Cables and related items

Time to split up the pages further as this one will be for the special cables I build from time to time.  No silly headphone recabling or anything here though.  Feel free to contact me at if you are interested in any item here.  I will reply to every mail so if you haven’t received a reply within 24 hours then feel free to send me another email.  Email gets lost all the time or is flagged as spam.  All prices in US dollars (USD).

This is a Sennheiser HE90 (Orpheus) to Stax adapter.  It uses the original Fischer plug and has a built in 5.1M resistor inline on the bias which makes sure the charge characteristics of the diaphragm are to spec.  The new version of these uses the high grade silver plated Stax cable and a new custom made plug.

Price: 260$ plus shipping

This is the opposite of the cable above.  This takes the output from a Sennheiser HEV90 “Orpheus” amplifier and converts it to a Stax socket.  Not sure if there is any demand for one of these but I made some.

Koss ESP950 and Drop ESP95x to Stax adapter so the Koss headphones can be used on any 5 pin Pro bias amp

This is a Monoprice Monolith electrostatic adapter to Stax so you can use them with any Stax amplifier.

Here is a simple Sennheiser HE60 to Stax adapter.  The plug on the HE60 is propitiatory so no way to just buy some.  So I designed a simple PCB with sockets on it and all the resistors need to make them run well on a Stax amp and voila, a cheap adapter.

I made a couple of these cables for the Kaldas Research RR1 Conquest phones from Stax cables and mini XLR connectors.  I prefer these over the stock cable so I thought somebody might want to try it as well.

I have some 10cm (4″) 3.5mm cables I made from off cuts from my longer silver cables.  These are the same 99.9999% pure silver in Teflon that I use in my Carbon CC.

Price:  75$ plus shipping

To compliment the Carbon CC, I’ve made interconnects using the same wire and Neutrik connectors.  The cable is three strands of 24AWG, solid core 99.99% pure soft silver braided together, finished with a clear Techflex and Neutrik connectors.  I have XLR, RCA and RCA to XLR cables in stock in various lengths.  I usually stock 1m, 0.75m and 0.5m cables but I can also make custom ones.  I’ve been using these cables for about 12 years now and my entire system is wired with these.

Price:   400$ plus shipping for the 50cm length

             575$ plus shipping for the 75cm length

             700$ plus shipping for the 100cm length
