    The Stax thread (New)

    I had fine results with an srx mk3 and srd7 powered by an 80s luxman integrated amp.  No lives are at stake, with inexpensive gear you shouldn't feel compelled to move up the chain unnecessarily.

    they're not really anything like grados in how they wear.  And transformer boxes are fine, if properly fed.

    Meet impressions generally follow consensus, because its really hard to listen critically ate meet, and most people follow the herd.

    I think almost any current stax setup would be comparable to your current setup, with most being a big step up.  There are differences to the nature of the sound tho.

    Ah, ok.  Yes, every range I've been to is ok with collecting your own brass, and generally not ok with you collecting others' brass.  Within reason, of course.

    I think the theory is relatively straight forward.  You need a barrel long enough to burn all the powder and get all the gas expansion you're going to get, and no more.  Once you've used up the propellant, you just have drag from the barrel.

    Quote: Do you know what shills are?  Do you think that the "stax mafia" profits by all the work they do to help figure all this stuff out and share it freely?  Really?  Who are they shilling for?  Because it certainly wasn't the stax distributors, or stax japan.

    ATH-ESW10...any news on release?

    it matters more what country you get them from to have them be more or less likely to be counterfeits.

    24bit vs 16bit, the myth exploded!

    The advantage to various dacs, when dealing with 44/16 or 48/16 tracks is the sound, not whether they'll decode other sample rates.  If it sounds better, it's better.  Whether it can do something you don't need it to do doesn't end up mattering much.

    HeadAmp Pico Portable Amp (w/ optional upsampling 24/96 USB DAC) Pre-Order Thread

    But all things are never equal.  It means that it won't play back 96/24 material without resampling.  Most people don't have a lot of 96/24 material, most people have cds...Listen to it for what it is, don't worry about numbers.

    Quote: 2) Nothing wrong with your unit.  It's  a 48/16 dac.   4) Whichever sounds best to you   the other 2 can be answered by someone else.

    I asked, because he was purporting to have them, so I figured they were pictures of his own guns.  Most people who lock up guns, lock them in a way to make them inoperable.
