    Stax Sr-X Mark III Impressions

    Glad to hear your back, timb5881. my question to all those who pulled their old cans out of storage is why you packed them us in the first place. Just curious.

    How was it buying from Yahoo Japan? I've been interested in a few items; but I'm not sure I trust the site.

    Vintage Stax repair and maintenance

    I have a similar problem with my SR-X Mk III/SRD-7; but on a much smaller scale. I am not sure if it's the earspeakers or the Driver; but I think it would be corrected with a driver that has separate volume control on each channel. I've been looking at a SRM-313. Does anyone know how it compares...

    Don't blame America. I believe it was a Chinese corp.

    How did you get from the Magnepan Unitrac to the Wand, anyway? What country are you in?

    Sometimes, yes. The cheapest I can find a used SME 309 for is $2,000. There is an Alexandria MK IV that needs some repair for sale. It has a mint 309 on it. The guy wants $1,160. The problem is he is in Denmark and wants all the money up front. I'm very tempted; but the risk is too high.

    I wouldn't think a Pro-Ject would be an upgrade over the MMT. The SME V or 345 are too dear at this time and probably overkill for an Alexandria. The Wand+ may be a great option.

    I do, too. I have a DL-301 mk II that I love. It looks a lot different than the original 301. So how do you like the Wand+. I'm looking at tonearm upgrades. Does anyone have any suggestions for an Oracle Alexandria MK III?

    So which cartridge is that? Looks like a DL-110 that was scared white. Did you ever try the Talisman? Just wondering what your opinion was?

    I would think both those changes would be downgrades, if the Talisman S diamond has some life left in it. Many think they are well worth retipping. Do you have a LOMC phono stage?

    Vintage Stax repair and maintenance

    I got a SR-44 set up around 1975. It eventually developed an intermittent signal loss in the L earspeaker and fell into disuse. So sad! In 2014 I bought a used SR-4. Happy again. Also, that was my introduction to eBay. Eventually I found a SR-34. I actually think I like the SR-44 better. Four...

    Back-Electret/STAX

    It turns out the R/L imbalance of all my STAX headphones has been cured. The problem was with the components between the earspeakers - my left ear. For some reason it's a lot better now. Anyway. I am thinking of selling either the SR-34 or SR-44. Which would you keep?

    You can try HiFi headphones CA (canada) https://www.hifiheadphones.ca/stax-cpc-1-clear-protective-cover/#desc Or go to the Stax site and look up the Canadian Distributors. I got my ear pads from American Sound http://www.americansound.com/

    I have a pair of SR X series replacement pads coming from a non-USA distributor, since I never received any reply from any of the alleged ones in my homeland. I don't think they'll fart; but I won't mind if they sound better (musically, that is) than the threadbare fossils I've been using.
