    Just about the Grado 325i

    I bought a pair of 325i's about three weeks ago, and have listened to them direct from a Sony DVP-S7000 DVD/CD player, and through a Millett Maxed tube headphone amp. They are great sounding headphones, with a nice balance. I don't find the highs to be overpowering or shrill, and the midrange is...

    Need headphone capability - what are my options

    My current system consists of a CEC CD player, Bottlehead Foreplay preamp, a pair of Wright 2A3 SET amps, and Pi speakers. None of the components have a headphone jack, so I'm trying to decide on the best and most economical path to headphone capability. The logical approach seem to be either...
