  1. No wonder it definitely was very unique from a lot of places in the UK
  2. Very well I studied at Newcastle for a few years actually on the Northumbria university campus
  3. Im also down to maybe setup a regional meet elsewhere as well im not to familiar with the UK only been around Manchester, London and Newcastle Upon Thyme. Perfect way to see the country as long as people are interested
  4. Hi guys just started work here in the UK and moved from New York, was posted to Barrow In Furness its located in the Lake District was wondering if there are any members around the area perhaps a set up a meet? I got one of Kerry new designed estate amps if anyone wants a listen?
  5. It’s 49.4mm all around no lugs so it’s completely the same all around the watch H 49.4mm W 49.4mm and D 15.3mm.
  6. Just got a watch but just found this new limited edition Seiko GoldenTuna its close to the 1986 year version, had to get it as that's my birth year, also got it at a bargin price!
  7. Just got this new seiko SLA021J a week ago was worried it might be to huge but I think it works well.
  8. Off Kerry's carbon and T2 the ES1a played roughly at the same db level as the SR007 at a set volume, while the SR009 was able to reach thatvsame db level at a fair bit lower volume level. I get the same results more or less on my carbon as well.
  9. Very nice, Just wondering if you got any extra pads and if so did you try them? My pair of "dark" pads are coming in soon.
  10. The ES1a is my choice. It’s all around more capable one of the two in my opinion. However it is much more in cost as well so it better be. The RR1 are excellent as well and should be a consideration as they compare well to many other stuff out there just not really in the same level the SR007 and SR009 are.
  11. If you are going to Canjam this weekend in NYC, ill be there likely most of the time over the two days. Ill have both my Kaldas RR1 and ES1a with me if anyone is interested in a listen.
  12. I have the same stax as you, I think these are worth a look at. For me when I got the SR009 I was looking for some things the sr007 lacked for me. Unfortunately it was close but no cigar. I’m pretty happy with the ES1a and Im currently freeing up some gear for it.
  13. I’m coming to CJ Kerry, though I’m not sure what you mean by bacon? See you there.
  14. No complaints on build. It’s mostly metal except for that arch part for the headband that’s plastic but it feel the same as whatever plastic stax has been using. The stitching on pads of the demo pair I got was slightly off as in the pics I took but that was only issue but a very minor one for me. Think Kerry didn’t have and complaints when we tried it but I’ll let him chime in if he wants. I’ve tried the L700mk1 at a shop in London a few months ago. I don’t think they are better than SR007 or sr009. It sounded more boxed sounding and imaging was a little of a let down.
  15. Thanks Scgorg, def will try to get those pads to give them a go as well. I felt they was a little heavy but was not to bad maybe how right was spread out? I have a smaller head I guess and I found the sr007 slightly more comfy not only due to less weight but then staying in place better then the overall roomy ES1a. Still not to bad in comfort and could have been much worse.
