  1. The T1S and T1W are pretty much identical in every way, there is just a connection off the volume pot to create a passive preamp. There is also no benefit to the variable bias as it doesn't go above 580V.
  2. The rest of the driver will also probably fall apart as the glue is so fragile and you will end up with dead drivers.
  3. There is a good point of view to have in life, never buy anything from Hifiman!

    They are single ended planars, is anybody expecting a sane amount of distortion?
  5. The RK50 is only available in 10K as a stereo unit, the quad's are always 50K AFAIK.
  6. NB just gives you lower potential, so a weaker electrostatic field, hence less control over all. The top end is the hardest to reproduce with electrostatics so it will have a large impact.
  7. Those things are terrible, do not use them for a bias supply. They are noisy beyond belief.
  8. I would be very skeptical of any FR graphs for the 007's, they are next to impossible to measure correctly. Ohh and that conclusion is completely false... I did order up a new 007A which should be here soon. Let's see if Stax changed anything.
  9. You would have to make a bias supply from scratch as there is nothing you can simply tap into here.
  10. I hadn't heard anything about a new version but I might pick one up and try it out. Always an excuse...
  11. If there is enough copper there to solder a wire to, then it can be fixed but I've come across some units which were beyond hope.
  12. This is the 240V setting. If you wouldn't move the white wire the transformer would be set to 220V which isn't a great idea these days. That picture of the wires doesn't tell us anything as the windings entering the transformer are not visible. Just pull off the PCB or use a volt meter to measure between blue and brown and then green and purple. Should be a few ohms but if you have nothing... then the windings have been cut.
