Seems like a good time for me to cool my Violectric jets  -- and wait for anything new that is coming down the pike.
    Yeah, if that's what you were going for I need to withdraw the "schitty idea" comment.  I am all about transparency with Stax and full size speakers systems, but there is no reason not to shoot for a different flavor.  
   
    That doesn't say much for the transparency, or lack thereof, of the WEE.  Your Cary is a nice, *sweet* sounding little integated amp whether in triode or ultra-ilnear modes  -- but a long ,long way from being anywhere near transparent.  So no surprise in the sameness to your ears.  Don't get me wrong, KT88's are among my favorite tubes. And I am certainly not saying your SLI-80 is a limp dick amp.   But even pairing SR-007's plus adapter with big balls amps --...

This is great to hear.  Nice that they are sending you a free pair of phones for doing the right thing -- but you had already done the right thing for the right reason, not for reward.  Maybe there is hope...
Your friend is lucky to have a personal assistant.  That interweb thing hasn't made it to Buffalo yet?   On a serious note, I have been planning to sell my pair of M50 (straight cord) but haven't gotten around to it yet, so shoot me a PM with a reasonable offer if you are interested.  Mint condition, original box -- no disappointment.
