Yeh I agree my first exposure to some modern Stax besides the 407, 507 was the Mk1's thanks to a mate of mine and they sounded extremely intimate. Funny enough we tried some general piano sonatas, classical beethoven stuff and few other modern pop and it sounded good with all of them I believe at the time we were using some 727's and I can't imagine how much better it would sound if he had a better dedicated stat amp as I heard that the Mk1's require some juice to get that sound just right.

Didn't like the 507's either.

I believe Audiocubes still has some headband replacements. Need to check.

Absolutely true!  One look at the prices and you will be shocked!

 

(No danger of electrical shock, though)

Are those ones partly made in China?

There are stats made in China?

Haha too funny that! It's also recommended to ground your wallet before any contact with Stax gear.

Not yet... But i hope if they do, It's not gonna be under the 'Stax Ltd.' brand.

No Stax product was ever made in China, even partly, Edifier isn't changing anything about this.

The kgss and the 717 are similar amplifiers. (4 stage amplifiers)

 

The kgsshv and the 727 are similar amplifiers except the kgsshv uses global feedback. (4 stage amplifiers)

 

If people want it, the next revision of the kgsshv boards will have the local/global feedback option.

 

Personally i like the sound of the global feedback version better.

 

 


Very interesting Kevin! Where can one obtain the schematics of SRM 727 amp? I would be really interested.

 

In the real life, what makes the differences between the Stax amps and the KG versions if the schemes are the same? What could be the flaws in the Stax designs making people prefer the KG versions?

 

Does someone know whether measures of these amplifiers are available?

 

Thank you very much for your help

 

All the best

 

Olivier

So, speaking of, was anything ever posted on the interview with Stax?  I think you attended, right?  I'm not sure if I missed it.

It's a work in progress... Have finished to translate the 1hour or so of interview to english + the discussion during the tour. Am waiting for amos / scott to polish that up before I send it back to stax. Shouldn't be much longer...

Which Stax model do you have?  I think you just had really bad luck...there are plenty of 30+ yr old Stax headphones with original headbands that work as new.

post #20623 of 24765

I bet it's not a Lambda pro or sig. That headband is rock solid for how light it is. The 407's have a junk plastic headband so I guess that it is Nova or newer.

post #20624 of 24765

It was a 404.
