hmmm, tempting!

 

Pricing is looking great when compared to the other big players, it will be interesting to see how this one compares to the rest of the field. happy_face1.gif

Sean, considering I am getting the BHSE, I see no other option than you get the electra and we prepare for a fun spring headphone gathering ;).

The detail level of lambda signature is amazing,

(I thought the LS were somewhat dirty,veiled at the beginning, I was wrong)

they are so transparent, mellower and life-like.the sound textures are real from LS

 

on the other hand the 507...I thought they were transparent,clean, I was wrong again,

I feel the 507 are a little veiled now,& there are some harshness in the entire FR compare to the LS

( 507 are good cans,but the LS are just amazing)

 

But the signature "etch" sometimes annoy me

Any other lambda sound life-like like the LS? lambda normal bias?

(I don't care much on the bass impact or FR extensions)

thanks

I was just toying with that idea!! You with the BHSE, DonnyHifi with the LL, The_member_formerly_known_as_Wallabie (a.k.a. YD) with the Woo WES, me with the Electra! But alas according to MF, the $3500 is only for the first 10 then the price jumps up.

It would be hilarious if we could go to the meet in May with 3 top 'stat amps in one room...if we could fit them!

Hi All,

 

I'm still catching up on the last 20 or so pages of this thread, so I hope I'm not covering old ground . . .

 

I recently picked up STAX SR-007 mk2 and I'm looking for a good amp to drive it.  Some people like the BHSE since it over comes the 'darkness' of the 007s.  I'm not sure what the darkness is . . . but I'm wondering if the SR-007s are inherently better with tube amps over SS.  Then I was thinking, if that is the case, then maybe the SR-007t II would be a less expensive way of driving these.  But one guy said the SR-007t II 'the worst' because of 'bad tubes', while others seemed to like it with the SR-007.

 

Anyway, I'm wide open for suggestions . . .

 

Thanks in advance . . .

 

Rich

Get the BHSE - do away with the doubt.

No bad tubes, no more darkness, what more could one want?

 

Iffin you get the 007 for yer 007 you may like it, you may not. 

Even if you like it, you will still want to get a BHSE because it is the best of the best.

 

Of course if you could go to a meet or visit someone who has these amps, you would then know after a listen or two.

Just my measly two cents.

An SRM-323S is a good sounding budget amp.

And the SZ3 SR007 Mk2 is not that dark sounding but in my opinion it has other "issues" which a powerful amp may not just "fix".

Issues? For one it's not a SR-009.

 

Alas - then some say that it has issues too. (treble happy and ridiculously expensive)

There is no "perfect" headphone, you cant please everyone.

If it sounds good to you, then it should be a "keeper".

It is not easy to describe from memory but it inherited the somewhat woolly bass response from other Omega IIs (but I'm quickly adding that I've never heard a properly driven one) as well as some of the glare that is usually present in most Lambdas.

That said I heard and owned many other Stax headphones and our hearing is always affected by previous experiences, so others might really like it.

Maybe I should be asking, what would be the best amp for both the SR-007 mk2 AND the SR-009 ??  ( I think there could be a SR-009 in my near future tongue.gif )

You can read this one, it is a well-written comparison.
