upgraded picture hopefully later today. with updated Le Creuset cookware


There is no way to fake the 2sk216, 2sj79 or 2sa1486 parts.
If they are fake they don't last more than a few seconds.
Everything else is current production.

French fries are belgian, BTW.

Imagine whether Kevin have had inspiration in Brussels, we would be craving for Belgian Fries Special Edition :ph34r:

Stainless steel knob. Great for baking breads in the oven without melting the knob. :bigsmile_face:

This pic should adorn the wall of every true headphone audiophile's listening room.

Others may desire to use it to adorn their dart boards.

I can just imagine telling my friends, "this is the guy who designed my headphone amp".  What would your children say?

 

Still . . . one can see a lucidity of genius in his eyes reflecting the highly evolved soul within . . .

 Well the way I would look at it, that this is the Michelin *** gourmet chef of headphone amps! :smile:

Since using PH tubes with my BHSE in which I'm using to drive my 009's, my LCD-XC / GS-Xmk2 are getting very little use, in fact the only time I was using them was while I waited for my BHSE to warm up.

I say was because I'm in the process of selling the LCD-XC and GS-X to which I've got a buyer.

Because I'm now enjoying listening to my 009's so much, if I decided to get another amp it would be a SS stats amp, to which Justin is the only one I'd want to build one for me.

 Justin might eventually start building SS stats amps again,but assuming he doesn't, then I'll just stick with what I've got, which does [ IMO ] sound utterly amazing anyway.

 

P.S. What I'm now doing while waiting for my BHSE to warm up, is connecting my Pico Slim to my K-01 and using either my HD-600's or UM Miracle CIEM's.

Although [ IMO ] the Pico Slim doesn't sound as good as the GS-Xmk2, when used with the K-01 it still make my HD-600's and UM Miracles sound very good.

Absolutely nothing to do with master chef or any other television program, the Michelin guides have started in 1907 !!

Never heard of the creek ob1 ?/"^*! and I can assure I have lived with the best of them :beerchug: perhaps too much judging by my waistline.
