    It was a silver one recently ordered from Japan and the serial number SZ2, wasn't suppose the new ones to be SZ3 ?

    SZ2 are current production. Also amps... I think I posted someone's FR graph here a year or so ago recording no difference from 252 on up to 717 at very high amplitudes with an 007a. This suggests to me that Stax amplifier differences lie in the ultrasonic region. On the other hand I haven't heard any amp other than 323S, and this puts me in contrast a little bit with others here.

  2. Thanks spritzer and justin. That's good to know.

    I've also got flecks of debris between the hard case and the sealed plastic packaging. What I'm trying to do is figure out whether it's actually new or I'm getting someone's monkey model.

    Edit: yeah, It's an ebay purchase. I'm not in the states.

    Go over them again for me please.

    I know they've reworked the cable relief and have had channel balance problems to an unknown extent. I'm going to be buying one so long as it doesn't get overpriced like the new 700 amplifiers.

    For example the L300 Limited has a nasty +7dB bump at 1300Hz which needs to be corrected.

    If you listen to a sine sweep, it won't be there. Some people try to appear smart by listening through a FR graph.

  5. What can we say about the perception of sound coming from large diaphragms vs point sources? This lambda pair I'm listening to I suppose is large enough that higher frequencies enter the hearing system across a broader phase range than typical of headphones. Add to that the lambdas being poorly uniform at 8 kHz and from 14 kHz upward.

  6. Good luck on nailing the bad guy. I hope he remains unalerted before he gets his doorknock.

    The headband on my 307 just snapped. I was taking them off and felt them go limp. They were never subject to any force.

    Is staxusa the best place to get a replacement to Australia?
