    Stax SR Sigma Question

    I just made a deal for a pristine set of Stax Sigma phones. The seller claims they are in perfect working order. I should have them by end of next week.

    Stax Sigma high frequency response

    I have a set of Sigmas from the early 80s (I'm the original owner) with the SRD-7 adaptor box. Compared to my AKG 701 or Beyerdynamics 880s the output is very low and the high frequencies are really rolled off. Can any Sigma owners tell me: Is that just the way these headphones are? Is...

    Can anyone tell me where I could get a Stax Sigma Pro five pin headphone repaired. The right channel is down?

    or can anyone show me how to repair it myself and where to get the parts.  I should also say that I have an old but working pair of Stax Lambda Pros five pin headphones.  Could I use the Lambdas pros to repair the Sigma Pros?  I e mailed Yama in California to see if he would repair them but he...

    Stax Sigma - how many owners are left out there?

    Hi to all those Sigma owners out there. I have been in possession of Padam's Sigma Pros for less than a day :) As you may be able to tell I'm unashamed of how strange I look with them on. It has certainly added some bulk to my rather thin head. I'd like to share all opinions on how to make the...

    Headphones with unusually large drivers

    Hello everyone   I've been finding headphones that have unsually large drivers and I noticed that there isn't a thread for them. (Correct me if I'm wrong) So I thought it would be a good idea to make one.   I'll begin by throwing in the Lafayette Model F-990 with 3.5 Inch (88.9mm)...

    Thoughts on Upgrading Stax Sigma Normal Bias to Pro - SR-303 drivers or SR-404?

    I'm in the beginning process of converting my Normal bias Sigmas to Pro, and am looking for thoughts on what to expect between either the 303 and 404 drivers in the Sigma frames. There are a few threads about the 404 versus the Normal bias Sigmas, but not much that I could find on using the...

    Nuforce LPS-1...difference is not subtle.

    Just received my new LPS-1 power supply unit in the mail, hooked it up to my Nuforce Icon-2 and have been amazed with the difference in sound quality!  In sheer scale of the the sound, it is like night and day.  Where it used to sound somewhat small, thin and veiled, the sound is now much...
