

 

Grado & Dolce Gabbana DS2012

 

 

700

 

 

700

 

 

MSRP: Around 1200 USD

 

 

 

The PS1000 is a fairly nice headphone despite its flaws, and for a while the GS1000 intrigued me as it was supposedly more airy both sonically and in terms of its lighter physical weight. Ultimately I stayed away from them however due to reports of their sibilance. If the DS2012 is tamed somewhat in comparison, then I'd be more interested in giving it an audition.

 

Still, as far as fashion headphones go, this doesn't really annoy me. I'm not feeling any self-righteous nerd rage or anything of that nature. If they can enkindle some interest in audio equipment, especially among women, I think that's actually pretty cool.

 

 

1000
