Stax SRM-T1W - tube based Driver / Pre amp
Will Ship To: CONUS
Stax SRM-T1W - $725.00 shipped to CONUS
I just bought this in the past two weeks from a fellow Head-fi user; ultimately, this being my first move towards replacing my long standing dynamic rig with a full electrostatic set up. FWIW, this amp also can function as a passive pre amplifier. There are some decent review comments regarding this fairly rare Stax driver unit to be found HERE.
Unfortunately, at 12.5" x 12", I am finding it much to large for my limited desk space and I am quickly putting it back up for sale so as to purchase one of the smaller, typically "narrow" Stax driver units that will better fit my listening space.
NOTE: the amplifier has three RCA INPUTS on the back of the unit, select-able by a knob on the front panel; ONE of these three RCA INPUTs is missing the gold connector cap. Therefore, functionally, the amp only has TWO working, select-able INPUTs on the rear panel. This should not represent any problem unless you actually plan on using all three inputs simultaneously. For what it's worth, sourcing the minor repair of this single RCA connector should not be difficult if one MUST have all three inputs functioning.
Otherwise, functionally the amp is perfect and sounds amazing (I'm listening through SR-307's currently).
I will be posting pics as soon as I'm able to do the amp justice as it is in truly pristine cosmetic condition (other than the RCA input on back mentioned above). Reportedly and according to the previous seller, the amp was initially purchased from an "estate sale" and appeared to have little use, and having thoroughly inspected the external and internals of the amp, I would have to concur, at least in so far as visual indications appear: no scratches, internal caps, PCB, resistors, etc. appear as new.
Once more, I will be posting extensive pics here in very short order.
