Stax SR-009 Channel Imbalance Trouble / Driver Problem? - Page 21

post #301 of 654
Do you have any other headphones to test with that amp? I've had a 717 that acted like that in the past, an imbalance when starting. Shortly after the other channel would come up and all is good. Obviously it acted the same with any headphones, not only the 009.

The SRM-717. The way it happened with you seems like the pattern with others. I know they charge so much to fix outside of warranty and I still have over 6 months left. Don't want to take any chances but if I do send it back and due to the intermittent nature of the problem they make not test extensively and send them back. It's only been a couple of days so will keep a very close eye.

Unfortunately not. I just turned them on they were fine. I tried to re-create the problem and took the plug out. I discharged the pins and the imbalance came back. Let it play for 5 minutes and the problem has gone away again.

I'm about 45 minutes west of Toronto if that helps. I have a SRM-1 you could test with.

 

If your in the Toronto area, maybe someone else could help you out by letting you plug your phones into their amp.

Thank you so much for that. I will see how it goes for a few days and try to find someone local in the first instance but will get back to you if I have no luck.

This issue seems different to what others have experienced. Can someone shed more light based on what I have experienced?

Based on the symptoms, it seems like an amp issue as alluded to earlier. If you can try them on another amp altogether first, it would really help.

This issue seems to have gone away now.

So it wasn't the amp, but the phones. It'd be nice if you could note the potential imbalance in your listing.

I tired the headphones so many times since and took them to another head-fier (stapsy) and we could not hear any imbalance issues at all. When it did happen, it was for only a handful of times and for a few minutes each time.

 

Someone I spoke to said you need to keep it running for a few minutes to let it charge and after it went away I tried countless times (and sought a second opinion) to see if it happens again and it didn't.

Agreed, doesn't seem fair to write this stuff when you likely sent the email at the start of the week end in Japan.
If they haven't responded after a week's time, it's another story and you should share here to avert people.

Except that there is a thing called time lag which would have made it Friday, possibly evening time in japan.

probably a good idea if you want anyone to pay attention to your problem.  People are really trying to put some thought into helping you.
