Introducing The STAX SRS-X1000 - An All-New Ear speaker + Energiser Combo

STAX launches yet another exceptional earspeaker + energiser combo that perfectly merges tradition with innovation. This combo is an accessible yet uncompromised device in the elite domain of electrostatic ear speaker audio systems. The new entry-level ear speaker, STAX SR-X1, honours its predecessors, the SR-1 and SR-X, by blending their classic heritage with modern design to deliver superior electrostatic sound. It's paired with the SRM-270S energizer as the driver unit of the STAX SRS-X1000. Whether you're a seasoned audiophile or new to high-fidelity sound, the SRS-X1000 aims to provide an immersive music-listening experience.

Unparalleled Electrostatic Sound That Does Not Disappoint

The STAX SR-X1 electrostatic ear speakers feature a middle round shape sound element with a frequency response of 7Hz to 41,000Hz. They have an electrostatic capacitance of 110pF, an impedance of 145kΩ and a sound pressure sensitivity of 101dB. Also, it provides minimal harmonic distortion of 0.01% or less, ensuring crystal-clear sound quality in your music listening experience.

Newly Designed Sound Unit For Improved Audio Quality

The all-new STAX SR-X1 features a newly designed medium-sized circular sound unit, delivering the flat and neutral sound signature that defines electrostatic ear speakers. The sound unit is directly mounted inside the chamber with minimal joints, improving sound accuracy and clarity. The back slit structure is smoothly curved to allow natural sound wave passage, reducing distortion. Also, the SR-X1 adopts a re-cable structure and rational design for maximised performance for high sound quality in your music listening experience.

Lightweight Metal Build Coupled With Premium Earpads For Comfort

The STAX SR-X1 features an improved arc design and provides a comfortable fit. It utilises metal materials for the frame to eliminate unnecessary vibrations and enhance rigidity. This updated arc assembly combines the arc and headband into a lightweight build, reducing listening fatigue during extended music sessions. This lightweight design is coupled with premium ear pads made of lambskin to provide a more cosy and secure fit.

Core That Powers Up The SRS-X1000

The SRM-270S driver unit is the heart of the SRS-X1000. It's designed with improved heat dissipation and ensures high-grade connectivity, featuring a 3mm-thick front aluminium panel and a large aluminium extrusion case for effective heat management. The unit provides RCA inputs for easy connectivity and selected low-noise FET for the first-stage amplifier and refined emitter follower circuit in the output stage for exceptional audio clarity. Its compact chassis offers easy placement, transportability and aesthetic appeal. Also, it features parallel out terminals to facilitate flexible connectivity to another energiser, making it easy to incorporate into existing audio systems for music enjoyment or enhancing movie experiences at your desktop or bedside.

Impressive Measurements For Delivering Immersive Music

The SRM-270S driver unit provides impressive amplification capabilities, with a frequency response ranging from DC to 35,000Hz (+0, -3dB) and harmonic distortion of 0.01% or less at 1kHz 100V r.m.s. It can amplify the sound up to 58dB (800 times) and provide a maximum output voltage of 280V r.m.s. at 1kHz. The input impedance is 25kΩ, with input terminals featuring RCA connections and a parallel output terminal. The unit operates with a bias voltage of 580V DC, powered by an included AC adaptor with a power consumption of 12VDC/500mA. Its external dimensions are 132(W)×38(H)×153(D)mm, excluding protruding parts.

Japanese Electrostatic Pioneers From 1938

Stax, founded in 1938, is a Japanese company that makes high-end audio equipment. Twenty-two years later, in 1960, Stax released their first electrostatic earspeaker, the Stax SR-1. Over the following thirty-six years, Stax produced a variety of amplification, earspeaker, tonearm, CD player, DAC, phono cartridge and loudspeaker products.

Stax is best known for its electrostatic and electret headphones, which they call earspeakers. Electrostatic headphones work similarly to electrostatic loudspeakers but on a smaller scale. In 1995, fifty-seven years after the company’s foundation, it became insolvent. The company was revived in 1996 as the new STAX company. In December 2011, Chinese loudspeaker manufacturer Edifier announced the acquisition of 100% equity in Stax.

Mind melting

My first STAX setup. Brilliantly detailed and natural sound. Can be slightly bright in the highs. The headphones (or earphones) are very light weight and comfortable. Headband doesn't have any cushioning and adjusting it is a bit cumbersome. For medium sized ears, the seal is good and cups envelope the ears. For large ear size, might be more on ear but shouldn't be uncomfortable as the clamp force is light.
Thoroughly enjoying the electrostat experience. [Owning HD600 and Edition XS previously]. Setup used: DAP -> 3.5mm to RCA-> Energizer 270S -> Stax SR-X1

Few things to consider
1. The earphone unit comes across as delicate so have to be careful in handling it. Better to purchase a case to keep dust out as there’s no pouch or case included.
2. Bass is decent but similar to or bit less than planars and nowhere close to dynamic drivers so if a basshead then may find lacking in punch.
3. Sometimes the high level of details could be distracting or if song is not well recorded, it will not be enjoyable as the earphones are very transparent.
4. There's a crackle/crincle sound sometimes if the cups move while listening [turning the head or adjusting the cups]. Something new for me coming from planars and dd.
5. Energizer + earphones needed so can't use earphones without buying energizer. [This is combo unit so getting both]. Bundled cable is good but too long.
