I am torn between waiting for the DX50, buying the Sony PHA1 or even that Venturecraft Soundroid... aand for this one.

However, I am looking forward to your impressions in this forum. smily_headphones1.gif

Nice pics and report!

Anyone wondered what the Carry SEI was doing at the stax booth? Could it be driving the 009 through a wee?

Stax won't be happy to hear about that.

Do Stax have some kind of rule in place for dealers regarding demonstrating their products?

I don't think so... It is advertising the 009 as well...

Stax products should only be used with Stax amplification is pretty much their mantra.

That makes sense.  Was wondering if it was a dealer or an official Stax company employee.  From the other Japanese trade event pics I've seen, Stax earspeakers seem to only be demoed with Stax amps.

 

Would have been interesting to hear the 009+WEE+Cary.  I'm surprised they just didn't use the 727II.

 They are from Music By Design, the Singapore authorized dealer for Stax (http://www.stax.co.jp/Export/Distributor-Singapore.html)

 

If I remember correctly, they paired the Stax Omega MK2 with 727II and I didn't quite like the sound though as it is sound warm and subdued, much prefer the Stax 507.

so many brands I have never heard of. In the US, is there a place close to Los Angeles, California, sales some of these brands?
