    Grado Fan Club!

    Nice! Thank you Carbonboy. I like the grado retro look so this works for me. Maybe a laser cutter could add the Grado Hemp Name. Blank canvas.

    I don’t mind the reference, but in the office it might not fly. I want that clean rs2x look with the hemp bass.

    My Shure SE846 suck!?

    I thought that they can be tuned. Which filter do you have on them now? I am also curious about where you bought them from?

    MacBook Pro 2016

    My mind has been blown by the sound out of this laptop's headphone jack. Someone explain this to me. I am enjoying the sound out of my Grado sr325i's so much that I am parting ways with a lot of gear, the game has been moved on for me. Bass, noise floor, details and separation are all here for...

    #3501 liking them -Comfort with bowl dealt with by stretching them out. -Clarity and presentation can be harsh and is dealt with by lowering the volume.

    DAC/AMP for AudioEngine A5

    I vote for the A5's. I think that starting off with the better set of speakers would be the route that I would take in your position.

    Non-audiophile reactions to high-end headphones

    I love my headphones they help me focus and escape. but the reason that I believe others don't value them as much as we do is because they are reclusive in nature. you can't do this as a social activity and doesn't get you a woman's attention. at least that is what I think... Social status is...

    Which DAC choose ?

    Okay, I wasn't impressed once I brought the new rig home (V-Dac to V-Can to Grado SR325is). It seemed to have too strong of a bass emphasis, to the point of clipping, to say that I was disappointed would be an understatement. I knew that it wasn't the volume because it happened at all levels...

    Speaker positioning tips (pic)

    When I hear these they disappear. The image is clear and when I close my eyes and have the right music its like it is happening live. Guitars, Drums and vocalist all have their place around me on the stage. My speaker placement is ideal as the form a small equilateral triangle. to me this...

    Which DAC choose ?

    I finally settled on the V-DAC yesterday because of all the recommendations, it hopefully arrives tomorrow. I haven't heard it but I will  add to the forum my findings after I get a chance to test it.

    DAC/AMP for AudioEngine A5

    might I suggest that you run them out of the laptop? I have an old  MacBook Pro and I am constantly surprised by the level of sound these speakers put out. If not I heard the Pro-ject usb box and found it pretty sweet
