  1. The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    So, I am curious as the amphenol connectors body are insulated....unless scraping off the insulation (bottom body to faceplate into the screws going to chassis) to install the braided mesh for shielding to Ground to reject EMI/RFI as the braiding and or twisting is merely enough.....what do people do for shielding purposes ? Thanks very much
  2. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    I ran it from 18 and 16 before. For the carbon, I prefer 16mA for Stax 009, but on Grounded Grid I stay at 20mA. On 009 and 16mA, the bass has better warmth and the tonality has more realistic tone to it in comparison to 20mA, but other people may not agree

    @tomoki have u ever found your problem? Checked 9360 ? Is the 390k burned ? Hope u found it

    My bad, you have problem with RCA. It seems the best way to do it is to change sources and cables being used. Rca is SE, so shield is the same as return signals maybe try to cut the shield going into the amp, but keep the return signals for music, and keep the shield on the source end. Doing this will deflect noises toward the source chassis instead of going into the amp

    This scares me....just went ahead and measured my SummR transformers. I didn’t get any data sheet, but only given email details which were just as Is.....I thought I would ask for confirmation to double check....but thanks Birgir, I put them through my DMM just for the hell of it. I had the funny feeling though...was hoping that the Primary winding would not be messed up....tested it too.... all turned out great! Unloaded T1 and T2 for Hv trans 601 and 598 352 and 350 94 and 93
  7. Power switch recommendation

    Well, some one gave me an idea to do RBG for the indicator for LV delay, and then Hv illumination too. I have not thought of doing that, the closest is the 12V (corrected). However, I still want to try to keep the amp as pure as possible without nothing Tap into it Power run. This is the coolest idea, though, not very practical as I don’t think 1 HP (hamster Power) can do it.
  8. Power switch recommendation

    Uhm, I just want the T2 to be “almost” perfect, so I don’t want to Tap into any of it Power .
  9. Power switch recommendation

    Anyone has any cool idea for T2 powerswitch with LED that don’t tap into 15 and 500 V ? Or should we just go ....no LeD

    Has anyone used JJ E88CC for 6DJ8 ? I rather prefer it than trying to find some vintage tubes at horrible prices

    This is very true. People who wants the best would do GRLV later Is there advantage and disadvantages from using BH PSU ?

    So, in the end...what was the problems that you have found ?
  13. The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    Thank you ! And perhap the scariest of building T2 is the combination of both, expensive parts and “fakes” sands. I have been trolling around and asked a few other members who finished their T2 on sourcing parts. I was told that 2sc3675 can be found here as well. If anyone look for them http://www.wakamatsu.co.jp/cgi-bin/psearch.cgi?page=0&word=2sc3675 2sc3381 can be found here....and I also have some from Justin as well . Justin had a few orders couple months ago too. BDent also have some but pricy http://www.classicaudioparts.com/index.php/electronic-parts/toshiba-2sc3381bl-transistor.html Classic Audio on left, Justin on the right. Using the cheap Ebay tester has seen authentic to specs so far.

    Has anyone else been using 2sk216 from Renesas Audio ?
  15. stax t8000 clone (well sorta)

    What ? T-Perfected-Over-Standard ? JK, but that is sad....we need Stax to be serious again
