Sporadic selling activity, majority of feedback from buying lower priced goods, first two negative feedbacks from buyers within a week of the current listing. No, feedback doesn't matter at all rolleyes.gif

you dint get what i wanted to say.

 

whats feedback ? whats its importance ? think about it .

 Now, as you have to meet him personally why should feedback matter.

post #20943 of 24765

It's a good indicator not to get your hopes up. If you mean that the option for personal verification of the goods negates the need for feedback then that is only partially true. The two recent negative feedbacks imply that the ebayer's recent sales, maybe even of the same item, are shady. Still, the best of luck to whoever takes the time to find out, I'm rooting for them.

if it was a HD600 , i would understand .

 

BUT THIS IS ORPHEUS !!!

 

97% (feedback) , you will get an orpheus at awesome price .

My 3.6R cross over to the ribbon @ 1.800 Hz IIRC. The  Apogee full-ribbon speakers still have some followers who swear they still sound excellent albeit they are very difficult to drive properly. Would be interesting to have ribbon cans too. Or are there ribbon headphones already on the market?

 

I seem to remember that Mark Levinson designed his original amp for the big Apogees. But I could be wrong.

 

Best regards, Jörg.

the only thing I don't like is the high frequency brightness

IIRC the original Lambda Pro was designed together with/ for the Mercedes Benz car factory. It was meant to monitor /measure noise in the car.

I must be the standout who found my Lambdas (SR-303) to actually be a little warm in terms of total sound signature (with an SRM-Xh amp).

post #20948 of 24765
You are not alone, in fact, that is the standard description of the SR-303.

That Orpheus on eBay, if you do a Google Image search you'll see it was taken from a Head-Fi classified:

Not sure if the seller is legit but it's pick-up only so as long as you dont pay for it in advance... unless you turn up at his place with GBP5000 and he and his big burly friends plan to mug you.

Many thanks for this Currawong. Very interesting insight.

Do I get it right: there are building an amp, which exceeds the performance of the T2 and will sell for about the price of the 009? 

post #20954 of 24765

I don't think they've set a price on it yet.  They just said that the T2 sold for the same amount as the SR-Omega.

post #20955 of 24765

Which one of you won this Beyerdynamic ET-1000 just now?

 

It's one of those uncommon vintage electrostatic sets that don't appear all that often, and for some reason, there isn't too much information on the Internet about them. All I know is that they're a 1976 design, roughly when the SR-Sigma was released and three years before the SR-Lambda's debut.

 

Maybe one of you could chime in as to how it sounds relative to the Stax gear we're all familiar with?

 

On another note:

Good question there. If you want a "no bass" headphone, go look at the Audio-Technica AD700 (or the GE H-22 if you really want to suffer). All the Lambdas I've tried have more bass than the AD700, easily.

 

That said, I didn't really have a good frame of reference for what people think of as "good bass" until I got to audition Mad Lust Envy's HE-400. It was then that I actually noticed that the HE-400 and Lambda bass presentations were actually quite similar in a lot of ways, but the HE-400 had a bit more visceral impact at the same volume level. (Of course, the opposite frequency responses of the HE-400 and SR-Lambda also complicate the overall perception a bit.)
