  1. I was lucky enough to grab your old Carbon 😊 I could see subtle changes from your old Carbon - volume pot, one output instead of two, ventilation holes at the back, directional changes to the XLR input/outputs am sure it would be sounding A M A Z I N G πŸ‘
  2. Hearty congratulations Kerry, What a beauty to behold am quite sure it would be sounding absolutely A M A Z I N G πŸ’₯πŸ‘βœŒοΈ
  3. Luckily I was able to manage to grab 009BK and now out of production 009 silver for me 😊
  4. Is STAX hinting us to get ready for new Omega πŸ€”
  5. Hmm so you have resumed taking in Bespoke orders, good news, Aumkar ✌️
  6. Thank you Peter I pulled a trigger on 009BK after your adviseπŸ‘ planning to add 007 to my collection, but torn between 007 Mk I or II, also guilty on waiting for a new revision of 007s. πŸ˜‰
  7. Hmm I captured a screenshot here it is
  8. Could this be new redesign of Omega II's? https://staxheadphones.com/products/007-mk2?variant=12195087548499&utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=Facebook+Shop
  9. You nailed it 🀣 Here's my modest Estats collection (thus far) - STAX 009BK, L700 Mk1/MKII, L500 Mk II, 404 LE, L300 LE, L207, Jade II, Kaldas Research RR1, Pollinator (by Nectar Sound). Yes, I do have both KGSShv and 353X. For L700 main improvement would be tigher/faster bass. KGSShv quite a powerful amp than 353X so might be a big step up, mainly I found it to be very revealing so it's a must that you have good source & music recording. Benefits - I would say overall helps realize the full potential of inefficient cans (007/RR1/VOCE) if you hear your music loud then KGSShv could be a good choice. I heard good things about Perun as well, you might also check out ES Labs offerings ES Labs ES-Sigma Electrostatic Headphone https://www.eslabhk.com/product-page/stock-es-sigma-electrostatic-headphone ES-1 alpha (es1a) https://www.eslabhk.com/product-page/es-1-alpha-electrostatic-headphone I think music/hearing preferences is very personal in nature and would say audition the headphones/amps before pulling a trigger the good luck with your hunt. Thank you!
  10. Yes you are right I think Mk I is better little wider soundstage marginal, this could be due to the snugger fit on the Mk II. And by "sharper" I meant they have better treble performance than the Mk I. Also they seem to be little faster. Take it with a big grain of salt may be my mind is playing tricks on me 😁
  11. Oh well L700 OG is my favorite and L700 Mk II is the newer toy. But the real reason is I am a hoarder especially with STAX Earspeakers 😁
  12. These are my subjective impressions. My chain Mac Book pro - > Denafrips Ares II - > KGsshv dual outputs (both L700 OG and L700 Mk II connected) L700 Mk II have tighter bass the reason could be due to angled metal forks giving it tab better clamping force and the may be the new cable might have something to do with it as well. L700 MK II is sharper and little more efficient than the L700 OG. Little better detail retrieval as well (I could be wrong as well). Hope this helps.
  13. Nice, could you share any links or pics 😁

  15. Many more happy returns of the day, Birgir ?
  16. Thanks Birgir, can't wait to hear about what you think of Jade II headphones when you take them apart ? will stay tuned.
  17. I agree as most of engineers behind the development of original Omega aren't around now, it would be a herculean task to replicate the magic. I'm all for the new folks to pull it off, fingers crossed.
  18. He says/hints at a new STAX Omega in the works at timestamp 12 mins 30 secs. ?
  19. Yeah I was surprised as well, when I saw the FS post on Head Fi it's magic (should have needed time to mod it to 200 volts). But the downside is that the amp (Kingsound M03) can't be used to drive STAX or Kingsound H series electrostats.
