Ok, thanks for your help. I think i make first a tube rolling with the RCA clear tops. :wink:

Really depends on what's installed at the moment and also what source you are using with the 009.

 

I see you also seem to be selling one of best amps to use with 009?

Hello,

 

i will only use the SRM-007t with the Lambda Signature not for SR-009 and SR 007. I testet some stax amps (SRM-T1S, SRM-006t/tS, SRM-MK2 Pro, SRM-323S, SRM-717, SRM-007t, SRA-12S) and in my ears the Lambda Signature + SRM-007t was the best in resolution, soundstage and bass, followed by the SRM-717 but the SRM-007t has to aggressive highs. :(

Your SRA-12s would be a good match for the SR-009's but I see you have now sold it :confused: 

 

Personally I prefer Japanese tubes for Stax energisers ideally toshiba or alternatively matsusita. I would avoid chinese or soviet versions as I find these very bright indeed!

The Lambda signature is known for being rather bright supposedly due to the very thin driver membranes, have you tried the L Nova Signature?

I had a second SRA-12S ;)

 

Yes i tried also the Nova Signature, its my second favorite Lambda modell but it has not the open airy sound of the Signature that i like it so much. Note: The Lambda Nova Signature pairs very well with the SRA-12S. :gs1000smile:

 

Its hard to find here in Europe RCA clear tops or Japanese 6CG7 tubes. :(   

 

What Do you think about this tubes?

I don't think this is true at all. I got my fine RCA cleartops from Tube Depot and they will ship to you with no issues.

This is from their FAQ:

 


I want to place an international order. Will you ship to my county? 

Yes, we ship worldwide.

Here, just go to this: tubedepot.com/products/6cg7-6fq7-rca-clear-top

$50 for RCA clear tops seems a bit steep

You can buy them from a couple of UK suppliers like watford valves https://www.watfordvalves.com/product_detail.asp?id=3181  and HighEnd workshopshttp://www.highendworkshop.co.uk/index.asp but these seem expensive to @ £30 each, especially for a quad.

 

I always get my spares off ebay in the us, the RCA clear tops are quite plentiful including matched pairs. For the Japanese manufactures particularly the Toshibas you will need to bide your time as they come up occasionally but are quite sought after.

post #2228 of 11932

True on the price, but I like to support my tube dealers out there.

The Lambda Signature isn't that bright. Try the 307. That's bright.

 

The LS might be a little edgy and slightly hard in the treble, and sure it isn't mellow.

post #2230 of 11932

Agreed, but its the "brightest" of the vintage Lambdas but also the fastest in terms of dynamics too.

Any interest in a SR-007? Mine are F/S

post #2232 of 11932

Mind if I ask why you are selling? Going for 009 or some other Stax instead or.... ?

post #2233 of 11932

The 009's just do it for me. Too much expenditure as of late so mk 1 has to go.

post #2234 of 11932
Damn like that
