    Unfortunately, like most Singaporeans, I live in a HDB flat. There isn't enough space for my 32-inch TV, not to mention having these "beasts" around. I will not have the space even to walk.

    My first real speakers were the Quad ESL-63 on stands. I crammed them in my bedroom and I literally have to move my bed out of the room!

    Hehe.. But of course, I've never heard an actual Stax setup. I'm hoping someone will buy a Stax Omega-II's setup and let me listen to it. LOL..
    That's why I didn't list it. I only listed those headphones that I've heard and I felt are good or others have felt are good.

    I've found the general opinion online that the Stax and Sennheiser Baby-O do really sing when matched with a well designed electrostatic amplifier.
    The default amplifier that the Baby-O comes with is extremely disappointing though.

    Anybody remember The Absolute Sound at Marina Square? I used to hang out there a lot and listen to their CD selections with the Stax Lambada. Sweet!!!!

    my HT setup is in my living room which is around 4.3m by 4.3m. you don't really need a big space.

    Projector is very worth the money. 92" is a BIG difference compared to 42". It is like comparing a 2 megapixel cam to a 10 megapixel cam

    92" compared to 34" is even much better.

    Give Stax a listen, Kingsley selling. Starts at $900 with the SR-2020 combi. Its really good. Don't want to get into any of those silly audiophile specifics but generally if you like its electrostatic qualities even the entry-level SRS-2020 set is noticeably better than my HD-650 on Earmax OTL (rolled with input Mullard M8162 + output Siemens E88CC). But have to be careful with the plastic built.

    Listen to any nicely recorded DVD-A/SACD, no horse run man....
