    Graham Slee Novo vs. 4 other solid state amps

    Hi Zuqi, as far as I remember (been a while now), the novo worked fine with Grados (as does the solo btw). And I even think that Graham specifically designed the novo for use with low impedance phones in mind.

    Frank Bridge and Benjamin Britten also composed wonderful music for the viola.

    How do ms2i and sr225 compare?

    Just like Nickchen I've had some SR-225s on loan now for some time and thus had the opportunity to compare them to some headphiled SR-225s, my HF-1 and my MS-2i. I also was quite disappointed by the stock 225s which indeed sounded sort of muddy even in comparison to the headphiled 225 - though...

    ATH-W1000 bad isolation ?

    For closed cans both, the W1000 and the A900 do not isolate that much. Unless you play your music really loud other people won't hear it - but you'd be able to still hear the others, in contrast to, say, closed Ultrasones or HD25.

    Heed CanAmp

    As I just received the Heed I bought from Minivan, and someone in another thread on HeadFi asked for a short comparison with the Lehmann black cube linear, which is the amp I do usually use, I thought I might just as well post my findings here as well: So, after a first listening session with...
