  1. @JimLFor starters, thank you very much for sharing. Have since found your article as well, so i'd consider me in a good place to start. And given my non-existing skillset, this is where you may all laugh heartily Am a recent Stax convert in search of a amp. Have had a lot to weigh in and eventually had it down to one out of three; i) a used T1 with your mod, ii) a used 727 -unmodded for starters- (no offense to the usual two suspects), iii) a used 353X/XBK with only a heatsink replacement, largest i could fit. Given availability, pricing and most of all condition-to-price, i 'settled' on
  2. Ooh, i can relate to that.. most things, whole instruments included, i've had to buy blind, fingers crossed and all. Appreciate your responding by the way and agreed, sticking to what you know is a wise approach. If you enjoy it, it ends there :)
  3. History does tend to repeat itself, yeah ^^ And not alone either as it appears. https://www.techspot.com/news/82624-microsoft-successfully-archives-warner-bros-uperman-movie-piece.html Far as data retention went, we only had two issues with CD/DVDs.. moving parts, and material deterioration/fragility. If either approach listed here is what they say it is, welcome news to me. USB flash drives never managed to replace traditional external storage units, as past a controller, that's exactly what they are. And said same old storage solutions all come with issues; spinners are
  4. Assuming you can be asked obviously; Which incarnation of it do you own and how would you describe its reproduction? Most of all, compared to which DAC(s)? Not gonna lie, it's hard to be unbiased when it relates to Schiit(tm). You can sing whatever tune you want when you need to sell for a living, granted, i play songs and pieces i'm ashamed to name for a living; but when you've decided your tune involves a tag of "musical/industry anarchist" when in practice you go and patent stuff (both real and imagined) left and right.. and when some of said stuff isn't even yours exactly,
  5. Googled 'Qobuz', live and learn Switch guitar, switch deities. Trying (and still failing) to sound like him. Say what you will about his prowess or skills, his tone is out of this world: Multiple albums really, i have them in a row and just play along.
  6. Had no idea about the drivers being angled.. much obliged @Scgorg :)
  7. I like things simple If time allows, JD + spices + poly bags + red meat. You marinate it right, all you need is a frying pan, can't mess it up. If time doesn't allow, spaghetti + tuna or freshly grinded tomatoes. Tons of Kerrygold or extra mature cheddar on top. The end. Have heard mention of vegetables / assorted ""healthier"" ingredients, but i'm a man of science. Barring hard scientific data (which -lacking the knowledge- i'm thankfully unable to collect myself), i refuse to give in to petty fallacies and as such ignore them. One must above all be reasonable.
  8. While saving for the 700MK2 (i wish i knew people that bother with all this, i'd opt for used Staxes but.. whom from? Dare not risk it), i'm trying to see what i can do with my current pair, given their age. I found a mention of SoCas, was wondering if anyone's bought anything from them? They have these custom plates for dirt cheap, am thinking if i could fit those in mine, i could then use newer design earpads from Stax. Only problem is i don't know how much it affects the sound? Anyone ever tried this? * /rhetorical, but Jeesus almighty, lol, who in the world wanted this.. i'd
  9. You're very kind, thank you both Really appreciate it. (and here's to hoping one day i'll get to email about a Carbon. There's this bank i've my eye on..)
  10. While nothing more tactful for a newbie to do than resurrect old threads, i'm afraid above link is dead; if anyone's capable of re-uploading, it'd be greatly appreciated. And sincere apologies. * Am looking for an amp and a Carbon's out of my reach for now, have thus been searching for used SRMs; currently leaning towards either a used T1 that will be modified as shown in a different thread here, or a used 727. (regarding the instructions/illustration, i lack the knowledge to grasp what needs be done, but have someone that does.. had i the image to show them. Unless of co
  11. It's only, what, 3 grand with taxes and customs? Bit more? Do it yourself just for the kicks, it's fun! (yes i know, not for me, granted. Still though, i could see me sweating profusely while trying to do that)
  12. The man who taught me guitar; well, in spirit as it were; And the man who reminded me that heritage isn't necessarily a bad thing. The more North you go, the more must you smile and use body language ^^
  13. Thank you very much, both of you; G.A.S. huh? I liked that one. I've gas with my 200K Scoville rated Tabasco, but minus a trip or two to the throne room, it doesn't cost me anything.. Left it vague on purpose, but i asked because they need a new headband and earpads. On top of them two that i cannot avoid ordering (and honestly, it's fine), the cable has seen better days; still fine, but you can tell even with a passing glance that, yeah.. This latter i cannot do anything about, though am sure others would. As i'm also not exactly well off, i have to consider longevity as well. I'
  14. Greetings from a new member Bit of a story as to how i found you, or why i wanted to ask here specifically, but i won't bore you with my oddities (of which i have many)! Suffice it to say for now that i wanted to ask here and -as it's of import-, that from your collective perhaps perspective i am new to all this; think terminology, technical apsects, esoterics and so on. Not new to listening though! Now was recently handed a pair of SRΛ Pro Classics, which blew me away.. just, no words.. i have since been rediscovering my favourite and not so favourite as it turns out tracks.
