    The Headcase Stax thread

    Yup, the 507's are the biggest turd Stax have ever made. I don't think there is any other set which has just been truly bad like that. I'd take the 207's over them any day let alone the 307/407 which were the best from that generation.

    Nursery Cryme So great, from the opening barn burner, “Musical Box” to the underrated closer, “Fountain of Salmacis”.

    I fucking hated the 507 FWIW. Absolutely the worst Stax I've heard by far. Peaky and bright mess regardless of amplification. The only headphone where I straight up didn't enjoy listening to music.

    Meanwhile ... " But, is it really titanium? The least green metal in existence? I mean boil ilmenite in sulfuric acid until the iron dissolves out. Filter, dry, and heat to red heat, then add chlorine gas to make TiCl4. Condense that out of the exhaust, gather it up, and place into a reaction vessel with either sodium or calcium metal. Light it off, when the vessel stops bouncing, you have titanium sponge with salt. When it cools down, wash out the salt, and melt the titanium in a vacuum furnace to get a metal. The good news is when you need a new number, given how hot titanium burns, disposing of the old card will be very entertaining. Note, class D fire extinguishers do not work on titanium. Your choices are vacuum, carbon monoxide, and argon or helium."

    What relevant specs distinguish the performance of the SR-507 from that of the SR-207? I recently acquired a 507 pair & did a comparison using the twin sockets on an SRM-1/MK2. The phrase that popped into mind after a few minutes of comparing the two was “dirty windshield”, the dirty windshield being the 207s. Of course, this was obvious when comparing the two. By itself, the 207s are outstanding when placed up against electrodynamics & wipe the floor with the latter. The 507s beat the other pair in clarity & bass definition. Voices are better defined & percussion is more detailed, “wetter”, deeper-sounding. Is the thinner diaphragm responsible? I do want to do more testing before selling the 207s. I have a better amp to buy. ;} I got the 507s at an outstanding price, brand new. The build quality & comfort are significantly better than those of the 207s. I highly recommend them.

    Start with some commonly available instructions, like the excellent stuff at AMB's website. Like this - https://www.amb.org/audio/beta22/, among others.

    Does anyone have any tips for building an enclosure? I need to make one for a CFA. How do I go about mounting the transistors to the heat sinks?

    I’d actually recommend going backwards from Selling England by the Pound ...but yeah, if prog ain’t your thing, don’t force yourself. They are pretty much prog incarnate during the PG years. Many consider ...Lamb... to be the pinnacle of prog, and it’s as impenetrable as it gets.

    Next up should of course be.. And I understand about the prog barrier - but you are pretty close with Plays live - I might recommend going forward starting with Trespass. Not as proggy as Foxtrot with the epic Supper's Ready.

    This painting "The Masterpiece" went viral recently: Of course there have been a number of 'shops: If you don't get the reference on this one, well... (A print of this painting was in one of Jeffrey Epstein's houses.) My own humble contribution:

    Watches

    I really like mine, it was a gift from the wife. TT yellow gold with blue ceramic on the bracelet. My buddy got it right when they came in stock like I did, but he wanted SS black which our AD didn't have the bracelet version of thus he had to order it separately. The bracelet adds a lot of character to the watch imo. The micro adjust is also quite nice to have. My other omega was also a gift from the wife, the planet ocean big blue. Of the two the 300m is miles more wearable. The lugs are also pretty short so I feel that it wears closer to a 40 than a 42. It wears better than my 40mm Panerai luminor, the 300m actually feels smaller because the way it sits on the wrist. The planet ocean is a monolith and feels every bit it's size on the wrist Lol. The first comment I get from people when they hold it is "wow this is really heavy" that's not typical of a ceramic watch! It is more comfortable than my old rolex dssd. It hugs my wrist more so I don't hit it on things like I did with the dssd.

    Some day I need to go back and listen to the albums he did with Genesis. Prog can be pretty impenetrable to those of us who didn't experience it at the time.

    It's true, for diyer, Mouser, RS , Element14 or TME etc are best choice. Few month ago,I have bought some FAKE PCM1704s, of course they didn't work. The best way to find out who they are , is disassembling.....by fire, on microscope , I saw HC574 and TI mark on the die.......What a joke. Another example was my personal favorite op LM4562, I got some on same way, and matched their dies with AD744, remarked for sure. Also funny is in China AD744 is more expensive than LM4562 now. Hell......but seems Kevin already known everything about fake parts.😎
