The stereo corrector

Sound stage activator for unbalanced 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.

Feature

TakeT-SA is for exclusive unbalance type amplifier. It mixes the signals of L / R channels by
connecting both output + terminals of amplifier with trace amount.
There is an immediate and pleasing change in the soundstage presentation, and this can be audibly adjusted by rotating the control knob.
It can manage STEREO sound field, MONO sound field or OFF with the front nob.

Unbalance SA for normal hifi system( using an unbalanced amplifier)
In case of Bi-wiring system, it needs One TakeT-SA Unbalance.
In case of Bi-amping(L/R separated amps) system, it needs One SA balance.
In case of separated Balanced amps by frequency range, it needs SA balance per each amps.
In case of separated Unbalanced amps by frequency range, it needs SA unbalance per each amps.

Structure

Rigid aluminum chassis with ABS resin front/rear panels. Gold plated terminals

It connects to plus-side speaker terminal of an amplifier. No distinction for L or R terminal.

Spec
Impedance Range OFF: Normal stereo 1~12: 1.2M ohms 12: 200kohms(MONO, *it is not completely Monaural out)
Dimensions W69mm x L87mm x H38mm(terminals and switch are included)
Weight 90g
The Taket Soundstage Activator counters crosstalk effects for loudspeaker listening, and for all sources as the effect is added at the amplifier output, but using a rather different engineering principle that has been developed through a range of enhancement products by Taket themselves. Drawing on previous product experience, and through experimentation, the Soundstage Activator is a passive variable delayless micro-crossfeeder.

Adjustable micro-mixing blends a tiny (millionth part, hence ‘micro’) signal from each channel signal into the other channel. At the extreme, a pseudo-mono effect is produced. Such a small amount of signal mixing is effective in overcoming the loudspeaker ‘blurring’ problem to some degree. The Taket Soundstage Activator is designed to accomplish an enhanced sound quality by mitigating the artificiality of the ‘two-sound-sources’ effect. This, it is claimed, tightens and deepens bass, enhances midrange three-dimensionality, and sweetens the treble range, producing overall a more natural sound that the human brain can better understand than the contrived two separate channel point sources. Taket is known for piezoelectric supertweeters, and like them this device is simply connected across the amplifier outputs and adjusted for personal taste. The effect at any given setting will vary among recordings according to how instruments are positioned in the mix across the two channels, so adjustment of the device setting will produce a different audio image.
Various software tools have been developed with similar effect, for example in the Digital Signal Processing options of JRiver Media Center, although these are only applicable for playing digital files, whereas the Taket Soundstage Activator acts on all output from the amplifier to which it is connected.
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’.
