    The Headcase Stax thread

    You didn't do it right, when there's some disagreement between importers prices buy from the one offering the best price, if that's not possible, NEVER tell who's offering the good deal. These mofos always complain to the manufacturer who will threaten the one offering good deals, specially if in the same area like it's Portugal and Spain. As I see it those Danish dealers have met a favorable deal with Stax that allows them to offer generous discounts compared to the crappy dealers in Iberia who don't have large stock. For most of the Stax range they serve in a pre-order policy, you pay half the price, they order to factory, and a few weeks or months later, you get your cans and pay the remaining amount. In this fashion Stax can't offer any favorable discount to such importers, so the prices will always be higher than on "better" dealers.

    Your distributor and the Spanish one should take a look and learn, this is the EU and there's not much they can do to stop people purchasing from another EU country.

    It's a nice watch, I felt tempted by the review on Watchville by Fratello. I like that vintage vibe, it reminisces of the 50 fathoms. I wish it feels like that on the wrist. Let us know

    I'm having one of those days. Sadly nostalgic Santana - Moonflower [1977] I discovered yesterday that one can listen to Tidal lossless streaming using Audirvana+. Surprisingly the sporadic cuts went away. I won't dare to defend that sound quality is better, probably it's the same as using Chrome, but I'm finding it more enticing. I have yet to test if this way it's able to play gapless.
