Jon L Posted October 1, 2013 Report Share Posted October 1, 2013 I just bought the SR-009 which should be here soon. I have resisted buying them forever because I never really warmed up to its sound signature when I have listened to them, even via Blue Hawaii SE. Yes, I am a lover of single-ended triode (mostly 2A3 and 45) sound. I don't listen to stuff with lots of bass of dynamic jump, so these days I'm happy listening to my Stax O2 MkI, Senn HE-60 (woody), and HE Audio 'stat via Stax transformer with my 2A3 SET or EL84 sigle-ended pentode speaker amps. SR-009 should be easier to drive than O2, so that's good, but obviously, a dedicated 'stat amp will be needed at some point. Blue Hawaii SE, hopefully with some tube, cable rolling may be in the cards. Listened to Electra, and 009 sounded pretty good and musical, but obviously bass dynamics were not top-shelf. Then again, I could live with that. Dying to try T2 with SR-009. Others? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
