post #5781 of 37796
I just got my Denon DA-500. Haven't been able to test it out because i don't have an optical cable. But damn i can't wait. Does anyone know of an easy mod for this thing? I've been reading around mod threads and come across a lot of material, all of which i do not understand...

A pic of my setup (pretty messy)

My current amp:



...



I expect the GS1000's to get along quite handsomely with it ...

I'm also sort of banging around the idea of getting this instead of the GS1000's:



I enjoyed the Stax systems I heard at the houston meet but not too sure how well this srs-3050ii system performs.

It would be cool to run out of the Stello's pre amp output and to the Stax amp, though ... there by keeping my Havana DAC as the system wide source.

Dunno what I'm going to do, though.

Still waiting for some feedback on that Stax system ...

I'd stay away. Their first amp was wasn't really good... at all.

But, I wonder if that $40 off can be applied to the soldering station they sell...

Hakko all the way! Best $$ ever spent. Heck, had I the funds I'd get one of their solder/desolder stations and give you a good deal on my 936M

Just pulled the trigger on this:

Stax srs-3050 ii "Classic":

...



...

After much deliberation regarding amps ... it suddenly occurred to me that I enjoy everything about my current DAC/AMP combo and that left headphones as the next thing to investigate.

Since the Houston meet, the stats have been lurking in my membrane as something I really really appreciated ...

So 750.00 for this 1200 dollar system, at Audiogon, was all I needed to see.

I'll post some thoughts once I get it in hand.
