This store has been mentioned before, but I wanted to show you their current display. Yodobashi Camera has an enormous store right next to Akihabara station in Tokyo. Akihabara itself is a geek-out heaven, with a lot of tiny specialist market stalls, small stores, and megastores, all focused on electronics of various types.
Yodobashi Camera has an acre-sized floor dedicated to audio, a big chunk of which is high-end audio. Tubes, cables, speakers, amps, turntables, you name it. They have a "mass-market" headphone wall with literally hundreds on display, with the ability to use their sources or your own; neat, huh? The also have a high-end headphone area. It's a little noisy, but you can sit and listen to your heart's content. If you're into Stax, see my post in the Stax thread..... enjoy!
