Staxaholic here too !!! I still am absolutely thrilled every time I put my Lambda Pro's on and the 404's a little way's behind them . I WILL be purchasing some OII's in time along with the McAlister amp.

Well, for an alternative on the 4070...There's always this!

I have actually thought about that. Buying a pair of used 404's and create closed woodies for them myself. That would be something different!

Wouldn't the wood make them too heavy?

Might be. Depending on the thickness and type of wood of course.
Carbon-fiber, and/or fiberglass, could be really cool (I have contacts). Hmmm....

Long as you are all here... Just how bad are Stax amps compared to HeadAmp, SinglePower, McAlister?

Primarily interested in the McAlister vs. the 006t or 313. Still undecided on the 404 vs. 303 too. If it really is just the cable... then I'll go 303 for the less ugly of the two but I'm guessing its not that simple.

Anyway let me know.

One more thing. Anyone in the Ottawa area have a Stax rig I could come listen to? Should only need 5-10 minutes to decide if its something I want to explore further. PM me.

Yeah right, told myself the same thing on Sunday, ended up sitting there all day grinning like an idiot. You will know within 5 minutes though.

I wonder about this as well.
I don't feel I miss out of much with my SR-007t amp. But I have read good thing about SinglePower and would like to listen to one. I don't think there are anyone in my area though.

I warn you! Don't even go there if you are not prepared to spend that amount of money.
Cause the sound is really addictive.

Here are my short story:
One day I decided to drop in to my local dealer for a quick listen to the Stax goods. I stayed there for two hours listening to four systems (202, 303, 404 and 007), and at the end I went home with the most expensive one. ...And now I want more. he he

Yes, a little love for my lowly Lambdas... anyone else notice McAlister has updated the site for EA-4, and a little bump on the EA-1?

I'm already thinking OII for Christmas...

Keep in mind, the ATH-L3000 drivers cost $100 or so for a pair when you could get the, whereas the L3000 itself cost in excess of $2000. Housing DOES matter.

I wuv my Lambda Pros. The only bad part is that my Yamaha amp sucks, and I'm using a self/low-biased transformer. If anyone wants to sell me an SRM 1 mk2, feel free to do so. :P

Even so, I still think they sound incredible. Incredible soundstage, very immersive.

Forgive the newb question but is it normal for a new pair of SR007's to make scratchy electrical shorting sounds when adjusting the cups? It's not particularly loud but it is alarming never the less.
