This system need DAC right? Is the SRS-3170 worth to buy ah? There are many models, so if sound leakage that means cannot be used in office or open environment..Anybody got a price list?

When it comes to the sound, the SR-009s are supreme beings, they have the classic Stax sound but everything is so crisp and balanced. The soundstage goes for miles and the highs are vividly clear. These earspeakers a extremely spacious, it really does feel like the whole room is filled with sound. They make you feel very small, something that is very difficult to achieve with headphones.

After one long evening under the spell of the Stax system, we went off to hear a prototype of Sennheiser’s new HE 1, replacement for the Orpheus headphones, thinking they would have quite a job to sound better. The HE 1s were perhaps softer-sounding, while still achieving the same revelations, but really, the HE 1s are likely to retail around $75,000, and the Stax were delivering similar levels of pleasure. Their open leakage makes them useless in a shared room, of course (unless you plug a second pair into the driver). That aside, if you’re after a top-level headphone (or earspeaker, sorry), then you simply can’t NOT audition Stax. We’d recommend taking a nice long playlist with you. Maybe stay the night.

On this episode of Head-Fi TV, we'll be taking a look at some pretty big news in the world of Head-Fi, ESPECIALLY if you're an electrostatic headphone enthusiast. Today, Stax Japan is going to unveil their Stax SRM-T8000 Vacuum Tube Input, Driver Unit For Earspeakers -- a hybrid tube/solid state electrostatic amp which is the first true flagship electrostatic headphone amplifier from STAX since 1994.

"The first thing you notice when you listen to Stax earspeakers is the space they give, the Stax sound is an airy and musical sound. It kind of feels like the band is dangling on strings beside your ears." Adairacoustic

During my stay in Kawasaki, Japan, I discovered a treasure cove of headphones near my hotel. I've been in the headphone game for 5 years now, but this was my first encounter with STAX products. Many have sung praises for STAX's Earspeakers, but did they live up to these expectations? (Spoiler: Yes yes, and then some.)
