    Long way of saying"we'll deliver it when we're good and ready". It still can't be as useless as USPS tracking.

    Not a lot of fans here at all. Other than the for sale stuff, I don't read much over there.

    This coming from a well respected audio supplier trying to sell me something. More likely this.

    I'm looking forward to reviews. Looks like you have approached this with a great deal of thought. I used to work in industrial support for lens and camera production. So manufacturing process details are of interest. I might have to start saving up my $$$.

    I'm ready for an honest test and complete disassembling of them. Some small part of me hopes that a new headphone that doesn't cost $2000 can sound decent. But, reality is a bitch.

    I see these over in the other place. $500 Stat, based on pro bias. New offering from India. It said in the thread Spritzer will be getting a set. True, lies, or Trumpism?

    Any bets on how long it takes for that video to show up in the internet?

    Refurbing a Stax SRM-1/Mk-2

    How's your soldering skills? You might want to grab some junk circuit board to practice on. Other than that, the recap job is pretty simple.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    $400-500 US is pretty typical of late for a SRM1 MKII. Getting back to the hum issue, have you tried borrowing a different source? Those old multidisc cd players are getting up there in age.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    The network of stax dealers in the U.S. collapsed. The distributor (Yama's) was always a PITA. There's a couple of online dealer's, but most of the brick and mortar dealers bailed. They really need to make an effort to get this going again. The Dallas dealer always was well stocked and had demo headphones out all the time. They currently have one of the best headphone demo areas I've seen in the US. They have Senns, Grados, PSBs, and others out with a decent amp and source. It sold quite a few Stax systems there and I'm sure they could again .You'd think the new management would be all about making this happen.

    I think a mental health check is in order. Licking the doorbell is a bit over the top by anyone's standards. Next up, fondling garbage?
