My living room is my music room, the place I go to enjoy the quiet, the alone, and the peacefulness.

For those curious

The headphones are (from left to right); SR-5, SR-X Mk2 and the SR-404. All three are from the Japanese Stax. The first two are rather old (1975 and 1972, respectively), the latter being rather new (1999).

I use the Gemini PT-2000II record player. Even though it’s actually for DJ-ing, I only use it for casual listening. Inside the closet I’ve got the ART DJPRE II Phono Preamplifier.

For amplification, I’m using the Stax SRM006t tube amplifier for headphones, and the Sony TA-N330ES power amplifier to power the apparently rather unknown Loth-X Ion 3 horn speakers.

Over the past year I’ve acquired a few headphones, mostly because I’ve been closely following Stax sales and upgrading to a higher-end model as I found them. While I’ll sell the SR-X Mk2 (the middle one — it really doesn’t fit me well), I wanted to capture this moment, as it’s not too common to see a few like these together. Also, I had not yet shown the bamboo headphone stand I have recently found and purchased from a great little Etsy store (Thanks so much guys!).
