Sorry, mate! Apologies!
In that context, it's rather funny!
Can't remember the name, but there are some 10 watt diy class a mono blocks I heard about some time ago.. Might be good
take a look at some T amps. inexpensive, and some sound excellent!! good offering at parts express. do some searching.
My PC-Rig :
The dying Yamaha AX-470 is in my living room, with SRD-7/SBmk2 (bought after the time of the first picture):
Thus, I'm looking for a decent class AB speaker amp, and I don't know if there is anything but the Marantz PM6004/5.
T-Amp are great, with a very crispy and dynamic sound, but I want more smoothness, more volume...e-stats have enough clarity/transparency by their own.
It seems to me that my Sigma sounds significantly more clean and coherent from my T1 than emotiva mini-x + srd-6. The sound stage seems bigger and instruments further away on the emoitva, though, and it also delivers some better bass kick. The treble seems a little soft and subdued on the T1 in comparison. Well, the hole T1 seems a little soft in comparison, actually.
Tested with my x-can v8 as pre-amp.
What I make of it is that the emotiva + srd6 has more headroom and powers the Sigmas better, but technically lacks refinement.
The test was done at fairly loud volume levels, louder than I'd normally be listening.
Did you leather wrap those SR-5's?
If I can only afford to go up to around ~$400 is it worth it for me to try bidding on Lambda sets or is it most likely just going to lead to a lot of heart break until I can save up more? Especially considering my bidding can only go up to around $300 with mail forwarding and shipping fees being $100. Also I see a lot about Lambda Pro and Signature and the numbered series but I haven't seen much about the Nova series, how does it compare to the two?
The last LS and SRM1 MK2 combo went for about north of $700.
LS can be found anywhere between $300-450. SRM1-MK2 (depending on the model, dual NB, Pro or P.P) anywhere between $250-600.
this is pretty spot on.
Its hard to price this stuff out. if buying cans without an amp, it can also get crazy. plus ebay complete sales sometimes isn't very helpful. and when it is, you can use that as the benchmark for close to the top price. prices of LS, LNS, and 404LE are difficult to figure out. at least for me. hard to see what a "fair" price actually is.
I always need to watch my pennies with a new baby in the house. so I bought a used, untested srm1mk2 with two normal bias plugs. I changed all the caps, resistors, and diodes for under $30. and I plan on adding a pro bias circuit. its a lot of work, but it will end up saving me hundreds of dollars.
