I wasn't impressed with SRD-7 MK2 + speaker amps driving the Omega II compared to my T1S (loss of detail and soundstage) so I would rather get a 717 (or maybe a T1 if money is tight).

Transformers aren't for everyone but a properly built high end unit driven by a very good amp should give the dedicated amps some competition. It's not going to be cheap though since good transformers cost 400-600$ each and then there is the bias supply (the stock one in the SRD-7's isn't really suitable for the Omega lineup), chassis and all the hardware needed (connectors, wire and switches).
Ok, so I still haven't given up on this yet. Is there a design out there for an adapter that would be "The Deal" for the OII?
I would like to do this:
A-GD REF 1 DAC >> CAST >> A-GD Phoenix >> Threshold SA-3(50 Watts Class A) >> "Interface Box" >> SR-007 OII
Anybody know of an Adapter scheme to pull this off well?
Possibly this one: the STAX Transformer
Or check out this thread for other ideas: http://www.head-fi.org/forums/f6/diy...-trans-363005/
I am also on the lookout for a transformer "worthy" the O2, but there are not all that much info out there.
