Hmm, strange.  I can find is here. but it's in Japanese.  Let me search more for you if I can find one in English.

The model is actually CSW-100WB.

I'll try this.  Not sure if it then looks ugly because there's a gap in between?  Just asking to consider aesthetic vs comfort.

I don't know why it's so difficult to buy separately. 

It is very easy and it's default option when we buy amp from PriceJapan, and the price is not that much, it's around 8,000 JPY.

post #605 of 2459

That's over eighty dollars. That's a lot of money for what it does.

But it's cute,small and very nice built  :D

All T1 type amps have a switch on the inside to coverts the input voltage.  Just remove the bottom plate.

I would just leave the pads in place and pad the underside of the actual earpad, inside the ear chamber.

Hmm, sounds good that I don't have to peel the original pad, but I read your instruction above more than 10 times, but I still can't figure out how it would look like spritzer, so sorry :(  if you have a simple picture, that would be great.  Thanks.

Yes, you need a step down converter.

Unless it's been modified, it clearly says AC100V only, and the US uses ~115V AC.

post #611 of 2459

spritzer said that the voltage switch is under the bottom plate.  you cant tell from the back.

post #612 of 2459

Spritzer knows more about Stax than just about anyone around here, I'd follow his lead and investigate further.

Though, that leaves the question as to why there are T1 amps floating around (such as Ken Rockwell's model) that have the voltage converters on the back plate as well...

post #613 of 2459
My guess...it might be one of the original models,seller told me it is 20 years old

I feel spritzer is right...he is the expert in all things..Stax

Will wait till I get delivery,then open up the bottom ,see what,s what

Tnx guys ,for your help

The first T1's had two voltage selectors on the back as there were two transformers.  This was later changed with the circuit so it is hidden underneath the bottom plate.  Underneath the 100V only sticker is a marking for all the voltages.

Lift up the inside of the earpads, there is an opening there.
