So DAC -> SRM-1 -> WA6SE should work fine, correct? 

 

Yep

B22 is the best SS dynamic amp available (well, dynahi is probably a little better but it's close) and KGSSHV is the best electrostatic SS amp available.  Can't really say which amp is better unless you use the same headphone to compare both amps IMO, which is impossible for obvious reasons.  Can't go wrong with either.

Thanks fellas. Sadly with my son being sick and a whole lot of Lego Star Wars/Batman...then a funeral viewing for my mom's cousin and finally kitchen shopping (we're remodelling soon) and then getting the kids to bed...I just got to really listen as of 9pm tonight (currently only 9:40pm). But so far, no complaints. Great depth and heft to the bass and the best "quality" bass I've heard, imaging isn't as wide as the HD800s, but likely the next best I've heard. Shimmer detail on cymbals is the best I've heard. More to come....but so far I am one happy camper!

First off, I want to thank Justin at HeadAmp for the great customer service shipping these out so quickly and great communication along the way!

 

Initial impressions are very positive! L3000.gif More to come later tonight (sadly much later).

 

Here are some photos.

This is my little guy. If you want to know what I looked like at 4, then now you know. smile.gif

Congratulations Peter! Your set SR-009/727II combo looks just like mine. I am sure you will love them and will spend most of your headtime with them.

Thanks Jose. Really loving what I'm hearing so far. On to Patricia Barber's Companion (Gold CD) and loving it. It's like I'm right there in the jazz club.

Luckiest kid alive...I certainly didn't get to listen to $5,000 headphones when I was his age, or even get to use $5,000 computers or anything else particularly valuable.

 

He probably won't realize just what he's listening to until several years later, though...

He couldn't care less...just wanted to play more Lego Batman on the Wii. LoL.

Listen to something with great sounding drums. It's what blew me away. I know you well enough to know you probably have a favorite master of Hey Jude. Listen to it. It's the thing that blew me away. The drums sound amazing.

I do that too and no harm can come to the Stax when plugging in at normal volume levels.  The dynamic need to lower the volume comes from the craptastic TRS plug which shorts to ground which for something like the B22 is very, very, very bad...

Someone killed Asr's B22 at a meet once, and it's suspected that's what happened.

Is there actually anyone on this planet who prefers the SR-007 MK II to the previous SR-007s? It just puzzles me that Stax actually downgraded their best phones sonically and doing pretty much doing nothing about it.

Use the search function.  There are plenty of people who have previously posted who like the MK2 more than the MK1.  Have you actually listened to both headphones?
