I bought the entry Stax SRS-3100 which is a combination of SR-L300 headphone and the SRM-252S energiser lately. My source is an Intel NUC running ROCK (Roon on Linux). It feeds the Stax via a tiny iFi nano iDSD DAC. Do you think the iFi is doing justice to the Stax? My impression of the Stax so far is mediocre. Nothing outstanding and wonder it is the DAC. Your opinions welcome. Cheers Michael
Further information: I bought it from a Melbourne retailer less than 10 months ago. I found that I am not using it frequently enough to justify owning it. The sound form the system is great as revealed in many reviews. One such review is right here by Matthew Jens in September 2017. https://www.stereo.net.au/reviews/review-stax-srs-3100-electrostatic-earspeaker-system The system consists of the energizer (amplifier) SRM-252S and the ear speakers SR-L300. They will be shipped in their original boxes at $20 flat.. If you are not familiar wi
Hi guys, I recently purchased (haven’t received) the STAX SR5 +SRD-6. I’d always heard about the mythical electrostatic earspeakers. They say you can “hear God” through them. I was quite excited when I found a loophole that’d allow me to hear them without dropping thousands of dollars... Just buy STAX that are 46 years old. Research compares them favourably to even Sennheiser HD800s, which are about 10 times as expensive as what I paid for these. Turns out they require a tremendous amount of power to drive compared to headphones, and unfortunately I only have headphone
I am buying a set of STAX L700 headphones and energiser. My question is how do I incorporate these pieces into my current system which is MacBook Pro running Audirvana into Arcam irDACII via USB which is connected to Arcam A39 integrated amp by twin RCAs and to Arcam CDS27 streamer/CD by coaxial (ie to DAC). Will I connect the energiser to my DAC or one of the other pieces? I've searched but couldn't find an answer to this. And if it's blindingly obvious, sorry.... Thanks
