    The Stax thread (New)

    I had fine results with an srx mk3 and srd7 powered by an 80s luxman integrated amp.  No lives are at stake, with inexpensive gear you shouldn't feel compelled to move up the chain unnecessarily.

    Quote: Do you know what shills are?  Do you think that the "stax mafia" profits by all the work they do to help figure all this stuff out and share it freely?  Really?  Who are they shilling for?  Because it certainly wasn't the stax distributors, or stax japan.
