Sadly, just a man cave (w/ my home theatre) after 8pm...kids bed time.  During the day, it's a family room with toys, etc...

Now all you need is the T2, BHSE, KGSSHV and the Megatron all in one room.

And a new addition to the home. I'm a simple man, I'd be happy with just the T2. :p

Everyone here is INTERESTED of course!  Hahaha.  But not many can afford it, and even some that could are put off by the complexity of dealing with an auction in Japan- money, language, shipping-  danger Will Robinson!

Asking on the behalf of someone.. Are the Stax amps from Japan easy to convert to 230v? Some of the amps that don't require soldering for the conversion? There is of course the srm-252 with its wall wart but what about other amps? Thank you..

Not me yet, but I'll make one last feeble run at the Omegas.

When you see a 110V, 240V, etc. and a pointer next to it on the back side, that means that it is equipped with a jumper block. So no soldering required.

Sometimes all the voltages are written on the back, which is also an indication that there is an inside jumper for changing.

 

All of the newer amps (like SRM-323) need soldering, this is more common in the older versions (like SRM-T1), but not on all of them.

^Thank you. It seems my T1 has either no or internal jumpers. It does say 100V;117V;220V:240V on the back so I guess it must have jumpers on the inside. The soldering is quite simple from what I have heard, right?

Yes, difficult to tell if there is a jumper inside or not, but on the older amps soldering is definitely easier than on the newest ones (but I think that even the newer ones are not that challenging either).
