Default Threshold Stasis 2 imput impedence

I have a Threshold stasis 2 amp. I freaking love this unit. I am looking to integrate Vandersteen subs with my main speakers. For this they have a crossover that you put inbetween your preamp and amp. I need to know the input impedance of the stasis 2. I received 2 very different answers. First, Jon Soderberg said it is 15k... I have used him to rebuild in the past and trust him.. Second I emailed Threshold company they told me it was 75k. I have not worked directly with Threshold in decades. So I am leaning toward Jon being correct but decided to post here to try and get a third opinion.

Thanks in advance for your time.

Threshold Statis 2 Input imedance is 13-14 kOhm
To round it, we can say ~15k

I emailed Nelson to check again. Here is his response.

--The input impedance is 75K. There is a 4.75K resistor and then a 10K resistor,
but apparently Jon does not understand that the 10K has been bootstrapped to
a 70K value.--

I wanted to post this in case anyone else is searching for this information in the future.

Well done contacting Mr Pass.
Nelson Pass should know.
So it is bootstrapped to 75k input impedance.
