@ arnaud, While I'm very impressed with how the PH tubes with the BHSE make the 009's sound, the downside with those tubes is their lifetime, I did however end up getting a second quad before the first quad packed up which was after around a year. I'm using that second quad now but have some original Mullard xf4's, so when that second quad of PH's pack up I'll start using those xf4's which I prefer more than the PH's. Others might know if any voltmeter can be used, but...
Arnaud has the Psvane PH's with his BHSE not the stock Mullard's, so it would be interesting to read his thoughts on how the 007mk1's sound from using the PH's.I've only heard the mk1's with my BHSE while using the stock Mullard's and was very impressed, but when using the PH's I got to hear the 007mk2's and was very disappointed.
 After selling the GS-Xmk2, I was using my Pico Slim when wanting to listen to my HD-600's, however I've had a new audio rack made and there was a space on one of the shelves I felt needed filling.While looking on Birgir's website I came across a dynamic headphone amp he was selling in his used gear section, so I decided to get it.I find that amp not only fits in that space perfectly, but also drives my HD-600's extremely well, [ I have a custom cable for the 600's which I...
I got my BHSE after 15 months wait, but my guess is it might've been 12 months if I'd had the remaining payment in February 2012, also when I ordered the GS-Xmk2 I waited around 6 months receiving it. I no longer have the GS-Xmk2, I sold it when I started using the PH tubes with my BHSE, and I find the Mullard xf4's I have are even better than the PH's. While driving the 009's, the stock Mullard tubes ( IMO ) don't do the BHSE justice, with the PH's and more so the...
@  customcoco,   I ended up ordering the BHSE twice, the first time was 2010, and the second was March 2011, to which both times I paid the quarter deposit.   I had to cancel the 2010 order for financial reasons, and even though I ordered again in 2011, I knew I wouldn't have the remaining payment for sometime, so when Justin sent me an email for the remaining payment which if I recall correctly was February 2012, I replied saying I wouldn't have the final payment for...
  The two photo's are obviously of the amp section of my BHSE, and on the tubes which are the Psvane EL34PH's are the Herbie HAL-O III-30 tube dampers. I'm going to be using those PH tubes until they pack up, then once that happens I'll be using the Mullard xf4's and never again those stock Mullard's and SED's I still have.   P.S. Congrats arnaud in receiving your BHSE.
Today the four Herbie HAL-O III 30 tube dampers for use with the tubes on my BHSE were delivered.   I've used them with the Mullard xf4's but before I mention whether I've found an improvement in SQ, I have to say before ordering them I was rather sceptical because I have some silicon ring tube dampers and found no improvement while using those [ which I no longer do ], however these Herbie's are something different.   I didn't think the SQ from my 009's using the...
aesthetic's ?
I had the LCD-XC which cost $1795, and I did get a custom cable for that headphone ( I've since sold that XC ), but there's noway I'd get a custom cable for a $5500 headphone, simply because IMO it should already have the best cable JPS Labs do. Anyway, I thought some believe the Abyss to be the best sounding headphone ever made, to those who believe that then what's a custom cable needed for.
Why does a $5500 headphone need a custom cable ? especially seeing how JPS Labs specialise in cables. Yes I have a custom cable for my HD-600, but when I got that headphone it cost me around £250.
