As a former owner of upgraded GES I think you will get quite a WOW effect with new amp... It's not that GES is bad amp, it's just SR-009 and SR-Omega (from what I read in the net they are may be the best headphone in the world ever existed or at least in top 3: SR-009, HE-90, SR-Omega) deserve better (best) amp (not to mention GES don't have a power to drive SR-007 properly), from my experience with electrostatic headphones, amp is far more important than all other things in the rig (mostly meaning DAC of course)... As for the reason I think that: I have a chance to compare my Linn Akurate DS/0/D with Berkeley Alpha DAC Series 2 on a rig of my friend, he have SR-009 and HeadAmp KGSS amp, so Berkeley was obvious superior to my Linn, just different class... but when I got home and listened my rig with upgraded WooAudio WES (with Linn Akurate as source of course, and on my SR-009) I was blown away with sound, really much better sound than on rig of my friend... also I changed tubes on my WES some time after that listening session, and I again have a listening session at my friend place (now whithout my Akurate), that time I didn't like the sound of SR-009 at all, I really have much better sound at home, it's almost like I have different headphones at home that are diferent class compared to SR-009 of my friend.....

So IMHO with SR-009 it's better to have BHSE/WES/... kind of amp and source on a level of 300$ DAC, than to have GES/KGSS/... kind of amp and source on level of 5000$... but of course the best way is to have DAC and amp the highest level possible, the top electrostatic headphones deserve that wink.gif

The Amadeus actually comes with a cardboard dustcover which is more than 'hifi' tables include.

Girlfriend thought it was German, considering the word 'Leben'.

Initial impression is that it is an improvement on my Bifrost. It seems to convey a little more space and weight. My main reason for the upgrade was some incoming TH-900, as I will use the Lyr for my LCD-3, and the built in TEAC headphone amp for the TH-900. Also. some files that my Bifrost had issues with play flawlessly on the TEAC, so that's an added bonus!

I don't know if everyone would consider Rega's offerings "high end", but my RP6 came with a dustcover. I've seen fancier, but it's not too bad considering most don't come with one.

Home office workstation setup. I do more work at home than in my real office, so nice to have some audio distractions:






Little Dot I+, Objective 2, ODAC, Niles AXP-1 switcher, Ascend Acoustics CBM-170 SE speakers powered by HK 3390 (not pictured)

Rega is pretty much the exception to the rule. Most of the manufactuers out there don't include them. That's why there's so many companies that make them for $250 a pop. Hell the Kuzma Stabi has a custom dust cover available that's $375. No way I'm paying that!

I hate to admit it, but that's one of the reasons I went w/Rega. I'd rather put that $375 towards a cartridge and throw a dust cloth over everything when I'm not using it.

Just a little advice for you turntable guys worrying about dust. If you exfoliate your whole body twice a day you can remove all of the dead skin cells and free your home from dust. Dust is basically 98% dead skin. You will also have to be naked all of the time as the other 2% comes from clothing. 

 

small price to pay for a pristine turntable If you ask me! ;)

That's exactly right. Just toss a cloth on it and be done.

Remove dead skin cells and be naked all day whilst keeping your turntable dust free? Sounds like a win win situation to me!

I thought you guys were audiophiles?? I just wear a dust suit at all times when I'm home. I've also ripped out all my carpet, which is fine because the bare cement floors help with cooling.
