    Stax SR-L300 Impressions Thread

    Aww man, sorry to hear you sold your Stax gear, but I completely understand! At least you still have your Purplehearts, I listen to mine on a daily basis and use my L700's for special occasions :) PH's are on the short-short list of headphones I'll never sell.

    Oh, I already have an SRM-1 of my own, was just giving a little comparison to the one higher Energiser I also own. Between Padam and Jim, you've received solid advice and more experience than I could contribute. I DO think SRM-1 is a very competent entry energiser for those with limited funds...

    Can't compare those specific energisers, but my impressions with my L700 Mk 1 with the ones i have...... 252S is sure an okay starting point for what it was at the time I bought it. SRM-1/MK-2 definitely steps up the detail vs 252S, though my particular unit sounds a touch bass-light and may...

    Yeah, I have horrible hearing and bad tinnitus as well. There's good news....after *cough* enough years with tinnitus, your brain will eventually do its' own version of "noise cancelling" and largely ignore it. I only hear the ringing now if I suddenly remember I have it (LOL yes, I'm serious)...

    Stax SR-L300 Impressions Thread

    I'll never get rid of my Stax, obviously (SR207 and L700). But in addition, the HPs in my current collection I'd also never get rid of are HD 600 and HD6XX (with custom Cardas 1/4" cable and Cardas XLR cable) and my Fostex TH-X00 Purplehearts (Lawton driver dampening and ZMF pads). Everything...

    There's no such thing as "bad" Stax :) Enjoy your new toys when they arrive!

    Ah, thanks for that! Sadly, my chances of being able to afford a KG amp in the future are quite slim. I'm still holding on to my SRM-1 MK2, but mostly just because it has one Normal Bias output and I'd like to retain that capability if I ever run across older Staxes in the future. 353X is the...

    I only own 2 Stax models, so can only offer that comparison. Compared to my SR-207, yes, L700 is definitely better.

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    Wow, you have dexterous hands to take the cups off so many times! My hands are more suited for "fist=hammer...urg!" tasks; and removing the cups once to do the Lawton mod was enough for me. On the plus side, if I can do it, anyone can probably do it!

    Happy as a Pig in Schiit: Introducing Modi Multibit

    Yup. Based on recommendations on Head-Fi, I ran all Blue Jeans cables through my multiple headphone amps. I started building my Home Theater setup shortly after, and I have all Blue Jeans RCA and subwoofer cables there too. Recommended :)

    The Entry Level Stax Thread

    One of my Stax amps is an SRM-1/MK-2 Pro, with one EACH of Pro and "Normal" outputs. Problem solved!

    Fostex x Massdrop TH-X00 Review

    LOL in all honesty, buy the ZMF Ori pads. There have been tests long-buried in this thread (even with FR graphs) where the ZMF pads are the second-best. The best being Jmoney pads from MANY years ago that can't be purchased anymore.

    It's a straight pass-through. I pass the signal from my DAC *through* my Stax energizers first, and the chain ends at the amp for my Dynamic headphones. I can listen to my Dynamic headphones with my Stax amps off (as I'm doing at this moment). Or, if I switch on one of my 3 Stax amps, I can...

    Hey, now.....I like that a LOT! I've done the "Straw mod" to my 207's, but gotta admit it looks kinda fuggly like that. This method is MUCH more visually appealing. Only question....does it increase the headband clamp? The SR207's are already quite tight on my skull to begin with, and take some...
