The burning motivation of the next decade – Tripartist with Stax SR-X9000
SR-009 is the cause of the earphones last ten years, while SR-X9000 will be next.
It has been released from SR-X9000. I really have to make myself to calm down – even when I write these words, I still have some difficulty excitement, yes, I heard it. Her voice has a chance to understand her, not only based on longer listening, but also based on in-depth communication with the original factory.
SR-X9000 is technically an amazing similar to SR-Ω, and the total plate technology is from Stax SR-X, which is launched in 1970. It is in Stax’s first electrostatic headset SR-1 and its later model. Based on SR-3, its design goals, it is quite similar to Hi-Res (I speculate that SR-X is really complete through today’s HI-RES test). Many of the techniques on SR-X are also inherited and promoted on SR-Ω, such as a big name, a large-scale mesh, an increase in the diameter of the unit (SR-X MK3). These design ideas reached an unprecedented peak on SR-Ω, but also made this headset with the historical rivers and lakes in the headphones.
Later, everyone is very familiar, Stax sells SR-009 in 2011. This earphone is more close to the original SR-Ω, which is more close to the legendary SR-Ω. The whole earphone ring is swept away, and then it is also based on the 80th anniversary. On the basis of SR-009, the improved SR-009S is launched, and the two headphones believe that everyone is more familiar. In order to save the provision of me, I can read the relevant part of the reference reading in the article.
The SR-X9000 is now a collection of all techniques in the entire Ω series, first, SR-X9000 is grounded to the rounded corners of SR-X and SR-Ω mesh and SR-009 (S) series The opening plate is combined to precipitate as a MLER-3 substrate technology, not only can effectively guarantee the sound quality, but also enhanced in durability, the technical difficulty here is reliable connection between the mesh plate and the open cell plate. Stax uses a technology called diffusion knot (hot press). After a long development cycle, this polar is finally completed, in order to ensure that durability is also specially plated with a thick gold, the visual effect is extravagant. This special plate is also one of the SR-X9000 named sources, namely the polar gate of SR-X. STAX President Zhongtianxiang, revealed that in the naming rules of a new generation of headphones, the prefix X represents the mesh gate, and the pure digit represents the circular non-mesh gate, λ (lambda) represents long elliptical non-mesh gate; L represents the upgrade of λ (lambda). I thought that it might be called SR-X-Ω, but both mesh gates have a circular gate. The product number must be SR-X + number. After Stax cautious internal vote, or set the product model in SR -X9000. I don’t know if there will be SR-X10000?
The diaphragm size and technology are the second huge evolution of the SR-X9000. SR-X9000 designer today pointed out that the diaphragm area of this product ranked the Ω product line second, reached about 6000mm2, compared to only about 6% compared to SR-009, compared to SR-009, 20% compared to SR-009 . Moreover, this time the diaphragm material, thickness, and coating have also been improved. However, SR-X9000 diaphragm is even one of the highest secrets in Stax, for technical confidential reasons, this part of the information stax does not Excessively open.
The improvement of the third major technology is a newly designed high-transparent cavity, which contains three parts, the first part, and the height of earmuffs. While all-high-low-low setting unit is obliquely optimized, the SR-X9000 earmuffle height is lower than that of the SR-009 series, which effectively reduces the volume of the ear chamber to change certain mixed characteristics. The second part, the double-layer heterogeneous retaining net cover of the headset, the rear net cover of SR-X9000 is much greater than the previous product, and the aperture type is redesigned. Double-layer rear retaining hood uses a heterogeneous plane (there is a certain angle in the middle) to improve reflection and projection ratios, and enhance the reverberation effect. The improvement in the third part is a huge opening of the front metal network. After taking off the sound and sound fabric, it can be found that the metal front net is boldly uses the huge triangle, which is for better breath. In general, this cavity will have a huge impact on the tone of the entire headset.
The technical improvement in the fourth aspect is a new design of the appearance and conversion structure. SR-X9000 is the first headset in the Ω series, and the STAX internal evaluation of SR-X9000 is very high, engineers It is actually a new version of the SR-Ω to enhance quality stability. In response to such a product, it is certainly a gold STAX wiring. It is also convenient for users with different scenarios (I love the short line, and finally don’t have to pay each time I have received the replacement). Supplementary a strategy of a Stax product, judge from the wire identification color, if it is a golden line, then it is definitely a high-end product. If it is a silver stripe, the positioning is slightly, and the two wire quality and impedance have a certain gap. . I don’t know what kind of impact on the electrostatic headset change, and I want to try it again.
Similarly, another standard that determines the positioning of the Stax headset is the appearance. The SR-X9000 is not even setting the SR-009 series side nameplate, and the low-key makes people feel inexplicable, but this is also the judgment point of Stax products. First, the lower the appearance, the more likely it is a killing, such as dark surface treatment (SR-Ω, SR-X9000, SR-009BK). Stax I hope that users can more focus on the sound instead of the value of the value (although the STAX color is also beautiful).
