    The Stax Thread III

    The mod is SO EASY if you are even a beginner at soldering. There are good tutorials you can find with a search. It took me about 30 minutes. The only thing I would add to the instructions is that if you get one with the older boards, the resistors you need to remove are laminated to the board...

    The Stax Thread III

    The 353x manual says "Max. Input Level: 30V (at minimum volume level)". That's the only number that matters: don't exceed 30V. Anything lower than that is perfectly cromulent, so long as you're getting enough volume at the headphones. If you want to experiment, do you have a headphone amp you...

    The Stax Thread III

    Stax started selling electrostats in 1960. That means we're 58 years into their dastardly 60-year plan to get all of the money. The plan was to place an electrostat in every household, so everyone would be way too engrossed in their music to resist them. It would have worked too, if it wasn't...

    The Stax Thread III

    The funny thing is that I would describe the benefits of solid state amps in exactly the same terms as you guys are describing tubes! SS has a more direct connection to the music, it sounds more natural, whereas tubes are veiled and muddy and get in the way of the pure sound to me. That's an...

    The Stax Thread III

    I'm thinking about replacing the earpads on my Lambda Signature Pro, because they're really old, but at the same time: if it ain't broke, don't fix it, and they ain't exactly "broke." They still sound fantastic, of course, even though the pads don't make a seal even a little bit (in contrast my...

    Audio Technica AD"2700" / custom cable

    IMO they sound exactly like how the AD2000 is described in reviews. Bass is the most important part of the range to me, and the 2700 doesn't have much of a thump to them, but they go all the way down and they're extremely fast and articulate doing it, they "bloom" hardly more than my...
