Sure it can drive the SR-009 to moderate levels, but it will not show what the SR-009 really are capable of. I have owned both the SRM-007tII and a KGSSHV at the same time. In comparison the 007tII starts showing its weaknesses from moderate levels up to high levels. Bass is a bit wooly and mids and treble start sounding a bit sharp/edgy. I think Tyll described this very well in his review of the SRM-007tII: "The problem with this amp is all that goodness goes out the window when turned up to stronger listening levels. The bass doesn't seem to get louder, just woollier, and the mids start to get shouty. But the worst thing is that the somewhat innocuous treble sparkle quickly grew through glare and on into what sounds like significant distortion to me." The KGSSHV is a much nicer amp to listen to IME. I ended up selling my SRM-007tII.
