  1. The Headcase Stax thread

    I had no idea they would make it compatible. I figured they would want to lock you into their amp. In the event that the impressions continue to come back negative I hope at some point they get plugged into a known good amp so we can know for sure what the headphones can or cannot do.
  2. The Headcase Stax thread

    Woo audio just posted a picture of the Jr Hifiman stat connected to a GES. I guess that means if anyone ever gets one in the wild they can power it from a known quantity for evaluation.

    If recent projects are any indication I think you have just come up with a perfect Mjolnir audio slogan "Amps crammed into a small ass chassis"

    Yea, it has take some time but 2 channel pricing insanity is fully into the headphone market. But your BHSE and Spritzers Carbon remain arguably the best performing options out there and both are priced rationally. I hope that the two of you can continue to provide that balance.

    New stats flagship amp pricing looks not so fun.

    This was posted at the other place but I figured it should be put here too, credit JimL11 for the pic/original post. 300b s seem to be trending..

    Still though, your two locations are about as far away as you can get.. that considered, I thought it would be more.

    Isn't natural light more of a theory for you in January!

    They have been selling those pads for some time. I assume that is because they are interchangeable with the rest of their ether pads. Maybe these would be a good option. https://www.mrspeakers.com/shop/accessories/ear-pads/ether-c-angled-ear-pads.html They also made this comment.' I thought it was the other way around. "The efficiency is considerably better than early prototypes, it's now better than the 009 but a bit less than the 007."
  10. The Headcase Stax thread

    Spritzer may seem to be very abrasive at first. But look at what he had to say about the phenomenon libratum on its thread here. He was actually quite complementary about the sound signature. And measured in his criticism of day to day design issues. He is less measured when fan boys declare it the best thing since sliced bread. That's more on the fan boys than the headphone but may not come across was such.

    I went back and forth with which to get between the yggy and the spring dac. Ultimately the upgrade-ability got me to go with the yggy. I have been frustrated at times when I wanted a high res album but because the rights were Sony.. So DSD only. But with this analog upgrade and usb gen 5, for me having to stick with CD quality in those cases is less of an issue. Because upgrade-itis means if holo released a new dac next year I would be attempting to sell my current and purchase the new one. Wish I could have multiples of equipment, but I have too many hobbies requiring significant investment. Also I'm lazy fwiw.

    Hey you could get there.. just do a normal passive preamp and stick the Megatrons tube complement on top and run the heaters. I mean it would look pretty? right Edit:: OMG I just started imagining the tube rolling options..

    Ahh, now I know who was trolling them with that idea!

    This update is starting to be treated like the second coming on the other site..

    I thought some of the old guys who made tubes back in the day said the new ones will not sound the same because some of the chemicals and production methods are not be allowed today. I have and will always avoid some amps that make use of specific tube types because the prices for "good" variations of the tubes are just too ridiculously high.
