    Some OVERRATED High End Gear.

    Going back to the beginning of the thread.... I have to defend Bel Canto some. I own both the S300iu and DAC 2.5 and couldn't be happier. Of course its not the most uber-perfect rig that everyone thinks that theirs is, but it works for me. The S300iu runs a pair of paradigm studio 60s and love...

    Upgrading Grado SR80 cables

    I just recabled my sr80i with 22 ga. jumper wire from dh labs. Just braided it up, terminated, and installed. Sounds great too. For $30 bucks it was a great improvement, especially after 50 hours or so.

    Which bands are still recording analog?

    Cmon guys, you can't forget about the White Stripes. Jack White even does his own tube rolling in the studio.

    My mind is starting to melt.

    I would take a look at the PS Audio DL3 dac. Has USB, optical, and coaxial inputs. Upsamples to 96 and 192, fully balanced (even has xlr outputs), and even sounded better than a McIntosh dac used in a $150k 2 channel setup and that dac was $4k! I love mine. U can pick one up for $695.

    Ordered HD800/PS1000 // Interest in HD800/PS1000 // Wait and see

    My PS1000's will be in this week. I tend to love the grado house sound. I've owned the HD650's and 600's and sold them both.

    PS-1000 anyone?

    Mine will be in tomorrow. My local dealer had to constant be on their tail for them to ship for some reason.

    Any opinions on the Sony MDR-V700DJ?

    I own a set of V700DJs and would not recommend them unless you really like bass. personally I think the koss portapros would be a better choice for the money. Second of all, if you find a pair for 50 bucks they are used or a chinese knock-off.

    Organizing all that music. How?!?!

    I would highly recommend a program called Tune-Up companion. Its a iTunes add-on for 30 dollars. Load up the songs and it will search gracenote and update all of the id3 tags automatically. I then let iTunes organize my library. It's simple, painless and takes alot less time.

    Which one will it be: Sennheiser 650 or Beyerd 880 or AKG 702?

    Take a look at the line-up from Grado. The RS2i and up are very pleasing to listen to.

    gs1000 pads on rs-1

    I actually dont mind the sound. I have a set of SR325i's and I put the GS1K pads on them every once n a while just to get a variety of sound. I like treble as you can tell.
