Yes, I am one of the lucky ones. Her looks is only half the story. She's also the most beautiful person on the inside I've ever met too. She is so good to me that it's absolutely embarrassing how pampered I am. :)

I always thought you were kind of precocious for a 2 yr-old.

Oh man, this is not an easy question to answer. I thought about it, and I ended up writing a very long reply, so I decided to post it as a separate thread in the Lounge area instead of making this thread more OT. Here's the link to the thread:

Hilarious! Are we still talking about the best headphones or the best woman ever made - or are they in fact the same....

Yes, but they are nothing alike--in both looks or personality. ;)

What ES amps will *not* drive these 'ultimate' high-end Stax well? There are plenty of Stax, and I assume other ES amps that you can find used, that sell for less than 1/2 the mentioned $5k entry point, even 1/10th that price. Jude should have done a dbl blind test, and determined just how little the difference would be.

 

Suppose I should start a thread in the DIY, but Jude mentioned he's more mobile now, and since there exist some small tube portable battery powered amps (GoVibe porta tube being contended make the AKG K1000 "sing"), why couldn't an ES battery powered portable be designed? Something probably the size of the SR71A, don't you think?

Electrostats need MUCH more power to drive than conventional dynamics

Somehow, my OP to this thread, as well as this quote below, will still not be enough for *some* to comprehend the points being made :(

 

This is what Jaben Australia recently posted, FYI "K1000" = AKG K1000 electrostatic 'earspeakers', infamous for their very high amplifier power requirements. Doesn't seem possible a portable battery powered tube amp of that relatively small size, could power, let alone make  the K1000 "sing" (and it's a SE 6.5.mm output jack, not designed as an electrostatic amp)

I was spending a bit of time in Jaben Singapore and Malaysia (at the KL AV show) and I noticed something...

The Go-Vibe Porta Tube is extremely popular.

 

The fame has even reached Japan!

One of the folks there bought one, loved it and through word of mouth the Singapore's stores' stock has been depleted! Almost every day I was there someone left disappointed because they couldn't get their hands on one.

 

Yet I've heard very little about it here, why restrict it to Asia?

 

Now is your chance to try out this amp to see what it's all about.

 

Here's some of the dirt:

  • There's a mini tube inside and you can see it glow!
  • It lasts for about 10 hours per charge
  • Very powerful, enough to make my K1000 sing!
  • Minimum microphonics on most headphones, they worked hard to get the kinks sorted!
  • Pictures and some impressions here: http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/562045/govibe-porta-tube

Hehe, I think you need to double check your sources of info lol :-). Some tiny bit of background reading on headphone technologies would not hurt either...
