    STAX SR-009S new flagship electrostatic earspeakers released (with impressions)

    I have never owned or listened to the MSB Select. At an eye-watering $38,000 I never will. I hope it is as good as people say it is. I like tubed equipment very much having owned Conrad-Johnson, and Audio Research and other gear in the past. Currently am using a Ray Samuels A-10 Thunderbolt II...

    When I was in a Canadian Artillery Unit many years ago, we fired Howitzers on a regular basis. It was a pretty noisy job, so the army issued us earplugs.

    Thank you for your prompt and thorough response! You are quite right about old thinking . . . I am 69 and some days it hurts to think at all! Would you recommend using the balanced or unbalanced outputs? The cable run will be very short so does it really matter? Thanks!

    Thanks! I ordered the Stax SRM T8000 at the same time.
