SRM-T8000 is Stax’s latest flagship electrostatic headphone amplifier utilizing hybrid technology. It employs two 6922 in the input stage, driving a Class-A solid-state output stage. The vacuum tubes isolated in a separate section made of vibration-proof damper and shield cover to eliminate vibration and noise. The high-capacity large toroidal transformers and selected high-quality parts allow the highest refinement in sound.
• 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.

New Flagship Earspeaker SR-009S.
Sound element with new fixed electrodes
If the fixed electrode becomes infinitely thinner, the air resistance will be de- creased and the permeability of sound waves will be improved. On the other hand, thinner electrodes are poor in rigidity and suffer from vibrations of their own and the sound becomes muddy.The SR-009S evolved further the electrode established in the SR-009 as the integration of presenttechnology.
The edges of electrode hole were smoothened through after-etching processing to reduce air resistance, and the permeability of sound has been much more improved. Moreover, gold plating processing with large specific gravity further decreased the electrode vibration. Finally, the sound clarity has been achieved by reducing the resistance of electrode itself.
Tough solid aluminum chassis
It employed secures firmly the sound element, con- tributing to improve the clearness of sound. Furthermore, the case thickness has been reduced to the limit, making the flow of condensation-and-rarefaction air wave from the sound element more smooth.
New designed guard mesh
Intensity has been increased by giving roundness to the “guard mesh” of sound element, which lowered the influence of reflection and improved the resolu- tion of sound.
