Lol, I highly doubt that.. Must say those sigmas go for a pretty darn high price, I can't say I think my sigma NB is worth such prices purely based on sound, but I only have a T1 to power them..

 

Looking closer at the pictures it seems to be NB.. It comes with srd7 and it has got the kettle cable.

I was trolling, no way those are good prices for Sigma Pro's. Don't expect to pay more than $750 - 850 for a Sigma Pro. I paid $650 for mine.

Isn't even a Sigma Pro, just a NB. Got my NBs for 180$, beat that ;)

Well I thought ist is a Sigma pro with an SRD 7 MK2. That would have been a great price, at least here in Europe!

For a normal Bias with SRD7 you are right it is way too much. Also want one for 180:o I would even pay €.redface.gif

180 pounds for Sigma NB is a very good deal assuming its intact and working.
post #128 of 197
180$, 130€, 105£.. Any other currency of interest, lol?
They are working and have no cosmetic flaws beside aging in general. Think it is my best deal yet.
post #129 of 197
$180 is even better. It reminds me of a close Omega + T1 deal a seller almost sold to me for a 800 euros.
post #130 of 197
That would have been amazing to say the least.
post #131 of 197
I bid on those too then someone told him the real wort

Would have bought it if not described as junk. So my search goes on.

Anything vintage is listed as junk. The majority of my Stax stuff (20+) are from YJ. The seller will list obvious defects and faults if required. If the item is sold as-is with some wear and tear or foam deterioration then it's listed as junk its the way the Japanese sellers describe there items.

 

That deal is hard to beat considering the value's worth of each item included is at.

Hello everyone, I just got a normal bias lambda and they're distorting. To be more specific they sound alright (albeit there's a channel balance that solves itself in a few minutes) if the volume control is before the 11 o'clock position but after that they begin to distort. They're a particularly late production with a serial in the 30000 range and there's no foam or dust in the driver. They seem to be getting slightly better as I leave them connected to the amp. Could it be that they just need to charge up the diaphragm after almost a decade of being unused (judging by their condition) or something more sinister like a rusted connection?
