Need to know the dimmensions for a couplee electroatactic headphones amplifiers

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi guys.

 

Finally after thinking a complementary models for my HD800 & WA2 I,ve decided to start with electrostactic headphones -the DAC I own allows to connect 2 differents integrated amps for its RCA analoge outputs- and a couple days ago I,ve acquired a Stax SR-009. Now Im looking for an amplifier for it but I cant get the dimmensions for two models because my equipment rack is not very large and deep and I,d need to know it before buy.

I,d like to know someting about dimmensions of  The Aristaeus and Electra from EC.

 

Does someone knows the size of these amps?

 

Another question :

 

Do you think WA GES -no choice for WES by the dimmensions-  is capable to drive the SR-009 with full guarantee and satisfacction?

 

SPL always moderate...

 

Thank you very much

I cant understand why the weight and dimensions are not on the product page....

the Aristaeus box (both amp and PSU) is about 9" square, and 2" tall.  The feet add another 1/2" in height, and on the amp box, the tubes will add about 3" more.  The combined weight of both the amp/PSU is about 15lb

The GES drives the 009 very well indeed! :)

 

Just be sure to remove the 12bz7 tubes that is stock and swap in some good 12ax7 tubes instead. See my post halfway down this page; http://www.head-fi.org/t/569024/question-about-amps-for-the-stax-sr-009/195#post_8669102

Thank you very much Justin. I was near to be crazy looking for the Aristaeus dimensions. So I live in Europe and there is a diferent metric system here, then I understand the total height -there is not problems with width and deep- is:

 

Amp----> 2"

PSU----> 2"

Amp feet -->1/2"

PSU feet -->1/2"

Tubes---> 3"

------------------------------

TOTAL---> 8"

 

Please answer me that's not correct and I making a mistake . I have 7 1/2" 

I was thinking to put amp over PSU because there is only one free shelf in audio rack . Is that possible? Should be problems about heat or magnetic fields or something similar?

 

Another question:

How long time after the pre order you estimate to build the amp?

 

Thank you very much. Apologizes for my bad English.

Thank you, Pettnolf:

 

I own the WA2 OTL & Senn HD800 like dynamic set and I think GES has identical chasis. So I'm going right now to read the page you have indicated.

 

Thanks again

sorry, it's probably only going to be 7.5" if the feet are left off.  I wouldnt recommend stacking the PSU/Amp anyway, though you can do it.  the issue wouldnt be with heat (the PSU runs cool) but with magnetic fields.
