Great price. That makes me think there should be a second hand SR-009 in Japan for roughly 2500. 

How do the second hand market in Japan look for these items? Any interesting forums? Do you have to know someone in Japan to make it happen? :beerchug:

I'm having a big itch. 

There was one for $2600 a few weeks ago. Other than that mostly $3100 or higher

It was here on the FS forum. They sold very quickly. I asked some questions about them like an hour after they were posted and the seller responded they were sold. He said he picked them up off audiogon originally.

Damn, an electrostatic circlotron? I mentioned it as a joke some months back, didn't think it would become a real thing

That price does not include import duties and tax levied by the receiving country. The amount will vary with the country and on how honest the information is on the shipping documents.

And, if you need your warranty you will have to ship back to Japan. I've read some SR-009s still develop a channel imbalance (correct me if I'm wrong), so having warranty locally could be something you'd want to pay extra for.

post #3293 of 11926
Some say that 009 have imbalance issues, maybe coming from the same few people, but nonetheless it worries me some,
That I'm considering getting some 007 for backup.

Are there some stax experts the can confirm that 007 is more reliable and doesn't suffer the same issues as 009 ???

When listening to the SR009, if you shake your head do you listen to noise? My SR009 does an unpleasant noise if I tilt my head... maybe the cable pushed against my shoulders... is this normal?

Maybe a FAQ is in order.

Is a KGSS/KGSSHV considered a big upgrade over a Woo Wee/Beta 22 combo that I am using now? I kinda maybe wanna build more amplifiers. I'm not doing tubes, at least not yet.

Yes! The Woo WEE is fine as a short term stop gap, but hardly a "long term" solution IMO.

I have a wee now.  Its good with lambda's, but the 007 mk1's sound a bit harsh up top and don't punch as tight down low as the kgss did.
