    Far from "value rig". [​IMG] I've always wanted a pair of JH13s.

    I was referring to both the HE-6/F1 and your JH13s. [​IMG] I previously owned the HE-6s and loved them for the year I had with them.

    indeed, and i would love to hear the LCD-3s...hopefully that will happen some day not too far in the future. This way i can see why you chose the LCD-3s instead, cuase most of the people who choose the LCD-3s are rock/metal listeners like yourself, whereas most people who prefer the HE-6s prefer other genres...my goal was just getting something as similar to the 009s as possible though, which is what ive got in the 6s, i dont think the LCD-3s are even close tonally

    I would say that's a good choice then. The LCD-3s are more "complimentary" to the SR-009s than similar.

    $25000 ML CLX electrostatic full size speakers would make me about as happy.

    I think a good pair of ribbon-tweeter ELACs with appropriate supporting hardware would do it for me.

    I used to have three pairs of Stax headphones and the closest speaker that will match the Stax is my electrostatic Sound Labs but if you do not have the right room you will not be getting all the benefits. Not a issue with headphones.

    I thought a 2000-dollar system is expensive. $12000......[​IMG]

    I have tried the 007 earspeakers and I have to say that they sound really great compared to my stax 4040II, which is not really bright, but just lacking a bit in bass.
    The 007 (with it's srm-007tII amp), seemed a bit on the too dark side.
    Could anyone tell me how the 009 compares to the 404 and/or 007 ?

    By the way, I'm new here and I listen to headphones only. I wanted the greatest sound that i could afford and I still don't miss listening to a speaker-based music system.

    Oh does anyone listen to vinyl on headphones?

    Best or not but some of us with slimmer wallets can only dream i guess.

    Candidate for the best post ever.
