Let me provide two links to add to it.

1.

For the artist in you "billyearl" (and the rest of you all) here is a "blackened red-fish", black K-1000 and it is the only one. The Chef of this exquisite recipe is Headfier "Meyvn".
"Billyearl" your friend's "AduioD" remarks on the K-1000 are mostly in agreement with my findings. And our Chef is a Grado lover as well as a Senn lover (now that beats me, but I guess he is a Maharajah kind of guy like a lot of us).

it is black alright but not any darker sounding.

2.

To give you an idea of the experimentation I am about to go through please read Headfier's "Ferbose"
post on "jjcha"'s K-1000 appreciation thread.

(and Richter it is Ferbose not ""Verbose"")

Using the multi-track Sound Forge 9 along with the Ozone 4 plugging I will have Lynx2 B drive the sub-woofers, speakers and headphones and control and equalize the 3 amps involved independently and with Ozone 4 I will manipulate the nonlinear characteristics of the amps to fine tune this complex system.
Let God (I mean my Amon Zeus polymorphic rig test bed in my homonym thread) Help me.

I know this may be trivial....my modded SRM-001 is nothing like what the big STAXes. But this I am very certain of now - with all the caps and mods all cooked, the sound that I am getting from this baby is nothing short of eargasmic - so much so that I find little need to listen to my ER-4S rig which pales in contrast. Even my K701 (single ended amped) is incapable of emitting the lushness and realism projected by the modded SRM-001.

STAX rules!

Any ideas on the ear plugs? That coupling may need improving. Also I lost my original plugs is there any place to buy replacements? You are right these babies
smoke the Etys and for me maybe even the O2's.

You can try emailing STAX Japan directly. I have been lucky to keep my ear plugs within sight - as I can't imagine how difficult it will be if I lose them.

....even the O2s? now that's really something.

I call the SR-003 a Baby O2, kintsaki calls it the Omicron

"Alizee" (my son's French teacher) there is a post of mine showing the method she came up with to draw my son's attention to the class.

This was something pretty new for me, as I always start thinking about stuff that doesn't sound right, with the LNS I don't have this at all. I have this expensive SPL Phonitor sitting next to me with my RS1, and also a PS1000 and a K1000 on the way, and I'm starting to regret it all. Maybe I should'v just sticked with the LNS , ow well, hope when I sell it it won't cost me too much .

I have been looking for a Stax SR-30/40 frame, to use as a housing for Yamaha ortho drivers.
I found a Micro Seiki MS-2, does anyone know if this is the same size as a SR-30?
Thanks!!
post #10211 of 24765
They are roughly the same size but the drivers are a part of the chassis on the M-S and not modular like with the Stax.

Oh...thanks. So basically that makes it useless as an ortho fosterphone im guessing?
post #10213 of 24765
Maybe not useless but much harder to work with.

Thanks, I think its best I hold out for the SR frames then.

EDIT: In fact since this is the Stax thread. If anyone here has a SR-30 or SR-40, or similar headphone. PM me, id like to buy it .
Thanks

Kind words! Thanks a lot!
I see myself as having a positive and kind spirit most of the time, and certainly nice to see others having the same opinion.

Both links added! Thanks
