I'll arrive at 10:30 at Haneda. Lunch is possible (in the city?) but to make my 8pm flight I'll probably be leaving the city at no later than 6pm.
That's ok, Stax has seen my ugly face already :D.
You're kidding!? You're here for less than a day!? OK I'll block my day free and just do my own thing until you guys are done with Stax. Let me know where you are thereafter and I'll meet you there.
I'd be curious about what they feel is the main limiting factor in their headphone design - in terms of how far they can push the envelope on their flagship.
Personally I'm still waiting for something with higher performance than the 009.
I'm also curious about what they feel about people thinking that the original omegas are one of the best.
Also used two private lessons to cleanup my translation (Scott owes me), so at least there shouldn't misunderstandings this way across... Sending these tonight...
As discussed originally, nothing will be disclosed until reviewed and approved from Stax, which will take a while as I have a full hour of audio recording for the interview and some 20 minutes more for the tour... On the over hand, it's not like there was anything secret discussed so most of the talk will probably make it here. As currawong mentioned in the stax thread, we got interesting news however on how staxes are put together .
I wanted to thank Scott here for thinking out loud what we previously thought would be difficult to make happen, it went well and beyond all my hopes!
Well, with all that translation, maybe it will result in an SR010 coming out next month, then an SR011 out next year, with each new flagship being double the price of the preceding one?
But then again... maybe not.
