SRM-1 vs SRM-1 Mk2

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Ok Stax mafia, I'm looking at purchasing a Stax (most likely SR Lambdas) setup in the next couple of weeks/days when a good looking one pops up, and I was wondering if there is a large difference between the 2 aforementioned amps when paired with the SR Lambdas. I only found one place that talked about both (faust3d) and all it had for the SRM-1 was specs.

 

Thanks in advance!

The difference is quite substantial, the former is AC coupled with very hard to find parts if something were to go wrong but the latter is fully DC-coupled and much easier to service.

Had a feeling you would be the one to answer. :) How does the above affect SQ in both of them?

The SRM-1 Mk2 is cleaner with less character of its own.  The SRM-1 is still good but a bit on the warm side.
