Default stasis 2 and 3 schematics

This series is no longer called Bag O Fun. This is
my sister's joke, and it's only good for about a week.


Here is the schematic for the Threshold Stasis 2
and 3. This was a very old photocopy, and I had
to spend some time trying to clean it up, but it
is now readable enough.

You might think that I have copies of all the Threshold
stuff, but actually I don't. Most of what I have comes
from guys like Jam.

Thanks, Jam

..... A silly question to ask...., perhaps asked by many
before, but since I'm new here..... Inquiry minds want to know..

What is the driving motivation for Nelson Pass to
start a diy website and/or to share "commercial" circuit designs/schematics with the public ? hehe

This place seems like a gold mine for the electronics
hobbiest..... Sensory overload.....

My take (from the desk across the room) is that Nelson does this cause he thinks it's fun stuff.

Question Pa-7 Nakamichi

I own a Nakamichi PA-7 (or PA-70, depending on where you plug-it-in) using Stasis technology. Where does this amp fit into the evolution of Stasis and Threshold? Was this amp partially compliant to the NP design with constraints placed by Nak., or another version of the developing architecture.

Nakamichi licensed the patent and trade name. The
product they produced was compliant with the Stasis
design, but obviously rendered with Japanese parts
and construction.

Smile History of Stasis-documented somewhere?

Thank you for the reply, Mr. Pass.

I've searched the Internet and inquired with some of my tech-head friends for history on the Stasis topology, but found nothing to explain the development of the architecture, let alone in terms I, a lay person, might understand. Is there a lineage of succession in Threshold products that inludes Nak products? Or, were they produced only to employ contemporary Stasis functionality without the R&D present in the Threshold progressive designs? Was there a Threshold product similar to this one, the PA-7 (1986)? Was the PA-7 thus a clone of sorts?

Wish I was home listening...
