I wasn't super stoked on the HE-6 as well. I heard the HE-6 paired with an RSA Darkstar in balanced mode and it sounded a bit too bright even with the pleather pads. Although its price is still fairly reasonable.

Oh gawd that overly expensive headphone amplifier.......Boris please make Project-IA sound awesome and prove to these ridiculous companies that they don't need to charge $3500 USD for a silly headphone amplifier.

I can't comment on it since I haven't heard every Staxes in their line up.

I've heard the SR-009 which I find absolutely sublime, the SR-007mk2 which I found a bit less and the SRS-002 System (the in-ear electrostat IEM + amp combo) in which I thought it had a very fragile cable, weird fit (almost like FAD Piano Fortes), inexistant bass response (maybe it was the fit?) but the cleanest and the most responsive sound I have heard on an IEM. I will even say that it beats the FitEar TG334 in terms of cleanliness and transient response.

Borisu put everyone to shame :)

 

IIRC, most of production went into the chassis. Still one expensive amp.

Well there are many, many, many rich people in Jakarta that are willing to throw money in the air. Also, it was paired with a Calyx Femto DAC, that alone is worth $7k.

At about the 3:30 mark. 

 

I'm sitting here thinking that he has never heard anything past his sponsored KRK 8400's as he talks about headphones lack of power or oomph.

he will

 

from what I heard from obobskivich, it's on the smaller side. Though he was comparing it to some expansive phones for me. I can go back and look at the messages he sent me if you want.

Muppet has a few comments on that. She likes it and sees it as a very competetive electro stat for the price you can get it at. I don't remember what else she said.

Good night world.

Oh I agree with you.

 

I'm only able to play with this cool stuff without going to meets due to my previous review credentials. And even then its not a lot of summit fi stuff. Most stuff I get is affordable stuff.
