ES are capacitive loads, next to no current needed for low frequency, but paralleling 2-3 will increase higher frequency current demand, lower the amp's slew rate limit for those with a fixed bias/limited output current

Good. Apparently shipping can be considered preventive maintenance for electrostatics (well, not really -- moreso a remedy for channel imbalance).

Not quite:p
Yeah I definitely lucked out, I told the NC meet I would try and bring a pair not realizing the extent of the back order. I tried all the US distributors and they said 6 months and Price Japan was like 3 months which was still not in time for April 19th. I responded to a few people selling here but they would go so quickly. I ended up making a wtb ad not really expecting anything and in two hours bam a hit from a fellow selling a pair he bought from headamp a couple months back. So I hope everyone will be able to enjoy them and the mk1 at the meet coming up

I have an idea. Send me your 009's for the meantime. While mine comes from PJ, change the shipping address to your location? So we both get to listen to some Stax. ?;)

I think you jest but I did just sell some SR-307's that were shipped to California; me and the buyer, via tracking watched them first go to a zip code near him in California and then, oddly, they were shipped all the way to the east coast (NC) where they sat for a few days and then were shipped all the back to California where they (thank god) finally found the right address. 

 

Strange...

post #1709 of 3314

There is a thread on the initial release of the 009's where people bought them from around the world and had it shipped out and this initiated and omitted channel imbalance issues. It happens. It's happened to me as well having bought a second hand but mint condition 404 from YJ and then bam, imbalance and eventually a dead left channel.

Hi , 

Yes, I put a dehumidifier next to my system stax.
