New Achievements in Diaphragm and Stator Design
The SR-009S further evolves the electrode established in the SR-009 as the integration of present technology. New research reveals that if the fixed electrode becomes infinitely thinner, the air resistance will be decreased and the permeability of sound waves will be improved.
The edges of electrode holes were smoothed through after-etching processing to reduce air resistance and the permeability of sound has been much more improved. Moreover, gold plating processing with large specific gravity further decreased the electrode vibration. Finally, the highest sound clarity has been achieved by reducing the resistance of electrode itself.
Tough solid aluminum chassis
It secures the sound element firmly, contributing to improve the clarity and resolution of the sound. Furthermore, the case thickness has been reduced to the limit, making the flow of condensation-and-rarefaction air wave from the sound element smoother.
New designed guard mesh
Intensity has been increased by rounding the “guard mesh” of sound element, which lowered the influence of reflection and improved the resolution of the sound.
Audiophiles dream of owning full range electrostatic speakers but lets face it, they take up a lot of space and require robust amplification. Stax offers the equivalent or an even better listening experience for much less money. Headphones take the room and its reflections out of the sound so all you hear is the recording, just the music. Audio nirvana is here today with the Stax SR-009S earspeakers.
A unique custom Stax 5-pin cable was designed with the aim of achieving an even higher level of reproduction and performance. High-purity copper wire of 99.9999% (6Nines) adopted for the cable is silver-coated and finished with the most desirable form factor to drive the earspeaker. High sound quality is achieved through the extreme thickness and separation of each conductor to minimize capacitance, cross-talk. and EMI.
