The supposed funny half of Martin & Lewis.  Dean Martin sings better.

It had better be really good compared to the combi RKV-Wee (for listening with the Stax 009)
(NB: strengths RKV-Wee : sound stage, dynamics, tone (timbre), listening agrement)

Victory of the electra by KO on the RKV, obviously.

Is the email on the eddiecurrent.com website still valid? I've tried to get in touch about the Electra, but didn't get any reply.

That Electra will blow the doors off of any transformer rig, hands down.

Dunno bout the 009s, but with the 007 it is a match made in Heaven.

Just call him. He's had issues ever since he upgraded to Windows 8.

A few reasons / comparisons:

 

  1. Personally, I don't like the SR009 from the BHSE. The BHSE is probably the brightest sound stat amp out there. It's a great combo with the SR007mk1 (which is laid-back sounding). The technicalities of the BHSE and 009 are awesome, but those two just don't gel well together. Again just my opinion.
  2. The Electra is all tubes, the BHSE is a hybrid. If you are familiar with the EC amps, the Electra has a sound in the EC mold: not quite tubey, not quite solid-state. The Electra exhibits more micro-dynamics and extracts more micro-detail. The BHSE is more precise, has more control, has a blacker background.
  3. The BHSE build quality is amazing. Nothing quite touches it. Justin goes OCD over the chassis, etc. willing to throw away anything which is not perfect just to start over.
  4. The Electra costs less, although I think the price will be slowing increasing over time.
  5. If you are into tube rolling, the Electra will also take 6L6s, which do sound different from the EL34s.
  6. The BHSE wait times are excruciating. It often takes much longer than initially "promised" to receive it, often over a year or sometimes almost two. Those who have it do think it's very much worth the wait. The Electra wait times are also long, but given that they are in production, you can expect a few months.

 

But yeah, order both. Keep both or sell one.

 

 

 

 

Hi, Guys.

 
How different the Electra is from the WES? Both are all tubes, correct?
 
Thanks,
Erico
