    Stax Lambda Sig Repair?

    The plastic you see is the front is the dust cover, as long as it isnt perforated or torn, you should be good. The diaphragm is between the two hard stators, out of sight.

    Orthodynamic Roundup

    Hey Don, just curious how you ended up damping the various 'pants you have played with? Prefer not to open these too often if it can be avoided, due to concerns about the wood threading getting damaged. Good stuff, just need to tame the midbass a bit more on mine without killing the low bass off...

    Did I screw up the Millet MiniMax?

    Fix it if you have the tools to do so without further damaging the board, leave it out if you don't.

    Did I screw up the Millet MiniMax?

    Repairable, but ouch. Looks like the pads are still somewhat intact, so if you carefully clean the solder out of the real holes with either braid or a pump, you can probably get it to work. Measure your connections after soldering the new parts in though. Also, that cap isnt strictly necessary...

    NY Area Fall Meet, Nov 14, 2009, Harrison NY - It's Official!

    Definitely in for dinner. Also, like Nate, I too have a new dynamic amp, with some of those fancy "tube" things in it.

    Post pics of your builds....

    Got a bit of work to do still since there is a bit of visible oscillation, probably more aggressive grid stoppers, but it is functioning and sounding quite good. Currently set up to use E810F/7788, though it can and will be modified to run some D3A, just to try it out. Custom 7200:32ohm 2w...

    That time should be good for me. Probably bring SR007 and some stuff to drive them.

    MB Quart QP 805 HS

    Listening to my QP805 HS right now, but I am using a set of Stax SR007 pads on them, which significantly improves comfort and sound, especially in the bass. Very nice, especially for what they were going for.

    Orthodynamic Roundup

    Sound is about as one would expect, fairly rolled off on both ends. The pads really, really dont help anything. I do think that with some good, new pads and maybe a recable to run off my Stax amp, it should improve nicely. Just dunno if I want to go that route.

    I can now confirm that the Kenwood KH-82 are NOT orthos, but instead electret with built in SUT's.

    Orthodynamic Roundup

    Well, there were two versions of the Audeze ortho at CanJam, and they sounded a bit different. One had a hand tensioned diaphragm, and the other was done a bit more precisely on a jig, with a bit greater tension too. I did feel they were lightning fast, maybe just a touch harsh (though not like...

    Orthodynamic Roundup

    Probably thinking that their ortho completely destroys the T50rp in every way, which, for me, it does. Come on now, you can get a koss ksc75 for $10, so what is Sennheiser doing charging $1400 for their new HD800? They are both dynamic headphones. Sure, the Koss sounds OK, and has a cheap...
