Nice!
Do you feel that sometimes D10 can't get 009 loud enough?
That depends ... on how much damage you need for your ears :triportsad:. Two anchor points

1) yesterday there was a big ear 2018 in Zurich and the Stax distributor was showing sr009s plus d10 and sr300-80yrs plus d10.
2) I listen quite loud to classical music/opera w sr007/2 or sr009s plus d10. never felt under powered

hope this is helpful

Got a new baby home: a Stax SR007 Mk1 early version... in mint condition. :beyersmile:

IMG_6095.jpeg IMG_6100.jpeg

Initial listening show that is it not better or less good than my SR009, it is just different and a very good complement : SR009 for classical music and SR007 for pop/rock or SR009 for critical listening with attention to the details, and SR007 for cool and relax listening. The 007 indeed offer (a little) less details BUT is (IMO) more round and more engaging.

So, with the purchase of this SR007 mk1 I can move my EC445 / Hifiman HE500 (modded) to another room, and just kept the BHSE/STAXs in my listening room. This clean a little the top of my Audio furniture.

Congratulations and happy listening. You have a nice listening spot.
Does anybody know where I can get an aluminiun box like old 007 for my 009? I like to use it for traveling.
