Yes, the BHSE + SR009 is more refined and better but the GS-X MK2+HD800 is pretty awesome in their own right. Don't forget to report back when you do.
I don't know what connection Paddy is using with his HD-800's cable.
I believe Paddy is considering bringing his DNA, but he won't have that amp til around September. ( I'm still worried that if Paddy did decided to bring his DNA, something might happen to it in transit )
Although I was using my HD-600's with my GS-Xmk2, since getting the LCD-XC's I mostly use those headphones with that amp, however since getting and using the Psvane EL34PH tubes with my BHSE, I'm not listening to my LCD / GS-X that often.
I've found some music I like which is done by Simon Ng ( DJ Transaction ), but ATM I'm only hearing his music via my iPad, in which I plug my LCD's into. If I can find out the way to download his music, then I'll buy the songs I like by him and download them onto my MacMini, then I can hear his songs with my 009 / BHSE.
With me being old school I'm not very savvy when it comes to computers.
After I've heard Paddy's HD-800 with my GS-Xmk2 and his DNA if he brings it, I'll have a good listen then posts my thoughts.
P.S. The whole point in Paddy visiting my place is for him to listen to my headphone equipment, so I don't know how much time I'll be hearing his HD-800's.
