RMAF was visited by a large number of NON-head-fi peeps, and some were more careless than others.

At CanJam everybody I saw was extremely careful with everybody else's gear. I certainly used them with the outmost care. It is certainly commendable to have to transport all that delicate gear, set it up and put it in harms way, since accidents can definitely happen.
Again sorry about your Jades.

Sorry. Is not funny. I just don't understand how it could have happened!
Some people don't treat the equipment as if it were their own, and some people do, sad to say, they don't take care of their own equipment. I've seen a member take off an Orpheus with one hand like Stephen Colbert takes off his glasses (except his are Flexicons). I explained to them that they cost $7000 dollars and his response was "They're only headphones".
Stepping on the cables with Doc Martens are the worst. My own wife has been found guilty of the crime by a jury if her peers (me). Total oblivion.

I should keep her T-Fal on the burner, turned on high with nothing in the pan. That would show her.

Man, I hate it when stainless steel turns all brown and spotted from that. She'll learn you in return.

IMHO the positives outweigh the negatives at this moment for me to send them back.

The problems are almost nonexistent at this moment.

No she won't. That's what oblivious is. It's just not a part of her thinking process. I love her to death, but I have to have all of my setups wife-proofed, just as if I had a dog or 2 year-old in the house.
Cable management is all part of the bigger process. Meanwhile, If I open one of her cabinets looking for an ice cream scooper, I have to anticipate the possibility of a broken toe, in the process.

What I have always feared since receiving the frail HE Audio Stax adapter has come true. The Stax adapter developed positional intermittency, and after some trouble-shooting, I have found a loose solder joint to one of the male pins.

The problem is, due to the strong glue used to glue together this shell, it cannot be opened, and the back-side is too small to access the pin's solder joint. The glue is super-hard, and trying to knife it open has only led to almost-amputated fingers and blood.





Anybody have a good idea on how to access this solder joint short of destroying the whole shell? I'd hate to incur shipping costs to ship this thing across the country to get a replacement, not to mention completely halting listening sessions for various evaluations going on at the current time

It looks like it's epoxy. Bad news.
If the contacts are inside the epoxy and they still came loose, there's something wrong.
Contact Fang. See if there's something he can do (he might warranty it?).

I see the adapter as something to use when I listen to someone else's amp and not something for everyday use.
I've got an XLR on my amp.
Adding an XLR is pretty easy (you just wire it in series with the Stax connector). It's a much better connector than the Stax connectors I've seen.

If they won't replace the adapter then just get a WPI male plug to replace it. Drill out the center pin and you are set.

Fang got back to me and said he will send one out today, so it's cool

unless HE is going to make a companion amp, they should just terminate with the stax plug.
post #2592 of 2670
Even if the do make their own amp, they still should just use the stax plug. standards are good

At least HE Audio's XLR plugs are More "standard" than the Sennheiser HE90 or HE60 plugs, or even the Koss 950 plugs. Non-standardization should be a crime, esp for 'stats and those darn external I2S connectors IMHO

Glad to hear things worked out for you Jon!

Fang really knows how to run a business (he should teach a class!). I figured he'd take good care of you.

but the HE60/90 have companion amps.
