This is the first new thread I've authored myself. I just wanted to know your opinions concerning the STAX SR-009 compared to the a speaker system of around $10,000+ and other great set-ups. I've owned the LCD-2, and I now own the HD800 and T1, along with a very good Polk 2-channel floorstanding speaker set up (I know it's Polk, but I think it sounds great, I actually prefer it to the LCD-2, HD800, T1 for just pure listening pleasure). I think the HD800 and T1 sound great, but now I'm at the point that if I want to go to the next step for headphones, I might as well go with STAX, namely the SR-009, I'm not going to buy a used Orpheus system, that's even more expensive, the SR-009 is my upper limit. Is it really worth it to invest in a great system with an SR-009, or spend the same amount with a pair of great floorstanding speakers? Like Paradigm, B&W, etc. I just wanted to know any thoughts about this matter.
