    Creating a Stax Lambda system?

    Hello all,   At the recent Head-Fi meetup in CT for the NYC area I tested ESL-1's Stax system -- he brought a pair of Sigmas and Lambdas that sounded INCREDIBLE. I became enamored by the electrostatic system. I want to set up a Stax system myself for, preferably, under $600 or so. I've heard...

    How to remove dust from stax lambda?

    I picked up a set of stax lambdas and and srm1-mk2 inexpensively.  Since my last thread, I have had the amp restored (re-soldered and modified for pro bias).  My sr-30 sound clean.  My lambdas still have significant buzzing in the left channel at both frequency extremes.  There is also a...

    The Stax Lambda Thread

    As someone in the middle of a stax transition, Ive spent many hours on the black hole that is "The Stax Thread". Hopefully we can break it down into some sub-categories so future head-fi(ers) dont develop carpal tunnel in their search for electrostatics. How about limiting this one to the...

    Entering electrostats - where's the sweet spot for a nice setup?

    I'm not in any hurry, as I haven't collected the cash yet. But I think that I somewhere along the road will get into electrostats. I have only listened to HE-60 and a Stax model which name I forgot. These HE-60 are pretty high end, and they sounded incredibly good. What I recall is impressive...

    Which kit would be the best option for Stax Lambda?

    Hi   I want to buy Stax SRS-X170 but I have limited budget and I was wondering which source should I choose. I am thinking about two options: 1) Audiotrak Prodigy Cube which I own so I will be able to afford SRS-4170 2) Buy better DAC/CD player and buy SRS-3170 instead 3) SR-307 combined...

    Stax Lambda parts, with one functioning driver

    I gave up finding another Lambda normal bias driver, so I am selling my pair for parts. I can sell them altogether or separately.   Everything I sell is in the pictures, which includes:   (1) the right driver, and its cup/open frame. The driver is perfectly functional with no distortion...

    Stax SR-Lambda (normal bias) one side has no bass

    I have a pair of 6-pin Stax SR-Lambda that's driven by an amp + SRD-6. The left side, however, has minimum bass. There is little channel imbalance or any observable distortion on the left side, just a lack of bass. I have switched speaker cables, reversed channels in my computer, even resoldered...

    What speakers sound like STAX LAMBDAS?

    Any suggestions? Do the QUAD ESL speakers come close to the LAMBDA sound?

    How many hours straight can you wear a "comfortable" set of headphones?

    I have been on a quest to upgrade my sound quality at work. I invested in a pair of Yuin PK1 earbuds and a Fiio E11. I wear headphones of some kind nearly 8 hours each day, taking them off for brief periods. I thought that the PK1s, since they were earbuds, wouldn't be noticeable. But they hurt...

    Stax lambda NB - Left side seems weaker - Help

    I've had my stax setup for a while, and I've always felt that the left side was slightly weaker.  I blamed it on my amp for the longest time, but It may not be the problem.  I would like to find the problem once and for all.  First, I would like to rule out or confirm that its the stax setup...

    Size of Stax Lambda Pro vs. newer models

    I am the new owner of a Stax SRM-T1 and Lambda Pro earspeakers.  The sound of this 20 year-old system is quite exemplary.  I have only one issue: the headphones are extremely large, especially from the front.  I normally wouldn't care, but I work on a trading floor and these things produce...

    Stax Lambda Pro

    A pair of Lambda Pros in very good condition. No nicks or gouges. Foam is intact. Cable is in excellent shape. These things are completely amazing, moreso for their age. I just bought them and a SRM-T1 amp; this setup betters any dynamic headphones + amp I've heard at any price IMO. I have...

    FS/FT Stax Lambda normal bias and SRD-7SB

    sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooold   Unsure of the exact model. They are normal bias lambdas with .25 mylar drivers which replaced the original drivers. They had stuffing in them so I removed that. Too hot. Sound is more taunt than the Lambda Normals. Midrange is more pronounced maybe. Bass is...
