The ST-80 delivers a detailed reproduction with a touch of warmth accompanied by a full bodied sound quality. The transformer is magnetically shielded in a permalloy case, which in turn is inserted into a robust 10mm thick aluminum cylinder bored out of a solid aluminum block. Together with the heavy metal case the transformer effectively isolates against environmental noise.
The ST-80 SE is built as a pure dual mono model, which ensures maximum channel separation. Internal point-to-point wiring is made by Teflon insulated, solid-core pure OFC copper-wire plated with gold. Together with high quality gold plated RCA jacks with Teflon insulation that ensures the optimum signal transmission and integrity.
