Selling all my HiFi gear - seriously the best sound I’ve heard via headphones. Box for the phones, no box for the energiser- receipt for both. About 3 months old.
For a while now I've been using a Stax SR-3030 set-up with my home office PC using normal audio out. The SR-3030 is a combination of the SRM-313 amp and the SR-303 earspeakers.
I recently purchased an Audioquest Dragonfly Black second-hand from the for sale section here at Stereonet to get better sound than the standard audio out jack.
When I plugged the Dragonfly in I thought it was a nice improvement so I've been experimenting a bit more.
I downloaded the demo version of Audirvana for Windows to give it a test. The combination sounded great -- far better than I expected.
Then I started reading about VST plugins with Audirvana and came across a plugin from ToneBoosters that offered equalisation for different headphones, including some Stax models. They don't have a profile for the SR-303s but do have one for the SR-404s which are very similar (in fact there was a lot of discussion whether they were different at all when they were released).
I must say, the combination sounds impressive for what is a fairly modest set-up. Very impressed with the sound of vocals, remarkable clarity and naturalness. The Stax headphones are doing their magic, but they need a good input to really sing and this combination is doing that:
Dell PC > Audirvana for Windows > ToneBoosters Morphit VST plugin > Audioquest Dragonfly Black > Stax SR-3030 headphones
The Stax headphones aren't necessarily modest, but I did buy second hand so not hugely expensive.
The Morphit plugin has profiles for a lot of other headphones as well.
Very happy indeed 🙂
