All efforts have been made to drive STAX electrostatic type earspeaker more ideally. Here's the top model of the driver unit (Amplifier) which lavishly adopted the technology and know-how STAX has accumulated over many years. The model name is entitled "T" which is the genealogy of former driver units, and the hybrid circuit using dual triode and semiconductor greatly expands the possibility of the earspeaker (Electrostatic headphone)
●The full-balanced transmission of hybrid amplifier configuration with 6922 dual triode tube of established reputation for the first stage and class-A operating semiconductor at output stage realized ultra low-noise, accurate and rich musical expression.
●The vacuum tube of the first stage was mounted on the independent board in order to shut out vibration and external noise. Further, noise has been totally eliminated by vibration-proofing damper and vacuum tube shield cover which are used also for a hard disk etc.
●The large-sized toroidal transformer - for the first time in STAX driver unit history - as well as non-magnetic aluminum chassis has been adopted for unclouded clear tone quality.
●Four pairs of inputs are equipped. (Notes: LINE4 is an optional slot for future purpose. As for now, release is not yet determined.)
●The SRM-T8000 features the EXTERNAL (BYPASS) function which passes the volume controller of the unit and enableｓ volume control through external equipments.
●The newly developed large-sized aluminum insulator, combined with new material of high isolation efficiency and grip power, has been employed.
●Frequency response: 1Hz - 115kHz / when used with one earspeaker
●Rated input level: 100mV (at 100V output)
●Maximum input level: 30Vrms. / at minimum volume
●Harmonic distortion: 0.01% or less / 1kHz / when used with
●Input impedance: 50kΩ / 50kΩx 2 (XLR input)
●Maximum output voltage: 470Vrms
●Mains voltage: AC120V/AC220/AC230/AC240, 50/60Hz
(depending on your country’s voltage)
●Power consumption: 58W (95W with optional slot)
●Operating temperature: 0 to 35 degrees C (less than 90% humidity, non condensing)
●Dimension: 320 (W) x103 (H) x395 (D) mm (protruding portion included)
●Others: equipped with PARALLEL OUT, volume bypass and MUTE function.
