  1. Man I hope they don't do a Hifiman. Stax SR-10k. RRP $10,000. Why are they so expensive? Because they sounds so good. ?
  2. Trying to do this mod this my SRM-T1S and SRM-600. By tail resistor, did you mean R20 stock 2.2k to 1.5k? Also I'm looking at your custom CCS PCB and comparing it to Kevin's one. Where are the four DN2540 and there 2 giant WIMA cap. Or are they hidden behind the large heat sink.
  3. Holy snap, new Omega III or what ever they going to call it (Top secret on expected release date). Wonder if it will knock the SR-009 off the flagship mantel.
  4. I'm still scratching my head, how on earth did it win so many award if it sound the way it is stock form?? It won headphone of the year 2018, HOW?
  5. The L-500 are just L-300 with L-500 earpads. You're much better to grab the L-300 with L-700 pads. But of course L-700 are superior if you're willing spend more.
  6. Mine are number 103. Paid like on 28th October.
  7. Well these came in today sent on the 14th Friday, arrived on the 18th.
  8. Stax has made it ultra confusing with the SR-007. From my knowledge there is 4 version. 7xxxx (Earlier one comes with carbon box, later serial number comes with the standard box), SZ1-xxxx (Slight driver changes not sure what's the changes), SZ2-xxxx and the SZ3-xxxx. Can anyone firm what the changes are between each revision. Also anyone has owned all 4 to evaluate the sound difference?
  9. Anyway to work that out using a multi meter or an oscilloscope to measure the output from the KSA1500 AMP/DAC?
  10. Anyone know what's a top condition SR-007 MK1 with the carbon box is worth these days? Also is it just a simple 6pin female lemo to 6pin stax plug to get a KSE1500 to work off the old normal bias Stax energizer?
  11. 6000 Yen is about that price. Throw in 20-30 buck for international delivery http://audioon.blog.jp/archives/1073265658.html
  12. yup bargain compared to this. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/STAX-SR-Omega-1-Electrostatic-Headphones-One-of-a-kind/192736088566?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Ddca0e907a47e440a86b6d1d4d4db1198%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D302948944629%26itm%3D192736088566&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Aae159fd7-f30c-11e8-81c2-74dbd18059df%7Cparentrq%3A5a622a211670a99b5d686a2cfffe35cc%7Ciid%3A1 Guess I can kiss goodbye to ever owning one.
  13. 55 Buck for some plastic clips?
  14. The KSE1500 with foam tips are amazing. Even in noisy environment, the noise isolation is just incredible.
  15. Yeah something more like an improved SRM-X Pro but with a builtin DAC
  16. SRM-600 Limited would be my pick. SRM-353X is too lean sounding.
  17. 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?
  18. 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
  19. 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?
  20. @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).
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. If there's any left over GRLV I'm after 4 thanks & 4 Alps,TKD combo board.
  24. Nothing shocks me now after witnessing Dr. Fang Bian public meltdown with the famous phrase "it's expensive because it sounds good"
