So the new series Stax headbands like to break too? Disgusting. When my 407 band broke and I bought a replacement, I bought a basic black also and put it on my 404LE, putting away my irreplaceable anniversary headband.

Anyway that’s not why I replied. What are your comments on the BH Stat? We Seattle HeadFiers have a special connection to Bottlehead, and pre-COVID usually had our Spring meet there. Thanks in advance for your impressions.
I won’t clutter this thread up with BH Stat impressions, I’ll post them to the Stax III thread soonish, but long story short, it is an amazing counterpoint to my CCS modded 006. It’s not as technically detailed as the 006 (which itself is a tube amp) but it really presents Stax uniquely. I haven’t done tube rolling but am picking things off on eBay and will see what that does.

I must say dealing with Paul at Bottlehead was the best part about it, very awesome service (I bought it 3rd hand and it arrived exceptionally damaged). Very reasonable repair experience and enjoying it with my NB Lambdas like crazy.

Replaced the cheap USB cable with a short 1' Pangea cable. Also purchased a cheap red power cable to go along with the blue one I've had laying around for a few years.

The USB cable is meant as an upgrade obviously, but the power cables are just for looks and better cable management since the back of the stack is right out in the open for everyone to see.

cleaned up some of my working mess. The Senn's are now powered by Rolls-Bellari HA543, (sitting on a quick little shelf i crafted up for $5 :) ) I actually enjoy the 'enhance' feature (read: treble boost).. Kenny Rogers sounded celestial, and Sinead O'Conner like an angel...MicrosoftTeams-image.jpg
Please, let me know what Kenny Rodgers song is "celestial" (with album if possible).

I liked Kenny well enough back in the day, loved his chicken joints. Not doubting your exuberance, I want to experience it myself.
