It's all too easy in this hobby for signifiers to be perpetuated and emptied of meaning in the process, so I think it's important to always keep in mind why certain pairings are advocated, and that it's ultimately a personal preference thing. Both the BHSE and LL are exceptional amps that do what they do exceptionally, however they both go about doing it in a different way. The BHSE is a powerhouse and has better control over the drivers of what you've got plugged into it, it's the more detailed of the two, but compared to the LL it sounds a bit flat to my ears. The LL on the other hand is less transparent and smears a little bit of detail here and there, but I find it more involving and spatially convincing.
The SR-007 is the mousy sibling in Stax's flagship trio, and it needs stimulus to come out of its shell and be the life of the party, so people tend to like it paired with the BHSE. The SR-Omega and SR-009 on the other hand are high strung and need to relax a little for their charms to be appreciated by certain folks, so the LL is their preferred choice.
However you may feel differently, and whenever possible it's best for people to listen for themselves while trying to bracket off expectations as much as possible, to listen with a pair of "fresh ears." As Justin said so very astutely earlier on in this thread, people tend to measure their impressions against those that have been established as canonical, either on the authority of certain members or just because they've been repeated so many times as to become written into our symbolic order here on head-fi. To that end, I think it's good for publications to challenge this with fresh sets of impressions that may seem totally alien to us or inverse to our norms, so long as we can keep things in perspective.
