Released mid-2021, STAX have introduced the SRM-500T to replace the previous mid-level SRM-006tS driver unit.

SRM-500T features a pair of 6FQ7/6CG7 vacuum tubes as the output stage, driven by custom-made low noise dual FET. STAX prides itself in offering a great value electrostatic driver at the best possible performance.

In addition to the conventional power transformer for the high voltage circuit, the SRM-500T features newly-designed power transformer with windings for the low voltage circuit. This low voltage winding improves power efficiency and achieves better sound quality than conventional vacuum tube output driver units.

An improved, more rigid chassis is installed, using a hybrid structure of non-magnetic aluminium which further reduces the effect of vibrations and environmental noise factors.

The inputs are RCA and XLR, both mutual exclusion design. The custom-made, concentric dual volume knob common to STAX products, and RCA Parallel Out functions are installed as per conventional driver units. All electric components are strictly selected considering the environment, sound quality and overall performance is improved.

The complete DC amplifier configuration includes no-coupling condensers, one of the biggest traditional features. Delivering clear and highly transparent sound – a feature of this vacuum tube circuit – in addition to a warm, wide texture, and improved thickness of the low-mid range. This driver unit is the new choice for the advanced lambda series earspeakers (SR-L300/SR-L500 MK2/SR-L700 MK2).

More Information



Founded in 1938, STAX brought the world’s first electrostatic headphone to market in 1960 and today continues their long tradition by offering the finest products for both professional and audiophile applications.

All STAX headphones are referred to as "earspeakers" – the company states that such ultra-high fidelity devices can only be compared with the best cost-no-object loudspeakers, not other headphones. Their unique amplifiers, earspeakers and drivers are highly sought-after products, and extremely well considered by aficionados in the audio industry.

Unilet Sound & Vision are one of the oldest STAX dealers in the UK, and one of the very few official outlets for their products.
