    Curious to know your thoughts on specs & any expectations. 404LE was my first set, so have a soft spot for these LEs.

  3. The Headcase Stax thread

    Thank you Arnaud, for the elegant translation, which is largely accurate, including the innuendo and hesitation common to the Japanese idiom. In reading the original Japanese, the only thing that STAX says with certainty is that a new amp is forthcoming, hopefully on sale by next summer. They are "developing" a DAC function in the driver, but again, nothing certain. The 2018 anniversary is simply a provocation, with no commitment beyond the wish to do something commemorative-- Comments on the 4070 were particularly frank, seems they'd abandoned them even before finishing production.

    For this crowd, and since you've recently put MSB through the ringer, any thoughts, brutal or otherwise on the TotalDAC line? Have been considering one for some time, and Arnaud's just put his up, but thought I'd check with the evisceration squad first--

    The ear pads on my set look relatively new, so they may not be original. Best to refurbish regardless?

    Thank you Spritzer. A big difference in sound between the earlier and later versions? To me the SR-1 sounds like a more primitive version of but very similar to the SR-3.
  7. The Headcase Stax thread

    Thank you for this information, what features signal the particular version?
  8. The Headcase Stax thread

    Thank you Spritzer, I am also amazed by how well they hold up, and how good they sound, in spite of everything. Haven't seen too many available, so was happy to have this chance to hear them. Will post photos soon.
  9. The Headcase Stax thread

    Just picked up a set of SR-1s and was curious to know what the experts think of them. To me, they sound as I expected, not as developed as more modern STAX but remarkable nonetheless. Wanted to post pictures but am limited on my account.
  10. The Headcase Stax thread

    Since I'm in Tokyo at the moment I called STAX and asked about the 1004 serial number and the person there told me that the serial numbers are generated randomly and do not represent the order in which they were made. I asked about the number over 1000, and he said it's possible. If so, there might be others over 1000. I've seen about 10 of these and never one over 1000, but maybe there are more, unless the serial number is inaccurate.
  11. The Headcase Stax thread

    Thank you for the quick response, this is interesting; would they put a 1 before the 4 rather than 0004?
  12. The Headcase Stax thread

    Just picked up a used set of 404LEs, and the serial number is 1004. Is this possible when only 1000 were made?
  13. The Headcase Stax thread

    Are the imbalance issues unique to the 009s, and if so a design flaw?
  14. The Headcase Stax thread

    (True, my apologies, removing lame post.)
