No problem. I know how intimidating it can be thinking that any decent Stax rig must cost a fortune. Yes, it's still not cheap, but $499 for the WEE plus $580 for the SR-407 is not too terrible (assuming you already own a halfway decent amp or integrated).
Yes, additional costs continue to give me pause. Though, if I had committed earlier in the year and suspended other tweaks, I would have completed the transition already. At least both of my amps will not leave reason for pause - both sound wonderful (custom built OTL amp by 2359glenn & a 1980 Pioneer SX-D7000).
My Stax entry was even less, as my Lambda Pro was $375 shipped including a brand-new set of OE earpads purchased separately. Loving it, today is the first day that I put on a different headphone since I tried the Lambdas. I really like that I can stay in preamp mode with the WA22 and just turn the switch on the WEE to use a different headphone
Yes, stay high and dry Right Coast Woosies!
How's the Bass-Mid-Treble response with those Lambda Pro's? Now you really have me reassessing November tweaks!
