    Stax 404/407 suitable glue for fixing the dust covers and units

    I've bit the bullet and bought a 404/006 Stax set but as expected, the glue of the earpads turned into a sticky goo and the ESL units came loose inside the case. This is actually the second time I see this happening, the previous set were the Lambda Nova Basics a few years ago. Back then I...

    Electrostatic Amp BOMs

    I discovered this hobby existed in April and upgraded my way through mid-fi, settling on warm, bassy cannons as my preferred sound signature. Then I bought some Stax NBs and have sold off all my planars and dynamics other than Lawton-cupped and modded EMU Teaks, Sundaras and likely the balanced...

    On Birgir's website, he's selling prototype electrostats using custom diaphragms inside an SR-X driver. I've never heard the SR-X, and even then I'm sure it wouldn't help as so much has been changed. I'm effectively debating between this and the L700. I hate the look of the boxy lambdas, but...
