The parts in question.

 

106?

106 is red-red-yellow, which would be 224k correct?

 

118?

 

 

002?

3M3 is 3.3Mega ohm.  If it were 3.3ohm then it would be written 3R3. 

 

The part number is for the sole 1k/1W resistor.

The SRM-T1 often sells for more than $500 by itself, let alone with a pair of headphones to go with it!

 Saw it on CL . My bad its an SRM-1 Mk2 . the guy also has the Stax- ED-1 .

How much is the ED-1? Are you going to get it?

Sometimes, small teams are much more effecient than larger corporations. As of now, there has been no complain of Stax lagging too much behind to fullfill the orders. The SR009 is built on demand (by batches though of course), and you don't have to wait 6 months upon placing the order. The sales volume of Stax is still very small I think and I don't see a reason why they should turn into a 200 head corporation with a heavier top and less funding available for R&D for example.

For marketing, as you can see, Stax isn't spending huge amounts of money to make stupid videos illustrating the sound waves moving over the driver and this is almost always false information anyway. They make a brochure, give a couple of interviews and let the word of mouth propagate. I feel it is so refreshingly honest!

Sales network relies on distributors outside and sales agents in Japan. This is where Stax is hurting the most and some speculated that edifier could help with this. Doesn't seem to have moved much so far.

Only thing one might regret in the present state is that afaik there's a single engineer doing all the r&d. Stax develops pretty much only 1 product at a time so line refresh / new products don't turn out every 6 months. But I also appreciate this in some way. I don't want to see revisions of the 009 show up every xmas season that claim to destroy whatever product was sold before. Not that I don't appreciate innovation but simply that if you're refreshing a product every year, it probably means you should have avoided to release something half baked...

My 2cts anyway

I bet Stax operation is similar to Koetsu cartridges.

I bet they are not designing and building their own amplifiers (maybe they do final assembly). Nothing wrong with that it kind of explains a lot of things including the very long cycle between model changes. Until I saw the details of their sale I had no idea they were such a tiny company. Incredible international brand identity for such a small enterprise.

Koetsu only makes moving coil cartridges, some models are lot more expensive than the most expensive stat headphones.

Wow. .2mv. That's crazy.

 

Never thought I'd find something as simple as a cart sexy though. Wow.

009 related question. Has anyone found the best Pelican case for these yet? The fancy wood box isn't exactly the best for transport.

 

Preferably water tight.

post #19604 of 24765

I believe AnakChan posted a picture of his travel (pelican?) case which fits both the 009 and the TH900. 

post #19605 of 24765

I was actually the firs to comment on it. Derp. 

 

I guess that's my bad memory biting me again. :D
