    I can not comment on that, as i have never heard that amp....I am using the Mad Ear +HD, just one unit.

    according to the good dr, the two sound about the same, the super II just more powerful
  3. deuter

    Even though the output impedance on the super 2 is lower, I would have thought it would suit the Grado PS1000 better
  4. jaywillin
    that's possible, the ps1000 does seem to like a little more power
    i drove the ps1000 with an ear + , it sounded good, but maybe the super 2 would be better
  5. deuter

    On my Leben, I find the PS100 needs more volume than the hd800.

    @joseph69 is a good person to ask about the ps1000 and amping it, you can find him usually on the grado thread
  7. deuter
    Cool mate, will check with him
  8. parbaked
    Either amp can drive the PS1000 fine.
    One significant difference is that the Super 2 uses EL84 output tubes instead of the 12B4A.
    Many appreciate the wider variety of tubes available for the Super 2.
    I had one...it rocked!

    Guys if anyone is interested in a Mad Ear + Purist HD I have a 230V for sale in Europe (for just 375 + tubes). It has been revised this year! [​IMG] It's a great amp but since I sold my Grado RS1i and got a Hifiman HE560 it's just sitting here collecting dust. And that's a shame imo.

    ^^ Great Price ^^

    How difficult would it be to switch it to 115v?
  12. Textfeud
    Not that hard, but you gotta know what you are doing. Plus that shipping to the States will be pretty steep so I would suggest you buy a 115V when it hits te market. You will pay roughly the same without the trouble.

    The price is so tempting. I'm surprised it hasn't been sold yet.
    Well, if someone wants to sell it, please let me know!
  14. Textfeud

    So am I. If anybody in the States want to buy it and make it 115v I'm game obviously. Shipping is 59 euro and I'll add the insurance fees/
  15. Unchi
    I highly doubt I have the skill to do it myself lol.

    Does anyone also know where I can try the Ear+ and Sidewinder near Boston?
    Thank you.
