There's a thread dedicated to entry level Stax :-)

results are in: Omega MkI are worth 2x a new 009, nearly 4x a new MkII (PriceJapan)

 

and SRM-T2 now go for US$15K - not too bad for an amp that ~"has some audible hum, but normal..."

That seems totally nuts to me!

I can't believe it went for so much! I was watching this auction since it first appeared. Wow :eek:

My power amp, a British made valve amp uses 4 x EL34 valves .........just like the T2 ........ perhaps that's why the SRD7 SB mk 2 I have sounds so good?

Well, Omega period. There's not really a Mk2 or follow-up of the original Omega.

To be fair that one was also in superb condition, especially given the presence of the cardboard outer box and the likelihood that the replacement ear pads are supple like few units of this vintage. It also had one of the highest serial numbers I've seen yet.

But nonetheless given the results I might no longer feel too audacious to seek a straight trade for a MDR-R10.

Hey all,

Unfortunately the headband assembly of my SR207's broke.  The STAXUSA replacement part is $150 dollars, which seems a bit steep for me.  I was wondering if there is any demand for stax SR 207s basic system with amp on ebay or other sites if they were to be sold without the headband assembly?

 

Thanks.

That Omega sold for a ripped/inflated price and beyond the max bid amount buyee supports. The Japanese are hardcore when it comes to bidding wars.

It may have been a Chinese businessman for all we know ;)

Wow, the same buyer bought both the amp and the headphones. Big spender...

But the going rate was south of $4k quite a while ago. With their numbers, well-kept units simply have to appreciate. They can't stay that cheap...

post #1198 of 3293
Yeh its average going price is bit over 3.5k to 4.5 anything above and its stretching it been for years minus a certain cheap deal. 7-8k for it is just wtf.

Gotta agree with Defq. Especially considering the fragile state of the headbands and irreplaceable drivers of the Omega.

These two factors are very important, misplace the earspeakers and the headband arc assembly/gimble rods going into the driver housing will break. Once you get imbalance or any sort of other issues with the drivers that require replacing, that's it you're done for, send them off to get replacement drivers and don't be surprised it's fitted with 007 MK2 drivers.

 

Btw Merry Xmas everybody.
