A general question about electrostatics

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a late 2012 IMac 27.  The stats mention 20 watts per channel audio.  I do not have a stereo system setup.  My only audio source is my IMac.  There is only a headphone jack on the rear.  Is there any way that a set of electrostatics scan be run from this?

Nope...no way no how...not remotely possible. :wink:

I've just been reading that the Stax SRS-2170 system can be driven from an iPod or PC/Mac.  I'll also quote this statement: >>> Want incredible sound from your iPad or iPod? Easy: presuming you've made good transfers, any 99¢ 3.5mm to RCA cord between your iPod and the back of any Stax amplifier will quickly send you to goosebump territory. Transducers this good quickly make you recognize just how misguided are audiophiles who waste their time chasing cables or magic power cords instead of just getting some good electrostatics.<<<   from this review :  http://kenrockwell.com/audio/stax/sr-lambda-pro.htm#comp.  

 

Incredible what a little due diligence can accomplish, eh MattTCG ?

 

But I would appreciate other comments.

 

Thanks.

Um...misguided audiophile here. Why don't you plug that Stax using any cable you like and get back to me on how you like the sound.

 

very best,

 

Matt

You need an amp.. THEN you can connect the amp to the computer. I'm going to quote your quote, " any 99¢ 3.5mm to RCA cord between your iPod and the back of any Stax amplifier" Read that part.
