The HA-4 is not only a state of the art class A headphone amplifier, it can also be used as a compact high-end pre-amplifier. The design is similar to our top of the range Sapphire DAP-800 and will drive any dynamic headphone. Featuring Sugden VCV circuit and coupled to a pure class A zero feedback mosfet output stage. The HA-4 is unconditionally load stable with a discrete constant voltage series power supply. A high input impedance ensures absolute minimal loss of signal with perfect current gain.
The SRM-D50 is a high-performance electrostatic driver and Digital-to-Analog Converter, inspired by the battery-powered SRM-D10. With an elegant all-in-one design, the D50 creates a simple solution for any music lovers to experience the legendary sound of Stax earspeakers.
All semiconductor driver unit that has adopted custom-made low-noise dual FET at the first stage, and for the first time in STAX driver unit history J-FET has been employed at the second stage. The output of J-FET excellent in low-noise amplification as well as large current emitter follower circuit brings out the full performance of earspeakers. Even the music source with much high-frequency ingredients can easily be driven. The driver unit pursues an exact reproduction of musical details.
"6SN7" GT tube has been adopted in the second stage of the vacuum tube system, while custom-made low-noise dual FET is employed in the first stage. The vacuum tube 6SN7 that has become the original form of 6FQ7 realizes simple and powerful performance. The hybrid type driver has adopted the high-quality non-inductive winding resistor from VISHAY Co. as a load resistance. The clear and high slew-rate vacuum tube sound has been improved further to polish up warm and spacious reproduction.
STAX introduces a new semiconductor driver unit SRM-400S, the successor model of the SRM-353X. STAX custom-made low noise DUAL FET is installed on First Stage. And FET is also installed on Last Stage. The characteristics of right FET and left FET are measured strictly. Selected FET are installed as well as SRM-700S. SRM-400S succeeds to the design and the manufacturing method of the high end model SRM-700S, the amplifier which FET are installed in all stages.
The SRM-500T, which follows the numerical sequence of the SRM-700 series, is the successor model to the vacuum tube driver unit SRM-006tS and is 11 years in the making.
STAX custom-made low-noise DUAL FET is used for the first stage, and high-voltage double triode 6FQ7 / 6CG7 is used for the output stage. While following the traditional circuit design which is perfect for STAX vacuum tube drivers, we have improved the efficiency of the power supply and further improved the sound quality.
