I got shipping notice for my 009s, which will be here before Christmas, so it will be a great long weekend.

 

Thanks and Merry X-mass to you too. Should be fun next week. The darn thing is so honest you better have some good source.

AudioNoteKits DAC 4.1 and VPI Scout 1.1 with K&K Audio Maxxed Phono Amp with silver step up transformers. I hope that does it.

I have an Auralic Aries to open at Christmas to feed the DAC.

I'm also mid way through constructing a DDAC 4 deck with Sowter OPTs.

I've occasionally used my iPod with my BHSE driving my 009's, and obviously the SQ isn't as good as with my main source, but I found the SQ from using my iPod was still very good.
I did have to turn the BHSE's volume up though ( around 3 o'clock ) compared to when I use my main source. ( between 10 and 11 o'clock, depending on what song I'm listening to )

Nice. Good selection.

Doesn't that just mean that the K-01 has more gain than the iPod?  The volume control on the BHSE is a gain control, not a "power control", per se.  Or do you mean that the mean volume with an iPod really must be louder to get the same quality of listening experience?
