(That gold champagne SR-007 is the one I want more than the other versions, though the black SR-007MK2 is my favorite in terms of aesthetics. Can't tell if yours is silver instead of gold.)

Which other STAX do you have? I don't recall, if you mentioned it.


Yeah, she's an old brown and gold Mk I, 707xx. Got it for a killer deal from yahoo japan. The exchange rate is great for americans importing right now. Only other STAX I have is the SR-207. Good headphones, but not as good as the SR-007. But for the price difference that better be the case right? Not that it always is in this hobby. biggrin.gif

Probably going to sell the 207's soon though. I try not to hoard. Two headphones at home and something small and portable for travel is about my max. And I'm pretty attached to my old T30's.

But I don't really like the tiny energizers when you can get the older bigger midgrade amps for a little more. That SRA-12S was only $375 and SRM-1's often go for only a couple hundred dollars.

Thanks for the comments.
I'm planning on upgrading my SRM-252S to something better.
I'm sure my SR-207 cans could use a better amp.
