    The Stax Thread III

    ^^ That is the first time i have seen a take like that on the 2.9 To my ears the 2.9 is a very good headphone stock, the normal qualities associated with stats. I found the port mod made the response more even from the lower mid range and down, but the bass was always there and in quantity.

    Just go for it. From a technical stand point the mod is super easy. The only part that his annoying is getting the pads back on, but that is just finicky not complex or delicate.

    Headamp Blue Hawaii Special Edition

    I was looking at these and the PSVANE PH metal base replicas. I went with the PSVANE because at the time they at least had good reviews for sound signature.. reliability was another story. However the ones I have are their second generation of the tubes(silver base vs bronze) and they appear to...

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

    I think source and amp are very important with stax. A problem is that most seem to think source starts, centers and ends on a dac. This is a mistake.

    Oris has a strangle hold of that price segment. I think regardless of history you would have a hard time finding a swiss brand giving you better value at that price, even considering used watches. But if the other brands you mentioned are what you really want then you are spending a lot of...

    While you definitely could be happy with that setup and depending on the synergy of components it may sound very good. I don't think anyone would tell you that with regard to the 007 there is more performance to be had from other setups. As a starting point oi that is convenient for you I say...

    Oh nothing that I really have any hope of running across, but it is GC so anything is possible. A Nautilus 5711 is on my list but even though I'm odd in that i prefer the white dial, they just don't exist. And I would like a Royal Oak 15400ST and again I prefer the white dial on that too. I...

    Not counting the g shock I'm at 2 pieces right now. With 5 on my list. Going to grand Cayman in December. I'm also the only local person on my ADs list for a SS blue dial sky dweller. With some luck I'll have 2 more watches by the end of next year and three to go. I reserve the right to...

    I had no idea any of these places have welcome messages. I also never bother to lurk, but I have rather thick skin. Honestly I hate the idea of safe spaces. This PC nonsense will be the death of western society. +1 The management of this space is the most under reported part of headphones...
