  1. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    From what I heard, 007 MKI was an excellent pairing with Carbon, not sure about MkII
  2. I/V converters

    Does this mean what I think it means ?
  3. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    I was reminded by the experts here to only use 600V and 1/2W rated Resistors ?
  4. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    This reminded me a pool game where sinking the 8 ball was an automatic lost good time, and good quote
  5. goldenreference low voltage power supply

    Sorry but I am a brick, why use the zeners Bridges instead ?
  6. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    Just like I did, and actually, it is the best time now to get a T2, before too late. George may still has a chassis from the last GB?

    There you go ! Blue Hawaii welcome to the new addiction ! Absolutely, he is a legendary cook for our taste
  8. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    Congratulations @Blueman2 , yes the Carbon is awesome. The reason I asked about voltage rating on the blocks were because I suspect this rating is more about it body insulation in between the terminals spacing, and arcing is not pretty. But it does look very nice and just fine. I still don’t know how they put the rating on these blocks
  9. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    I like that terminal blocks, what parts number from digikey ? Is it 600v rated ?
  10. KGSSHV Carbon Build Thread

    I agree about Bias voltage. Did KG mentioned that anything over 600V will damage the Headphones ?
  11. The Headcase Stax thread

    Thank you very much Birgir !
  12. The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    I bought these off Tubedepot, and always checked the option of Balance and matching. The only way to know is to buy new Quad matched elsewhere and try again, but if 1 of the JJ is out of whack, then swapping sides will prove that right ? Even with JJ swapped side, the balanced and offset just swapped over. I think you are correct as that this seller does not do Dual triode matching. However, I will still gonna buy those Philips but from Other place this time

    Ah, these are Philips gawd, a lot of confusion. I guess, the T2 really plays nicer with 6922 rather than 6dj8 ?
  14. The ultimate DIY? A Stax SRM-T2!

    I tried the Green label JAN 6dj8, and eventhough it was Balanced from the store. It was no good. The balances went crazy from -2V to +3V in a blink that the DMM couldn’t even keep up. The offset on Left channel was reading 25V and the one in the right channel was reading 177V....holy cow. I turned off and took them out as soon as I could.....luckily....no smell... Stuck back on the JJ goldpin ECC88 and the Balanced started right out below 500mV and keep going down steadily into +30 and -30mV on Left, and +150 to -150mV on right. Balances was dropping steadily when started out 4.5V on Left, and 6.5V on right and drop quickly, probably within couple minutes and it dropped to 0.8V on Left and 1.5V on right, and keep dropping down. I think these JJ goldpin are meant to be in there. Better stick to what works as T2 is not something to be playing around with. The next thing is probably a quad of Xf2 as everyone is saying they sound beautiful. I have no choice but to get a Quad to get the best out of my T2 and while sticking to what work best.

    Okay, going to swap out these JJ and put them in together with Winged C el34, and no more tube rolling! Thank you so very much
