    RA1

    SF Bay Area Meet in Marin -- Saturday, October 14, 2006

    I know I had the left and right correct because I had to ask where the markings where. I didn't make any adjustments or even know how too. It was comfortable but it almost seemed like the top part of the cups were pushing out just a bit. I was listening to some Portishead and it sounded just...

    SF Bay Area Meet in Marin -- Saturday, October 14, 2006

    I want to thank Grahame and Voltron for the great event. I didn't really socialize too much expect with the very few people I already knew. I also forgot to look at the nametags to see who everyone was. I spent most of my time comparing my PS-1 with the RS-1, HP-1/2, and GS1000. I definately...

    GS1000 First impressions

    Quote: Originally Posted by Audiofiler I think the GS along with the PS are the only true high end phones(for Grado) that require as much attention to detail on the front end of ones' system. Don't agree that the PS-1's have this problem. The PS-1 sound great out of everything...

    GS1000 First impressions

    My problem with the GS1000 besides the system problems I had, is I thought it would be an upgrade to the RS-1. This was the new official top of the line Grado headphone. I loved the RS-1 and thought the GS1000 would be better. Basically I thought it would be the RS-1 with soundstage. At...

    SF Bay Area Meet in Marin -- Saturday, October 14, 2006

    I can borrow my wife's ety ER-4P/S for the day. I can also bring my Grado SR-60. I also have a pair of ue10's but I don't think anyone would get a good fit. I can bring it if people just want to see what they look like in person. I'm still debating whether or not to bring my Audio Mirror DAC2...

    Ipod remotes

    Not sure if or when it is now coming out at this point, but looks interesting. LINK MORE INFO For a car, one of the intergrated stereo seems like the best solution.

    GRADO PS1 received. holy cow!!!

    Well, I'm still enjoying my PS-1, now even more with the Mapletree. The vocals are now so damn smooth. There's a Clash song, "Lost This Skin" that always had somewhat harsh vocals that were difficult to understand, now it seems like you can really hear what the vocals are supposed to sound like...

    The ORIGINAL Star Wars comes to DVD

    I'm still using a regular 27" tv so the Original version (rented from Netflix) looks great in letterbox form. The picture quality is much better than I though it would be and is much more enjoyable without the CGI crap. The sound is not bad either but it's not surround but neither was the...
