RE: Are Grado RS2s too good for Rogue Audio Cronus headphone jack?

Unless the Rogue has a problem with the Grado's 32 ohm impedence, they should work fine. Some tube amps have trouble with low impedences. I would check with Rogue or your dealer on this. If the Rogue headphone jack has an overly warm sound, it may not be the best match either, depending on your source and taste. I drive my RS-2's with the headphone jack of an old NAD 701 Receiver and I think they sound great. The NAD is a bit unusual though, not many headphone jacks on any receivers sound this good. I have tried several headphone amps, including Grado's own, I would bet your Rogue will sound as good or better than it. (My NAD sounds a lot better than the Grado headphone amp.) I also own Grado SR-80's and the RS-2's are in another league-much better clarity, resolution and spaciousness. If you can get them new for $270, that is a great deal.
