    I forgot to mention, I'm using modded Senn pads on the MS-1.

    Opinions/advice wanted: 2nd pair of good phones?

    Damn. After auditioning most phones that were on my list I must admit that maybe I'm a Grado guy after all. Today I did some A/B testing with my MS-1. Rest of the gear used was my iHP-120 + Porta Corda MKII (I know the source is far from perfect but if phones sound good with this source, they...

    Opinions/advice wanted: 2nd pair of good phones?

    I have no problems with Grado ergos (with comfies and modded senn pads that is). If I decide to go for second pair of Grados, I'll probably go for MS-2's because I can get them at a better price directly from Alessandro. Local price for SR-225 in Finland is a staggering 370 euros, when I can get...

    Porta Corda MkII: first impressions

    I've been experimenting a bit with the crossfeed feature. The effect seems to be very subtle, it reduces the bass punch a bit, sounds a bit more relaxed and also takes a bit away from soundstage (not that my Alessandros have that much soundstage to begin with ). I also get an impression that...

    External amp usage with iriver ihp-1x0?

    I usually set volume to 25. If I'm stationary, I use amps volume control. While on the move, I usually set volume to comfourtable level and if I need to decrease it, I use remotes volume setting so I don't have to fiddle with the amp.

    Porta Corda MkII: first impressions

    Ok, time for more 1st hand experiences. Yesterday I switched the amp into Class A mode. As I'm too lazy to try comparing the A/B and A modes, I just share my experiences of the Class A mode vs. unamped. I'd say that the overall sound in Class A mode is similar to A/B-mode, but the...

    I use LAME and EAC in secure mode, results have been very good. I tried APX but after I didn't notice any difference on my gear to APS rips, I just started ripping APS.

    How do you carry your mp3 player/amp combo around?

    I carry my amp+iHp in a Lowepro 30W case. I clip the remote into my jackets inner pocket and use the players volume controls while I'm on the move (if I even bother to use the amp with my MX500). If I'm stationary I set the volume approx 60 % of the max and use amps volume knob to adjust...
