It is quite shocking that almost nothing can be salvaged from these amps but once fully rebuilt they do sound awesome.

I don't want to speak on anyone else's behalf but I'm guessing he likes it sounds ~fabulous~ once it's properly built.
I've never heard a BHSE, but I just finished up my own variation on the ES-X and t's a huge step up from the SRD-7 and SRM-1 mk2. I also got to try it with the SR-007, and the SRM-1 mk2 didn't stand a chance against it. Spritzer kindly sent me a schematic for a version with current sources on the output, which I built. I've since added current sources to the input as well- not a huge difference as far as I can hear. Mine's with 12AT7 like the original SR-X, and EL34s on the output.
I'd definitely encourage people to try it as a DIY project. It's fairly inexpensive and simple to build (no hard to source parts!), and I'd be surprised if any of the first party amps sounded as good.post #155 of 1579/23/13 at 7:06amThread Starterpost #156 of 1579/23/13 at 11:01amThat would make a killer office setup! How small can you get the power supply? I got the 2u chassis just to fit the transformer and cap bank, but I'm guessing it'll be tiiiny and run way cooler if you forgo the ccs and EL34s.post #157 of 1579/26/13 at 7:32amThread Starter
It all fits in a 2U/400mm chassis. I need to replace the PSU as this one is giving me issues. It's a bad design but I've had it sitting on a shelf for a few years so I thought I might give it a shot.
