What people say about the Grado RA-1 headphone amp

"With a tube-like rendering of timbre and a sweet, relaxed sound, the Grado RA-1 makes extended headphone listening a joy. Although battery-driven, the RA-1 is more at home in your equipment rack or on your desk than out on the road. A beautiful wooden case finishes off this gem."
- Reviewed By Robert Harley / The Absolute Sound

"With the Grado Reference RA1 handling the amplification, music was rendered truer, clearer, and more life-like than I had ever imagined was possible." Willie Gluckstern, Audio Magazine

"This is such a nice job of product engineering by John Grado, I think it earns a nomination for "Dudely Product of the Year Award."" Charles (His Dudeliness) Hollander, Positive Feedback

"Listening to my RS1's through the Grado RA1 headphone amp is like listening to a live performance, it puts you right there." Mark Rivera, Saxophonist with the Billy Joel Band

Stylus

It took over 24 day to get the correct stylus but we are happy with the correct stylus.

Great sound

Trebles, bass, mids all excellent. Had a hard time setting it up because the tracking angle needed to be just about spot on for excellent reproduction. Once that was figured out, voila!

Outstanding replacement stylus. I've had the Shure V15xMR cartridge for years. Have tried other cartridges but always returned the Shure back in to my system.
