The Stax Thread III - Page 60

post #886 of 11209

I believe a dedicated music forum on head-fi would be useful now. Music keeps coming up in almost every thread.

The Castle remixes of the Iron Maiden albums are also pretty great.

You are right to be worried...  :biggrin:

I'm glad music isn't the primary purpose for all this stuff. :)) J/K.

post #889 of 11209

Me too!

I'd much rather listen to documentaries concerning goat ranchers in Montana.

Yeah, I got my Stax setup because listening to audiobooks just isn't the same with dynamics. You really need a big soundstage for those recordings!

Greatly mixed/mastered records by Kamelot  (power metal) is great with Stax.

post #892 of 11209

So many more Stax owners fans of metal than I expected ;). My collection of metal (is it?) resumes itself to "early" metallica (master of puppets / justice for all / ride the lightning), the black album... Haven't listened to these in some time, but I recall the black album not playing so well at loud volume with the 009/srm727.

 

Probably out of topic, but I discovered dream theatre through HDtracks (a dramatic turns of events), which I felt very cheesy and refreshingly rich at the same time. What kind of classification is this and, since the band seems to have evolved with the years, what records are worth exploring next?

Anathema seems pretty promising, started listening to resonance 2 (though with my HE-500). Never really got into dream theater either. What I have heard is decent just not wow.. Many seem to like it here around head-fi, though.

 

Who said Stax setup purely for gaming? Dat imaging :)

If you liked Dream Theatre but want a different flavor, check out The Winery Dogs .

Ohhh mannn Anathema brings back some memories, just rediscovered them.

 

I use Stax for gaming.

Of course, in your case you can change that $2000 to however much you paid for your SR-009s. :D 

 

I hooked up my SRM-212 to my PC soundcard with Dolby Headphone and the gaming experience was quite epic with my 202.

Not too mention the cost of the HV and my Master 7 -_-

I too am guilty of using my stax/t2 as a glorified sound card.

 

It looks stupid when I do it but people have no idea how awesome playing games with them is.
