Didn't see any electrostatics, so here goes:

Crossfeed? (yes/no, how many levels) No
Other processors? (yes/no, type, details) No
Portable? (yes/no) Transportable
Power supply (batteries/AC) 12VDC wall wart
Detachable power cord? (only if AC, yes/no) detachable wall wart
Number of headphone jacks 1
Jack output impedance (per jack, if more than one) 580v bias
Jack output (per jack, if more than one -- include @ #Ohms) 280VRMS
Jack type (mini, 1/4", per jack if more than one) Stax 5-conductor jack
Inputs (line, etc., how many) 2 x RCA
Other outputs (line, pre-amp, speaker, etc., how many) none
Speaker output rating (only if speaker out -- include @ #Ohms) N/A
Possible upgrades/upgrade path (tubes, power supply, electronics, etc.) Power supply
Housing material (plastic, steel, aluminum, etc.) Metal
Size (dimensions) 132(W)×38(H)×132(D)mm
Weight 1.1 lb, 0.5kg

edit: I changed the output impedance field to bias voltage. I don't know if electrostatics have an output impedance, but I figured bias voltage would be important to include.
