I felt that the 009 actually sounded better with Stax amps and the LL . However a friend ( who listens to classical music only) liked the pairing and has ordered the BHSE as well. Then he heard the Electra..... ..
BHSE+007mk1 is something else however.
sorry to derail the thread a bit.
This has been my experience as well. I know the BHSE is a sacred cow here on head-fi, but personally I prefer the SR-009 with the LL. The BHSE is still a fantastic amp, and I agree that with the SR-007 it's absolutely tops (which is why I've got one on the way). The control it has over the driver really wakes it up and gets it going. The SR-009 is already wide awake however.
Got an Electra headed my way, too. Crazy times.
