  1. Would wearing spectacles be classed as having a bad seal?
  2. She just thought her ears were burning because someone was talking about her.

  4. I have had the PA 3000HV amp and CD/SACD /DAC PDP3000HV for a few years now, build quality is top notch.

    The Abyss

    Wink That was a problem for me, They are difficult to adjust,at least the pair I tried on at the dealers, the dealer slipped with a screwdriver trying to turn the screwhead located on top of the bar and they were uncomortable on top of my head(shaved) from the off. They sounded to have a tilt towards the bass to me, so I guess the Stax and Abyss are chalk and cheese, you either like one or the other. Have you heard the hd800, were they bright for you as well? Maybe I should get a wig

    The Abyss build quality just does not say 5k cans to me. I personally would go hd800 based on sound/build quality even if the Abyss price was the same tbh.

The Stax SR009 however..... the seed was planted, and after a further longer listen at a dealers to both the SR 009,which I now have bought ,Abyss, just to confirm with my ears what I thought the first time, as by now there were some reviews saying how good they were(the king has no clothes) I was st

  9. Hi Dave I like the sound of the 717 but will be upgrading as soon as I can afford it, just had a look at spritzers web page, I had to look away as it all looks too tempting.
  10. Hi All My 1st post on the forum having just bought the 009's . I bought the SRM 717 from Astrostar59 . I borrowed the Woo to try out for a half day whilst I waited for the 717 to arrive, yes I could not wait one whole day to listen to my new 009's . I only had both for about an hour so did not really have a lot of time to compare the two, as soon as the 717 turned up I took the borrowed woo back to the dealer.. Sounds like it was just as well from what you say spritzer, looks like you saved me problems/cash further down the road. Do Woo know that this is a problem or is it a case of "puttin
