EDIT: Would this (http://www.head-fi.org/t/223263/the-stax-thread-new/23610#post_9623345) be the procedure you're referring to?

 

Well, I cracked the plastic case open and look what greeted me:

 

 

Guess I lucked out and am spared a delicate soldering job! Am I correct in assuming that all is fine with the leads into the transformer windings and all I have to do at this point is rewire the voltage selector socket as detailed in spritzer's post mentioned previously?

I just bought a pair of Stax DA100M amps from Japan fairly blind. Looks to me like some of the Rca jacks were replaced at some point. Hoping they will be in good working modern condition. I can't make total sense of the Japanese translation but it sounded to me like I bought a pair in good working condition from probably a reseller with 1 slightly bent speaker jack. I bought off Buyee. Would somebody that understands Japanese well mind taking a look at the Buyee link and or the Yahoo link and briefly help me understand how it was described and if the seller seems like he would really know if they work properly? I am just really curious not that it make a difference now. I am thinking they will be amps for Apogee ribbon speakers one day.

That's pretty much completely incorrect.  The letters mean absolutely nothing and the serial numbers even less.  The parts used just represent the time when the units were built and how long the lifetime of the design was.

I love the SR-407 with SR-507 pads quite a bit more than I thought I would. Is the SR-507 itself any different or better?

post #2184 of 4001

Supposed to be the same drivers but different housing and cable and pads.  The drivers in 507 are also press fit rather than adhesive fit.

Did you like the LNS better?

post #2187 of 4001

So far yes and by a good margin.  The problem is this pair of LNS are quite old and in pretty rough shape.  Very enjoyable listen.  They appear almost identical to the 407 but have rotting foam, different drivers, and fatter pads.

Aren't the serial numbers picked at random?

post #2190 of 4001
Why would you think the serials numbers are random? Maybe the serial sticker is not applied exactly sequentially with the the exact order in which a headphone is made, but I doubt they are using some random number generator to pick the serial numbers.
