Great amplifier that I remember.stax was very serious with all there power and pre amps When they used to make them.No problem tubes Stax1t is with tube output, you need 3 power cords, one for digital, left output stage , right output stage.
if you have a better dac for cd, congratulations i haven't found one yet.

Or a Manley reference dac can be used as preamp too, both a world class
