    Grado e Series

    The two most profitable and low volume models using the 1/4 plug has enough profit in them to justify the added cost. The other models are made in larger volumes thus saving Grado money by using the 1/8 plug on the rest of the line

    WTB: Grado 225e

    I'm looking to pick up the new Grado 225e headphones. I've owned more Grados than you can shake a stick at. Now I want to try the new 'e' version. I have over 70 transactions on Head-Fi. The 44 you see and about 30 on the old system. I do not frequent these forums anymore so email me if you...

    Grado e Series

    I think Grado made a business decision. It will save them money using one plug than deciding which should get the 1/8 plug and which get the 1/4. John Grado would never make such a public statement, but rest assured, using business sense, that was the primary motivation.

    Sibling Rivalry; The Woo WA2 vs The Woo WA6SE (review posted: update 6-3-2011)

    @ Joe The HD800 and the WA6SE is a really great combo in my opinion. I hope you enjoy it. As for a source and DAC? IMHO I would concentrate on the DAC and if you want a transport, get a quality CD player as the transport and use it through your DAC. To be frank, you're not really going to...

    Sibling Rivalry; The Woo WA2 vs The Woo WA6SE (review posted: update 6-3-2011)

    @Llloyd I have been fortunate enough to hear Frank's Taboo/CSP one a couple of occasions. The answers aren't cut and dry and may just come down to aesthetic preferences. I will say that the Taboo does sound better with the CSP as it's preamp. Although I don't have any tube amps now, if I...

    Sibling Rivalry; The Woo WA2 vs The Woo WA6SE (review posted: update 6-3-2011)

    I think the HD650 would do better with the WA6SE with it's clearer and more solid state sound. The HD650, to me, has rolled off highs and a mid bass hump that's not as tight as other headphones. Although I never heard the WA2 with the HD650 I have with the WA6SE. I have said the dynamics of...

    What's your favourite song to impress someone with your equipment?

    On the occasions I've had someone listen to my setup (portable or full sized) I usually let the listener choose a song they like from my library. I find I get the most positive feedback that way. After they listen to a song or two of their chosing, I'll play a few songs I think will highlight...

    New to Miles Davis and Jazz

    I suppose a smoke filled office isn't as interesting. I think most people tend to want to romanticize things. A smoke filled jazz club sort of sets that image I suspect.
