Damn son, when Im travelling it will only be the SXC550 and the DX200 with whatever iem I feel like bringing. This is on another level lol.
I know ... but I am travelling so much that this effectively replaces my home stereo. I hardly have time to listen to it, expect the days I am working in London...

Can anyone compare the old STAX SRM-007tII with the new
STAX SRM-D50 using a quality external DAC and the old
STAX SR-009?

Thanks!

I compared D50 with T1 on L700 with external Dac Rme adi2pro for 1 week on several days.
The T1 is much better - and the old T1 is the winner.

What was better about it? Do you prefer tube amps?

No
I do not prefer tubes, but with the l700 nd t1, it is a perfect match for me - it sound more realistic, like live

What about the SRM-D50 sounds less realistic? I'm trying to narrow down what you mean by that since it could mean a lot of different things like transparency, frequency response, etc.

The T1 & T1S and T1W are a better match to Lambdas design. May not work as good with the SR009 though.

Purk,
Have you tried the D50 with the old Stax SR009? How does the combination sound? Worth it over the STAX SRM-007tII ?
Thanks

I just received (Shipped from AliExpres - China) a (supposed) matched set of EL34. I am testing them now (to determine how I built the 2 "matched" pairs) and will do 2 days of burning before I compare them to the Stock Mullard that were shipped with my BHSE.

I will therefore report first listening impression in few days... (along with the listening result of my new CuriousCable USB cable)

After 1h30 of warm-up, I have the following results for my 4 EL34 tubes. Is it good or not ? how should I match them to built the 2 pairs ?
