Today was a very special day. They say, never meet your heroes but today I met the man, the myth, the Legend of the Spritzer. I flew down to Reykjavík to deliver the first production RR1 to ever leave

This has been a killer of a week for me so I'm late with the impressions.  Then all of sudden we had a holiday today so I finally have some free time.    I'm too lazy to find my camera so I'll take so

Finally she (in the middle, on the Prosecco) arrived from India. Surrounded by her new family.

Come on, the "outstanding" was obviously in response to Birgir saying he was going to get a pair.

Hi,

 

I’m Aumkar. I’m the guy behind the RR 1.

Yes, I will be sending Birgir a unit once our first batch is ready!

If this works out and is good, I'll most likely get a pair too.

Definitely appreciate the transparency from the manufacturer. My only concern at this point is the detachable cable. I'm not sure if high voltage bias lines, detachable cables, and aftermarket cable manufacturers that have no clue what they're doing are a good mix.

Otherwise looks very promising.

I agree but the system is fairly safe due to the orientation of the male and female. There's no real way to get shocked even if a certain Aftermarket cable builder screws up Bias with + or -. Let's say they manage the impossible and intentionally try to get shocked. Due to the inherent lack of current and thanks to our reflex action, you might get a cute shock which will only affect someone emotionally for their poor skill of Electronics handling. 

Thank you for your kind words. I am trying my best to get a unit out to Spritzer as soon as I can for the Stax community. I understand that there's a lot of crap coming out nowadays and it's hard to build trust. I am an enthusiast as well. My personal collection includes an original SR-1, Sigmas and many other vintages.

I'm excited for you as well.

Hi Aumkar Chandan,

Just curious. What did you use as a reference to tune the RR1?

Hi, 

I didn't have a reference per se. My main goal was to improve on the Low-Frequency extension compared to most STAX out there and we achieved that. Here are the graphs vs the 009. 
I wouldn't get into my subjective opinions but I've had two people, one 007 MK1 and MKII owner come and place an order on the spot and another 009 owner who also couldn't tell apart the 009 from the RR1 apart from the LF response being more extended on the RR1. 

Anyway,  here is the link with the Measurements (I have an upload limit here) - https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3rev8hq54sd3feu/AACb7Zs1DFcKZFYhs3co7Ecta?dl=0

Aumkar, welcome to the forum.  I went ahead and tagged you as a Member of the Trade and gave you a custom title to better identify you to the members as a representative of your company.  Enjoy your time here and best of luck with the launch of your headphones.
