Not for me. My Foster is dead silent with all my IEMs including the SE535. I use the low-gain setting and tend to listen at low volumes. 
Have you told your wife the bad news? :-)
I received my 009s a few days before Christmas. I am using an Auralic Vega DAC and a modded Stax 727ii amp. I could not be happier! Maybe I'll get a tube amp in the future, but it feels like a very low priority right now. I feel so lucky to have this setup. Truly wonderful.
That is a shame. I bought mine direct. When my M-10 had issues, I had to send it to HK on my dime, but I got a new unit in return.
 I was making a joke, but I was under the impression that if you don't defend a patent you can lose it. Maybe I'm confusing that with trade marks.

 Well, I did ask for opinions, so I think him for sharing his original comments even though I did not find his arguments  convincing.

I gather that the KGSShv costs quite a bit more. So, I could have had a KGSS for only a little more than the retail price of an unmodded 727ii, but NOT a KGSShv. Plus, I would have had to wait for the KGSS to be built and would not have a traditional warranty. Additionally,...
