Stax - Page 6

post #76 of 173
The bass on my SR-5NB has more resonance and the midbass is stronger but it does not have the extension that a Lambda/Lambda Pro has. It definitely does have a healthy amount of bass.

Really????????

Are you sure?, I don't hear other people moaning about it.

Of course I'm sure. If you've never compared anything directly then it's hard to know if it is as good as the amps that came before and those that came after. I quite like the SRM-1 Mk2 and the SRM-3 simply isn't as good, less extension and power.

Forgive him, Birgir, for he knows not what he says...

TDL, just so you know, it is unlikely that there is any English-speaking individual who knows (and cares) more about Stax than Spritzer. If there is, they certainly do not post on this board frequently.

Good amp and works great with my 404.

It's a good match to any of the Stax phones except for the Omega and Sigma lines. It also works well with the Koss ESP950 and both Senn HE's so a good all rounder.

Is there any sonic benefit of the SRM-T1S over, say, the plain SRM-T1? I know it has balanced inputs, but I also know those doesn't always equal better.

I seem to remember you saying somewhere that you preferred the SRM-T1 to all the variants, Spritzer.
post #84 of 173
The basic circuitry of all the T1's is the same (all use the same PCB) and use mostly the same components but the input section of the T1 is simpler so I heard a bit of difference but it was tiny. The T1 is also easier to mod which is a plus in my book.

I just ordered a SRM-323II + SR-404, you got me totally hooked to stax KrMathis, I still LOVE that SR-X! Now I'm also looking to upgrade source, looking towards the NAD S500 (if I'm lucky) and the NAD C542. I most likely want a NAD since I'm hooked to that sound, and they are also pretty warm sounding, which I read is good for the SS amp's of stax and the 404.

Great progress!
Nice to see that my former SR-X/MK3 and SRD-7 setup got you on the "right track", and that you now take several steps up the Stax ladder.

Thats the spirit!

I was thinking starting electrostatic, would SR 303's be good phones to start a budget electrostatic system? or would you recomend the SR 404's for the extra $$?
post #89 of 173
The only difference besides the looks is the cable as far as I know. If you get something 'serious' (like an SRM-1/MK2 or better) the 404 is probably the better choice.

The SR-303 makes a really nice starter system imo.
For $70 more you can get an SR-404, where as said above the wide format cable are the difference. Its a slight difference, but I can't really say if its worth the price difference or not.

Either 'phone will give you a really nice taste of the Stax sound.
