have been using the SR-507 and 006ts for awhile. Sometimes it has been heavenly, at other times a bit lean or bright. Or maybe it's that I feel like I have to turn the volume up too high trying to get dynamics and a sense of fullness. So... There is a SRM-1/Mk2 for sale on the sale forum. Not the prettiest but not the rattiest I've ever seen. Seller asking $400. I have three questions on which I would appreciate your feedback:
- Will this unit provide a markedly upgraded sound vs. the 006ts with my 507s?
- Price range I have seen in my research says $300-$700 (the reviews on this site and info on Wikiphonia). $400 still considered a fair price for a unit with a few dings?
- I may have a chance to get a 007A soon; do people here still feel the SRM1/2 is a good match to drive the 007A?
I know it's tempting, but please don't just say, "Get the 007A (or a 009) and a BHSE." Not in my ballpark. Lots of words from me, I know, but I did due diligence at least via searches. BTW, Spritzer, do you know that Martin-Logan used to say to clean their "naked" panel models by vacuuming against the grill/stator? (I'm a Quad man, myself.)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
PS: I forgot the music. I listen mainly to "classical" music from all periods except modern; small-combo jazz, especially live; ECM jazz (the spacey or environmental stuff); female singers; Ray Charles; blues; classical guitar; folk music plus the usual audiophile discs. I am just starting to get involved in hi-def downloads and will try the Chesky binaurals next.
