I'm almost scared to admit i really preferred the 323S to the others...
End of the story was I got the 323S for my 009's :-)
I had the chance yesterday to compare all 3 (SR-007mkII) and I completely agree :-)

 

Har Tor lurat dig med? norske fan...

It's a conspiracy!

Personally I blame CDWMcInSpots for pointing me in his direction, Tor for letting me spend hours comparing them and offering the shinies with immediate availability, and lastly my weak swedish genes for giving into temptation and getting the 009's... :P

Startade hifi resan som 17 åring, Idag är jag 19 och lagt 80.000 SEK på hörlurar.. It never ends... 

 

du har inga guldöron, silverpläterad koppar ger bi-effekter som inte är trevliga!

 

Har hört typ allt. Hela vägen till Sennheiser orpheus i lugn hemma miljö, 2 personer.

Sorry, but this is an english speaking forum.

 

I don't want to sound like an old grouch but could you keep that kind of conversation for pm's?

It suits your stated location:

Location: in a world I can't understand

 

By the way, it's just a Swede "talking" to a Norwegian which apparently has Swedish genes. They're "talking" about the Norwegian STAX importer that serves Norway and Sweden and his pusher talents. Probably not of much interest outside Scandinavia anyway.

 

There you got it, sort of and in a nutshell.

I'm sorry if I've sounded like a dick, I had a bad day and just posted what I had in mind...

 

But come on, what's the point? what's the point of writing on a public board in a language that 1% of the forum understands? I could just chime in and talk to Arnaud in french so I'm sure that no one understands what we're saying. If these guys want to talk about the local stax distributor then so be it. They don't have to hide themselves.

I have no problem understanding where you are coming from, and I try my best to stick to the "official" language. Sorry if I slipped :-)
But you're right, this is starting to get a bit far off topic...

What are my other options for amping the SR-009 apart from 727/323/LL when I prefer SS to tubes?

Don't worry, it's no big deal beerchug.gif

 

Sorry if I've been aggressive, English is not my first language and it seems like my original post was way harsher than I intended.

A second-hand 717.

Build a KGSS or a KGSSHV.

I'm English and only write in English, and half the time I still don't understand what I'm writing. I do know some words in Dutch and German though, but don't ask me to spell any of them. confused_face_2.gif

Don't worry.  Half the time we don't understand what you're writing either.

Misunderstand me correctly. I do agree with you and never understood why t-h-e-p-i-m-p began writing in Swedish. On the other hand you didn't miss much useful information.

 

My answer was probably triggered by you comming across a bit cross, and that the Swedish content wasn't really interesting to anyone outside Scandinavia anyway.

I've had a bit of gammelnorsk (Old Norwegian) at school, but don't understand much of Icelandic and Faroese anyway. When I watch an Icelandic TV series or film, I understand a word here and there, but never enough to get the meaning.

 

Example excerpts of Old Norwegian:

"Et utvalg gammelnorske tekster fra 1200- og 1300-tallet i faksimiler og i diplomatarisk avskrift" by Odd Einar Haugen, University of Bergen.

German spelling is actually much more straight forward than English, especially to Scandinavians. Ditto for pronunciation. The grammar incl. the placing of words within sentences is an other matter. I've gotten the impression that Italian, Spanish and Portuguese are reasonable as well.

 

A classic example of (horrible) English spelling:

The spelling is a bit off for modern Icelandic but I can easily read that.  That is indeed what they do with the old saga's, the spelling is just modernized but the rest is left unchanged.  Some words have been altered in the last 800-900 years but it's still remarkably close. 

 

Now I need to find some nice Icelandic name for this Stax amp I just finished designing/building...  smily_headphones1.gif
