No, SR-007 is Omega II's. Round earpieces. MK1 or MK2

 

Lamdas pros are vintage stuff.

 

Newer ones would be called lambda SR-407 or SR-507 etc.

Oh, I thought the Woo Wee was something different.  Somewhere on here there's an ad for an SR-007 mk2 for $1500, which is a pretty good price, plus the option to bundle it with a Woo amp (can't recall which).

 

Anyway, if you want a Lambda Pro, this is probably a better deal if you don't mind having a Stax energizer instead of the Woo: http://www.head-fi.org/t/686628/fs-stax-lambda-pro-with-srm-1-energizer-modified-for-one-normal-one-pro-output

The Woo Wee is an energizer ($490 or so US), which means you still need a speaker amp with at least 3W output to power the energizer which then in turn drives the earspeakers.

 

The SRM-1 is an electrostatic amp (not an energizer) for driving the earspekers directly, this one looks to be modified to power both pro and normal biased Stax earspeakers (Professional (580 V) and a Standard/Normal Bias (230 V)).  It looks to be a good package for a good price.

Well, I'll be...

Somebody buy this so that I can borrow it.

Here, here, Nathan, I think you should take one for the team

:biggrin:

Argh, so tempting! Any comments on the quality of the lambda pros? Does that seem like a good price?

 

I like the idea of the WEE being able to match it with normal amplifiers. I don't think I could ever justify a separate stax amp... at least not right now.

post #1522 of 1850

First off I have to say that I have never heard any of these myself, but will comment on others feedback I have read, so take this with that in mind.

 

The Woo Wee is a very good option to drive Stax.  I know of a quite a few people that are doing this and are very happy.

 

The Lambda Pro should sound very similar to my lambdas that you heard, and driving them on a good speaker amp will most assuredly make them sound better than my lambdas off the toppings T32 I use.

 

Of the two the SRM-1 lambda pro deal looks like a very good deal IF it all works...

 

The Woo Wee deal looks a little high in price to me, again if there is no issue with the lambdas or the woo.

 

But you know haggling the price down is the way to go on both...:biggrin:

 

My preference would be to get the WOO WEE combo at a lower price or new...$499 for the WEE new ($300 on audiogon), lambda pro - under $300,

Oh, that WEE and lambda pro price is pretty lousy then. If WEE's are $300 and lambda pros around $250... that's much lower than the guy's asking price.

 

I sent a message to Woo (but haven't heard back yet) about the grounding scheme in the WEE, since I think it has to be used with an amp that has shared grounds.

post #1524 of 1850

So I heard back from Woo and he said that the WEE can be used with a bridged amp, which I think means it does not share a ground inside. Kinda moot though since the wee on the forums is gone now.

 

In other news, I picked up a FiiO e17 and a1. The e17 is actually really nice, and I'm feeding it into the a1 (speaker amp) to power my HE-6. I like the combo, though I don't know if I'll hang onto it, lol. It was a sorta random trade that came up and I figured I'd just try it out. Anyone have an e09k to complete the stack? I think it's actually fairly popular, as I don't see them come up for sale very often.

Is anyone thinking of going to Axpona this year, April 25-27 in Chicago?  I'm considering it.  Here are some photos from last year: http://www.axpona.com/Section_Home.asp?SID=1055

 

The list of exhibitors is impressive.  It's not really a headphone thang, but speakers are cool too.

I'll go if you pay for the room and the airplane ticket. Whats a grand or two between friends.

:cool:

I was thinking of taking the train from North Dakota - nice and cheap!  Hotel, probably $50/night if one were to shop around.

post #1528 of 1850

Not a headphone amp, but if anyone wants an original Bryston 2B, here it is.  Looks a bit beat up cosmetically, but Bryston amps are built like tanks inside and out (20-year transferrable warranty), so it probably still sounds fine.  http://winnipeg.kijiji.ca/c-buy-and-sell-musical-instruments-pro-audio-recording-equip-Bryston-2B-power-amp-W0QQAdIdZ547367748

post #1529 of 1850

That's not bad... but old enough that it might actually be beyond the 20-year warranty.

Crap, the deals thread just got shut down because people refused to follow the posting rules :mad:
