We would never kill you, that's your wife's job and to do that slowly, without mercy. You may have thought that 120 dB SPL was the threshold of pain, guess what, thay can yell much louder than Bose Active Noice Cancelation can cope with.

We could talk about how much fun you could have with 650k capacitance. Have seen some really wicked videos with capacitors frying stuff wink.gif

Don't know how much voltage they deliver.. But it'll probably be lethal. I know the caps in my Stax amp are.

Probably even more dangerous, so dry your hair before strapping on electrostatics. :eek:

Welcome to my electric chair :evil: 

 

Well, as a matter of fact there are resistors between output and earspeakers to my knowledge.

 

Maybe I could have Gilbert make an e-stat amp or perhaps e-stat + dynamic amp based on an output transformer coupled amp, taking the output for the 'stat before the output transformers and the output for the dynamic part after the output transformer or something?

Whatever the value of the resistor, it must be high enough to limit the current flowing into one's body, in case of a mishap. I'm not sure it'll be high enough and still satisfy a set of cans. We need volunteers for some experiments. :evil:

Ask Gilbert to add a flyback transformer from an old tube TV's high voltage supply. :eek:

Thanks! It is my first ever review..

Lucky man!! as i heard those two are best sounding staxes ever, according to many...hope to hear one of them one day..and who knows get myself a sr009 myself with the right (hawaii) amp one day wink.gif or get the WEE from wooaudio and use my amp to drive them..
Once again..thanks for the nice words...

no prob man 

yeah i have the 009 and the 007 is the mk1 version, they are both great just different flavors 

i was reading a few post up and i vouch that getting shocked buy a stat amp isnt fun, my diy blue hawaii has the bias trim pots way down in it and i touched something by accident a week or so ago and got a good hit (im fine)

one of my buddy uses a wee with his amp to power a 007 and jade and it works well from what i can tell, might be good with your "pag" custom amp too

keep up the good work

@hifimanrookie There are no revisions of the 009 by the way.
