Stax SR-007 Mk1 HELP urgently needed!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

HELP!  Thanks to my pet cat (Kayo), a sudden  jump off the couch, a snagged SR-007 Mk1 headphone cable on his way off the couch, a headphone on the floor ….. So now I get intermittent and highly annoying one or both channels cutting in and out so as to make use basically unlistenable.  I contacted a few Stax mafia members and here is their diagnosis:

The issue you just described sounds like the cable has been stressed at the junction near the cable and driver entry. This is normally caused by cable stress such as accidentally snagging the cable around the desk or chair which damages the cable. The Stax crowd here knows this phenomenon very well. I do not recommend opening the headset yourself unless you intend to complete a DIY job.

Sooooo .. I’ve only had the SR-007 for a few weeks and I’m desperately asking if there is anyone out there that can handle a DIY job as described.  I most certainly pay for all shipping charges and will even pay a fair fee for your services.  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

Oh,  and Kayo the cat is still with us evil_smiley.gif

Having cringed myself at Stax mixing up with members of Animalia, I relate. So sorry to hear. But look at the bright side; this just might be a divine sign to get either the 009 or hunt down a Mk1.

I would consider sending them to Stax UK to know they are repaired properly. I emailed them about repairing my Mk1's and was quoted 80 pounds for the cable and 35 an hr for labor.
