The Stax Thread III - Page 71

post #1051 of 10678

Same here. I love the SR-009s with metal. Marginally more than the 7MKIs. It was surprising to me as I didn't like other neutral headphones with metal, such as the HD800s.

 

The debate regarding tonality cannot be decided on either side. The transducer is as much responsible for end result tonality as is the rest of the downstream - all of it. I am very pleased with my SR009s atm, but will see what changes when I get my KGSSHV.

Though I spend most of my time with then listening to metal. They are absolutely stunning with metal

 

Completely agreed here too...I listen mostly to rock, prog rock, hard rock, metal and a lot of jazz (with some classical sprinkled in) and the SR-009s sound absolutely stunning with all of these genres.

I don't have the 009's but I love the stats with metal in general. Just love metal.

I have a last minute trip to Nagoya and figured I'd try to find some more Stax. I've been to Tokyo many times and am looking for a used shop similar to Audio Union. Any leads?

Where do you generally range on the pot-meter with your t1 and lambda models?

Does anyone find the dual volume controls on the KGSS a pain or is it easy to get used to?

post #1057 of 10678

It seems pretty useful for imbalances which might arise. If you use things like replaygain then it's pretty manageable to set it once and only once

Didn't think but could use my pre-amp to adjust the volume.

On my modified T1 and Lambda Signatures: 10-12. Beyond 1 it's definitely too much for me.

Yeah, that's what I'd personally consider fairly loud listening. I'm more like 9-11 most of the time. 12 is cranking it, even for dynamic recordings. Just wanted to hear from some others..

The tonality of the 007 is more distinctive, that is to say less neutral, than that of the 009.

Minor annoyance but nothing really.  I set it then forget about it and use volume control from foobar.

Should we join forces DefQon and develop a strategy to land both?  Anyone else want to join?  Collective global ownership?  Could be a cool new model.
