With my KGSShv on the way to me now (off-board, 2sa1968, 14mA) and already owning the 007, I'm wondering what else is worth looking at. I highly respect the 009 but don't want to own one. I'm always open for an SR-4070 but that is proving elusive. What else?
The SR-003 mkII is something I'd love to try - probably with custom molds for the tips. This is almost a sure thing due to the low price and complete difference from my O2.
The SR-207 is being suggested to me, as the least obnoxious/bright of the new Lambda models. Also the cheapest which is a bonus. Hoping this would sort of be an HD800 type experience, rather different from my O2 but enjoyable in its own way.
What else is worth looking at? I remember enjoying the 404LE but not sure if it's all that different than the 207. Also the prices now seem a lot higher than they used to be, due to scarcity I suppose.
