Another way to say dull is less precise and softer, is that ok with you guys?  This is what I heard from the LL, agree with n3rdling.  Now this can be a pleasant dullness and some people prefer that.  Fine.  Myself, I prefer to hear it all from the amp and use another source if I want another flavor.  For the 009, I have what I would call a no holds barred amp, the DIY T2, and a duller one, a DIY Aristaeus type amp.  I like both, but if I had to choose one, it would...
Do you have the latest firmware installed, there are newer files that don't work with the older firmware?  Maybe a silly question.
This is exactly what I heard at the Los Angeles meet, same source (Oppo), but different rooms.  Meet was very quiet.  
I would also like to share a positive Stax experience.  I sent an email to Yama's on Saturday and they replied on Monday .  Further, they are sending a replacement part for my 009, which someone broke at the recent LA meet and did not say anything, at no charge.
I thought the Electra sounded very nice at the meet and I can see how people who listen to more modern or harder music would prefer this say over the BHSE which is more accurate.  There was a nice warmth with the 009.  This was with the stock Mullards.  Marv told me it really sounded great with better EL34s and I can see how it would.   If it were me, I would still choose the BHSE probably, but I am not in the market for an amp since I build my own these...
Glad to see you coming Ed & Peter.  I am going to do my best to make it.  Will most likely bring the Amarra source, HE90, 009, and the DIY HEV90.
  My opinion is exactly the opposite on these 2 phones.  I guess it comes down to the music we listen to.  My 007 Mk 1 has not been touched in ages.
  To be honest, that review, as has been said here before, got the tonality of what the BHSE sounds like exactly opposite of what I have heard when I heard one on several occasions in small quiet meets.  Hence, whatever that person says is rubbish to me.   The guy at 6Moons consistently touts headphone stuff that sounds terrible, shall we follow him.  There are many vocal people here who talk up amps and other stuff that sounds like a** to me, shall we follow them.  As I...
  If this and subsequent posts is you not caring, my goodness.......   I am sure the 009 sounds excellent on the LL, BHSE, and maybe even the WES.  I have heard them on my KGSSHV, DIY HEV90, and the DIY T2 and they sound great on all of them.  My mood, among other things, usually dictates which one I use.  I might use the T2 all the time if it didn't get so hot (:   Bottom line, this is about personal preference, not which is best reviewed.
Pretty sure this is Craig's first electrostatic amp and I am positive he would admit he is learning along the way.  He once said to me something to the effect that he would not choose EL34s for an electrostatic amp.  That's obviously changed.   Can't wait to hear it.
