does the graham slee have an option for pre-amp? the WA2 is a great pre amp. It would be interesting to hear the WA2 and Slee together if that was possible. 

 

The T1s work well with the Graham Slee, but the Grados (and I guess lots of other headphones, too) are where the Graham Slee really shines. See more on Graham Slee/Grado PS1000 partnership in this review. It makes for nice reading and is one of the reasons I chose the Graham Slee.

 

I noticed on the Woo Audio site here that the WA2 is recommended as an able partner with the Grado PS1000. Cooooool!

 

Not 100% sure if the Graham Slee and Woo could team up, but I would email Graham Slee and ask them closer to the event. There is a page on their site (see the 'features' tab here) that appears to indicate the amp can be fed off a pre-amp.

 

If we can make an event happen, this could be fun!

I contacted jack woo about the WA2/Grado pairing and he said that it was a typo on the site and apologised. How unfortunate we are.

sure bring them - people will want to hear portable as well besides there aren't many of us on the site so the more the merrier. I mean how many irish members have desktop setups? 3?

haha true. Well I'll be bringing the E17 regardless, it's essential travel companion

I'd be glad to hear stuff I can partner with my MP3 in the office or on the move to get better sound of it when partnered with the ACS T1s, so this kit is definitely good to bring. Cheers.

 

As regards the Woo ... bah! LOL. Not to worry. It'd still be good to compare a tube amp to the Graham Slee on some suitable phones. Graham's strap line for the amp is 'natural as a valve, solid as a rock'.

I really like them ... 90% of the time. For jazz and acoustic they are awesome with the vast majority of material. However, they actually sound bad for some music. For example, if I was forced to listen to a full song on the Grados for certain female vocalists, I think my ears would actually bleed. However, on the flip side, give them some jazz and my ears couldn't be happier.

 

The Grados are all about detail, an absolute abundance of it! However, it's done sympathetically, so your music is still very enjoyable. I could listen to them for hours at a time and have virtually no fatigue. They also have very good bass, both in terms of amount and detail. When Ray Brown gets into his double bass, man it's bliss on the Grados...

 

Don't get me started tongue.gif... suffice it to say they're pretty sweet... With your appetite now suitably whetted, let's hope this wee event of ours happens.

My WA2 and HD650 is the best i have heard for female vocals - they are amazing in the that category, there so smooth! The Hd650 compliments the T1 so well one being bright and the other being dark. the T1 is incredibly detailed!

Wow Mr.Sir you are bringing the big guns there! We have to get the meet going just so i can hear some of those electro static cans! 

Would you be willing to bring most of your gear?

I would also be interested in this if a suitable date/time could be arranged. I'm based in Dublin.

 

I could bring along - RSA P-51 Mustang, Hifiman RE-262 & RE-272, DT-770 Pro AE.
