Perhaps, some additional comments from you still to come...

... I have absolutely NO idea what my '009' is going to sound like.

Will do, not much time today. Cleaning up after our 10 week kitchen renovation mostly. But so far I am very impressed!

 

I think you'll love the SR-009s! About 9 months in and they still never cease to amaze me.

When the Stax & WEE arrive mid-September, I may not have my audio rig put together yet. In this case, I'll likely just take 'em to the studio for a listen. Or drop by an LA area head-fier's and plug-in. 

 

I have all of my pieces but I'm still in between residences. And boxes... rolleyes.gif

Cool...keep us posted on what you think.

Swapping gear around a bit. I took my Goldpoint amp home, and brought my Millett Hybrid MiniMAX to work. (The glow from the LEDs make it kind of annoying at night in the bedroom, which is typically when I do a lot of listening.) I'm currently running a Grub cable DAC to the Millett, to my Denon AH-D5000 headphones. This is my desk rig, on my lab bench I have a Mini^3, with my iPod and Denon AH-D1001 headphones.

Beautiful! How much did it cost to build your Millet?

Thanks. I got the kit from Beezar.com, current price is $230. Nice little amp, pretty easy build, although the component spacing is tight in some areas. It seems to really like the Denons.

post #14756 of 20045

hope you don't mind me asking, but what made you want to make the change ?

I'm into vintage receivers to drive hp's now. They offer the ability to drive orthos and hard to drive hp's with power and finese often at pennies on the dollar for what you'll pay for today's desktop amps. Of course there are drawbacks. They are often the size and weight of a mini fridge...well, not quite but close. There is no warranty so there can often be some DIY involved. But even at the purchase price plus plus a full restoration you can come out less than a lyr with nice tubes. 

 

Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I think that the 70 vintage look is just sweet. cool.gif

Yeah, vintage receivers seem quite nice. The only problem I notice is that the output impedance is usually quite high, around 50 ohms or so, so they won't work very well with headphones like Grados and the Amperior almost as a rule.
