    Thanks for letting me know about those pins. I'll let you know what happens with the project.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    That's useful, thank you. I have gone through a few threads found here and around about making the jack, but the part that will probably be most difficult and requiring measurement is machining the female pins. I suppose it could be cheaper to inversely determine things by using a plug as the model.

    The Headcase Stax thread

    I'm considering getting some custom Stax-style jacks made and thinking that the most reliable way would be to get the measurements from an actual Stax jack. There are some cheap 5-pin electret amps out there that I wouldn't mind paying to possibly destroy, so I'm wondering: is that socket exactly the same as the Pro 5-pin?

    For anyone in the DC area, after Axpona this weekend we'll have them indefinitely at LTA/Urban HiFi, and I'll bring them to any meets in the area. Post-Axpona update: Dan needed the set for shows and will replace it with an earlier revision that is still useful to us in development, but I'll need to check about whether they would be a reliable demo pair.
