INCLUDES STAX SR-507 EARSPEAKERS WITH STAX SRM-727MKII DRIVER

The first SR-Λ (Lambda) series was introduced 30 years ago, and now the SR-507 has accomplished further evolution with its new sounding body (sound element).The conventional sound element has employed simplest structure so that as wide film diaphragm area as possible can be effectively used in comparison with its external size. Taking advantage of the conventional feature, the new sound element has been packaged in a tough resin case. Thus the new sound element has realized cleaner sound and more accurate sound image.
Also new thin-film material almost free from stretch through temperature or humidity has been adopted, enabling both the rich, deep low-frequency and the delicate high-frequency sound.

NEW STYLE ARC ASSEMBLY
The new style arc assembly (head band) uses STAX first 10-click slider mechanism for head-pad height adjustment. The new arc assembly has achieved the optimal wear comfort for almost all people. Moreover, once adjusted, the slider always maintains its optimal position to make its readjustment unnecessary.Also the new mechanism softens the side pressure to an ear, enabling you to enjoy hours of comfortable listening to music.

LOW-CAPACITANCE WIDE FORMAT HYBRID CABLE
Valuable 6N high-purity annealed copper wires (φ0.14x3) are employed for the core wires, and six silver-plated annealed copper wires (φ0.08x9) are arranged for the perimeter. The whole cable uses the conventional wide parallel structure to lower the capacitance between each wire strand. This further improves the "freshness of sound"

GENUINE LEATHER EARPADS
Although the main purpose of adopting genuine leather (sheepskin) ear pad is aimed at its breath-ability as well as the improvement of the wear feeling through its pliability to the head, it also greatly contributes to improve the "freshness of sound" and "the grace of sound.

●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.

●The output stage has been incorporated by newly developing a non-feedback (NON-NFB) large current emitter follower Class A amplification circuit. This makes it possible to achieve a much more vivid and dynamic sound quality.
●The emitter follower at the output stage makes it possible to achieve lower impedance. A major expansion in dynamic range in the upper frequency has also been achieved.
●DC amplifier configuration without the use of a coupling condenser.
●A high sound quality, low noise FET is used at the input stage with a simple two-stage amplifying circuit. A natural and pure sound quality with high information quantity is realized.
●When connecting your favorite attenuator or pre-amplifier, a direct switch that avoids duplication of the volume unit is included.
●In order to avoid magnetic distortion, the chassis is made of aluminum materials, thereby contributing to purity of sound.
●Amplification is set at a low level, thereby facilitating subtle adjustment of volume during XLR input and when using high-output CD players, etc.
●Parallel output terminals (RCA) are included to enable the signal to pass through.
