PMB 500 electrostats any good?

Recommended Posts

Anyone heard these?

Nope but I want one!! Badly! ;D

They are one of Jecklins designs and we know next to nothing about them. Totally incompatible with the Stax standard so you need to use the original step up energizer.

I'm trying to get one. I'll let you know if I get lucky...

Any idea what they would be worth with the original energizer?

Cool! Their worth is hard to fathom since we nothing about them but 2-400$ could be a good guess but it really depends on the sample. There is no way to easily fix them and no source for pads so you are shit out of luck if something breaks.

You should contact digitalmind from head-fi. He has recently bought them and will be taking them to the meet on March the 16th.

Does anyone have some information regarding the transformer box of PMB500?

I recently acquired them but the trafo box seems to be malfunctioning. I am getting no sound fron left side & very weak sound from right.

I opened it up & there are 2 transformers( one for either channel) & the resistors around the trafos seems to be burned out. I can't make out their value. If any one has some info or any tip regarding where to begin, I would be very thankful.

P.S. : I am a newbie to stats & circuits but can wield an iron well enough.
