It's also great with my SR-Lambda and SR-5 Gold Edition normal bias phones, and pro bias SR-003 and Lambda Nova Signature. It does a decent job with 007 as well, although not better than my GES did because they both need more power for those phones and wont show their full potential. The Cavalli Liquid Lightning was my favorite with 007 at RMAF 2012, and the eXStatA was Cavalli's 1st venture into stat amps.
The other thing that the ad didn't mention is that while I spent $950 on the parts to have this amp built, the total amp build was closer to $1450 with labor and shipping. This a really nice amp, in sound and features. I'm sorry to see that fangsi has to sell it.
