Question about vintage stax:
Some months back, someone asked if anyone used vintage Stax with their vintage amp. I do; I have an SRD-7 energizer driving some hard-worn SR-X Mk3's. I think they sound great, although I've had a couple of people ask if they're part of a Steampunk costume. (Round metal ear cups, leather band, cloth-covered cable... and high voltage! I guess they are steampunky...)
Someone mentioned something about a mod for the SRD-7 that would give you a high bias and a low bias jack? That would be pretty great... is there any other information about that around?
As a note, I have the Marantz Electrostatic headphones and energizer. They look really cool, and match the gear, but clamp too hard and sound lousy compared to the Stax. Give them a pass.
