    i used to own a grado sr125 and have auditioned the RS1 before, whether its an overkill or underkill, its a matter or preference because i tested the RS1 on a portable source as well, and the mids, strings, and vocals were definitely distinct to that of a lower grado model. but eventually i quitted grado cuz i couldnt stand the coupling at least, it gives me a slight ear-ache everytime i listen, but thats subjected to individuals, and you could actually reduce that by using some different earpads etc
    I get ear ache with my MS Pro, can't imagine using a RS-1.

    Anyway, the RA-1 is seen as overpriced for some people. If you want to use with iPod, probably the RSA Hornet or Tomahawk or the Gilmore stuff will be a better buy.
    A camera cannot teach you how to see.

    How's the 8000A as a preamp? I'm contemplating getting the 8000C but i find if i get the 8000A, it'll be an overkill as it's an integrated with onboard amplification...
    The 8000A is a dual-purpose amp indeed. I did not want to buy the 8000P at first but instead a friend of mine let me have it for $200 (a steal!) as he is upgrading his system.

    What cartridge are you running on your TD 160 Mk II? I'm running both the Shure M55E (for that retro sound) and the Shure V15 Type III.
    I have a Pioneer Elite PD-65. As for the Thorens, I am using Sumiko Blue Point. Before that, I had an Ortofon. I don't like the sound from Shure..... Too lean for my liking.

    tomahawk about 520. 5pro about 370. plus a lineout cable for ipod for as little as 30+ to 100+...so your 2K more than enough la.....can even spend the other 1k on a modified ipod for a better source.

    I am looking for a small and cheap amp like the Sonic Impact t-amp to hook up my PC to an external set of speakers. Is Sonic Impact available here?

    Or is there an similar type of amp that is small like a headphone amp but can accept line in and speaker out via bare cable? thanks!
