(My very first post.) This is interesting since I would love to experience the true potential of my newly acquired 009. Unfortunately these will probably be out of my reach for now as well. I finally part of the club and found my way here (you guys are stuck with me now, lol). And thanks to some of you that personally congratulated me on my purchase, even though the amp I have started out with is only the 323S but I have been listening to these almost every day since receiving them and I am really enjoying them. I almost worked out a deal on a KGSSHV but it fell through at the very very end, which only makes settling for the 323S for the time being THAT much harder (even though I am still happy with it).
