If I wasn't saving for my source components I'd pick these up.  Maybe someone here is interested?  Price seems okay, no?

Hello all,
I just picked up a Stax Lambda Basic kit from Japan. All I need for use here in the U.S. is a step down transformer and I'm good to go right?  the provided wall wart can just be plugged right in to that?
 
Thanks.

Amplifiers shootout for stax 009, without visibility (in blind), the most dangerous of all for amplifiers !

If not for the "local only" bit of your listing, I'm confident you would have sold it a LONG time ago.
 
I was actually kicking myself for buying an SRM-T1 at just under $404 when seeing that listing of yours, until realizing that as a NYC-only local sale, I would have never had a chance at buying it to begin with.

Seconding what NamelessPFG just said. If you were to reconnect the volume pot, I bet you could get ~$450 shipped based on historical Ebay pricing. With a fresh set of tubes, $500+. Good condition SRM1/MK2s are already close to $400.
 
I should offer to pick up it up and ship it to someone at cost if they are willing to let me demo the thing for a week...
 
  I aim to please...

In a nutshell, +2.

I might actually keep it and restore the volume circuitry if it doesn't go. Just haven't had the time to get to it or the space to keep it lying around...

  Was your study double blinded and randomized? If not, then there is the researcher bias.

 
Good idea!
 
What double-blind randomized protocol you propose to compare, in practice, on four amplifiers with Stax SR 009, on five different music tracks, with two testers and six different audio criteria , in less than 4 hours?
