That classified is a big joke and I hope no one buys it from that person. It is literally thievery when looking over that headphone's condition.

It is indeed, wish ebay had some measures to control sellers flipping sales or so. But that just becomes more of a benefit for ebay themselves.

Thankfully I found an YH1000 a while back for less than half the price of what nkkuma / musichen is asking, and in much better condition.

 

It's a shame he's flipping such a nice set of Sigmas. If someone pays that ridiculous price, I hope they can at least enjoy them. While not worth almost the price of a used SR-007mk1, they're still really nice.

All this talk about headphone values vs. current selling prices makes me think back to my Lambda + SRD-7/SB combo. Only cost me $250 shipped, and that seemed like the right price at the time. Obviously, a Lambda with no transformer box should have sold for less.

 

But after looking through Head-Fi B/S/T and eBay for a while, that didn't seem like the case any more, and so I had to re-adjust my recommendations with the doubled prices in mind.

 

Let's see how much this one sells for in the end...it'll probably be in the $400s by the time this is over.

It is raining STAX oldies now. There are at least three NB Lambda up at Ebay simultaneously

The mids & bass are FULL of emotion energy,

I feel the Pro has the best vocal & bass, most realistic highs,compare to my other lambdas, closest to the recording

 

Didn't hear the lambda normal bias yet

maybe i am too excited?

I'm not trying thread crap here, but I would like to come back to this topic...

 

I'm curious about the voltage swing of the modified SRM-727 vs the modified 007T (using 6S4A tubes).

 

Which amp can swing more?

Yeh I figured you had them already (just a joke from me expecting you to buy the one's listed on ebay). The Sigma Pro's is one I'd love to own and try out, due to the design of the housing chamber and position of the stators, they supposedly give a very unique imaging and soundstage attribute to the sound.

There's 4 actually (one being sold AS-IS with a damaged stator housing). I'm bidding on all of them for the sake of using the stators for modding.

The Lambdas really pressed on my ears when I owned them. The 009s and current SR007s are a world more comfortable.

I find the Lamda's to be the most comfortable out of the 3 Stax I've worn, the Omega and 007 Mark 1's. 

post #20981 of 24765

Those Lambdas sold for a pretty reasonable price considering their condition.  There's also a Sigma Pro on ebay.co.uk for a decent price.

post #20982 of 24765

I got a Stax SR-303 in near mint condition with an SRM-Xh, with three different Lambda pads, for about $600 all things considered. Good deal?

If this is the one

Apparently they are out of balance

It depends on which Lambda model you're talking about.

 

I find the SR-Lambda far more comfortable than the SR-202 and SR-303 precisely because of the lower clamping force of the vintage headband/arc design compared to the Nova/numerical models' arc.

 

I haven't tried the SR-507, SR-007, or SR-009, so can't comment on those, but if they're higher than a vintage Lambda, I probably won't like them as much in comfort terms.

 

Earpad type and condition probably play into it as well; the SR-202 and SR-303 have the same headband/arc style, but the SR-303's pads were noticeably softer, and thus significantly more comfortable to wear.

post #20985 of 24765

The 009 is the most comfy I've tried due to them not using the blocky lambda frame.
