    Quote:   "So, if I'm reading that correctly, it would be kind of different then."     Correct, but not that different.

    The wood color and lightness/darkness varies depending on the wood and finish. Totally normal.

    Bicycle-Fi!

    A cyclocross bike would be ideal in your situation if you could get used to the drop bars. One thing I know about hybrids is that the frames tend to be more compact putting you in a more upright position. While this can be more comfortable for some people, it's not ideal for speed or long...

    Bicycle-Fi!

    Quote: For a hybrid, you'll find that aluminum and steel are the norm. Aluminum is an excellent frame material. It's light and cheap. It can corrode under salty conditions, but usually only when exposed. That's why aluminum frames are painted, just like steel is painted because of rust...

    LCD-2 VS Grado RS1 for Rock

    Interesting discussion here. My brother sold all his headphones to purchase the LCD-2 which he is happy with. I thought I'd do the same, but can't bring myself to do it because I still like different signatures for different types of music. Someone mentioned the LCD-2 as being a refined D-5000...

    Grado PS-1000, Mapletree Audio EAR+HD, Centrance DACport, Xonar ST impressions.

    Looks like the listed price + 10% + approximately $30 for shipping. Plan on spending about $800. You can always shoot him an email or call for the exact shipping cost as it depends on where it's being shipped to.

    Grado PS-1000, Mapletree Audio EAR+HD, Centrance DACport, Xonar ST impressions.

    Haven't been around in awhile, but stumbled across this nice review. I don't have the PS-1000, but the Ear+ HD is my main amp and I love it with all my headphones, Grado RS1i, Denon AH-D5000, Beyerdynamic DT 880, etc. There really isn't a headphone that sounds bad with this amp. I use mostly...

    MAD Ear+ Purist HD thread.

      Quote: Interesting, because I've experienced exactly the opposite with the LCD-2/Ear+ as compared to my brother's Concerto. This is with a sylvania 5751 bp tm or Raytheon bp windmill, both 1950s nos. The bass is punchier, not bloated, the treble perfect, and the mids actually more...

    GRADO GR10: Reviews, First Impressions Thread

      Quote: I know. I was expecting to like the eq-7 better based on all the head-fi hype, but I've listened to the gr8 for several months now and really prefer the smoothness of them. The treble clarity of the eq-7 is superior, but the mids sounded somewhat harsh to my ears after...

    GRADO GR10: Reviews, First Impressions Thread

      edit: i called the 32 ohm audio (alo) store and they said they just got the grado gr10s in about an hour ago. I was just there a couple weeks ago comparing the gr8 and eq-7 of which I preferred the gr8. Been waiting for them to get the gr10 in. Looking forward to a good A/B.

    Two weeks until I order the Woo but I've lost my perspective to the evil "Mr. Audiophile"

    We fellow North Westerners (and former NWesterner Uncle Eric) should go to Mardi Gras and start a revolution. Down with cheap beer!

    From that selection of beer, who would be able to tell the difference? lol They all taste exactly the same. No wonder his scheme worked.   Quote:

    amp/dac suggestion for my new beyerdynamic DT880 (600)

    The DT880/600 sound really nice with the MKlll, if you like your sound light and airy.   I pair mine with a MAD Ear+ HD and V-Dac and they sound amazing with this combo.

    Got a choice to make now

    What kind of music do you listen to? What is your source? This will help head-fiers to suggest something for you.   Another you might want to research is the new Grado GR10. There's not yet more than a handful of reviews, but it seems to be the closest competitor to eq-7 at the moment. Just...
