Yes, unfortunately that cable seems to be no longer available.

Perhaps not at Audiocubes but I did purchase one from Yama's a few months ago for about $65.00 USD.

I see you've got your priorities straight.

Might as well pay another 10k to have the retrofitted/hardwired into you.

Ahh yes, the Patrick82 technique. I can only imagine the sonic revealations that would give.

With some "luck" I'm adding reply no 999


(well, as an Omega 2 & 4070 + 007T-2 owner I may "qualify" for this ??

Amazing gear! You have to post pictures!
post #1003 of 2675
Milkpowder,

theres nothing special to show, just an ordinary O2 with black leather ear covers and an 4070
... a.. yes, the 007-T-2 is also black. ( I guess, that's why the O2 appearently is black, as I bought it a set - my previous O2 was brown)

(The SOUND, however, I can assure you, is as colourful as it has to be )

Urs

Sorry I haven't got a Digicamera

How does the 4070 go with the 007t? Have you compared it with the sound out of a solid state amp?
post #1005 of 2675
Carl,

No, I never used an ss amp with the "higher" Staxes.
It's about 7 or 8 years since a sold my ss Stax system (can't recall the type)

As I judge it, the 4070 matches well with the 007T2; for my ears, the O2 is somewhat warmer, silkier in sound than the 4070 .
I DO prefer the O2 sound, but the singular reason to have the 4070 as well was the better sound insulation
Also -from hearsay - the tube amps reportedly are "warmer" than the ss amps.
From this I would conculde, that the 4070 would rather enforce this tendency of "more brilliant" (as not to say "sharpness") so for me this combination is optimal.

Urs

BTW: I'm an analoge & tube supporter, even though most of my (NAIM) system is ordinary ss

but the singular reason to have the 4070 as well was the better sound insulation - actually I correct my earlier statements, that the ATH L-3000 would isolate MUCH better - it is somewhat better, but not enough to sacrifice the quality of sound. Meaning IMHO the L-3000 has no chance against the 4070 or of course the O2
