Stax Releases New SRM-400S Driver Unit
« on: June 02, 2021, 07:15:24 PM »
Stax has a new solid-state energiser for its PRO-class electrostatic earspeakers.

Designed to replace the stalwart mid-level SRM-353X, the SRM-400S sports a new FET-based DC amplifier stage with selected transistors, echoing the design of the high-end SRM-700S, the company says.

Well, I guess Edifier must be doing something right.

Jokes aside, this acquisition has been very fruitful.  Build quality has (apparently) improved greatly.
If you don't understand the difference between "their", " there" and "they're" then your a idiot.

Well it couldn't get much worse, could it :-* Seriously though, it's good to see the new owners taking the brand forward.

Granted, the Lambda series earspeakers still creak and groan as if collapse is imminent, but historically their amps have been very well built and many have stood the test of time.

Looks like Stax has silently introduced another amp as well!
It would be cool if one didn't have to stumble across this fact on their website:

Stax introduces a new model SRM-500T to replace its successor of SRM-006tS.
The SRM-500T utilizes a pair of 6FQ7/6CG7 vacuum tubes as the output, driven by custom-made low noise dual FET.
