Got my SR009

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 

My impression can be desribed by one word..... Wow!!

 

 

Compared to the sr007a, the sr009 definately sound clearer and more spacious. Female vocal performance is sublime on these cans.The only redeeming quality that sr007 has is its comparatively more laidback and warm sound. However they are not too different in sound characteristic to  justify owning both of them.  SR009 is good enough to replace SR007 totally as your main cans imo.

 

As reference i list my equipments

 

Cambridge audio 650c modified

Stax 727A modified with external psu

Cables: Van Den Hul The Orchid

Unable to tell whether 009 is easier to drive but its definately more sensitive volume wise.

Hello,

 

I have a Stax SR-009 with Amp SRM-007t2.

 

It is possible to add to my amp a external PSU like your 727A ?

 

Thank you for your help.

I actually sent away for one of these today and I should get it in a week. Unfortunately I haven't got my BHSE to go with it yet and I don't know what's even happening with that because I haven't gotten a reply to me e-mail (that was a while ago now). I'll give it a little timebiggrin.gif.

Mine have arrived as welleek.gif!!! But then again because I've got no amplifier for them I'm about as excited as a blind man with a telescopetongue.gif. Oh yeah and there's only one problem so far... I got this cable with it (SRE-925S, 2.5m) and I thought it was a better cable, a replacement cable or something but it seems as if it's just an extension cableeek.gif. Oh well I will e-mail STAX or whoever and see if I can send them back. But then again...... I might need them after allbiggrin.gif.

PS: In this site there are headphones, amps and whatever and then who owns it on the site (a list of people) but how do you put yourself on that list if you own it as wellconfused.gif???

Is there any reason at all to buy SR009s directly from Stax vs. buying from Price Japan at ~$1000 less? (Like warranty or quality issues or dealing with them if there are problems or defects?)

Thanks.

I ordered mine from pricejapan

Curious about rgs9200m's question as well. How is warranty handled if you purchase from pricejapan? Also, why does it take 2-3 weeks to ship? The product doesn't seem to be backordered. Thanks.

One head-fier was unlucky enough to have to ship his pair back to price japan 2, if not 3 times If I recollect, so it got expensive in the end. I believe the issues mostly occured during the first builds but still, I'd feel more comfortable going through a local distributor as long as the markup is reasonable and they provide sufficient service.
As for the slow output, I believe these are mostly built to order and they probably work batches at a time so you may or may not have to wait so long depending on when you order.
