Comparison of the Thunderbolt II A-10, BHSE, WES, and other worthy amps with the 009-Has this...

Impressions of the differences, strengths and weaknesses of the various amps would be appreciated.

I doubt there's anyone that's had the chance to A, B, C the three, (didn't you forget the Cavalli LL?), but I'd be interested to hear about this as well. From what little I've gathered reading others' impressions, the 009 has potential brightness problems that aren't alleviated by the BHSE, but are somewhat on the warmer WES and LL (although I've read some who say there IS no brightness issue at all). I think there's only one poster I've read on here that's tried it with the A10. What's really needed is for someone to have all of them available at a meet-up so there's more of an opportunity to directly compare them, preferably through the same systems (though that's probably just a pipedream).

I think some have heard all the OP listed at RMAF but I don't know if you want meet condition impressions (especially on stats) or if you're looking for something more concrete.  I'd be surprised if someone had all three at home at any point, let alone all at once.  Some users have gone from the WES to the BHSE though, there is a WES vs BHSE thread here, as well as a mini-meet with all three amps you mentioned.

Let's not forget the Eddie Current Electra on the list, which sounds nice with SR009.  

Then there's a the McAlister EA8 'stat amp no one seems to have listened to.

August LA meet will have BHSE, Electra, and LL all in the same room to my knowledge.  It might also have the DIYT2 and DIY BH.
