:wink:

I'd be asking why a properly designed power supply would be sensitive to supply cables.

It's bullshit, plain and simple. Still, send me some of your cable, I'll be happy to fit non-magnetic unobtanium plugs to it and take money from pillocks :)

I'm looking to replace my tired Bose phones that I picked up in the States many moons ago. Found some Stax electrostatics on eBay a bit back but they went for utterly ridiculous money!

am using some 1980's JVC headphones. Their 'look' is currently in vogue too...

From memory (so could be wildly inaccurate!), these are almost a short circuit load on amplifiers so you need huuuuge amplifiers with massive current to get them going.

So I was told...

Correct. These would be amp killers. I had their cheapest speaker and they worked excellent in my small room with mono blocks..

But one or more these would be perfect
