Thanks you for the answers :)

 

 

Well I think it will be enough for the soundstage

Hum, is a Schiit Bifrost a good choice for this headphone?


What about the quality of this converter?

I have a Modi 2 Uber and am very happy with it.

While I'm still struggling whether and how much the difference of a DAC for me really is, when I just installed my new Lynx Hilo (definitely in another price range...), I was blown away.

But I would say you would love the STAX with any Schiit DAC for sure.

Lately I've been using Beresford DACs with my Stax SRS-2170.
Their customer service is quite good.
For a while I used the Beresford Bushmaster II, approx. $300.
Lately I've used the Beresford Caiman II, approx. $400.
Either DAC is good enough for an SRS-2170.

I tried using the FiiO E17..........that DAC is not good enough, the Stax exposes it as a muddy, foggy sounding DAC, but the E17 is only $125

If you are looking to buy a new DAC I'd strongly recommend against the Beresford. Simply because the owner has a history of trying to scam head-fi and other forums.

Can a pair of SR-X be repaired by someone with no experience? I am always deeply suspicious of these "only a little problem, I would fix it myself but don't have time" ads. Here is a pair of SR-X for sale. The seller has new earpads, mylar and glue but wants to sell them as fixer uppers. Given he has plenty of other ads flipping gear I am thinking if the fix was easy it would be done by now:

The price is silly for a broken set and I already have a SRD-6SB so the only interest would be if the phones are fixable. Worth making an offer on or pass?

 

Thanks

It's possible, but not that easy.

Thanks for the input, I will pass.
