Stax steps out with a por­ta­ble elec­tro­static amp

Australian HIFI - - CONTENTS -

Stax is ar­guably the best range of head­phones (or ‘ear­s­peak­ers’ as Stax pre­fer to call them) in the world. If there was a down­side it would be that be­ing elec­tro­static they re­main teth­ered to your au­dio sys­tem with­out the op­por­tu­nity to use them in por­ta­ble sit­u­a­tions.

This has now changed with the re­lease of the SRM-D10 bat­tery-pow­ered POR­TA­BLE Elec­tro­static Head­phone Amp/DAC (pic­tured be­low).

This unit will ac­cept all 5-pin Stax elec­tro­static head­phones. It has both a Mi­croUSB dig­i­tal in­put and a 3.5mm ana­logue in­put. The high-res­o­lu­tion DAC han­dles DSD128 and PCM au­dio with an up to 384KHz sam­ple rate. Price $1,495.