I have seen the discussion of SR-X9000 sound at home and abroad. I also tried some systematic matching these days. Use the system as follows:
Enjoy the AMC-D1 Deluxe Edition
Enjoy D300 Ref
Xiaudio Formula P1000
Clover Audio Geisha
Signal line and power cord:
Crystalline, Onix, Gray Wasters, MBL, etc.
Reference headset: 009bk
In view of the premise of the top static system, the three-frequency response, transient, and extension three major properties are all full, and there is no need to discuss, we directly care about some of the problems concerned.
First of all, whether it is using the set of systems or matches, some conclusions can be obtained on the characteristics of the headphones.
1. The SR-X9000 sound field, space performance is obvious than SR-009BK
2. The sound of the SR-X9000, the looseness is significantly better than SR-009BK
3. The sound of the SR-X9000 is more biased to aesthetically based on accurate basis, and the sound of SR-009BK is more straightforward, and is contained in hearing.
From the amplifier matching angle, if you must choose:
1. Regardless of the SR-009BK or SR-X9000, SRM-T8000’s sound is still as good as ever show and delicate.
2. The SR-X9000 can be loyal to SR-009BK, and SRM-700S is still directly directly.
3. If you use the original amplifier, the SR-X9000 is recommended to use the pre-level + amplifier form to drive.
1.xiaudio formula P1000 sound comparison listener, suitable for forming a relatively comparison of a relatively surplus in combination with SRM-700S + SR-009 series. SR-X9000 can also cooperate well for this comparative straight-white match.
2. Clover Audio Geisha, very delicate and sound, with SRM-700S matching to play SR-X9000 beauty and music.
3. The two pre-stage and SRM-T8000 are matched, and it is not difficult to find the difference in the processing of music profiles when comparing SRM-700s. The former contour line is more softer, and the latter tends to clear the line of music.
Descriptive records for subjective evaluation (based on listening records):
1. The connection between the sentence of the sentence is very smooth – every note after each note, you know how to connect it, just don’t know how to connect, this and the big Olympics Some treatments are some similar, sounds extremely natural, smooth, but they do have very special dyeing.
2. SR-009BK is more romantic from the engineer, while SR-X9000 is more inspirating the artist. It is definitely impossible to have the value of the SR-009 series in the SR-X9000. The latter’s straight-white voice is also a reason for some people. Of course, the progress of SR-X9000 is undoubtedly very huge, accurate and beautiful, and it can even compare with the Great Austria with the overall and connection of the sound.
3. No matter how I said that I like SRM-T8000. At first glance, I’ve listened to the big and well-smashed, but the details of the SR-X9000 were very good, but not enough, the sound was a bit old, toned Always slow half a shot, a little bit of time, the first half of the song has always been very flat, don’t know how the feelings suddenly emerge, people are slightly dry. Instead, SRM-700S + pre-first level is more coherent, and the lines are also stronger.
4. The audio-separation of the SR-009BK is relatively large. The expression of music emotions does not have SR-X9000. So good. Direct AB will find that the music level is not so rich, the connection of the phrase can also feel some of the pain. But the SRM-700S driven SR-009BK voices without SRM-T8000 drove SR-X9000 so dry.
5. A commonality: I really want to open the volume, it is great, this is also an important sign of the Stax Ω series. I chose the reason for the directure SR-X9000 because this sound is easy to infect to the audience, when the engineer knows that there is aesthetics, art and romance, simply do not resist. There is no doubt that this is an epoch-making product!
This is not to say that SRM-700S or SRM-T8000 must be the only match of SR-X9000, regardless of how the foreigns or front end changes, this is only a preliminary, at least, at least we You can learn more about the basic properties of Stax SR-X9000 through double amplifier / pre-stage configuration.
If you must ask the direction, then from emotion and impression, I still have the first choice for T2, but there is no chance to verify this point, I hope that one day can I hear T2, I heard SR- on T2 X9000’s voice. Because the time is limited, plus the static system does require a long cycle to slowly comb, the above is only some of the impressions, the last 10 years of the SR-009 series system construction and adjustment, I have accumulated a little less experience This will also guide me in the next ten years, the adjustment and upgrading of the next round of system is based on SR-X9000, which will also become an important source and motivation of the fun of me to continue the headset. I hope to be with you. Explore this part of the unknown wonderful!
Finally, I ended with Ye Jia Taro Another Sky.
Every time I go to Japan, I will try my best to take the flight, because the weekly soft service, the last song is also impressive, and the whole day is this beautiful, mechanical aircraft and artistic inspirational service combination together Magic appeal, comprehensive, pursuit is a comprehensive experience based on art, products and services.
Thanks to the strong support of Stroller and Stax China, the STAX Zhongtian President, Mr. Suzuki, a comprehensive and patient solution of the designer. Looking forward to the epidemic, you can meet again and bring you more concern.
