RE: Grado SR80e

Don't worry about the cable going south. I have had a SR60 for over 10 years without issues. OTOH my 4 month old Hifiman HE-400s has a broken cable on the right even though I had put heat shrink over the cable/plug junction to protect them on day 1.
I looked up the impedance on your pre (Parasound P5, yes?). It is 100 ohm and the Grado's are low impedance phones (32 ohm). So the match is not very good - you may be losing bass. Probably better to listen via the DAC or consider a headphone amp with low output impedance.

I married the perfect woman. The downside is everything that goes wrong is my fault.
