The Headcase Stax thread

Does anybody have a source for the female gold plated tulip sockets used in the teflon Stax jacks? I've scoured the internet looking for them and I guess I just don't know what to call them because I'm not finding anything.

Those will work perfectly. 

As for the football, yeah it is impressive but goes to show what you can do if you really want something.  One funny post I saw was wondering about the current GDP numbers as 10% of the nation will be in France for the flipping game.  There is already talk of leasing a fleet of planes to get as many people over there as we can...  :P

LOL at the Icelandic commentator completely losing his shit on the last minute winner. Well deserved.

Yes that's very good.  Trouble is there are portents for big things in Iceland just now,apparently the Hekla volcano is getting a bit tetchy.

I'm more worried about Katla than Hekla to be honest.  Katla is overdue (hasn't erupted in 98 years) and given that it is covered by a large glacier unlike Hekla... it would mean a lot of ash in the sky.  It's also a very big volcano so if it goes, things will not be pretty.

Anyone have any thoughts on the Lambda Nova Signature? I think I recall reading that these are one of the best Lambdas but I don't remember where. I've got my eye on a pair that looks to be in a little rough condition, but I'm thinking of shooting a low offer to the seller and making a project out of them. That is of course only if they have merit in comparison to my current Lambda Normal Bias dominated setup.

Also anybody see that SR-007 and SRM-717 combo that's on ebay for $1899? Looks kinda suspect since the seller won't accept paypal, but if anybody is in the UK and can check them out in person before buying it looks like a hell of a deal.

He was selling it for $1699 before, but those sellers fell through because of the "no paypal".

edit: Oh, the new listing includes free shipping that the previous two didn't which explains the price difference.

I had thought they were priced at $1699 but I assumed that I had misremembered it when I saw them at $1899. Still seems like a killer deal assuming there is anyone over there that isn't in full scale panic mode over the possible economic fallout of Brexit.

The Lambda Nova is excellent, nothing short of it.  A guy came from Denmark 10 days ago to pickup an amp in person and we naturally made whole listening session out of it.  He compared pretty much all of the Lambdas and the LNS was a stand out success.  Funny though, he wanted to try the SR-404 (as he has one as well) and my reply...which one?  I have three....  :D  SR-404, SR-SC1 and SR-404LE...

Well done Iceland, you play excellent football without the play acting cheating certain other teams do.

As for England, they are over paid, over rated arseholes and must be made to take a huge pay cut.

I prefer to watch Rugby League than Football, but I do like to watch well played football, so I enjoyed the way Iceland played, with no going down without being touched like most of these so called top players do.

Anyway, I very much hope Iceland go on and win the comp.

You mean... (gasp) England play like italy..?

 

Yeah England are getting as bad as Italy, which I find annoying as fuck, cheating bastards, but unfortunately a lot of teams are now using those tactics. However I've not seen Iceland use those tactics, which is why I hope they do well.

Anyway with this being the Stax thread I'll say no more.
