  1. Thanks for the update Todd! I've received dozens and dozens of emails from some very worried people so I'm glad it is back.
  2. I would place that as top tier stupidity
  3. No, not at all. The 500t is more similar to the 600ltd amp with presumably a bit lower rail voltages but still the same circuit as the T1. I have a 700t here and it is terrible in stock form, just awful. Utterly lifeless but adding a CCS really transforms the thing into something decent.
  4. No, not at all but they are very sensitive to static which is the most likely culprit
  5. I've fixed at least five of these over the years, all with bad mosfets so they just fail. Once swapped out the amps spring to life.
  6. 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.
  7. The rest of the driver will also probably fall apart as the glue is so fragile and you will end up with dead drivers.
  8. 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?
  10. The RK50 is only available in 10K as a stereo unit, the quad's are always 50K AFAIK.
  11. 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.
  12. Those things are terrible, do not use them for a bias supply. They are noisy beyond belief.
  13. 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.
