Stax SRM-727Mk2 Headphone Amplifier

Stax

The SRM-727II features non-feedback (NON-NFB) output stage for the first time ever in STAX drivers. Large current emitter follower Class A amplification circuit. This makes it possible to achieve a much more vivid and dynamic sound quality with frequency response raised to 115kHz (from 100kHz).

  • The electrostatic method is a playback method which involves the installation of drive electrodes on either side of a high-polymer film diaphragm with a thickness of only a few microns into each of which a plus signal and a minus signal are fed. This means that XLR connection with a pure balance output CD player makes it possible to listen to the original sound permitted by the balance system without a conversion circuit.    

    • Careful selection of parts with high consideration on sound quality, performance, and the environment. Low noise FET is used at the input stage with a simple two-stage amplifying circuit.
    • SRM-727II provides a bypass mode that enables "direct" connection to preamplifiers, passive volume controls or integrated amplifiers and receivers with Pre-out. A direct switch that avoids duplication of volume control.
