    Why do people say the Benchmark DAC1 is "fatiguing"?

    Zanth,Rsdhead,Jpak>Regardless of what opinion the GS may hold or in fact any other headphone. Maybe it one preferences and taste's which play a major role on percieving what makes or breaks it. And while many feel that the GS is best grado ever there will be an opposite number that don't hold...

    Zanth and Rsdhead>Yes you both raise very good points. I don't like to judge individual components on its own merit. I like to judge it as a combo of the whole. With so many options available these days regarding sources/amps/headphones. It should be possible to build a very nice setup...

    Zanth>I would have to respectfully disagree. As much as I enjoy the Rs-1's for many their unique tone if you will is very off putting. As it add this colouration to every type of music. So you really have to be one the Rs-1 sniper crews to enjoy it for all genre's. So given the GS tonal...

    GS1000 First impressions

    I think one of the reasons why the GS seem to appeal to you is they match nicely against your source. IIRC you have the ML 390s? So the issues that some headfiers have with the GS doesn't appear in your setup. Or they simply just don't like it.

    Who are the most vocal supporters of these cans?

    You could list 20 or so popular headphones and then ask people to nominate when they see the phones who is most associated with them. Stuff like the cd3k's, Rs-1's, L3k's etc. You will find more often that not that the same people will get associated with them.

    Commodore 64 question... you do remember those? :)

    What I remember most about the Amiga was the demo disks as in people coding their own demos and stuff. Doing their own graphics and making their own tunes up. There use to be loads of them. Lini>Okay I will try unzipping that huge archive again. The one thing I never got for my Amiga...
