Description :
Threshold was founded in 1974 by audio designer Nelson Pass. Threshold products owned a stellar reputation for their robust champagne and silver cosmetics, and cutting-edge circuitry including the groundbreaking, patented Stasis circuit which produced a formidable combination of sound quality, power levels, and reliability. The Threshold Stasis-R 5.0 stereo control preamplifier is a classic example of the fine craftsmanship that has been the Threshold hallmark for decades. Housed in the traditional Threshold rugged chassis construction lies a truly balanced, fully remote controlled preamplifier, with gain stages based on the highly acclaimed T2. It comes with a custom machined aluminum infrared remote control. Ergonomically, the Threshold Stasis-R 5.0 is a pleasure to use. Volume, balance, source selection, mute and programming can be managed with either the front-panel controls or with the hand-held remote. The selected source and the volume level are displayed on an attractive, easy-to-read LCD blue-white screen that switches to display other functions when needed. The rotary digitally-controlled analog volume control allows levels to be adjusted in 0.1 dB increments over an 80dB range for precise, repeatable settings. The trigger output is 12V for on/off control of ancillary equipment (e.g. power amplifier, active subwoofer, etc).

The fully balanced from input to output in the Threshold Stasis R-5.0 provides an extremely high common-mode rejection and cancellation of most distortion artifacts. On the low-noise direct-coupled fully discrete solid state design, the power supply sections for left and right channels, and the independent power supplies for digital control circuitry are specially designed to reduce interference. Other premium components include military-grade precision resistors, computer-grade capacitors, military-grade glass-epoxy circuit boards and an oversized toroidal power transformer. The Stasis-R 5.0 provides two XLR and four RCA inputs, XLR and RCA outputs and one RCA record output. Uncommon ports include the RS-232C for software updates and future features, and two Threshold Data Link (T-LINK) ports for control and communication with other Threshold equipment.

Striking a delicate balance between art and technology, the Threshold Stasis R-5.0 is a stunning performer both in the lab, where it displays unsurpassed precision, and in the listening room, where it shows off its unparalleled transparency, detail, and depth of image. The Threshold Stasis R-5.0 is an exceptional product in technical terms, designed as a tool to meet the needs of the most demanding audio professional, but it is also, like the well-regarded historic Threshold preamps, one that possesses the magical ability to stir the heart of even the most jaded audiophile.
