STAX Headphone Amps

more_vert
Does anyone know of any good headphone amps on DROP that would work well with STAX headphones, preferably under $1,000?

Stax headphones are electrostatic and require a 5 pin pro bias plug and wayyyyy more power than the 789 can output. Most stax headphones are over 100,000 ohms impedance. While I absolutely love my 789 amp it won’t run any of my electrostatics that I own.

My bad, I thought they were planar magnetic rather then electrostatic

No, not really. But Bottlehead just released a electrostatic HP for 1400$, it seems a good value for Stax HP´s. I´ve never heard yet, but has good reviews
