    AKG Q701 Quincy Jones "FAKES"

    Anyone heard of any fakes being sold on this particular model? I see some that say Made in Austria and some that don't? I thought for the last several years AKG was making these in China.

    Just got a 70's Vintage Marantz Receiver

    Just bought a Marantz 4240 Stereo/Quad Receiver and I'm really enjoying the "dual" headphone jacks. Like most 70's vintage Marantz, it has that nice smooth sound and compliments my Grado 325i phones perfectly. Cool blue lights too...

    Grado 325 (silver version) vs. RS-2

    Anybody own /owned both and can tell me if there is a LOT of difference in the SOUND of each. I own the SR-60 and SR-325's and love them both. I can tell a difference in the plastic and metal Grado's sound. Would adding the RS-2 be a waste of $$$. Thanks CJ

    Ordered some Grado SR60's-- AGAIN!!

    Grado SR-60 OR SR- 225, Which to choose?

    Beyerdynamic DT880 vs. DT 831

    Has anyone done a comparison to these two phones? Do they sound very similar (ie.Senn HD580/HD600) or does one clearly outshine the other? Please comment. Thanks

    Phillips SACD 1000

    I bought one of these about a month ago and think it is very good at redbook. It seems to mix well with either of my Creek OBH-11/MG Head OTL amps and Senn HD580/Beyer Dt831's cans combinations. My previous Rotel and Onkyo CDP's sounded good but this player is MORE soothing to the ears during...

    MG Head/Tube Rolling

    The MG Head comes with a 12ax7. Has anyone tried other base 9a tubes (ea. 5965,6211,5814,12bz7,12az7,6829,...)? Is it SAFE to try the more than 40 variations? Could it cause any Damage to the headphone amp?
