SR-009s  ABSOLUTELY require break-in!

 

I can't afford a pair right now.  Give me your address and I'll break in and steal them.  I definitely require a pair!

There is always an amp in the works, not necessarily for Stax.

Congratulations.  Very cool looking toy!

 

And cheap too, well compared to the projects we do... it doesn't get much attention here until that M is a B!  wink_face.gif

Real nice and shiny too.

 

Thanks for the pic.

Waste of money imo, just go with good quality film resistors from companies which can make a stable product.  When I've modified SRM-T1's to take ECC99's I've always used Koa SPR2's and they are dirt cheap:

Plenty of other good choices out there too. 

 

The SRM-007t uses different resistors, the excellent 7W Dale's.

Shiny, and yet it bears a certain resemblance to Bender, a robot character on Futurama.

Can't seem to find whether that thing accepts pro-bias or not confused_face_2.gifbiggrin.gif

So I've decided to get a Stax rig although a "budget" amp compared to those of you with BHSE and the like. The O2 and the SRM-323S will probably be it for me unless I can find a good deal in the future when I can afford more. I just have to hope I can find an O2 in the FS for a good price from a good seller.

 

My best rig so far has been a HD800 rig which I'm not parting ways with but I've sold off my HE6 rig so hopefully I've made the right decision.

post #22320 of 24765

If you pair the 007ta with an O2, yes, any modification will be waste of money.

the headphone is still underpowered & heavily distorted.

 

if you are using a high resolution lambda(lambda signature etc), modding the amp will give you a huge sound improvement 

one of my friend decided to sell his O2mk1 after listening my LS+T1S mod for about 1minute
