  1. I have a baby SRS-2170 set that I bought as new old stock a couple of years ago, and also picked up a well-worn but interesting New SR-3 and SRD-5. I now want to venture deeper down the Stax rabbithole, with two great deals available locally. The first is new in box, local stock SRS-5100 (SRM-353x / L500 Mk I) going for around half the normal retail price, and the other a year-old SRM-353x / L700 Mk I eBay-import for 20% more. My current feeling is that the expected superiority of the L700 trumps the sweeter price and local support of the L500 set. From what I have read the L700 pair

I picked up a little NIB Stax 2170 bundle two years ago and enjoy it tremendously when I use it (as opposed to several Sennheiser, Audeze, Hifiman, Beyerdymanic and AKG's). Now looking to go further up the Stax tree with a lightly used SRM-353x / L700 Mk I, or new in box local stock SRS-5100 (SRM-353x / L500 Mk I) for about 20% less. Both are storming good deals, with local support vs better earspeaker being the decid
