I see. Still, more clever than the usual broken English madness that they usually go with.

I will agree that it is better as well. But for an Omega 2 it really needs something more powerful than a 323 to sound a great deal better than a Lambda. Don't get me wrong, it of course sounds better but in my opinion not worth the price difference. If you are getting an Omega 2 get a 717 or better.

Thanks for the pics of the Pawel box.  Certainly the same idea as the Stax boxes but with no trimpots in sight, I wonder how they are adjusted... 

 

I like that Malvalve amp but how it sounds all depends on how the electrostatic output is handled.

Ok, that made me laugh.  Where is the facepalm smiley when you need it...

My Stax extension cable (SRE-725 I think) is black, ergo vis a vis the blacks are more blacker with it in place o2smile.gif

Yeah, I refrained from saying anything the comment was just so inane.  And yes I have an extension cable and have used it.  There is absolutely no difference.

The extension cable makes my headphones sound more extended.

post #18263 of 24765

Well, it may depend on how old you are... let me just say that  at least with the BHSE I can hear some brightness when I use it, which is no longer there when the extension cable is paired with the WES.

It increases the depth of soundstage on mine and really bring out the mids. For serious, the change is like night and day. wink.gif

Wait, you stop hearing brightness on the BHSE when you use an extension cable on the WES?

 

Did I just read that right?

well considering the ESP950 walks all over the lambda series..this is not too hard to fathom.

So you're saying the extension cable affects sound quality as much as a change in amplifier does?

 

I'm 26, by the way.  Am I too young or too old to hear the difference?  Please tell me, I'm dying to know.

I find the Stax extension cord (even the short one) degrades the sound (bass is not as transparent). I found this was true with my Lambdas and 007s years ago and 009s now.

It's a pain because it's only an approx 8-foot+ cable, but I put up with it to avoid muddy sonics.

post #18269 of 24765

When you use an extension cable, the sound particles have to travel much farther, and when they do some of them get weaker so the sound isn't as clear.

Dammit, I spit milk and cheerios on to my keyboard. Thanks a whole lot.
