    Stax SRM-T8000

    SRM-600 Limited would be my pick. SRM-353X is too lean sounding.

    Well I'm a sucker who just ordered one. Holidaying in Japan at the moment so got it tax free. Couldn't resist the all black housing. Who here prefers the SR-009 over the SR-009s?

    Absolute bargain compared to some of the junk that gets pumped out recently. oBravo Ra C-Cu ($9990 USD and heard from multiple source it requires a desktop amp to reach it full potential) Makes a full Stax setup look cheap. OMG they only going to make 180 world wide. Santa I've been good this year. Wishlist ticked

    I'm on the fence at the moment, I just received my SR-007 Mk1 I got locally. I just worried they might suffer from driver failure. Especially now that you mention the MK2 are better with the port mod. Are the Mk2 less prone to driver failure?

    @spritzer Not sure if you've had enough time to evaluate which you prefer out of the the current flagship Stax. SR-007 MK1, SR-009 & SR-009S (Ok two current as MK1 aren't no longer made).

    Thanks for the feedback. I ended up driving 20min to pick them up after seeing your response. Offer was too good to pass. This will keep me busy until my SR-007 MK1 arrives.

    Anyone here own's the KSE1500 who can describe how it compares to the SR-009 or SR-007. Thinking of grabbing one for a lot less than the KSE1200 on local used market.

    Nothing shocks me now after witnessing Dr. Fang Bian public meltdown with the famous phrase "it's expensive because it sounds good"

    So what is consider the ultimate jump combo would be, T2 DIY with SR-Omega or the T2 DIY with the new SR-009s? Looks like either a SR-202 or SR-207 with the following Modhouse Audio Stax earpad adapter & ZMF lambskin earpads. https://www.modhouseaudio.com/stax-earpad-adapter/xbd7diflbdflc39z62hgswzxgqship

    I recently purchased a cheap SR-5, so now I'm in need of amp with normal biasing. Between a SRM-1 MK2 or SRM-T1S, which one will I be better off and why?

    I'll take some photo later and post them up. Hands down sturdy and easier to remove headband with the old lamda series. Also, as mentioned it doesn't squeak. They only thing I like about the SR-L700 headband is the gold stax logo to match the gold tag on the SR-L300 LE earspeakers.

    I've compared the the earcup holder of my SR-507 to the SR-L700 headband I purchase for my SR-L300 LE. I prefer the metal earcup of SR-507 much much more over the SR-L700 earcup holder. Just seem much better built and sturdy . I just did some searching on the internet. It the same headband / metal earcup as the SR-507 from the the look of it from the SR-L700 Pro photo I found. https://www.hifi-berlin.com/sr-l700-pro.html

    Why 2 L300 LE, so you can pull one apart and compare it to the L700?

    Audiophile or Audio-Fooled?

    I wonder if her listening result would be different if he paired her with a Stax rather than an al cheapo ATH-M50x.
