NEW STAX SRM-T 8000 ELECTROSTATIC HEADPHONE AMPLIFIER


It seems legendary Blue Hawaii ultimate electrostatic headphone preamplifier finally got its official rival with the Stax ultimate ($5.400) headphone amplifier.

SRM-T 8000 Hybrid headphone amplifier implements 6922 double-triode in the first stage and solid state pure A Class in the output stage.

To avoid unwanted resonances and micro vibrations tubes are mounted on the separate board via vibration-proof dampers and dedicated shield cover t prevents the RFI noise and to enter the chassis.

High capacity, large toroidal transformers and other high-quality parts were carefully selected for the best performance.
