I am very interested. It was really fun participating in the he560 program. I would love to directly compare these cans to my he6.
Yes, all very good suggestions. I've worked on a few sansui's and the glue is just a pain to remove. And yes, it is very corrosive. I've seen it eat through resistor leads, capacitors and even the pcb itself. Always a good idea to remove that. I'm sure if it was recapped, this probably was done. I would also make sure out of spec resistors and any germanium trannies were replaced. I just recently worked on an au2000 were one 4.7ohm resistor on the driver board was badly...
All I can say is WOW. What a find, and definitely worth the drive. Big congrats on scoring those.
Skylab pics of that rig will never get old. Still stunning!! Frahengeo welcome to the thread, and wow.... a collection! All mint as well. Nice!!!
Phoenix I chose to believe you.
Pm me if you have an adapter for normal bias stax.
Is this still the "Hifiman HE100 Planar Dynamic Flagship" thread. I can understand getting off topic a bit from time to time since these aren't even close to being released yet. But this is now ridiculous. This has somehow turned into the hd800 fanboy thread for some reason. Isn't there already numerous threads for that? I can understand making comparisons between the hd800 or any other flagship with the he1000. Infact that's very welcomed for me, but this has strayed far...
Up for sale is a complete stax setup consisting of a pair of lambda normal, srd-7sb, and 15ft extension cable. They all are in excelent condition. The headband strap is in excellent condition and is not knotted up and worn through like a lot of them you see. The ear pads don't have any cracks and are still soft. The srd-7 energizer is equally in excellent condition cosmetically. And most importantly, there is no channel imbalance in the earspeakers themselves. The price...
Well the point of the 1250 reference was, he didnt address the transistors at all when trying to track down the source of the hum. Transistors whether germanium or not do fail when it comes to gear this old. When it comes to germanium however, its always a given.
Many vintage amps/receivers have germanium transistors. Some have a few and others uses all germanium transistors(other than the power ones). It's absolutely critical to replace those....always. Germaniums are very unreliable, and very noisy. Those are always the first step for me. The shelf life on those isn't even as long as the shelf life of capacitors. Most repairs tend to be transistor related. But the  problem with some, is finding suitable replacements. That's why...
