It all boils down to if someone wants an amp done quick, or done to perfection, which IMO the BHSE is.

Then you should probably buy a different amp.

Phil, why don't you just take your name off the list and move on? Seriously? This journey has been way much too stressful for you. It is time to give yourself a break and enjoy music, in whichever way you can! There will be, and there are may other amps you may want to use instead of the BHSE. ;)

Would have to second this although I'm a Chinese...embarrassedly

My apologies Phil if I was unclear. I was using a contracted form of the phrase "are you being serious?". I honestly did not know if you were joking with your statement as I found it difficult to take seriously.

This is really the point, isn't it.  Anyone who has attempted DIY at anything approaching this level finds that sourcing the parts is by far the biggest problem and the major source of frustration.

I too, have passed my order anniversary but I console myself that there is very little, if anything out there except DIY of the Stax esoterica that comes close to the perfection of a BHSE.  With a personal flavour of Stax earphone & perhaps tubes, this is going to be as good as it gets for me.  I don't want a nearly BHSE with second hand or wider tolerance parts.  12 months, 18 months, whatever it takes.  Most people here know that the BHSE could, perhaps should, be much more expensive.  Relax, let the BH meister weave his magic & think about the pain of commisioning or building a BHSE or anything equivalent.  I look at it as sub-contracting my frustration whilst I just listen to music.

Agree and this is coming from someone with a pair of sealed 009s sitting in a closet waiting to be used.

Better to test them and burn-in in warranty period.

there where some 009 with imbalanceproblems delivered.

I had one of them.

Yeah, I'd like to just don't have a stat amp.

Not discontent, just impatient.

I was quite serious! As time goes by, things often change faster than we could imagine -this is true especially for technology.

Audio amplifiers evolve.. slowly.

Phil95 would like to change his BHSE order, please make it in pink, because he's a big girls blouse.

My color choice was blue, but this is not an important matter: pink, if it exists, is acceptable too.

If it helps, the BHSE design has been around for 3-4 years already - probably longer. Stax designs, even longer.
