Amplification (Pre/Power) / Re: Stax DA50 mono amplifiers
« Last post by brenden on March 26, 2018, 10:13:23 PM »
Work is progressing on the DA50 monos .
   2 electrolytics  in the super shunt regulators replaced with Elna Silmic 2 alpha  super golds . All the small blue caps  0.1uf  replaced with 0.01 uf  Auricaps . The .01 size  is so much more  natural  its not funny . I have proven  this many times  over. Curiously the big brother , Stax DA100  used all .01 uf caps  and apart from the output  transistors  the circuit  is identical  to  the  DA50.
     So how is it sounding ?       Stunning. !

Otari before re lapping, you can see quite asymmetrical wear pattern.

Amplification (Pre/Power) / Headphones is this the Worlds most expensive

I went to Audio connection last week and had a listen to these headphones, the price was around $85000 Australian. Yes that is right $85000. What do you get for that money. Well it did sound very good. What brand you Ask, i think they are Sennheiser's Orpheus. Its probably worth it because it does have a volume control. I am taking orders.

I had a 4 STLX Copper caps laying around so i put them to good use. Out went the 4 Jupiter Copper foil caps and i installed 4 of these caps. Why because i could. Now it is just different, but excellent, basically its name your poison, but as i said before its no longer a cheap rebuild.
