That SR-207 is pretty dang sexy if I may say.

Maybe supposed to be "Hum Noise".  From the description below talking about larger transformers nearby etc?

Ah that's probably the case. The "a" key is pretty far away from the "u" key on a keyboard. XD

 

And yay, I got my unboxing video taken right before the sun decided to disappear in my room. :)

This thread show s many facets of the desire. Either you desire to charge your dusty lambda for three weeks because it's obviously better. Or you prefer the 207 lambda, sure is the best because it's the lesser. But of course the ultimate 5000$ desire is there so we can all be frustrated... either wanting or having it because of the desire of the promised amp... never ending cycle.

$5000? that's just the earspeakers...biggrin.gif it's really $11000 or so, right?

I wonder what the O2 (either version) sounds like out of the SRM-Xh. Most likely inaudible because the amp is so limp and flaccid when it comes to power... devil_face.gif

Actually not bad I have to say, bit rolled off treble, not much detail soundstage seems a bit collapsed, extension to all area's don't seem excelling and low-end is a droopy sounding rather than nice and plump and tight like a high school girls thighs. These are my findings with my recapped Xh and a pair of 007 mk1's. Borrowing my Omega's back on the Xh tames the brightness a tad bit but yeah, both Omega's need to have power. MOAR POWAH!

I'm measuring stuff before I hook everything together.

 

My vampire detecting "Kill a Watt" device says the wall voltage is ~126-134 V rounding up. Measuring the Japanese wall wart while directly connecting it to the wall, it has a voltage of 20.2 V.

its the nature of our education, like every little child's desire for this and that. the only progression of the desire's cycle is ultimately frustration. that sums up the whole audiophile/headfi quest.

your forgot the 10000€ dac plus 3000€ cables and the rest of course the source, the power supply, the status and the need of recognition in various circles like this club, you can try but never ever be satisfied.

How can a sane audio company not raises it flagships price continously when you take this into account. Not much room for an improvement in this business. ymmv

I just checked it out... that could work, but what I did was buy the Dayton audio pucks (http://www.amazon.com/Dayton-Audio-TT25-16-Tactile-Transducer/dp/B0073IXASQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1374820421&sr=8-1&keywords=dayton+audio+puck) and put 2 of them under the seat and 2 behind the back rest (I use a car seat as my computing/gaming/listening chair so it can recline when I just want to listen to music).

 

I don't know how strong the buttkicker would be but it looks easy to setup - being wireless and all. The subpac looks to be the most portable of all the solutions; and most expensive :(

These pleather pads aren't half bad actually. They're much more comfortable than I thought.

 

Heh. You're maybe the first person I've seen to read the manual in such great detail. Props to you! I confess that I've not looked at any of the pieces of documentation that came with my Staxes.

BTW the 207 DOES look sexy in your photo. Never really thought that about any lambda, hmm...

That...took forever to process and upload to YouTube. >_<

 

 

As a heads up, I like ASMR unboxing videos, so this video is rather slow and not to-the-point.

Do you hear any "Oink, Oink" sounds?

BTW, my wife says I look like an idiot when I wear SR-207.rolleyes.gif

Don't use a 100 V wall wart in North America if you love your Stax energizer! redface.gif

What was the final price of that HE60/HEV70 setup?

It seems that no one has a sure recommendation for a proper wallwart for these units...  frown.gif  Power pins have the polarity reversed or something like that for Japanese wallwarts..
