Wanna buy the Stax sr009, should I? - Page 11

post #151 of 154

Well, I've been talking to Yamas, and they do respond to me (have several times) after a few days and are quite friendly and helpful. I think they are just busy.

So from my limited experience (and 10-year-ago experience when I had Omega1s and talked with Yamas several times) they seem fine.

Does anyone have any thoughts on whether the SRM-006tS could be used to drive the SR-009? I can see that there's some uncertainty about which amps to use with Stax headphones...

Ehh? I heard PJ have issues and delays with warranty. The UK distributers I have heard no problems. Can't see a main distributer in the biggest economy in the world not being any good!

It is incredible if this is the case. Regardless, before buying from Japan direct, look into the downsides and balance that against the price and your appetite for risk.

 

Back the whole point of this thread, I would always say to anyone who loves music to buy the 009s. There are plenty of 'average' wage earners live near me, yet they own Mercedes and BMW top models, which will be worth squat in 5 years, and a Ford or Toyoto can do as well. However the 009s does it better, and should last a life time of enjoyment.....

I got my 009's from PJ in 2011 and fortunately I've never had a problem with them, but assuming I would've while they were still under warranty, then rather than have them sent back to PJ, I'd have had them sorted out in the UK using the money I saved from getting them from PJ which ATT was over £1000, as opposed to what they cost in the UK.

If or when Stax come out with a new flagship, and I decided I wanted one, then I'd do the same thing by getting that new flagship from PJ.
