I read up some more on the Korean Bakoon 01 and 21 and they may not be my amps of choice. 
The Japanese HDA-5210 MkIII sounds like a better option.
Does anyone know if this one exists in 220V and where/how to get one?

The Stratus does seem like the best option for tubes indeed, with the WA5 coming second.

This is all from my search with only a TH-900 (or AT Woodies) and my sound preferences in mind though.
For me these phones don't need to sound more neutral, clean or whatever.
I like their traits and would love to keep those or enhance them. 

I bought my Japanese HDA-5210 from WAR audio in Western Australia. Mine is 240V - there are vendors on ebay. Who may be able to source a 220v version - it's worth messaging them as their prices were cheaper than what I paid. On the back of the amp their is sign writing with multiple AC input setting options including with a red dot indicating the amps AC input. There is a setting for 200-220V - see photo. This amp has great synergy with TH900 good luck.

Just for clarification.
The red dot indicates voltage AC input setting in my case 240V as per picture above

Blow is a schematic of the pices in a TH-900. You should be able to order the piece from your distributor.
But to do this you would need to de-solder the cables from one side of the headphone and then re-solder them.
Again, if you're not comfortable doing that don't do it.
If you go to a good dealer that has a service department they are able to do that for you.



looks straightforward enough

Thanks for the info. Here it's the 2240V version we need as well. Our voltage varies between 200 and 240.

I guess this amp is pretty powerful, from what I could find?

Is there no background noise at all with a TH-900?

What did you connect the Satri-Link to, if I may ask? Isn't that just for use with other Bakoon gear?

All in all, do you consider this amp to be top quality gear?

That Bakoon HDA will have no background noise even for super sensitive fitear TG334 :smile:

Audio-GD's ASCC output is compatible with Bakoon's SATRI LInk. Using a Ref-3 DAC with my HPA-21 and loving the sound.

I was reading about loose rubber pieces when I noticed the rubber pice on my right can had come loose. (Bad omen I guess) I'v been supercareful with my cans, but I guess coiling it up a few times a day for a coupe of years tear on such a rubber part. I don't know if I'm going through all the trouble to fix it. Maybe just use some powerful black insulating tape to secure the piece in place. Let me know how the repairs are going if you're going to do it yourself Up Late.

Possibly getting TH-900's today. The anticipation is making the work day seem endless, and the temperature records for the summer are expected to be broken today. Coincidence? :rolleyes:

 Congrats ... keep us posted.

Okay, the package has finally arrived. Took a few unboxing photos, and all I can say is that the they are absolutely gorgeous! No photo has yet conveyed how beautiful these bad boys are in the flesh. Now off to shower, I don't want to ruin my new baby after 12 hours of making asphalt. :tongue_smile:
