  1. RIP some fuck or another

    Saw Tom's 3rd to last show at the Hollywood Bowl last Thurs, been listening to nothing but his music since. They were great live, not a single filler song for the 2+ hours and they could have played another hour worth of singles. They did a 12 min version of 'Good to Be King' that was incredible. RIP Tom Petty.

    IMO the $55k one sounded about on par with most Lambdas and was beat out in a back to back against the L700 and embarrassed by the 007/009/HE-1. Those who complain about stats lacking impact would hate to hear that one. If that's the absolute best Fang could pull off, I'm afraid this won't be my cup of tea, either. It seems like his new business plan is to just release really expensive stuff to fool people into thinking HFM is on par with the best efforts from the likes of Stax and Senn, but I think his old model of releasing affordable boutique HPs from China made more sense.

    Went to game 1 with my friend who's a Clippers fan. My first time seeing the Jazz and I picked one hell of a game to go to! Bummed about Gobert getting hurt 17 sec into the game. Here's the game winner from my POV

    Let's go Jazz! Can't wait for the national audience to see how special Gobert is. I'll be at Game 1 in LA.
  7. The Headcase Stax thread

    I usually get most of it off by scraping a scalpel or credit card across the plastic.

  9. The Headcase Stax thread

    Speaking of measurements, just how much roll off are we talking at 20kHz and at what SPL?
  10. The Headcase Stax thread

    The email I sent you some time back should have pretty accurate dimensions. Birgir, how can you tell the diaphragm isn't gold plated? The sputtered coating should be so sparse as to be almost invisible in order to get really high resistance. Did they use graphite instead?
  11. Happy Birthday, Birgir!!

    Happy bday have fun with those drivers

    It'll be interesting to see how people take this Durant has been pampered by the media his entire career, westbrook has always been the fall guy. If people turn on him, I don’t think he’ll take it well. He has super thin skin. This is 10x worse than what people got mad at LeBron about. You just joined the best regular season team of all time AND it’s the team that just took you out of the playoffs in heartbreaking fashion. A large part of the reason that even happened is because Durant played like crap. I feel bad for OKC fans. This would be like Karl leaving my Jazz in his prime to join the Bulls after the 97 finals. An MVP joining the best team in the league after losing to them. I’ve always said that it’s the players’ right to join any team they want, this is just kinda sad imo.

    Thanks for the EtherE impressions, that's pretty much how I heard them too. They remind me much more of the KingSounds than Stax in terms of sound signature.
  14. Is there anything like that available for a small DIY Stax amp? Say, +/-200V
  15. Which doesn't really mean anything on its own. So are most of the PCBs for parts inside your cutting edge computer or cell phone. Just because something is made in China doesn't mean it's low quality, it's more about what you're willing to pay. In many (most) instances now, China actually has the resources to provide superior manufacturing, you just can't expect rock bottom prices. The 80s are over.
