@ Gsteinb88, I found this
auction. Is this what you were talking about? Why is it always said in the same breath as the K 1000 (right?) "earspeakers"? Those components would also work for me right? Is it like two components?
Furthermore, I can't seem to find any info on the Zhaolu DAC upon google search. Can you point me to their site or a review or something?
Thanks again for the help!
Thats the amplifier, you need a pair of earspeakers to go with. Unfortunatly, there are no lambda pro's on ebay right now, excepting the one that needs recabling. There is a lambda pro signature with 2 amps, but its likely that that will go well out of your price range.
As to the zhaolu dac, their website is www.diykits.com.hk
and you can find reviews all around this site, the search is your friend on this one (or your enemy, considering the number of threads its going to pull up).
Also, one last thing, the k1000 are "earspeakers" in the sense that they are pretty much speakers that aim at your ears directly. Stax uses the word earspeakers simply as another word for electrostatic headphones, which you a different principle to create sound, a charged mylar diaphram between two metal grills, which pull the mylar back and forth.
Best of luck finding a setup you like
