    Released?
    Where is it available?
    What are the specifications?

    Agreed - Whitigir - I think you are mistaken.
    I do not see the D50 anywhere - not even on the Stax website
     
  4. Whitigir
    My bad, the D10! Lol

    Anyone using the L700 with SRM-006TS amp? The 007 amp is out of my price range.

    I am using the L700's with the 353X Energizer. My string is Schiit Gungnir Multibit -> Schiit Mjolinir (using tubes) -> STAX 353X -> L700. Just amazing...

    Apart from 2 tubes per channel on the 007t resulting in a very slight increase in power, there is very little difference between that and the 006t.

    Cheers for the reply. Will go and audition some stax L700 tomorrow.

    SRM-006tS is rather gentle and somewhat like old stax tube amp. SRM-007tA has more energy in high.I tried both of them with my SR-L700.
    Sound characters are different. So one should try oneself.

    And 353x would be a better match then?
     
  11. padam
    Both are good, some think that the 353x (or 323S without XLR input) is Stax's best sounding amp in production (in stock from, the 727 can be modified)
    It is faster, better controlled, more neutral, the 006t is sweeter, more airy with a slight bass bloom, you could get used to either one.

    Thanks Padam. 006t sounds like my cup of tea. I would rather buy locally from a shop so I dont have to worry about Warranty issues.

    I didn't listened to 353X with my SR-L700. At an event, I listened to SR-L300 Limited with SRM-353x BK.
    They were very good pair. The sound was pretty good. So I think driving SR-L700, both SRM-006tA
    and 353x are good choice. So one should listen and decide oneself.
    Only one thing in mind. SRM-006tS and SRM-007tA are different. So not to regret, try oneself Not listening to others so much, including me.

    For what it's worth, the last paragraph of this post from JimL may be of interest.

    "The 006 is basically the T1 with currently available transistors, the 007 is basically the T1 with double the number of output tubes (but only 40% more standing current), and the 600 [006?] is basically the T1 with ECC99 output tubes running at about 10% higher standing current [than the T1]. ..."​

    Having said that, I haven't seen or heard anyone suggest that the L700 needs the extra power beyond the 353x or 006t. So the choice may come down to preferences for sound signature as others have suggested.

    Cheers

    I auditioned the L700 with three different Stax amps, the 353X, 006ts and 007tII. Personally I prefer the tube sound over solid state amps, so I liked the 006 and 007 better than the 353X. Now I think the 006ts does just fine with the L700, I couldn't really tell much difference between the two tube amps when driving the L700. I was set on the 006ts+L700 combo, but ended up with the 007tII because I got a great second hand deal on the L700+007tII.
