The stereo corrector

Sound stage activator for balanced terminal

Description
TakeT-SA is unique designed for improve phase lag of between L/R speakers from an amplifier.
The treble range becomes comfortable sharpness, dimensionally, reality mid and stronger bass impact.
The presence of grain in the sound or muddy feeling disappear, lively sound field out there.
It works not only stereo sound, but also multi-channel reproduction is very affective.
The combination of TakeT super tweeter and hi-definitioner are more effective and impressive.

TakeT explained the problem they have solved with this small device – a problem in the way the brain reacts to a stereo sound presentation, and which is inherent in the stereo playback system we take for granted as the normal way to hear recorded music. The Taket SA is designed to be a simple, effective and affordable solution. It is clearly evident and very enjoyable.

Review
On first switching the control knob from the off position and rotating to the suggested position 3 on the 1 (stereo = L, R) to 12 (‘mono’ = L+R, R+L) scale, the effect was noticeable but quite subtle. However, on prolonged listening, I clearly heard a stereo image with instruments and voices well discerned. And there was more. Whatever it was doing, I immediately liked what I was hearing. Yes, surely, the image was opened up somewhat and there was additional ‘life’ in the music. The ‘stereo corrector’, as I am calling it, adds weight and additional micro-dynamic resolution, making the playback more engaging. Just as I have experienced with the Taket BATPure supertweeter, the effect is in finessing the way the music makes sense, rather than in tonal colouring, as say with a tone control or equaliser. The sound is just more meaningful as a musical experience. By that I mean it sounds more like instruments and voices and less like a stereo recording. The presence is uplifted and the soundstage presentation is more open and coherent. Indeed, the soundstaging is ‘activated’.
