The Stax SRM-002 mod thread? - Page 2

I suppose the hum issue doesn't exist when using the Stax wallwart?

Out of stock at staxusa.

you mean it is not a part of the system and you have to buy it separately?

 

Might as well just mod a battery pack to 5000mAH with power pigtail and call it good. The power pack can also work as desktop power supply ( run the amp while being charged via USB).

No, it isn't.

Probably easy to just make one (using R-core transformer; wind your own secondary winding and get whatever voltage you want).

A-cats - thanks for posting about the USB battery pack mod; very cool and I plan to do this one. Even as is, the pack was a great buy; was able to charge my cell phone overnight while off the grid; was at 100% next morning. Certainly smaller than the wallwart I'm transporting, and USB charge while in use makes it a win-win. 
 
From where did you order the protection circuit? Got a part number by chance? Oh, I did pop the top off my USB pack and it has a larger battery and no lead strip to add fake weight. Must be a few version floating around the web.
 
I do still plan to get around to the 002 mods you've described; at least the input and output cap portion. I actually took the 252A amp to the office so I could leave the 002 disassembled on the bench. Given my work schedule, that's as far as I've gotten.

has anybody done any mods to their 002 yet?

I noticed that stax will bring out 2 improved amps: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/ces-2014-stax-move

very interesting, those amps look like some super-sized SRM-001..... probably have all kinds of space inside for modding?

post #26 of 27

I'm not sure there will be much more space.  I'm guessing a lot of space is dedicated to the new rechargeable batteries and of course the DAC components in the unit with a converter.  

 

I'm looking forward to checking them out, and like the idea of some 002's set up for custom tips!

I wonder why they didn't use the more common 5 pin socket in the super-sized mini amps. Kind of a "portable" option for the existing 003's.
