I see you keep the K1000s near the range and sink for that warm, liquid sound.

true, but the kid loves noodles.

Yeah I think as far as components go I'll sit pat for awhile after i get my preamp hopefully - then it's tweaking and modding time, just like last year! if cash allows! and SO allows!

I just thought of something - how hard would it be to make the SRM-1 a tube hybrid? Still a Solid state, but add a tube preamp gain stage. Coolness.

Speking of cool, the Quietcool3 just came, it's a laptop fan. right now it's pumping away all the heat from my SRM-1, it's amazing - it's been on for hours but the unit is COOL! not even warm, and definitely not hot like before - and it's using usb to power up and i can't hear the dual fans at all. This was a great deal! And I didn't even need to raise my monitor stand to slip the fan in there - there's like no clearance now, but the Stax has never been cooler!

That's great, Jahn. Thanks for buying the materials, doing the experiment and reporting back. Nice to know the SRM-1 can be kept cool with a little ingenuity.

No problem! It's been on like this for about 3 hours now nonstop and I'm blasting the tunes - and the amp is nice and frigid. I'm going to leave it on overnight and see what happens too. Who knew air circulation could help so much eh?

Yep, I'll have to try it on mine.

By the way... [looks furtive]

Did you know... [looks further furtive]

[flips out]The circa '87 Lambda Signature, otherwise just like your Lambda Pro, has the thinnest freaking diaphragm fitted to any freaking Stax headphone freaking ever??![/flips out]

Just thought I'd calmly mention that in case, you know, you ever wanted to, uh, upgrade. Or something.

Hehe yep I read that! And the Enjoy the Music folks still use their Stax Signature as their main can, crazy! I saw that Signature/006t combo on ebay - oh, if I only had more than 900 bucks on me!

Thinnest diaphragm meaning how thin exactly? The thinnest that I'm aware of is the 1.0 microns on the HE90.

It's 1 micron as well, although material is probably more important.

I have both sr-404 and lambda signature and indeed the latter does appear to be present instrument timbre more accurately with acoustic music and are faster overall. On the downside, they lack bass extension and are less full in the midbass and have a treble peak that can not be easily tolerated without some form of equalization on many recordings.
