Hi, all: I 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.
Basically have three questions for the veterans:
- 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; people here still feel the SRM1/2 is a viable match to drive the 007A with good sound?.
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.
yes..the 507 is a little lean,bright & bland, you won't see a huge difference by changing amp
Try lambda nova signature, it is fuller, sweeter, very musical & natural, they sound LOVELY.
(my LNS has the 507 leather pad on it)
I've put the 507 back to the box..the 507s are good for monitoring,because their clean sound
