This ad is for a complete all Stax Electrostatic headphone system consisting of :
Stax SRM-717 Headphone Amplifier
Stax SR-507 Headphones
Stax Heaphone Stand & Plastic cover
Having tried a few Stax electrostatic headphones and loving the incredibly clear and open sound, I set out to purchase a very nice pure Stax system.
After talking with the Stax gurus at length, I narrowed my search to the SRM717 Stax amplifier. (They highly recommended it)
The SRM-717 is one of the largest Stax amplifiers, and also the most powerful amp that Stax has made, and is capable of 450 vrms. (The other Stax amps only go to 340vrms)
In pure sound quality, dynamic drive, and bass power the 717 cannot be beat. It comes VERY close to the custom exotic amps now costing 3 times as much. The SRM-717 will drive ALL Stax headphones, with power to spare. The SRM-727 which came after it does not even come close.
I did find and purchased a pristine used SRM-717, (and the INTERNATIONAL model at that - with adjustable voltage for Japan 100v, USA 117v, Europe 240v -see pic.
I also purchased a brand new set of Stax SR-507 Headphones, and the new Stax headphone stand and Stax plastic cover to go with it.
This combination sounds beautiful as you would imagine, transparent right through to the instruments, with strong precise bass, stunning mids, and highs that are better than any dynamic or planar magnetic headphone.
The SR-507 is not nearly broken in, as I have put less than 5 hours on them. I have decided to upgrade my main rig, so I am putting this ALL STAX system up for sale.
This setup is ready to go, and has both balanced and unbalanced inputs.
My cost was over $2300.00
Fedex shipping is included. (USA only)
Paypal is preferred - I will pay the fee.
