Alternatives for Stax SR-l 700

Recommended Posts

Ok, am wanting the SR-L700 model and am TOTALLY confused as to which damn amp to get, we have the SRM 006ts, 353x and 727 mk 2 .

Are tbere any other brands that can be better suited up to this price ceiling?

For an inexpensive alternative, you could get an old SRM-T1, then for around $100, replace all the old electrolytic capacitors and put in my CCS mod. For another $100 substitute a TKD pot for the Alps, although you lose the balance function. Won't sound as good as the KG alternatives, but will sound better than any standard Stax amp IMHO.

Out of Stax brand amps, I've used the 313, 007t, and 717, and preferred the 717 by a good margin. Considering the similarities between that and the KGSS, the suggestion is a very good one, if you can swing it. The L700 does tend to be a touch bright though and you may need a bit of EQ to get the highs to behave. It's not bad however, I don't use more than 4db anywhere.

JimL's suggestion is the most cost effective solution for a good amp by far.

I would say that they're not too amp picky and even very basic amps sound decent... as long as they're good amps.
