I cant see a price on the Hex. It looks pretty interesting though.   How much is it?   Regards Macrog
I'm keen. I can bring a couple of pairs of balanced HD800s, balanced AKG702s, A couple of A-g Reference 7.1 DACs, A Reference 7HE DAC and a NFB7.1 DAC and Amps. My Stax SR009s should be here shortly.   Auckland would suit me well. I'm in the Waikato so not too long a drive.   Regards   Macrog
Try each amp on a few tracks you know really well and see which one you prefer, I see the minimum recommended amplifier wattage is 5 watts so just go with the one that sounds best would be my recommendation.   Regards   Macrog
In my opinion Audio-gd gear sounds much better with space between components on separate shelves. I try to position gear so that transformers are as far away from each other as possible. Regards Andrew
I am looking for an interim amplifier to run my Stax SR-009s that I just ordered.   I haven't decided what to go for in the longer term. I am thinking about a BHSE or Cavalli Liquid Lightening but either would involve a bit of a wait.   I would consider a Stax 717 / 727 or anything else suitable to run the Stax Sr009s.

I think most of us rip CDs to PC mainly for convenience. I have about 27 thousand tracks ripped losslessly to my NAS and just finding the CDs has always been a problem. I find I listen to far more of my music from computer than CD. I often hear tracks I forgot I even had with computer set to shuffle tracks. When I listened to CD I tended to play a much smaller range of music.   Some of the usb to coaxial digital converters outperform even the CD7 as a source now. I...
Master 5 sounds subtly better on easy to drive headphones.   Regards   Macrog      
In my experience the HD800s are not a good match on the NFB10. The HD800s sound unpleasantly bright, thin in the midrange and bass light when under amped. I however havent tried the NFB10SE only the NFB10WM and NFB10ES neither were to my liking on the HD800s.   Regards   Macrog
I believe that a Phoenix or Master 5/6 would be overkill if you are running an Asus ST soundcard as source.   Regards   Macrog
