Wait...wut? -_-

 

Yeah, that makes no sense. Electrets only have four pins because they don't even draw bias voltage. I hope you're either joking or seriously drunk.

post #24752 of 24765

Has anybody compared SRM-006tS with SRM-600LTD? is it good idea to replace my 006ts with 600ltd for use with sr-407 or somehing better (probably still not enough for O2...)?

Thanks

Hey I'm not much older and I get most of my alcohol for free.

I'm not joking few guys have posted here that it sounds better so I tried my old SR-30's on my Xh and it definitely sounded better than the SRD-6 adapter. Try it out.

So, this observation wasn't even carried out on an amp that has both a Pro and Normal bias output (SRM-1/MK2, T1, etc)? confused.gif

I would try it out myself but I won't have access to any of the stuff I own until the 26th, since I'm on vacation.

Haven't followed on Stax for some time. Tus-chan, did you sell off your "portable" rig yet? Hence all the Wanted classified-s?

post #24756 of 24765

Yes, I actually managed to sell every single part of it very quickly (still waiting for the confirmed buyer to pony up the funds for the Little Dot 1+ so I can ship, though). And yes, that is exactly why I have all the Wanted ads out - I don't have anything of real value to use my shiny new SRM-1-MK2 with anymore, and I want to get cream of the crop Lambdas.

Props to you :).

 

I wish you luck on your Stax journey. 

 

I'll be staying away from huge setups, so Stax will be for another day. 

post #24758 of 24765

And a TH900 isn't a big setup?

Nope :). I plan on just going out with it using an ipod. Go ahead, ridicule me tongue.gif

 

 

On a more serious note, It has one less box than a Stax setup. DAC-->SRM-->SR vs DAC/O2-->TH900

post #24760 of 24765

Couldn't you get a decent stax system going with the price of a TH900?

I didn't like any of the Lambdas sadly. The only pair I liked was the SR-009, and that's also out of reach.

No SR-007's for you to test? Funny, I didn't take you as the 009 kinda chap. Can't remember where I read (maybe from your 202 impressions) but I thought you liked warmer signatures?

007 was kinda bland.. Of course meet impressions aren't always the best for listening. But the 009s blew everything out of the waters. 

So if I were to settle down, that would be the one I'd get.

 

Hmm. I like vocals alot. But the 202s were a bit too bright for me, making those high female notes painful. Which strikes strange, as I didn't have that problem with the Kaedes. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding something.

I did warn ya about the 202 being potentially bright for some users. Imo the 009 is bright as well but I guess that ethereal in your face out of nowhere sound makes up for it.

If you want the best sounding headphone for vocals especially female vocals imho any of the higher tier AT + HA-02 amp is the best to date I've heard for vocals/treble music. Better than any Stax.

Too much off-topic posting lately, so I've restarted the thread here:
