What is it?
STAX Japan introduce the SRM-D10, the world’s first compact DAC / electrostatic amp unit. High-performance DAC for PC / Mac and variety of digital audio sources, from the desktop part of the amplifier can be adapted STAX mainstream electrostatic earspeakers. Now you can take the SRM-D10 to your home, office, or out door and enjoy the superb sound from STAX anytime, and anywhere you go.
The SRM-D10 is the world’s first compact electrostatic amp/DAC. Now, you can enjoy the freedom of using all modern Stax electrostatic headphones (PRO bias) anywhere you go. The built-in high-resolution DAC is capable playing up to DSD128 files.
The SRM-D10 drives the SR-L300 through L700 series quite well and does surprisingly well with the SR-009 series for being a small portable amp. The SR-007 and MrSpeakers Voce definitely push the limits of this amp’s voltage output.
Finally a portable solution for driving STAX headphones! The SRM-D10 delivers a surprising punch for its diminutive size, driving the modern STAX headphone lineup to reasonably high listening levels in typical conditions. With a 3.5-4.5 hour battery life, and the open nature of STAX headphones, it makes for more of a transportable rig, but for those who want to enjoy their electrostatic headphones when they travel, there is nothing else like it!
