You are right as all you say is good. No intend to patronize you at all, just a bad day at work.
Apology for my comment on your thread, I shall remove it.
(deleted a bunch of technical crap, never mind).
Just one more general comment to this post:
Not far above you conclude:
"The openness and highly detailed output from the mods above might not suite some especially if they are using the latest top end Stax(too much detail) ."
Really? There is such a thing as too much detail?
But else where you discuss these mods are to improve detail and clarity. This is contradictory.
"A way round this is to re install the feedback to the input circuit please note this is not the mods as above but also re-instating the small value capacitors which existed in the 717 ..."
Now continuing you suggest that for good sound to partly restore the amp back to its original configuration add backward mods towards the 717 and for "best reproduction" mod the amp again and buy expensive high quality parts, etc.
This does not make sense.
