 Not a good idea.  UPSs restrict current, which will reduce the dynamic range. I have my BHSE connected to a PS Audio P5 A/C regenerator.  You can connect a backup battery to that, but I don't think it's necessary as the P5 will provide surge and voltage fluctuation is not an issue.
My 2c on your setup - reduce your cord lengths! 25' and running the signal through switches is damaging the purity of the signal. Think of all the trouble Justin went through to select the best components.You wouldn't watch a 4K movie from 25' away, even though it would still look great.
No need to burn in and adjust bias. Justin does that before shipping.
THank you for this. But why no BHSE in the comparison?  This is the reigning 'champ' when paired with the SR-009… so it would have been important to include it.
Really? You really think extension cables don't degrade the sound quality because they are made by Stax?!Every time you increase the length and even more troubling, add another connection you are degrading the sound quality. Especially with an analog amplified signal.
Wouldn't do that -- you're degrading the sound and possibly negating the benefits of better cables upstream.
Don't understand the "painful price" comments at all. Priced a Woo Audio, Head Amp, Cavalli, or any other high end headphone amp for that matter?? $5-6K is the norm, and those amps don't have a built in DAC, or speaker amp. And there's no brand name there to speak of, vs a McIntosh. This amp is a downright bargain!!
I would think having a BHSE there is mandatory not optional. How can you do a proper shoutout without one?!
Justin, can you comment on how components have changed (eg, using one brand of cap vs another), over the build lots? Is this current lot using the same component brands that you used for the previous runs?
 So where is your review?!
