    The Stax Thread III

    Hello again, I'm looking to upgrade my DAC. Is there anything recommended for SR007's that is below $500? I'm willing to buy used.

    Just get the most expensive one. It sounds like you want to and can afford it. Or you could get a cheaper amp and buy the SR007's with the extra money.

    I studied Voiles in my intro music class last semester! And I have a song like that that was quite sibilant before I got the SR007. This: The constant snare and hi hat sounds echoing were brutal on HD800's, and LC2's didn't capture the ambience of the song.

    I was literally about to ask about DAC's when I saw this. And funny thing is, I have the Modi Multibit, too. @VRacer-111 what differences can you hear between a lesser DAC such as mine and a ~$500 one?

    Right on. None of us need $2k headphones and amps lol. But the gear part of audiophiledom is something so visceral that appeals to humans' desire to always want more and never stop; it's truly addicting. Philosophizing aside, what more do I have to gain from going from my modded T1 to a...

    Do you guys EQ your stax? if so, what do you use? Would a simple rackmounted EQ like this work? https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/FBQ800 Or would an audiophile specific eq be better?

    OK, I see now. So basically a preamp is a glorified control box with volume :D

    Thanks for clarifying that. I never was really sure what preamps were for. I tried it out with the two amps and it got real fuzzy real fast. I could try tube rolling the Lyr to see if it makes it better, who knows what can happen. Can messing around with the balance between the volumes of the...

    I have a question about preamps. Is there any reason why I would want to use an amp with preamp outs (Lyr 2) with another amp (the T1)? I've heard it just adds more tube flavor to the sound, but IDK for sure. Also, what is the use for the parallel RCA's on the T1?
