    Carbon + SR009 = ultimate combo indeed !  I am happy for you :)
    could you just tell us why you bought the Carbon instead of BHSE or another TOL stat amp ?   delivery delay ? price ? sound ? ....

    seaice 009 are better than L700? oh well I just ordered L700. will arrive my home tomorrow morning.
  3. seaice
    none of these :) frankly, my limited knowledge of Stax universe.... And I wanted the best solid state amp for my L700... But I am absolutely happy with the Carbon + 009 combo :)
    Both are great but 009 are really better. And with the Carbon, differences are not small - especially the soundstage of 009 is so much better. But I have not heard any other Stax amps...

    Did you know that SR-L700's pads are user removable. its very easy. just pull off. please try it.
    You can also remove inner dust covers.
    Do you hear the difference between inner dust cover on and off?

    Hello, is it an answer for question in STAX iii thread?  here
  6. Pokemonn
    nop i have never own Lambda Nova Basic. so I can't comment on them. so sorry...
  7. dharma
    OK thanks...
    Is it possible for You to make a short comparison STAX L700 versus Sennheiser HD600, HD650 and HD800?... There seems to be some interest for real life comparison of those in HD800S thread.
  8. Pokemonn
    you are welcome.
    nop I can't... since my english ability is very bad.I can't describe the difference well.
    I can do comparison in japanese but in english...Im sorry...I hope someone will do it.
    i guess it is little bit difficult since amps and DACs affect the results.

    Thank You for respond... my English is not good too, and yes it's limiting possibilities here....

    How is the sound of the L700 on the Carbon?

    Short comparisons =>
    vs HD600: L700 is better
    HD650: L700 is better
    HD800: L700 is better, except for soundstage

    Hello, You find all Seaice impressions nicely here too
  14. seaice

    Very nice and recommended combination. Very clean, detailed and engaging sound. The only small shadow is the soundstage that is still not so great as the soundstage of 009 (with Carbon as well) or HD800. I would recommend to everyone: If you have funds for 009 and good amp, go for 009. I will probably sell my L700 because I like 009 better and I do not need two electrostats at home. L700 are great headphones I could live with but I bought 009 recently and found them better for me.
    Sorry, I cant post more details.... got some tough flu and will be out of my headphone world for some time...

    I have the Stax  SR 507 paired with the SRM 323S. When listening with Darin Fong's Out Of Your Head with Acoustic Zen, it really opened up the soundstage, so I have no complaints.
