post #19291 of 24765

I would also like to share a positive Stax experience.  I sent an email to Yama's on Saturday and they replied on Monday eek.gif.  Further, they are sending a replacement part for my 009, which someone broke at the recent LA meet and did not say anything, at no charge.

I realise this.

Point being made is that there is more than one Stax.

Needless to say, I prefer the Japanese rendition.

 

I guess that is the way it stax up.

Otis Redding and Isaac Hayes might disagree.

I think Arthur Conley made the sweetest soul music.

 

His label Atlantic originally distributed the Stax label.

I still prefer my Stax headphones over Otis and Issac.

 

Ask me to pick between the SR007 Mk1 and Isaac, and Isaac gets the Shaft.

You need a Stax on Stax sandwich.

Hey Livewire- no I have one customized which really doesn't sound that good and one normal or regular one.  The regular one sounds great with my Sigma non pros.  The Customized one sounds terrible.  The little label says " Improved Model Stax Industries Tokyo Japan." 

 

I have also noticed that the price for the customized model is significantly higher.  Is there anyone out there in Headfi land that has a really good sound one?  Maybe I have to let the thing warm up for a couple of hours to enjoy it's benefits.  As it stands now, I just don't get it.

That one does sound amazing and very different from the K216 version.  It made some Exstata owners very unhappy at CanJam '10 and Stax later took the same PCB and used it in the SRM-3 amp with a larger PSU and some part changes.

It is the same amp but with aftermarket mod to populate the bias supply as it was empty when this amp shipped.  I'm guessing the S/N matches that of the SR-80Pro set which was sold with this amp as none of the small amps I've owned have a S/N anywhere close to that.

Well,

 

my SRA12S was overhauled by the German stax distributor.

At that time it was much better than a SRM 1 Mk2 I had then.

 

They swapped caps...

 

I won't sell mine because it has a good phono section and just works.....

 

It's here next to my computer, when I need to record some LPs to have them on the computer.

Very interesting. I wonder who populated the bias supply then, since the previous owner had allegedly bought the set from a quality store.

 

I now have an SR-323 to drive the SR-202 and SR-407 I have. Lovely piece of kit, it's better than the Xs, just not sure how much yet.

 

Thanks mate :D.
