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."

"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

Jico Neo SAS for Technics Epc-202C

I already have the original SAS for the 202 end sounds good, but the Neo sounds much better. The lows seem to extend further and with better definition, the mids are warmer but again have better definition and the highs are clearer and more accurate. I can now hear the resonance of the sound box as well as the strings on Stringed instruments, saxes sound fat and warm, cymbals sound real not hiss and bright. The Neo really suits my system. I was worried the Neo would be brighter than the original, but it sounds more real, like the music is being played in the room not coming out of a stereo.
