So, Kevin, how cold does it get?
Is it for cryogenically treated cables? biggrin.gif

It's for cryogenically treating all those dogs out there who sell fake HV transistors needed to build quality Stax electrostatic amplifiers.

 

Corrected typo.....

I have a pair of Nova Basic headphones and SRM-T1 energiser.

The headphones are showing their age and need new pads and cord assembly.

I'm thinking of buying a new pair.

 

I previously owned a pair of Lambda Signatures (1 micron diaphragm) which I found too tiring - Treble Etch?

I don't want to make the same mistake, so how do the following compare in terms of Treble Etch?

 

Nova Basic

SR-207

SR-307

SR-407

SR-507

 

Thanks for your help.

Wink is having his coffee hit at this time. Expect random and unusually funny posts from him.

You could just buy a spare cable and new pads for your Nova's and save a lot of cash from buying a new modern Lambda. That said, I don't think I've ever come across used Nova Basic's anywhere on ebay nor here.

buy a nova signature,second choice would be 407

if you can tame the highs, lambda signature (1.5um later version) is better

How the heck do you find out what um thickness version your Signature has? 

post #22330 of 24765
later version use PVC dust cover, 
(serial #27xxx and later(or maybe #26xxx, not sure))
 
later version have thicker bass, less high peaks, larger soundstage
they sound so good if you have a good amp, they are one class above LNS,407,507
 
the 1.5um was mentioned in a Japanese web site

Also - years ago I sent for a Signature leaflet. The 1 micron diaphragm was a "big new feature".

post #22332 of 24765

There was never a 1.5um Signature unless somebody crammed Lambda Pro drivers in those frames.  Not something Stax ever did.

Plenty of other good choices out there too. 

The SRM-007t uses different resistors, the excellent 7W Dale's. 

Thanks for your suggestions. I'll keep them in mind for any future mods/repairs.

Fixed the typo in my previous post. May make more sense now, but I doubt it.

 

Have had 4 cups of glorious coffee since then.
