No.. I heard is it supposed to me more musical- similar to the ES-1- but is it as musical and as powerful?

I've tried the Genalex Gold Lion KT77s in my BHSE and they work fine. You'll need to adjust bias for the KT77s though as they run at a higher spec. I found the KT77s to add more lower mid-range and mid-bass (compared to the stock Mullard EL34s), which may work nicely for brighter-sounding headphones. I like them with the SR-404LE for example.

Has anyone recently received shipment of their BHSE amp? I am wondering where production of the first 20 units stands.

Has anyone heard alternatives, such as the Ray Samuels A-10?

Best person to ask would be Justin.

Is BHSE twice as good as KGSS ?
post #96 of 6178
The BH circuit is a further refinement over the KGSS so better but how you would quantify "twice as good" is beyond me.
post #97 of 6178
In terms of sound quality, such as treble, bass and vocal, is BHSE better than KGSS ?
post #98 of 6178
Yes. Think of it this way, the KGSS is a damn fine amp and better then nearly every electrostatic amp design out there. The only exception being the BH/T2 (which are very similar).

What do you think of the designs of this German site ? I know the design does not say everything, the execution and used parts also are very important, but I am curious how you (or dr. Gilmore) would judge these designs.

Missed this somehow. Those are fine budget amps but that was to be expected since they are mostly just carbon copies of what Stax was doing 25 years ago.

I hope I am not being a pest here, but, could anyone on the list for the first run of BHSE report when they received their amp and their placement on the list? The response I have been getting from Justin is "soon," but we seem to have different meanings to that word.

I just want to have some idea where the production has reached at this time.

I am supposedly 10 on the list. I fully paid in early November. In mid-December I was told "finish this week." As of last week I was back to "soon" along with "hiring help."

You are not being a pest. I think you and I agree on the definition of soon, but apparently the fellow that counts does not.

Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
post #105 of 6178
Same history here, I paid fully in late October, Justin told in mid December that it should ship "very soon".

It would be very appropriate if Justin made a status report and an explanation for the delays would not be wrong. I doubt this will happen but some of his defenders may pop up with information.
