I already own a set of orthodynamics (modded T50RPs) and love the smoothness of them, as well as a set of dynamic headphones (woodied magnum v3), and love the punch and attack of them, so I am looking into the third technology, the electrostatics.
I listen mostly to rock (grunge, classic, garage, rap metal), post rock, a little bit of Jazz, 90's britpop, and is starting to learn Reggae.
Some one recommended the Stax 2020 system, and I have been looking into to SR5R (not sure which amp/adaptor) and the Koss ESP-950. Could you guys recommend a system for me? My budget is around $500, and I do not mind having second hand stuff at all, as long as they are of good condition (no cracks, functions perfect, etc ...)
