Wow, totally missed that line.  I have the flu but thats not an excuse for totally spacing out and then posting.  Posting sick and posting drunk aren't that much different.

They happen. Happened to me. No big deal.

Sorry to hear that. My wife will need to pry my 009s from my cold, dead hands.

Well you already have the damn speakers I'm buying.

 

I'd keep them if we could afford both! :D

 

It'll be okay. Getting the Leben 300XS so a prime headamp if happening as well as a good speaker amp.

What speakers if you don't mind me asking? Vapors from Ryan by any chance?

Have you heard the Leben or are you buying that component blindly?

I had them for a few years. Very nice. Great imaging. Used my B52 for a preamp.

Auditioned the entire system multiple times now. Though I'll be A/Bing the Leben and Line Magnetic 218 one more time before actually handing over the money. 

 

Why do you ask? Just wondering. I've had a few people ask me this. 

 

Today the Line Magnetic seemed slightly more thin and distorted than the Leben. The Leben was more full sounding and while slightly rolled off in the highs it did modern music better because of this.

Anyone willing to sell or know a place where I can source a replacement cable for the SR-001's used or brand new? I've posted in the Cables F/S section so if any of you Stax guru's here know where I can get some (looking at the Stax mafia) can be either the SR-003 pro-bias termination or just the SRM-001 portable adapter one. Audiocubes doesn't seem to stock any besides an interconnect they mention on the site which has no picture.

I had the ECD-1 a few years back. It was easily beaten by my later Arcam CD-23 CD-player (resolution-wise, the bass was better on the Electrocompaniet). But the best up to now is stlll my Cayin DA-2 which I retro-fitted with NOS Siemens/Halske CCa tubes. Better resolution even than the Arcam and the best bass. Even a very expensive Audio Note DAC couldn't beat it ...

 

Just my 2 cents.

post #20547 of 24765

I still love the ECD-1

post #20548 of 24765

So the bass is again in a box. I prefer my Maggies, no box. OK, they need oodles of power to drive and their XOs are crap. You have to invest a little know-how and money ...

I was in Japan a few months ago and picked up a clearance SRS-005S set (already have one SRS-005 set for the office and a 006/404 setup for the home office).  Was originally going to sell the new one (got a smoking deal on it) but decided to keep it.  I'm not an electrical guru, so I don't know what type of wallwart to pick up.  Per the recommendations on head-fi, on the previous one I picked up a Jameco wart, but that one is no longer in production.  I can get a similar one from Jameco, but it's unregulated versus the regulated wall wart from the past.  Anyone know if unregulated will be an issue for this Japanese market 252S amp?

A number of people whose ears I generally agree with have commented that it sounds pretty bad is all.
