Manufacture dates of Senn [and Stax] Stats - Page 3

post #31 of 32
Another gem from my (sadly picture-only) collection




Excuse my some-what paraphrased/literal translation. I will try to remain as faithful to the original meaning

Two characters in the decorated oval literally mean:
The very best

Title says:
The very pinnacle of German technology and artistic achievement -
An electrostatic headphone system of the highest artistic quality


Words on the right of HEV90 says:
An all tube headphone amplifier with the world's best D/A converter (in its time).

Boxed caption on the left says:
Limited production of 300 sets worldwide.


The bit about world's best DAC got me chuckling

There haven't been many around lately as the rare Stax market has been a bit dead lately. If one does show up all hell will break loose even though people know the risks involved.

The dac is pretty good, bitstream and not some delta/sigma crap, but like everything else in the HEV90 is is cheap. There are 500$ tube amps made in China that have better parts then the HEV90. Wima's for coupling when they could have used the Vishay MKP's for less money...
