Know any lambda which the T1 isn't good with? Personally, I'd gladly pay a little more than $650 for a 006 if it is fairly new.

If I order from Japan, I can get for example the SRS-4170 for less than *half* the price of what it would cost to buy here. That's not including shipping costs, taxes and such but still a little tempting. I do love the STAX sound, IMHO there is nothing that compares on the dynamic side.

Don't know about the Stax built ones, but the DIY KG version is dead silent (and hot!).

Yup, it does warm up the room a bit.  A small trade off for a truly magnificence sound.

NB Lambda's have that natural, slightly over-emphasized but very seductive and well presented mids, slight 3d to the sound (at least with some songs I've listened to).

 

SR-202, quite balanced sounding with a slight boost of brightness to the treble (not to the extend that'll hurt your ears). 

 

Both are nice sounding stat's that sound drastically different to each other.

 

If you're buying one of either, my suggestion is buy both.

Thanks exactly what I needed. Screwy ad description and crappy pics got me wondering. Electromod it is then.

Still don't get it.

 

The person I know who lives in Iceland has lots of Stax gear.

How is the headband floating above the duck's head? I call shenanigans (but I still want to use that duck as an avatar).

 

DefQon, the deals you get from YJ are just irresistible. It's a shame SR-007s show up so rarely as I might be interested in picking them up + a SRM-717 if I can scoop the combo up for ~$2000 or less. Even $1500 is too much to pay for the SR-007s IMHO and I remember a few pairs going for ~$1k years ago (before the hype train picked up).
