Oldie Posted August 22, 2022 Report Share Posted August 22, 2022 @padami appreciate your reply and the tone even more, polite as it was In case you or others lack the attention span or desire to read through all this; i'm not sure if you misunderstood me, took the diplomatic approach regarding certain situations arising from certain grey market individuals, or if you were just defending your own view, which i respect entirely. I wasn't attacking the individual preference. There just is a problem when a collective of 'expert' individuals consciously, heavily influence a certain market. And not quite pro bono either, if you get me. Most especially when said influence revolves around an oddity, rather than what one should expect from a certain company. Now as to your reply (which again, i'm thankful for) in some detail: - Confusion as to whether it's a 007 'a' or 'mk1' absolutely, i don't follow revisions with the same gusto as others. I am aware that -as is said- ideally one wants to listen to a 70xxx serial, or a 71xxx right after. I thus specified as understandably some point of reference had to be given. Apologies nonetheless. Also for my being overly general/aloof regarding my impressions of it, but after lurking for years here, i do know whom i'm addressing; and that isn't the regular posters but the irregular viewers instead looking for information (rather than what 'x' person 'advises' them to buy). Sorry to be so blunt. The headphone has some obvious tendencies and some obvious area of focus everyone has read about. Stating them again only in my own words seemed pointless. I rather i focused on what no one at all appears to be saying. - You have a point regarding driving this thing, was surprised to see just how inefficient it is. I do however have an SRX-Plus (that if i may say so, is without certain errors and issues that the final revision was left with) that has been improved even further. It can drive these headphones well enough for me to have an opinion. - We will eschew the part where i give my credentials or pointlessly attempt to convince folks i'm not deaf. The remainder of your polite reply? Only reinstates what i said myself. - If you build a system around it. Sure i guess. I can build a system around a fart, could still give a balanced outcome. Eventually. Only with such a system, nothing else would ever sound quite as it should afterwards, now would it. Bringing us back to why one would ever invest so heavily for a sole, specific Stax headphone that sounds nothing like your typical Stax headphone anyway. Sounds like a logical thing to wonder. And my ideas on that. Bringing us, perhaps, to whether, or how come it's been so praised. Enter my view. And a self-censored one mind, as one could easily jump to more conclusions, like say whether maybe, total coincidence, equipment is sold (profit) for said headphone that certain same exact people are hyping; if again, one was so inclined to think upon. My view and again, not on the personal preference. Not quite. Much obliged to the moderator(s) for allowing a voice of dissent. Expected the harsher treatment if i'm to be honest. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
