Have they made some kind of change to the amp or phones to prevent this from happening now, or is that still a potential problem.

I am not aware of any change made to their circuits, but you can play the SRS-2170 system pretty loud!

Yup. As a matter of fact, IMO the gain on the 252S amp is actually a bit too high as matched up with a standard outputting fullsize DAC, I can only really play it around 9 and 11 o'clock mark in volume... any higher and it's WAY too loud...  wish I had a bit more of a play on it.

Yeah same. The gain is a bit too high for me. I have to lower the digital volume so that I can play music at a comfortable level while avoiding the channel imbalance.

How does one change the voltage on an SRM-1/MK2?

post #440 of 1372
What voltage we aiming for here? Also does yours have a multi-voltage cover?
post #441 of 1372

Nevermind, I figured it out anyways. It does have a multi-voltage cover. Is there anything I should be aware of that might not be immediately evident?

post #442 of 1372
Nope just make sure you know what you're doing for the voltage you're after. Since you're tinkering around measure/adjust dc/balance offset.

Greetings! I'm new to the forums, so forgive me if this is the wrong thread to ask in.
I've just purchased a STAX SRD-7 adapter and SR-5 earspeakers, which require the power of a stereo amp.
I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for a small affordable amp sufficient enough to power these? Would the Audioengine N22 work well?
Also is there anyway my Woo Audio WA7 could work? ( I doubt it though)
Thank you.

I would honestly use a good integrated amplifier to drive the SR-5's rather than off conventional headphone amps. I can tell you they will sound good off a decent integrated amp. Have mine as Marantz PM-32 > SRD-7mk2 > SR-5. Wonderful voicing and separation and mids.

Do the new SR-207 pads with the cloth grill fit on the SR-202?

post #446 of 1372

All Lambda pads fit on every Lambda.

All new pads come with the clothe grill insert. The foam stitched pads are old NOS and style.

Wow, mechgamer123 and I just had a meetup today. The SR-207 is definitely heavier compared to the SR-202. It's like a LCD-2 vs HD800 (not really, but there's a pretty noticeable difference in weight).

Too bad we didn't actually have time to compare them though :(

Eventually we'll do that ;)

^ Please do a system comparison as well as a headphone comparison guys.
