    JH Audio stuffs

    Okay, I guess. I went back to my Etymotics a while back. After the JH's initial thrill of power, the coherence of the single driver won out for me

    The Headcase Stax thread

    As a matter of curiosity, what's the rough range of power draw (W) in electrostat amps? I assume the heavy hitters like KGSS Carbon and BHSE use significantly more power?

    Macbook Pro vs. Air vs. ...?

    If she's already happy with the Mac interface, she's probably best sticking with it. 13" Macbook Pro is $1800. If that's too steep, a second hand model (eg the 13" Macbook Pro without the TouchBar) is the best bang for buck. Hackintoshes are great if you want better raw performance and enjoy the process of managing kernel dependencies etc but not recommended for laypersons.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    Long-timers, do you still think Stax has the special edge over planars etc in terms of clarity and 'resolution'? I'm looking at making the final upgrade but BHSE/009 is a hell of a jump

    Apex Peak + Volcano

    Waiting with bated breath for the DSHA-1 / Peak comparison - mostly because I've long wanted a DSHA-1 and recently enjoyed the P1u a lot (blessingx earlier said the Peak had the edge on it).
