Grado rs-1 / JVC Victor hp-dx-700 - Project Sunrise II F/S or F/T For Amp
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Hi guys, I have two different headphones to sell as I have finally had the privilege to upgrade to the Fostex th900. Both are used, but like all of you, I keep my stuff in top condition, or at least the condition i got them in. I also have Project Sunrise II for sale as I can't use it due to health reasons (see below).
Frankly, I'd trade both for a nice amp for my Fostex th900. I'd prefer tube, but if it's SS and it is known to go well with the fostex, i won't turn it away. but if I don't get any good offers, I will sell them separately.
The first is the JVC Victor HP-dx 700. Originally, I got this on this forum, but I have used them little because, frankly, they are too big and bulky for my little head (lol). They have a small blemish on the right wooden ear cup, and they have a high quality replacement cable that ends in a 4-pin XLR. I have some electrical tape on the place the cable goes into the XLR plug to give some added strength, but you can remove it if you like. I will also include the XLR-> 1/4 inch adapter, of course. Also, in addition to the original pads, I will provide the angeles audeze pads which make the headphones sounds 2x better. The original pads are unused. They have been used somewhere around 150-200 hours, so they are broken in. They sound great with a nice tube amp, but I'd recommend a larger head to go with them. Haha.
Second, I have a pair of original Grado rs-1, mark 1. These are the rs-1 with the little wooden dot in the middle that says RS-1. These are great phones, but they are open, and that is a no-no with my fiancee. So that means bubye for them. Pads are a little worn, but they are cheap to replace, plus I will include yellow "quarter modded" pads that have never been used at all. I cut the quarter holes myself, by the way, as you can see in the pics. These are probably in the neighborhood of 75-125 hours. They are in mint condition, with 1/4 jack on the end. I have the original box, and I do mean original. The cardboard has probably faded by now, and it only included the headphones themselves. You are welcome to it, but you don't have to take it if you don't want.
Thirdly, I have Project Sunrise II amp, solder by me, that has been used for maybe 25 hours. For some reason, every time I use the thing, I get nauseous. I know, it sounds impossible, but I've tested it thoroughly. For some reason whatever frequency it is producing really makes me sick. LOL Weird, I know. But my weirdness is your gain. I will include a really nice tube with the amp too, besides the electro harmonic it cakes with I will throw in a CCA Telefunken. That's a 200 dollar tube, used for less than an hour.
Price on the listing is just a quick estimate. I will just say for people to make me offers. Some pics are below but i can send whatever is needed.
I am Paypal Verified and will use whatever protections you like. Have dealt on these forums before a while ago, review might still be up. Am amenable to local pickup as well around Long Island, New York. International no problem, buyer pays shipping for everything, domestic and abroad.
Will also break up items for sale or trade as needed. Im flexible guys, just be reasonable.
Thanks guys, please let me know any questions.
