    The Headcase Stax thread

    @MASantos Well this dealer its actually one person show as it was the stax dealer before him who actually used his house to show the gear. When the price difference is about 1k or more.. Also there are more stores selling it much cheaper on europe who also pay employees, but I understand where u are coming from.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    @Torpedo Yeah always learning. That's exactly how he works.. asked to listen L-700, told me it was too expensive to ask one just to listen unless he needed to make a big order and that could take months, even a year.. also if I were to purchase it I would need the 50% deposit.. and wait.. to arrive This dealer crys that so few people buy stax products but like you said they seem to forget we are in European Union and the market its now global, people will look before buying, no wonder they won't sell with those prices and this kind of service. Rant off..

    The Headcase Stax thread

    Funny story. Some time ago supersonido had this Rega speakers like half of the price of the Portuguese dealer so I just inquired him if he could do same price as I would prefer to buy from him. His solution ? Call the brand and make threats. Rapidly the prices went back to normal. Could see same happening if we just showed these to our Stax dealers.

    Yeah only the 009 is B-stock it seems. Even if it was it would be killer price compared to what my dealer sells, take a look and run: Price Table At this prices I'm tempted to just get the 007. What would be a good enough cheap amp just to get by while I get myself an kgsshv built?

    The Headcase Stax thread

    After some absence from the game went to stax dealer to listen to the new lambdas and I must say I really enjoyed the L-500 sound, not bright as fuck as the 507(didn't have the L-700). I had the 007 mk1 which I though was too dark but the 007mk2 sn/Z3 on the dealer just sounded pretty spot on. Maybe I'm just aging to prefer this sound and my mind is playing tricks. Is the L-700 the lambda do get or older versions are still better?

    Still find the 007 the superior one?

    Denafrips DACs

    Have any one compared the Denafrip Ares with one of the soekris Dacs? I'm tempted by the Ares, but the other being in Europe makes it easier with customs.
  10. Average at 5k and still gets Wall of Fame ? thats weird.

    The Orthodynamic Thread

    Any one heard both the M1060 and the HE400s ? Currently have the 400s and it has a pleasent sound for general listening, thinking to exchange it for it.

    Hifiman Edition 6 Headphones

    not even the hp1000? its my favorite for rock, all the others can't stand the brightness. Still he has a point, even though i like the retro style one also here could say it makes no sense that build quality for the price.

    Focal Utopia headphones...with Beryllium driver

    So how would you describe the Elears sound ? the 1k mark for a hf could make it a excusable purchase.

    Koss 950 (really turn me on) ...

    With the kgss I liked it more than the 007 and 507. But yes they lacked the detail level of the 007 but somehow they were most fun to listen to all different types of music and smooth like a baby ass.

    I decided to get some decent set of nearfield speakers to have on the desk next to the wall and I was thinking in something like the Audio engine A5 or Adam A5x. Don't know if I can get better for the money, what do you guys suggest?

    Have you heard this Smyth Research Realiser?

    So I went with a friend see some speakers at the Hi.fi store and while doing our listening session the owner was always talking about this simulator device that he got but we continued to say "yeah yeah lets hear the speakers". At the end he convinced us to have a go and I could see how all smiley he was. I put the stax 202 on the ears and I keep waiting for him to turn off the speakers and boot the headphones but when I take off the headphones I realized the speakers weren't playing and that was when my jaw dropped The sound was in fact coming from the headphones, it sounded exactly like the speaker but better, you know with stax speed detail etc.. so he best of both worlds. The store was already closing so I only listened to one song but that was impressive to say the least. From what he explained he had to put the small ear.microfone on his hears while playing music and the device saves the room acoustics according to each individual ears. You could have a tracking device on the headphone too if you want to turn the head and have the speakers position locked just like in real world. http://www.stereophile.com/content/music-round-45-page-2 http://smyth-researc...technology.html http://news.cnet.com/8301-13645_3-20010977-47.html?tag=mncol;txt I believe this thing have been on some of the headphone meetings, any of you gave it a go ?
