    Headamp Blue Hawaii Special Edition

    Not going to happen, it's well and truly over. I doubt Toshiba or Sanyo would start re-production based on this industries piddley numbers. In fact I would have back-ups for the rarer parts, just in case, and insure your BHSE is able to continue past component life span or sudden failure.

    Best amplifiers for Stax O2 Mk1 ¿?

    The KGSSHV is the way to go, in many ways it's similar to the BHSE design, with exception for the last output stage.

    Question about amps for the Stax SR-009

    Don’t forget the source... I think it’s completely relevant for complete synergy. I’m one those weird people that are loving the BHSE and 009. Or maybe my Buffalo SE DAC is a good match, who knows...

    The Stax Thread III

      The 007MK1s are a bitch load, the BHSE and T2 are the only amps I’ve heard that wake them up.

    Question about amps for the Stax SR-009

      Why not? You have every right to your opinion, if we all agreed it would be pretty boring.   I wouldn’t be too quick to shot the messenger so to speak. For instance in my case I had a set of used tubes that did not sound good with the 009s, bought from ebay, I assume they were past their...

    Question about amps for the Stax SR-009

    Using a lowly BuffaloIIISE DAC and getting excellent results from a BHSE and SR-009s, not at all bright or fatiguing. No regrets at all letting my SR-007MK1s go, I had the opportunity to compare the 009 and 007 together, there's wasn't a recording were I preferred the 007, across a wide range of...

    Phil95 would like to change his BHSE order, please make it in pink, because he's a big girls blouse.

    Great idea! Justin can employ somebody to thread watch for all the questions needing answering. They'll have to bug Justin and waste time anyway for all the answers because they sure as hell they won't know and reply back here! You've got a real business head on you.

    Review: Cavalli Liquid Lightning

    dBel84, how could you possible construe my intentions as dishonest? I was not the instigator of the concerns raised, and rather than having this matter stew and manifest especially as it's a safety related I want the matter confirmed by Alex. Should be simple and straightforward, I don't see how...

      I wish this was a laughing matter.   Alex,   Please answer my question from post #282, assuring the community your amps are safe to use should be simple enough.   Cheers John

    Upgrade to SR 009?

    I’m assuming your not happy and looks like you setting yourself up for another round of disappointment. Unless your going to audition equipment as this level with your own ears this thread will lead you nowhere fast. What would help is to explain your musical tastes, how loud and how long you...

      As a rule if thumb I’d always put the circuit before the type of interconnect

    Nothing you haven’t seen before Corey, Just a straight up Buff IIISE with Trident regulators, LCDPS for VD and 2 x LCBPS for an IVY III plus Sumr transformers. I’m using the DACs internal volume controller, any future amp builds will not have analog pots, the digital control is the best...
