I have a good condition 1 year old pair of SR-007s, but I need to replace the cable.
My Collie dog decided to leap on me and it has snagged the cable at it's entry point into the cable clamp.
So, I have dismantled the units down to the speaker panels out, cut the old wires and have a genuine Stax
cable coming from Mark at Highend Workshop UK.
So, has anyone done this. I am a bit nervous about heat transfer from the soldering gun. I have
a tiny head type for it and silver mix solder. There are 3 joints per side. The fit of the wires under the clamp cover is quite tight as well. I think this is the Port area some have blocked up with Blu-Tac right?
I am thinking it would be best to position and solder the wires with the panels out, then carefully place
them back in after. I am being mega careful with dust and don't want to poke the screwdriver through the panels!
I LOVE these phones. I would be really upset if I wrecked them! I have found I am listening more to the Stax than my SET amps and Horn speakers, even though my speakers are near field, the Stax are incredible for stage depth and detail plus real bass. My front end is all tubes and None oversampling Audio Note DAC. It is very smooth, no fatigue. Only trouble I find is the Spanish temperature builds in the house June - August and I get too hot with them on!
Anyway, I digress. Happy listening you Stax guys.
