I made a thread and it was recommended I post here for help. original thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/643406/how-to-remove-dust-from-stax-lambda#post_9005886
I got a pair of lambda pros cheap with an srm-1/mk2. I had the amp cleaned and modded for pro output. After reading and a much earlier post, I had come to the conclusion that there was dust in the left driver. Any possible solutions? There is a lot of rattle with really high and low frequencies--enough for me not to use them. At this the left driver is scrap to me so I'm willing to give a reasonable idea a go.
After coming back from vacation, the connection issues with the left channel cable have intensified. At first, the sound would cut in and out if I moved my head to quickly. It was easily avoided so I dealt with it. Now, I have to hold the wire in a specific position to get any sound to pass through. It is also at a significantly decreased volume. I have figured out that the connection issue is occurring at the plastic/rubber "joint" where the wires meets the left enclosure. Can I simply clip the wires before the joint and re-solder them to the driver? I know the left and right wires will be uneven but I can't imagine it would make a huge sonic difference. I could knot them inside the enclosure to relieve the tension.
Could the connection issues be the cause of the static I had attributed to dust?
Am I SOL? and what could I reasonably get out of them as parts to go towards a pair of 407/507?
On the bright side, the sr-30s I had thrown in for free are serving me well in the meantime
