  1. Those were (in excellent condition) for sale here recently... The price was... khm.. measly 8500 €
  2. Yeah, well... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGi2AlMhraQ
  3. Well, it's the other way round, as I see it: I am still NOT waiting for you to give a proper answers to any of the findings that @spritzer presented here. I gave up on waiting for you to say something sensible early in this thread. I cannot use the plural here, that is, mention what others are waiting for here. Since I have no idea. As in, I am surprised that they still have this much patience with you. I cannot see what "facts" you have mentioned in any of your posts, apart from praising the whatever devices in question for their sound quality. Regarding your quote from the manufacturer, I see that one as really revealing as well. Kind of reminded me of one another attempt of "rebuttal" several years ago. I am just sitting here and waiting for someone to dissect it properly, since I have read it. It only did reaffirm the impressions I already got, from way before you have quoted it here. Just to remind about one small detail: The guy ( @spritzer ) presented hard facts, the way he sees them, and you in return called him "an asshole", for that. Which, to me, says a whole lot. This. 🏆
  4. What can I say... nordic "internal deviations" The local version here is Skål... but the etymology of the word is what's more interesting... as you probably already know...
  5. From the bottom of my heart... I envy you ! You have probably destroyed more things than other people (none mentioned, none forgotten ) have seen... and - I meant, of course, electronics - audio related stuff...
  6. ... just when I had hopes 'bout someone building me an amp here... confidence level rising...
  7. Furthest I've come was launching a led diode to the ceiling from the circuit board... no countdown prior...
  8. Just started to read on (from its beginning) old thread... very interesting... will do some reading on it now to see what eventually happened with that 1.2k V amp project... Still probably doesn't match this "venture"
  9. Thanks for the offset... now for me : off to the nearest bridge and jump... Ever considered some charity work, Birgir ? Now, joke aside, I think there's far more serious issue raised by the question of dissecting amps, building the same (only improved though) staff or the far lesser price.... it really boils down to the matter of the state of the "industry" and how to improve it... Not really wanting to sound pretentious (with all risk to get there inadvertently), just a food for thought. Oh, another thing, spritzer, You have mentioned earlier that you are not sure you would want to become a brand. That being entirely (within) your discression, I for one believe it is a darn shame, nothing wrong with earning something and at the time improving the state of the industry or business for what could become a vast array of customers and - well - heafiers -headcasers, audiofiles, etc. Someone said that appreciating a good quality (and well engineered) sound and music is really a matter of culture... couldn't be more true.
  10. Overbuilt staff rule (when done properly)... HD800, well, yes, thinking again, +1 on that - some Beyerdynamic came out, K812 (reportedly not measuring as well as HD800)... But HD800 started an ugly trend of serious, major jump in prices of the cans ... Orthos - never tried any of them, some swear by them, others even returned to supposedly much lesser and cheaper dynamics, claiming that they never found in them what they already had in their dynamics, so... who knows... Speaking of overbuilt stuff (physically and otherwise), whatever happened to the thread where the same overbuilt stuff was supposed to be well possible to make for like 500 $ max ? I remember some things said about the amp design, some caps bleeding into circuit, etc... Btw., posting the pic of something (custom) built by some former Copland engineer... Anything sized less than (about) this (not to mention that puny stax amp(s) ) should be prohibited by the law . Make stuff properly, god dammit.
  11. Reading from the different sources (not only the head-case.org, but mostly), everything points about what you've said about the amp... opting to go with the non-stax (on not the one at the link) amp would be the option... funny though... as a side note: the founder of the beyerdynamic (I have read somewhere) reportedly deemed out the electrostat technology as something that will never be optimal for headphones... I actually have the reverse "illness", I have always thought that those stack amps look too small... I would actually love to have an electrostat amp of the size of the Studio Six or one of the Apex amps... Again, more to the point... the price distribution of the cans themselves and the amp is telling : http://hifi-freaks.dk/webshop//produkter-hovedtelefoner-hovedtelefoner-stax-sr-007ii-p-359.html if you look at the pricing of the package, amp + can. While decent SR007 rig is - well - pricey, when you look at the top of the line dynamic and ortho- amps + cans vs. SR007 + good electrostat amp... well, the question remains, i guess even pricewise... leaps in the sound quality of the dynamic systems have been admittedly made over the years, but still... questionmark on why one would opt as of today for the dynamic system vs. making the long-term investment on SR007mkII based one. There were some (endless?) debates whether electrostats cut it for the bass-heavy music, i just wonder whether the whole issue was really the amps used and not the cans themselves..
  12. Skimming through this thread... just looked out of coincidence on one retailer's page in Denmark... no advertising by any means, so please remove the link if needed, or notify me to do so. http://hifi-freaks.dk/webshop//produkter-hovedtelefoner-saet-forstaerker-hovedtelefon-stax-sr-007-sr-007mkii-srm-007tii-p-349.html Now, looking at the price point (not knowing a squat about the quality of the amp itself) the question naturally arising is: What is the point of dealing with the dynamic system at all (or orthos, for that matter) - pricewise and regarding the sound quality? This is really honest question on my behalf... it just seems striking that for this price you can get electrostats...
