    I did, in summary h2 is an outstanding day, however d10 is also *very* good, hence I decided to be happy with 2 boxes (a&k and d10) instead of three boxes...

    Yes my friend, i play with AudioQuest cable minijack/rca use Chord Dac, it works very fine...play with AR mr2 too, best dap, from Line out and D10 works great!
    Internal Dac of d10 is good, you know very well that better the source is, the better your result is.

    to do well this test, I should compare the Carbon and D10 always using my Nadac, it is a test that I will certainly, although I can anticipate that the Carbon has more authority and energy to squeeze all the juice from each headset Stax, but the d10 defends itself very well, if it does not require high volumes of listening, sound is delicious.

    Which cable is this - do you have a model number or link?

    Thanks for the post. Some very useful information there. Is it true that Belgians are legally obligated to own Tintin toys?:grin:

    Of course. Thank you. The surprise is after giant amplifiers, this little thing drives 009 well

    That's interesting. Here we have a portable amp playing the flagship more than loud enough. And I never need to go beyond 3 (out of 10) on my SRM-323S's volume dial with the SR-L700 when listening to Google Play Music out of an ODAC.

    Could it be that some of us have very sensitive ears? Or is it just that much of the volume dial range of our amps is not really needed?

    Thanks for this impression, I personally don't listen too loud and don't listen to stuff that has a large dynamic range so it is good to know that even a lesser amplifier will still be suitable (I'm now really thinking of starting with a vintage T1S to drive the 009/S in the case I ever stumble upon an Omega later).

    I know many here have stated that the bass really improves with the more powerful amps, is there any kind of impedance measurements across the frequency range for the 009/S? Does this question even make sense to ask for electrostats?

    Loudness depends on your source output and dac output as well.
