It's possible to anodise some other metals than aluminium, but I don't think HeadAmp offers any others.

I suggested iridium, but got no feedback.

Go to your local head fi meet.  It will most likely be one there to demo - That's if you live in the US..

 

I don't think Brad Pitt can make the build time go any faster.  Who is he again? :biggrin:

I have the 009 / BHSE and live in the UK, I'm from West Yorkshire so if you can get to my place you're welcome to have a listen, you could phone me to have a listen, but I can't see how doing that is going to give you the same musical sensation.

Hi Hifi Nutter ( I like your username ) ,

Paul ( Scruffy 7974 ) visited me today to listen to my 009 / BHSE in which he brought his SR-007mk2, I believe when he has the time, he's going to write a post with his thoughts. We both had the same thoughts on both headphones driven by the BHSE but it'll be best to wait and read his thoughts.
He also heard my LCD-XC / GS-Xmk2 and also had a similar thought as me with that combo compared to the 009 / BHSE .

I've got the chord Hugo and was thinking of getting the lcd x so both your thoughts would be very interesting even though yours are the closed version,also i owned the stax sr 007 and their matching top of the range valve amp,I was hugely disappointed,went from my wadia 861 se direct then went from my classe ssp 800 with the stax volume pot on full so basically using my classe as the pre amp,even though two volume controls in the audio path it sounded better but still didn't blow Me away,I sold it and got the grado ps 1000 with Graham slee diamond linear ultra and that didn't blow Me away either then sold that,didn't lose anything on the stax but lost a little on the grado headphones which I think are overrated,now I've got a pair of sennheiser ie 800 IEM s and they blow Me away through my iPhone 5 s and Hugo,now to me that doesn't make any sense but my ears beg to differ,now with the sr 007 stax im sure they just weren't driven properly so I've probably sold one of the best headphones in the world just because I didn't have a blue Hawaii to drive them,gutted! So where do I go from here,the stax route again and blue Hawaii or audeze lcd x with my Hugo which I love? Feel like my wadia and classe is too good for my amp and speakers as I down graded because I couldn't get parts for my jmlab utopia first generation and I wanted surround sound as I love movies,for high quality hifi im sticking to headphone listening now as it's far cheaper with top sound

I don't want this thread going off on tangents here, but I just have to note to hifinutter that imho those original Jmlab Utopias always stand out in my mind as the best thing Focal has ever made and maybe qualify as

an all-time classic speaker.

So if you owned these, I think you know what great sound is like.

I'm sorry never owned them. (I also love my SR009s for what they are even with a humble Stax amp and nothing resolves thinks like those headphones do, even speakers....).

Expanded into an additional 700-800sqft today, same building, but lower level (have to walk outside and go around/down). Not sure what i'll do with it long-term but currently it's going to be the storage room for the BHSE packaging material and packaging area for that amp.

 

(This was a lot easier when I just sold Pico portables and they fit on 1 bookshelf)

 

 

Those stacks of aluminum on the floor are blanks for BHSE Amp/Power Supply front panels, which I may or may not use.

Justin,
Im sure I speak for everyone when I say your an absolute genius in what you do and well respected,I seen a program the other day in the UK how Amazon...started off in a garage and then expanded as we all know to massive warehouses all over the world,now I know specialist hifi doesn't sell in massive numbers but excuse my ignorance as im New here but what is stopping you expanding? as it seems demand out weighs supply,is it just parts that are in small supply? surely modern technology i thought companies make new chips transistors valves etc,surely their is money in it for them

Ive had one of their heavy full zip hoodies for like 5 months now and i love that thing, it really is hard to wear other hoodies now...Highly recommended to anyone that doesn't have one currently. I will say that its a bit stiff at first, gotta break it in wearing it and washing it a few times, but then its amazing
