    Yes I think you are correct STAX burns the earspeakers for a week or so before actually shipping them out.
  2. ToroFiestaSol
    @isquirrel Yup, zero burn in with electrostats.

    god damn! Look at that beautiful setup...:astonished::scream:

    Now, that MSB ultra expensive ES amp look very interesting ! Let us know what you found out
  5. JimL11
    When MSB originally announced their electrostatic headphone amp, Kevin Gilmore designed a "clone" based on the published photos, which IIRC turned out to be one of his least expensive designs in terms of parts cost. Google current feedback electrostatic amp. Reportedly it sounded good, albeit somewhat different from his other designs, but very few if any detailed subjective comments that I could find.

    It takes $$$$$ to find out. I'm happy with with my Carbon & T2 & Justin's Aristaeus....no need for fancy MSB amplifier.

    Not if you get someone to build you the clone, which is $, uses a 10k input pot, leaves out the input transformers and the ridiculous 75 ohm input impedance.

    How much would it cost Jim just part wise?

    Dunno. Congo5 said it cost him $50 in parts but he used some parts from his junk box. plus a spare KGBH PS he had lying around. So, I'm guessing around $200 plus circuit boards, heatsinks and chassis box (which could have the heat sinks). If you use a REALLY fancy box, maybe $37,000. :ksc75smile:

    But GeorgeP's spectacular T2 two-box chassis only cost $1500.00......:ksc75smile:

    You should see his speaker setup. Makes his headphone setup look like peanuts. If I'm not mistaken it contains the two most expensive record players ever made.
  13. Whitigir
    Now, that is life my friend....so his speakers are the butter. I got a Peanut, I got a butter, Peanut-Butter, Butter-Peanuts!

    Perhaps Continuum from Australia?
    Most expensive - yes
    Best - no
    I'll stick with my Linn LP12
