 It's been awhile since I heard the 507 or 009 (both on normal Stax amps), but I seem to recall fairly significant differences in sound stage. What music/files are you listening to? If you can't appreciate the difference I'm sure your wallet would be happy (and thankful!) :)
 I'm starting to get it wink (no pun intended )  I won't block him... I just won't respond... I'll just have to trust myself with that 
Ok I don't intend to get into a discussion with someone who isn't listening.   So far, you've just proven everything that I've said. You're doing things zealously and with a DMM and a microphone (have you seen the stuff arnaud models with a simulated head/listening test environment?). Really? Worse, the graphs which show how things perform are created by KG. For someone who loves to measure, you're also not even consistent with what you're doing.   So what are you...
 I guess you don't get the point I was trying to make on pro bono. Anyways I've said my piece. Carry on doing what you want to do. In terms of measurements... for amplifiers it's mainly to do with a scope... or something that lets you chart out freq response effectively. I don't think I've seen either of those from you. There's nothing wrong with not owning them (I can't afford to keep those handy), but I don't go round saying I've measured performance with my DMM...
 Well... look at it this way. If you think something is good you want it to do well. What do you think is happening with the way you're approaching this now? Don't you see that you're potentially harming RKV more than you're helping it? You're basically yelling at a group of folks who have owned Stax gear for so long and have gone through all the amplifier upgrades available (and KG has designed so many of them). You come yelling without any measurements but your ears and...
I think why everyone is tiring is because you're continually pushing RKV stuff... It's like you're working for them?
Lots of funny stuff in just the last few posts. Funny how everyone trying to correct everyone isn't really clear themselves or understand sarcasm...
 I agree... you described them really well but just thought I made that distinction clearer in the context of the question "offboard vs onboard" that's all :) There are also newer variants of the KGSSHV design - KG and Spritzer have been continually working on this to keep sourcing of parts easy and reducing footprint. The Stax community should be thankful to have such dedicated folks that allow for more of us to experience well-amped headphones.
 Thanks for the quick reply darin - your contribution to this thread cannot be understated. I'll try to find some time to test this out this coming weekend, too.
