This is the official thread for the Stax SRM-353X
This thread is for discussion and reviews.
- XLR & RCA in, RCA out
Picked one up from headlamp today and very excited to get it in the mail.
So hooked this um to my L500 MK2 and I think it is keeps and bounds above the D10 for power.
Is that the famous store where you have to wear sunglasses inside all the time…? :o
How do you like it? Have you had a SRM-252s? That’s all I’ve heard so far, with a meager L300.
I really enjoy it with my L500s. I was running a SRM D10 before and I just didn’t provide the grunt I was looking for.
Are you planning to try a Nectar Hive? Or SR-007 next?
I’m pretty set for my setup right now but it’s not out of the realm in the future. Little stax porn for ya
L700 leather pads?
No it’s how the mrk2s come. I’m pretty sure it’s why the D10 didn’t seem to have enough ooomph.
D10 is am amp, right? I mean the headphone pads. I upgraded my L300 pads to the nice L700 leather ones. Highly recommend!
Yep D10 is the portable amp and I thought the L500s had very close earpads to the L700s bit I could be mistaken.
500 pads are synthetic like 300, but more padding, p sure. 700 = leather
Ok gotcha, they fooled me lol. I might have to try the 700 pads.
And they are on their way lol. They look really comfortable.
Noooow you’re cookin’ : D
And the L700 earpads are fantastic. Comfy as hell and I do believe the low-end has elevated a bit as well. Thanks for the recommendation!!!
When I had my L300, I loved using the Bass Boost in Windows, +6dB @ 75Hz. Such thump
I don’t think I need the bass boost at all but I can see how clean and thumpy it can be.
Hell Ya , nice to see a fellow owner of the Limited Black 353X so sexy, got a good deal on all brand new 2 sets of L300Limiteds, ( 1 pair never opened in box in case the craptastic plastic breaks on the L300L ). Supposedly they only made 300 gold emblem 353Xs in Black.
That’s awesome info, I picked this up as a demo unit so I got a decent deal as well. I can’t imagine owning multiple stax lol.
