First, can I just plug them in w/o biasing them just to hear how they sound and if I like them,

later ship the amp and tubes to Stax/Yamasinc for biasing?

 

(And if I don't like the sound of the new tubes, just reinstalling the original stock tubes and be back where I started.)

 

Will this work?

Thanks.

(I have SR009 phones).

 

Get a multimeter and do a search - it's quite easy to bias the amp

The normal bias lambdas are fantastic headphones! (...except I dont think I've used mine for years, just like some of my other head-fi gear)

 

This looks like a pair of Lambda nb on sale on ebay. They also do international shipping if you are not in CONUS

Since you mentioned it this set has the original box

 

 

 

Now are you the person that bid on that set? If so, ummmmm.... looks like someone did a bodgy diy job. I've circled the weirdness. Like wtf???

Yep bidding on those too. Contacted the seller if he would part just the earspeakers he said he'll let the auction run as is for now and see where it'll go. I also asked him about the cable connection as it seems the previous owner changed the cable to 6 pin DIN type connector. I might have to order a new cable as I only have spare pro bias cables. Seller said he didn't touch it but bought it like that from the previous seller.

well at least you know what you're getting yourself into

I would stay away from that pair. No damping means it won't sound too good and the repair job is quite crappy as well.

Yeah I'm still thinking about it. I've got myself too far into collecting these headphones now and I said to myself that I'll stop. It's not helping, even with me being broke as hell now. I've got myself down too deep in the rabbit hole.

I've got spare Stax damping material.

Yep... was hilarious when I first saw it on eBay 

post #22288 of 24765

jjinh do you have original boxes for your Lambda collection?

post #22289 of 24765

Interesting question.

 

I have at least 3, maybe 5 lambda boxes. I'd have to check as I dont store my headphones in their original boxes. I also have the the SR-007, SR-003 boxes. I suspect people just throw boxes away but I have rooms full of old packaging...

Somehow I have a strong suspicion it would still not sound as good as a pair that wasn't abused in any way.

Mine looked like it came from the scrapyard as the headpad is barely holding and the earpad isn't in the best shape either but the housing is in very good shape so it does sound very good. It held smoke smell as well but it is gone now.

I might pick up another pair eventually, maybe I should bid on the other one as well? =)
