Pelican 1400 Case for transporting the SR-009 (and the TH-900). In case owners are looking for secure transportable cases :-

 

 

 

 

 

 

OT: And the same case for the Fostex TH-900 (Click to show)

Definitely thinking about the Pelican case.

 

Oh, and in 2 - 4 weeks (whenever Jack decides to get my 009s I just threw money at him for) I'll have my LL + 009. My poor wallet.

MorbidToaster, nice! Wrap that up with an LCD3 and Liquid Glass and you're all set ;)

Turntable first, then a new car, then we'll talk. ;)

New car after new source, yep, sounds reasonable ;)

post #19311 of 24765

It's funny because the new source is gonna cost damn near what the new (used) car is. :D

 

I've been putting off my analog rig for a long time because I kept hearing amps/cans I wanted. Now that there's nowhere to go...time for my TT.

I swear by Pelican cases.  Lifetime Warranty and buoyancy ratings.  I've seen laptops survive falls from the Golden Gate bridge into the bay and getting crushed by the breech of a M1A1 tank gun.

Pelican? No way! You gotta go with Stormcase. Or at least you did until Pelican bought, not sure if the quality has changed.

 

Apparently the "truck driving over a case" demonstration is more show than substance.

SR-009s have been in the house for a few days now and I'm really enjoying them with my GES, the SRM-717 seems a shade too bright for me. I'm very pleased that this cheaper amp is doing such a great job, saves me some money. smily_headphones1.gif

If your referring to the 3 grey resistors on the left, I think they have shadows on them.  I don't think they are burnt out.  I'll look again.

eBay heads-up:

 

SRM-313

 

What in the...I thought all SRM-313s had at least one Normal bias socket and that the succeeding SRM-323 was the Pro bias-only one! That diminishes the appeal to me.

 

Also, it's set for 100V. I wonder how easy it is to change the voltage setting to 117V/120V so no one has to bother with a step-down transformer.

 

SRM-1/Mk2 Pro

 

"B" revision, 117V. I would be tempted if not for that high starting bid price at $400 + $24 shipping; isn't the more appropriate price for an SRM-1/Mk2 Pro around $300 shipped?

When I was looking, they all go for between 400-600.  you might find a normal/normal one for $3something if you hold out.

Thanks for taking the time to look at all.  I trust your eyes more then mine.

 

I'm going to start a cap list for the recap tonight.  I'll look at the panasonics or nichicons.  I haven't looked yet, but what make caps should I use for this application?  film, aluminum, etc??

Just in case anyone is after a SRM-1/MK-2 there is one up on ebay with a not to bad buy it now price,http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stax-Earspeaker-Headphone-Amplifier-SRM-1-MK-2-Professional-/251142810475?pt=US_Home_Audio_Amplifiers_Preamps&hash=item3a79472b6b

post #19320 of 24765

I have been watching the pricing on the SRM-1/MK-2 units a lot over the last 12 months, on ebay and here as well seems that pricing now is above the $400,00 mark as a base quite often the price ends up been around $580.00 ish, just for the unit it self.
