Very cool, madbull. I hope your EMLs arrive soon, too.
third-eye, thanks for asking. I did manage to swap both of the EML pairs in last Sunday, and they don't come anywhere close to the Sophia Princess driving the HD800. Still primo for the T1. But I really like the sound quality, image space, tone, balance and musicality of the Princess+HD800 combo. The HD800 sounds better than I have ever heard with the Stratus+Princess. Like, if I had known the HD800 could sound like this, I would have been WAY more motivated to find the right amp. I certainly have found it. The liquid flow, the voice definition, the coherent, seamless sound-world, and the detail resolution surpass what I heard from the SR-009 and the maxxed-out WES or the BH that I owned for a while this past summer, and are far beyond everything else. The LCD-3 might compete, but the pair I borrowed from TheCableCo just didn't have the natural tone and realism that I am enjoying from the Stratus+Princess+HD800. The Apex Pinnacle that TTVJ kindly loaned me for 10 days last December didn't make the HD800 sound this good, either (then again, I didn't have the M1 yet when the Pinnacle visited).
I am going to stick with this combo now. It will be interesting to see how much time passes before I itch for a change. Maybe a very long time.
