I  do not believe it will drive the Stax headphones. You may damage your amp trying to do that.

Ok.  That's kinda what I thought, but I thought I'd ask.  I will stick with what I have for the Stax or maybe a Mini Torii II would do it...ouch the wallet just kicked me.

Ouch!!!  I tried to look the LL II up and my wallet put me in a head lock and made me promise never to try it again.  biggrin.gif

Although..., oh crap now you have me thinking, I could get it and put a normal bias and a pro bias in it and get a new set of Stax (007 or 009)...hhmmm.

We got another 22 inches of snow over the last couple of days. Nothing to do but listen to headphones!

The Roseau force field is in effect so the snow stayed show of us.  The got nine inches by the cities I heard.  I was just out riding the motorcycle today (was about 37 degrees).  I am SLOOOOWLY moving up the list...should be another four weeks for mine to ship I hope.  Maybe sooner if they turn up the juice.

Twist off beer caps cover my headphone jack wells.  MGD looks good, as does the Coor's Banquet, maybe Dad's rootbeer next.   It's easy to change styles.  I really like the Taboo MKIII with the standard base you have.  A customer of mine gave me a Sansui TU-7900 receiver with the white background and black faceplate.  It really goes well with my Decware system!  I have been having a blast going through the thrift store bins and I have picked up some great albums for like $.50.  The Santana Abraxis album is my latest find.  I bought a Spin Clean record cleaner and I highly recommend something to clean the vinyl grooves, it brings back all the fidelity.  That MKIII with the standard base is classic, good choice.

Awesome review. I used to own the V200 so hearing about the improvements makes me want this now. :) Might be reaching for the Credit Card... Now seriously, I have been pondering between this and the GS-X MK2, but might save a penny and have some tube fun. Not sure if anyone actually compared the two...

..."Tease Me...Please Me".....see, even the Scorpions want to Taboo MK III after Frank's review! (They sure sound good right now on the MK III and the HD800's! biggrin.gif )

 

Great job on the review, Frank! Glad to see your by-line rolling!

Frank, I also enjoyed your review.  I'm also pleased that I have a few of the same recordings you used for reference.  I have had similar experiences to yours -- I am often working while listening and I have found myself stopped and just staring off in the distance comletely engrossed in the music.  I definitely love my Taboo and its not even broke in yet.

 

You mentioned that you have also heard the LCD-3 with the Taboo.  Was there any difference in synergy between the LCD-2 and LCD-3?  Your comments on the synergy with the HD800 coupled with my extremely positive experience with the AKG 702 have definitely moved the HD800 up on my Want List.  

 

Thanks for all the work Frank!
