SRM-007t (version with normal output) works very well with Stax SR Sigma NB.

 

SRM1 MK2 Pro only C-version and P.P. also very good amps, i forgot it :D

Yes :cool:

I have a SRM-1/mk2 pro (not P.P.), C-version...is this one that different from A and B versions ? :confused:

Works fine with SR-009, SR-5 and SR-Lambda NB, BTW.

SR5
SRX MK3
Lambda NB
Lambda Pro
Sigma NB, but Pro better
Lambda Signature
Lambda Nova Signature
207
404-LE
407
009
007 mk. 1
Omega

Just some random thoughts?
David:

Have you ranked these in any particular order?

Thanks
No particular order.

For me it'd be:
SR-009>>>007 mk. 2>LS
>Sigma NB>Lambda NB>307

Haven't heard much else for longer periods of time.

Is there any authorized Stax dealers in Canada? Can't seem to find any.

All the SRM1 MK2 are good but the older A and B versions are not only older but were built with cheaper parts. The late C Version was improved and especially the pp with 2 pro bias outputs.

So I refurbished my A version with nice new resistors, caps, and diodes.  I also plan on adding a pro plug.  where would it rate now?  how much of a circuit change was there in the late versions?

Hi all, I'm in the process of reconfiguring a SRM-1/MK-2 and want to confirm whether or not the leads into the transformer is properly set up so that I can rewire according to spritzer's post here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/223263/the-stax-thread-new/5835#post_3902577

 

Am I good to go?

if it was a 100V unit originally, you will have to pop open the plastic top and resolder

the wires. If it was a 240V unit, you will be ok.

post #2174 of 4043

This one's indeed a "100V ONLY" unit, an early revision A. How should I be soldering the leads once I get the plastic cap off?

 

EDIT: Would this (http://www.head-fi.org/t/223263/the-stax-thread-new/23610#post_9623345) be the procedure you're referring to?
