You mean the Stax fart is dangerous for the transducers?

I have never heard of that.

Please explain how it would ruin my day?

You wouldn't have as it is pure and utter BS.

Because we like to keep up the illusion that pretty, expensive things don't fart.

For those with the dust issues, I've been covering my 009's with the Stax CPC-1 cover when not in use.

If you manage to get the diaphragm stuck to the stator you will have to repair it or live with lower quality sound.

They do. It's just that it smells like roses.

can you give me the dimension? i would like to know if it big enough for my woo double headphone stand.

 

thanks

I use the Stax plastic headphone covers for all of my headphones (and the Stax stands also).

post #20651 of 24765

I'd like to repeat pao_revolt's request.  It would be great if someone with the cover could provide its dimensions.  I have not been able to find this out on either the Stax site or the sites of a number of distributors.

post #20652 of 24765

I don't think the Stax cover maybe big enough for the double Woo stand judging from pictures. A cheaper solution which does the same thing, why not buy vinyl sleeves? Guard against dust, cheap to buy, anti-static, easily disposable if ripped and protects your headphones.

The Stax cover is 11.5 inches high, 8 inches wide, and opens to 5 inches thick, as best I can measure it with a tape measure. 

It's like a bag, so it puffs out, of course. It's a heavy duty plastic semi-opaque on one side, clear on the others, and says STAX on it in gold letters.

So, when auditioning headphones one of my basic tracks is 'Packt Like Sardines In A Crushed Tin Box' as the opening is a good indication of bass impact/precision... currently awaiting a back-order on purchased Sr-407's... and wondering how they will do.  Played through speakers, the impact is lost (it's not sub-sub bass/I would like to know what frequency it is, for reference) so headphones win on this frequency for me.  I know going into Stax that I won't find the 'thump' I sometimes love, which is okay with me, but would love anyone's opinion on the performance of Stax generally with this frequency...

I'm new to this thread,

What fet do the other Stax drivers use?

The AD822A is a relatively cheap chip with extramely slow slew rate.
