The Grado fan page on head-fi has been abuzz about the E series for a week or two now. For anyone interested:

You might have to go a couple pages back.

A few people (myself included) who have ordered Grados in the last couple months have been getting the revised versions. I noticed the red drivers as soon as I opened the box, though it didn't seem like anyone on here had any idea (at the time) why/if there had been a running change in production. It's interesting to see that there's been a couple changes in driver size in some of the higher-end models -- I can't help but wonder what facilitated this change, and I would really like to A/B them against their older 'i' counterparts.

You can always come for a few hours if you don't have to go into work until the afternoon.  :)

I got a red driver version of the 325, and noticed it sounded slightly different compared to some of the older models I demoed.

Btw, does anyone have a Schiit Vali?

Yep and I will be bringing it.

I may bring my Vali as well.

Ishcabible is listed as bringing the PM2 headphone - is that a pre-release model or a typo?  Been wanting to try those.

 

 

I didn't see this. I've been talking to Oppo and they were slated to send me one when they were released. Back then they expected "June" but it's been delayed so unfortunately I won't have it.

Going by your sig, be forewarned -- the Vali is hissy with Grados (up to about 150ohm, there's an audible noise floor). Depeding on your tolerance to it and the type of music you like, it may or may not be a dealbreaker. Personally, I don't mind it 99% of the time.

Maybe I missed it, but is there going to be a "for sale" table where we can bring gear we want to sell?

Thanks, I'll be mindful of that. I usually listen fairly quietly and I'm not normally a fan of tubes, but Schiit themselves said they preferred Tubes with Grados, so I figured I'd check it out!

Space will most likely be at a premium so I don't think we'll have extra tables.  Depending on the weather, there are tables right outside :)

If space is going to be that tight, I'm not going to bother with the PC and monitor. I'll probably just do a rMBP, then.
