Yeah, I always try to steer people here, The Basement is good for what it is, but I see a lot of horrible advice posted there.


on topic: You may need an amp to benefit from those Grados, any thoughts on that any one?

I have a Yamaha RX-V663 receiver / amplifier, it has a 6.3mm jack on the front so I won't need to buy an Amp, thank goodness.

Been here for a while being a headphone user, never realized this existed. Not an uber high end system, but it sounds pretty good. I go from my newly acquired X-Fi --> Meier Corda Aria Amplifier (Analog) --> Grado SR325i or Yuin PK-1 buds.

You guys would laugh at me, up until very recently (less than a week) I was on integrated audio. Got the $40 X-Fi and was very impressed at the difference. After a bit of equalizer work I have my Grado's right where I always wanted them. With enough bass to hear it, but not so much to be boomy. I used to have Beyer Dynamic DT770's and hated how the bass overtook the sound. The Grado's have a very controlled bass with delightful mid/highs that never get lost. Just a wonderful set of phones and imho a pretty nice setup.

Look to me like those are from the same OEM as Equation Audio's RP-22x... Should get you in.

I agree with the Beyer comment the DT770s are just bass and sound muddy and the rescessed midrange dosent help either.

The SR325i/MS-2 are one of those headphones they will always sound good once you get them as they have a pretty bright and forward presentation.

Nice amp btw i have the Arietta
