Long awaited Smyth SVS Realiser NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE - Page 181

post #2701 of 2702

Regarding Stax - I don't own, nor have I tried the realizer. But I have a couple of thoughts..

 

  1. Very low distortion - we are talking about 0.1-0.3% 20-20kHz for the basic 207
  2. FR without extreme peaks and dips that are hard to equalize, as seen with many dynamics
  3. Treble extending all the way to 20 kHz, which add to spacial cues. 'Stats oftenmost have very impressive high treble extension
  4. Last, and most importantly, the 'stats I have tried (especially the lambdas) sound like speakers next to your ears. Try comparing that to hd800, which by itself tries to emulate a proper soundstage by displacement of the driver. I guess one would (ideally) want 2 uncolored planar wave units right next to the ears with the realizer for optimum results.

 

Just some thoughts.

The electrostatic headphones are lighter to wear then regular driver headphones.  I like the stax not because of sound but because of comfort.  They do sound good though.  When you wear headphones for 10 hours a day because you HAVE to then some priorities change.  With that said Im wearing dt770 right now because I do need a closed back headphone until I get into a quieter room.  I will be off the realizer as heavy usage in 2 weeks though.  The dt770 is pretty comfortable but they do hurt (sore around the head where they press) when you wear them so much.
