Amplifier
These are in mint condition, if you bought the one for sale on the site for USD3,000, it would be exactly the same.

Miscellaneous:

I got these mainly to determine for myself all the fuss about the STAX sound. And i was not disappointed. This setup ranks up there with the HE1000 and HD800 driven by a TOTL Amp and DAC.

The amp is a high current version of the KGST built by Birgir (Mjolnir Audio) to output higher amperage in order to drive the notoriously inefficient SR007.
 

The SR007 has the same mod as Bob Katz's SR007, and was very highly praised by Tyll in Big Sound.
 
"The problem I have with the SR-007 and SR-009 is that the 009 is too bright, and the 007 is too rolled off—fireworks or murky water seems the choice. I previously gushed over the 009, but having had the opportunity to listen to them side by side has me preferring the more subdued character of the 007. Even though it's a bit too low in level, I find the 007 treble response more articulate and smooth than the 009.
 
Such were my thoughts untill Bob showed up.
 
Bob Katz, world renown mastering engineer, came to Big Sound armed with—among many other things—his personal pair of modified Stax SR-007 headphones. When I plugged them in my jaw dropped—this is what I want to hear from an electrostatic can. Brilliantly articulate and fast, but smooth as a baby's buttocks. The modification he used is fairly simple to implement. Yes please, I'll take the modified SR-007 all day long."
 


As per above, paypal fees and shipping is covered in the price. (Do note the boxes for the SR007 and KGST are huge and pretty damn heavy). Most of my trades are overseas based (Check my feedback), and i pack my stuff as if they're Faberge Eggs, so rest assured i know what im doing. Pictures of the packaging will be sent to you before i ship them out.

I would much prefer to sell them as a set. If you want them individually, feel free to offer me. Trades for the items in the list below preferred.

Possible trades:
