That's the Stax Mafia walking past one of the output tubes there on the gantry....  
The "headband" design in interesting.  It's interesting to see a new approach.  In particular, I like the "clamp-force adjustment dial."   Looking at the simple, not-so-well-engineered headmount setup they use on the LCD's and HiFi Man headphones - well, it's good to see someone trying to focus more on the issue of "wearability."    I thought my Sennheiser HD-800's  had really well designed / super well made headband parts, and so did a pair of Sony MDR-SA5000's that I...
Here's my new transformer-based Stax "adapter" box- (technician not included)     ....and the amplifier to drive it  
I tried an SRD-7 adapter on a number of different amps - tube and solid state- using SR-007 and Lambda Signature 'phones.  I did hear differences between the amplifiers. Kind of the same differences I heard from those amplifiers when driving speakers.  Is the SRD-7 ALSO imparting a sonic character, in addition to what the amplifier brings to the party?  Yes, I would guess it does add some contribution to the sound.  Is an SRD-7 "more netural" than a Stax amp?  I don't know...
That also  which is the theoretical paper  http://www.princeton.edu/3D3A/PureStereo/Pure_Stereose4.html   links to http://masisaudio.com/   the Asia distributor for this system, also a US / Europe distributor as well http://www.theoretica.us/
Look into  http://www.princeton.edu/3D3A/PureStereo/Pure_Stereose4.html   http://masisaudio.com/bacch/thesolutions/bacchsp/   etc
 Goldpoint also has a 47 step attenuator; The mono units cost $136 each. The stereo units cost $246 each.  Heck of a bargain compared to some of these other prices. 
 Hahaha, not enough positions.  OK. Reminds me of a girl I used to date.  
  Do you know their name? What's your opinion of Goldpoint attenuators?
Responding to a few comments recently on Sennheiser HD-800's with an eye (ear?) to making some comparisons with Stax sound...   I used to have a pair of HD-800's. I have a kind of hyperacusis, which makes certain high frequency sounds painful at times; the HD-800's well known treble emphasis became quite unbearable for  me.  Aside from that, the sound of the HD-800 was quite transparent and wonderful and in my opinion the best non-electrostatic sound there is. HD-800's...
