I've been looking into buying a pair of STAX SRS-3050A from Price Japan and noticed that you can include a Churi CCW100W(voltage transformer) with the purchase. Now I know that I can get an international version STAX SRS-3050II but the Aus store that stocks this is asking for $2500 as opposed to $912+(transformer) for it. that's ~$1500 ($1300US). How does that make any sense?
Anyway, I guess other than my bitching about the price discrepency, the questions I have are
a) does the weak link in the stax headphone system become the Churi CCW100W voltage converter and will it affect the sound?
b) what is a good transformer to use for this system?
