The reason why I didn't order the PH tubes when I first heard about them Julian, was because of what I read about their build quality, but after hearing what Grant Fidelity were doing, I ordered via them.
I've had mine about 2-3months without any problems, but some head-fiers have had theirs a lot longer so it'll be best to hear from them.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but does anyone know if there will a successor to SR-009?

Nobody knows. I would doubt there will be any time soon since the SR-009 is relatively new, but in the long term it seems unlikely a company would never innovate a new product. Therefore, unless they were to go out of business, I seriously doubt they will never make new headphones. It would be a poor business model.

Agreed. How long has it been since the day it was released anyway...4, 5 years?

If you go on the Stax website, the history section tells the the model and the year it came out.
This might give an idea when a future model might come out.

With my KGSShv on the way to me now (off-board, 2sa1968, 14mA) and already owning the 007, I'm wondering what else is worth looking at. I highly respect the 009 but don't want to own one. I'm always open for an SR-4070 but that is proving elusive. What else?

 

 

The SR-003 mkII is something I'd love to try - probably with custom molds for the tips. This is almost a sure thing due to the low price and complete difference from my O2. 

 

The SR-207 is being suggested to me, as the least obnoxious/bright of the new Lambda models. Also the cheapest which is a bonus. Hoping this would sort of be an HD800 type experience, rather different from my O2 but enjoyable in its own way.

 

What else is worth looking at? I remember enjoying the 404LE but not sure if it's all that different than the 207. Also the prices now seem a lot higher than they used to be, due to scarcity I suppose.
