I've ordered the Stax 507 from PriceJapan.  I haven't ordered the amp yet, but I plan to purchase it from the US rather than from Japan because I don't want to deal with an extra step-down transformer and also don't want to have to deal with repair/warranty issues with an imported product. I have budgetary concerns and am considering a Stax SRM 323 S.   I've also seen discussions of the Stax SRM-1/MK-2 and the Stax SRM 717.  Would the SRM-1/MK-2 be a better alternative to the 323 S?  I know the SRM1MK2 would be an older amp with its own aging issues.  And the 717 might be out of my price range.  I read that the 507 is considered bright and that the 323 is fairly neutral and that might not be a good combination.  However, wouldn't EQ be a good fix for that?  That brings another question.  What would be good EQ software?  I'm running a late 2012 IMac 27 with BitPerfect app.  I don't have a DAC yet but that would be the last part of the puzzle once the amp was purchased.
