The SR-007mk1s are sold but the SRM-717 is now available... the buyer backed out.
* Asking price will include shipping within North America but buyer to cover paypal fees *
It is with a heavy heart that I must part with this set up. I can't justify keeping them when both our cars need repairs.
It is the best sounding headphone set-up I have ever heard .
From what I've read, the SRM-717 is considered the best Stax amp for the SR-007mk1. It is considered a better amp than the SR-727 which replaced it. I also tried the 007mk1's with the SRM-007A, the tube amp, and the 717 is a much better match. The back says 100v but there is a set of jumpers inside that allow quick change to all voltages. No step up/down transformers needed.
( the triangle on the volume knob in the photo is some tape residue from the previous owner.)
Anyway... The earspeakers are in very good condition. The only thing I can see that shows their age is that the elastic for headband is a little stretched out. If you have a small head, that might need addressing but it had no bearing on my use.
The flight case has a little dent in one corner but the cardboard box and manual are included.
The SRM-717 has more signs of age with some scuffs and a few dings here and there. Sounds wonderful though and at this price, well you are getting it at about <1/2 of new and several hundred under what you'd see a "clean" looking one used.
No box, manual or power cord included with the amp..
Prices to split the package would be $1750 for the SR-007mk1 and $1050 for the SRM-717.
Price does not include shipping or paypal fees.
I will include the vinyl dustcover. The earspeakers have been covered except when in use and have no channel imbalance.
PS. Stand not included
Reasonable offers considered especially if local.
