Also, great camera work on those pictures. What kinda camera you using?
I'd have to agree with Shubar. The cost of the SR-009 shouldn't be taken in isolation. They need a top-flight amp and a high-quality source to be driven well. So, don't think of it as a headphone purchase, so much as a system purchase. I'm sure you could get away with spending $1500-2000 on a used Stax amp (323, T1) and a decent used DAC (Lavry DA11, Benchmark DAC1, W4SD2, etc.), but then you wouldn't be driving the SR-009 with the best possible amplification. You should probably put some serious thought into whether or not you're looking to spend 1.5-2x the cost of the headphones on building a system around them. Electrostats are a different animal altogether, and not for the faint of heart (or wallet).
