Seen them around plenty, forums and what not ... new they were a collaborative effort with Grado but just haven't gotten to try them.

Here's a good review directly comparing the MSPros with the RS-1, at Head-fi:

MSPro vs. RS1

Guy likes them both but makes some good comments on their differences.

Just this afternoon I was bitten by the Denon D5000 "buy me now" bug.

$413 bucks from Amazon is tempting as hell.

What version, Vampyre?


S1rrah, I'd just get the D2000 and do the MarkL mod on it. $200 cheaper, and better sound after the mod. Seems like the stock D2000/5000 would be a bit boomy and bass heavy coming from RS1s.


As for me, I'm starting my search for a new amp at the end of the summer. Looking in the ~$500 and under range tube amps. Singlepower PPX3 and darkvoice 332 are in the lead, with a Millet Max hybrid and Little dot MKIV SE following closely behind.

Nah .

Really, it's what you want to do Joel. A few points -

1) The D5000 sounds rather amazing, laid back like an HD600, but superior in most, if not all, aspects. As I recall what struck me most was just how smooth the music sounded and how the D5000 performed with such ease.

2) Haven't heard the D2000, can't comment on it from personal experience.

3) Apparently, the D2000 can sound very similar after a woody mod (not necessarily Markl though, the plastic cups would not allow the D2000 to benefit like its big brother). At this point I can only guess at what a deep-cup woodied, fully Markl'd, D2000 would sound like. If both phones use the same drivers, than I really do not see why a modded D2 can't sound like a D5.

4) Since I want to go DX1000, I won't be able to work on my own pair of D2000's for a very, very long time. Man, if only someone would commission me for their own pair... ;>
