So the buyer is supposed to use the Lambda pros on a SRD-7 with only normal bias plugs??? tried that and it sounds really, really crap

True, but at the prices the vintage Stax Lambda's go for on ebay, gon and the F/S section here, $300-350 for the combo is a good deal.

Might go for more. Price is okay... suppose I dont need another pair of lambda pros so I'm good.

Yeah the last LP mint condition by itself sold for $450 after I told the seller that he/her asking price of $800 is a bit too much.

That's why I have the HE60 and HE90....  tongue.gif

post #22088 of 24765

How many HE90's do you have spritz?

post #22089 of 24765

Just one but it is just a HE90 frame with a few different drivers that I can swap in and out.  Can't stand the Sennheiser drivers...

[...] a few different drivers that I can swap in and out

 

Wut? How is this possible?

post #22091 of 24765

Anything is possible if you know enough... or don't know enough to know something is impossible. 

 

DIY drivers for the HE90 shell:

 

 

Lambda Nova Signature drivers in the HE90 shell:

I think more photos should be shown on the audio equipment we have, whatever that gear is.

post #22093 of 24765

I'm on the fence between 323 with 507 and 006 with 504, I know the lamba sound very dynamic to begin with thats why i am leaning toward 006/407. Anyone can share their thoughts? I don't want to go vintage route and much prefer new production. I am such a fan of the tube sound (clear as a bell, big layering and euphonics) Thanks a bunch.

Hmmm.... I'm thinking of replacing the coupling cap on my SRM-T1 because it has been "singing along" to the signal, for quite some time now. How do I start though? I'm a total noob at DIY although I've been keen on starting for a while now. I can get all of the tools I need from the lab I work at.

 

^the SRM323s is supposed to be the best mid-range Stax amp available. You're going to have to listen to them yourself to be 100% sure that its for you, of course.

There are no coupling caps in the SRM-T1 or any of these Stax amps.  They are all fully DC coupled.  Hasn't stopped people from swapping out the very good polyprop caps with V-caps or even silly stuff like the Jupiters with "tremendous results".
