Bring also a BHSE or a KGSSHV Carbon to compare with your 40k amplifier.
Knowing MSB I bet it sounds great...but how great it sounds? For that price it should be the best electrostatic headphone amplifier of all time and crush the BHSE or KGSSHV Carbon...so bring them to compare.

All of a sudden the Sennheiser Orpheus 2 systems seems like an absolute bargain.

I am in the fortunate position of already having a Select II with dual power bases, I am trying to get an auction of the headphone amp but it seems in Australia I am out of luck. 
 
Does anyone have experience with it already ? The last time I heard Electrostatics they were Stax 009's through a BHSE and I felt that whilst they had incredible resolving power I became quite fatigued fairly quickly as my brain was hopping from listening to one instrument or section of an Orchestra and not the full performance. I also felt that they lacked bass weight. Is this a common comment from Head-Fiers or did I just not give it enough time? 
 
I currently listen to Woo 234's and either Abyss or LCD-4's. which give me the entirety of the music and plenty of bass extension and weight. It also gives me the flexibility of ruling tubes to fine tune the system further.
 
Is the Stax 009 the best sounding electrostatic headphone still?

Looking at your taste, im sure you will find the select a better amp due to the pricetag.

Put a 009 (bright) witha bright amp (BHSE) and you should obviously expect fatigue.

Hi Isquirrel, I only listened very briefly to the MSB  Select paired with their Electrostatic amp at the Munich HighEnd. In my opinion it didn't sound bright at all and had a good balance of sound.
 
But first impression can be deceiving. Hope you can try it out yourself.

How would you compare it with the BHSE?

Hi All
 
This will be my 1st CanJam and I am very excited to attend. I have watched a few CanJam YouTube vids to get an understanding of what goes on.
 
I am really into music and have a relatively good hifi system but don't really know that much regarding HeadPhones, etc.
 
I will be staying at the hotel on the Saturday evening so looking forward to 2 full days attendance.
 
Oh, I regularly look at this forum and find it very interesting regarding equipment reviews, etc.
