Btw, Justin from HeadAmp agrees with me:

the Stax cable is made that way for a reason, for low capacitance.  aftermarket cables often don't have any engineering to support the designs.  i think the stock Audeze cable is well made and there is no reason to change it.

You missed the point.

 

With your thinking you could just take again, say, DHC cables and stick it on the Stax.

Which you can't.

 

We can have disagreeing opinons on the issue, Justin doesn't believe in cable as is.

(he recommends plain TecNec) comparatively to boutique cable.

 

Also, there's no objective evidence that supports cable's making a difference. (SORRY!).

 

So it's simply going to differ person to person.

 

I was just correcting you on why the Stax don't use aftermarket cables.

Uh no. I said the Stax cables are a similar design to the Audeze cables and no one complains about the design of them. IOW, this design is a good design that doesn't need to be changed out on either headphone.

Corrected. However from my perspective you implied it.

"which no one who has a $5,000. Stax headphone seems to complain about".

 

There are no options for aftermarket cabling for Stax. Period.

 

Stax have specific requirement for capacitance, hence the design. 

 

However the same doesn't apply for LCD's. Hence choices.

 

If I implied that the design was flawed or anything similar, I apologize.

 

Just because Stax makes a design a certain way doesn't make it ideally applicable across the board. And contrary designs aren't inherently less efficient.

 

LCD's or any other planar/dynamic are not Stax. They do not fundamentally need that design.

 

 

Hence again, not being able to stick DHC cables onto a Stax headphone.

 

And again, there's no evidence to suggest cables make a difference anyway.

 

Semantic of sorts.

Um, wasn't this the Lyr tube rolling thread at some point in time? Just checkin'.

I have no desire to enter this argument.  However:

 

This picture shows the rosewood most naturally...

 

 

 

The Rosewood is darker in real life than the pictures.  The flash lightens it up.

 

 

Q-Audio Cable, Brown Silk...Steve Eddy is now only offering cables in silk...

 

I'll let you decide...

I had to take mine out.

Although I liked them, I was getting fatigue.

Went back to the D's and now  it's silky smooth.

Might just be my hearing
