The SRM-T8000 is an exclusive driver unit (power amplifier) with a 4-input selector developed in order to ideally drive STAX electrostatic ear peakers.
The unit incorporates a high-quality double-axis 4-gang volume controller along with XLR connectors that can connect to all kinds of analog line-level output terminals.
The hybrid amplifier configuration with strictly selected low-noise 6922 dual triode tube for the first stage and high-current emitter-follower at the output stage brings out the maximum performance of ear peakers. Its natural un-colored sound has been realized by eliminating the coupling capacitor that affects the sound
The balanced amplifier configuration with low-noise dual-triode tube eliminated transformer or inverting amplifier after the XLR balanced input terminal.
Non-magnetic chassis construction is employed, and only the carefully selected electronic components free from aged deterioration are used taking both their sonic quality and performance into consideration.
The SRM-T8000 is equipped with a “direct mode” function, enabling it to connect to the preamplifier output terminal or to use your favorite Also, two RCA inputs and XLR balanced input can bypass the incorporated volume controller (Line 4 input does not have this function).
An optional extension slot (LINE4) is provided for future use. Refer to the instruction manual of this optional card.
The foot rubber of the SRM-T8000 features fire-resistant ultra-hard high-grip type and vibration-proof properties. So the unit hardly slides when placed on a table etc. Please lift it up when you move it.
