The Stax Thread III - Page 87

post #1291 of 2793

So, looks like a few new STAX items at CES!  From what I saw, a new portable amp, portable DAC/AMP, and entry level amp.  No T3 or 010, but still good to see them rolling new stuff out.

Wow.  STAX alive!

Too bad they focus so much on the portable stuff. Who wants it anyway?

It may seem like a focus on portable, but it might in fact be a change in focus on entry level. 

 

I do enjoy my 002 set up, but it is very niche, and I only use it when traveling in the hotel and remote offices.  It's my "check on" travel rig. :)   I'll be checking out the DAC/Amp and consider it to clean this rig up a little.

 

The new entry level amp looks pretty slick on the outside.  I wonder if they've changed much inside?

He seems to want to sell everything as a package.  I wonder if he'd spit it up?

 

I've always been keen to hear the ED-1.

I'll like to have the srm1 :-)

Maybe we can team up on offers!

The worst part is the shipping.. For me at least.

Me too... UK.  Not to mention the good chance they'll bang me for some VAT.  Buggers.

Not if it's a gift or something along those lines? Well I wouldn't be interested in paying more than 550, max 600$ for amp and lambdas which is probably not doable...

I haven't had the chance to try 007 on 727, but used to pair 007 with 007TII tube amp. That combo was not unacceptable but def. lacks of dynamic and has no control over the bottom end of the 007s which needs lots of grips from the amp.

Personally for what I was seeking for my listening pleasure (and my wallet) :-

 

SR-009/007tA - didn't buy. Had decent depth and imaging but slow for faster pop/hiphop. etc songs. I borrowed & tested a friend's 007tA with a shop's 727 side-by-side using the 009 and continued to borrow the 007tA for home use even after buying the 727

SR-009/727 - bought and enjoyed

SR-009/Electra - bought & enjoying more

SR-007/007tA - didn't buy. Didn't enjoy for same reasons (but different intensity of distaste)

SR-007/727 - would have been a "no buy". But just borderline

SR-007/Electra - love it

 

spkrs01's VAW 8PS has made me curious about that too. I'm looking forward to his findings this weekend.
