    The Headcase Stax thread

    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.

    Stax ELS-F81 thinking of side-grading

    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.

    Stax ELS-F81 thinking of side-grading

    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?

    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?

    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.

    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.
