Hi, Quote: Well to @Arnaud's credit he is a big loyal fan of STAX. The TotalDAC Six as a source seems to have boosted the BHSE/009 setup. The reason why he advises to look at the source. The maintenance problems are another view which definitely as a reseller you are right to point out. I find really interesting your comments comparing the 009 and the Utopia since I thought it would be the Planar technology to relagate the estat to old fashion (older speaker what you write). Would you say that with the UTOPIA dynamic could again compete with Planars ?
