Here at KJ West One, we are excited to announce that we are now stocking the world renowned Stax ‘earspeakers’. We have a number of models now available for demonstration in store, including the only pair of their flagship SR-009 headphones in London.

If you are interested in high-end headphones, you will already be very aware of Stax. They are a brand that has for years been regarded by many as ‘the best headphones in the world’. 

We feel Stax are a perfect fit for our showroom. They do not just manufacture run-of-the-mill headphones. They produce reference electrostatic headphones and have been doing so for 50 years. In fact Stax invented the electrostatic headphone, hence the name, which was originally derived from the word ‘electrostatic’.

Manufactured in Japan, Stax are known for their incredible transparency and effortlessly natural presentation. The sound quality that Stax are able to produce is the key reason that headphiles around the world crave them. 

We currently have the SR-009 and SR-007 MKII earspeakers and the SRM-007tII Kimik energiser in store available to try and we are expecting the new SR-L500 headphones and SRM-353X energiser in next week.

If you would like to arrange an appointment to try these headphones please contact us to book a time.

On the 12th December we are teaming up with Devialet again to bring an exclusive first UK presentation of their new reference limited edition 'Expert' amplifier, Le 900 (or Original D'Atelier) to KJ West One.

The event will run throughout the day, starting at 10am and finishing at 5.30pm.

Le 900 is a special product which has been created by Devialet for just 100 units and features many interesting new features including a newly designed board in the ADH hybrid core which allows for more power transmission, without any size variation. The Class A amplifier has also been optimised to expand its audio performance to 900W and more. A thermal management system has been developed and the power supply improved. 

The 900 also has a unique gold copper finish and is personally signed by Pierre-Emmanuel Calmel. 

Devialet experts will be on hand demonstrating Le 900, the rest of the 'Expert' range as well as Phantom. They will also be bringing their SAMLab and a SAM engineer with them who will be able to analyse visitor's speakers.
