  1. That's no unicorn. On my scale that find is more like flying unicorn. Thanks for sharing.
  2. Holy smoke batman that one expensive DIY line up. How does the L700 Sigma compare to the stock L700 in term of overall sound?

    It think it safe to say consumer's are now becoming very savvy with their purchases. So they would do a lot of research on the internet before making the final decision to buy anything now days. Realizing they can get similar quality for a lot less.
  4. On the topic of hard to drive. I recently acquired a Stax ELS-F81, oh man this thing is damn hard to drive. 73db/1W, only thing that drives it half decent is my 100 watt tube amp powered by 8x KT-150 power tubes. the impedance curve of these speakers sucks the life out of any SS amp I've tried so far.
  5. I saw that and I was like. WTF was that fan doing there??
  6. Thanks heaps got in touch with him. Very nice and down to earth person to deal with if anyone needs their Quad or Stax ESL service. Looks like I need to send him the panel to have them both restored to match.
  7. Very old thread, but anything is better than nothing. Anyone got Kent's contact details? I've got a F81 purely by accident, both speaker working but one of them doesn't play as loud. Pull them apart and did a panel swap, still same issue. Then check by placing a led light behind the panel. Spotted 4-5 small holes in the mylar membrane on the lower two section of the panel. Anyway one know anyone in the world that would have a spare working panel?
  8. Buddy you got that much budget to consider a T8000. Why not buy a proven design instead like a Blue Hawaii SE or KGSSHV Carbon?
  9. You have so much rare stuff spritzer, I'm surprised you haven't setup a museum already. ?

    So they're much better than the KOSS 950? Or just different?

  12. Removable cables... Bloody should have been the standardized 20+ years ago after the release of the SR-Omega. It like buying a new cars with no ABS brakes.
  13. Thank you for posting your thoughts on the 009BK because they match my finding on my pair. I was beginning to think I'm losing my hearing. They sound noticeably different from the standard 009 non S. How on earth does a paint job alter the sound so much I wonder.
