    I will be at the Rocky Mountain Audio fest/Canjam 2015 this year.

    I am most looking forward to this event. I did attend it in 2011. Also, I was granted a Press Pass because I will be the At Large Free Lance Photo Journalist for The Audiophile Club of Athens, Greece ACA. Although I live in NYC ACA is nice enough to have me as a member.  See you all there.

    Differences between the Stax SR 507s and SR 407s? Are there any real differences between each models' earspeakers?

    What's inside the earspeakers of the SR 507s? Are the insides the same or are the insides different? I know that the colors of each of the models are different; one is a black color and the other a brown color. I also know that the headbands have a slightly different design and insignia. The...

    The Stax SR-507 Thread

    Boy, the SR 507 really clamps down on your head when you put it on. It is a very tight fit. I am not saying that this is a bad thing. Maybe in time the tightness will loosen up.  I listened to my new pair for about four hours yesterday. I do like the sound very much.It does rival the sounds...

    STAX vs KOSS amp

    Koss does not make an headphone amp, they make energizer boxes. Stax makes headphone amps and energizers.

    The Stax SR-507 Thread

    My pair of SR 507s just arrived a couple of minutes ago from Japan. I have them hooked up and ready to go. I am excited about today's listening session.

    The Stax Thread III

    Well, I only heard them on one occassion; that being the Munich High End Audio Show that just pasted. But I was impressed with the SR- 507s. They are very reasonably priced. I did an informal AB test between the SR 007s, SR009s and the SR507s and I actually prefered the 507s. I am now awaiting...

    I will be at the Rocky Mountain Audio fest/Canjam 2015 this year.

    It's been a while since I attended this show. 2011 to be exact. I look forward to seeing everyone there.

    I had a chance to audition the Stax SR 507 and SR 407 at the Munich High End Show. What do you think about them? I really

    Liked the sound; perhaps even more than the SR 009. You really can't beat the price of these either. I bought a pair of each and am awaiting delivery. Sorry that I have been away from Headfi for a while. Nice to be back.

    The Stax Thread III

    I have opened up the inards of a pair of failed Sigmas. My biggest problem is that the connection between the cables and earspeaker(s) become unstable and begin to cut out the sound. I currently have a pair of Sigmas that are in this condition and in the past I have gone through at least two...

    MCINTOSH LABS INTRODUCES NEW HEADPHONE AMP MODEL MHA 100

    4N6- Well I will bet there is a McIntosh formula that would sound better that the MHA 100. I must admit that I have only tried the MHA 100 system once with the McIntosh headphones and I thought the sound was good but not excellent. If you think that the total system-amp and headphones are well...

    MCINTOSH LABS INTRODUCES NEW HEADPHONE AMP MODEL MHA 100

    Just checking in to say hi to the contributors of this thread. Has anyone thought of a McIntosh alternative to buying the new McIntosh MHA 100 Headphone amp. Maybe a pair of MC 501s and then a nice McIntosh preamp with a heaphone output would sound pretty nice and for a lot less money. Are there...

    The Stax Thread III

    The only thing I can say about the deterioration of the foam like earpads in the Lambda or Sigmas is that these headphones are well over 35 years in age. If I am not mistaken the Lambdas and the Sigmas started in the late 1970s. I think the deteriortion is just the natural decay of the materials...

    MCINTOSH LABS INTRODUCES NEW HEADPHONE AMP MODEL MHA 100

    I got to say that I was finally able to audition the new McIntosh Headphone amp and headphones. The audition was at my local high end audiophile store. I only spent about fifteen minutes listening to the system; so I would not say that I gave it a real workout. My opinion is that the McIntosh...

    The Stax Thread III

    Hi Arnaud and all my other friends. I was just in Sydney, Australia for ten days. This was my vacation of the year. I looked for some audio stuff to do in Sydney but could only find a cd/vinyl record store chain and a nice guitar shop in the downtown shopping area. I was right on the corner for...
