    Yes, we know they are 009s, but are they 009S?

    :wink:

    The silver is 009S, take a look at the mesh, it’s 3D raised, not flat.

    exactly, one of the two details that distinguish it, in addition to the soun element in gold that perhaps in the picture you can not see well.

    What number is your's SR-009BK?

    I was at Akihabara and had an extended listening of the SR-009 & SR-009S on the T8000 and the 007T MK2
    Prefer the SR-009 on both amp for the soundstage and the more airy details.
    However, when I received my SR-009BK it sound different from the SR-009.
    Can someone with both the SR-009 and the SR-009BK confirm this? Farfetch I know.

    Can someone suggest a way to acquire a replacement cable for an SR-001 Mk2? Maybe a specific deputee service in japan?

    I nicked mine somehow and it has developed a channel imbalance. That was a couple years ago, and at the time, Yamas said they could source it for me but i also saw where a lot of people were having trouble getting Yamas to deliver products. Between that and being in tight financial times, i didn't pursue it further.

    Stax USA only told me they don't have it.

    Still hoping to hear some of your experiences of the above. I was ready to buy the D10 at the local HP shop but I wanted to demo it first. Unfortunately they didn't have a demo one so I haven't bought it yet.

    I listened to that combo for about a year and loved it. I to began wondering what the bottleneck was. I upgraded to a BHSE and was really impressed. I later picked up a 009S and found the upgrade to BHSE from 353X to be way more significant than the L700 to the 009S. L700 scales up _very_ nicely from a 353X. I can't speak specifically for the Woo GES unfortunately.

    The 009Ss are great, but when the gf wants to listen too I'm very happy using the L700s and letting her use the 009Ss (she claims they fit her better :wink: ).

    Don't have L700, but have next closest thing in an L700 modded L300 Limited. Started off with SRM-323S then went to Mjolnir SRD-7 transformer + NAD C275BEE stereo amp based setup because already had the amp in use for my HT mains. Noticeable improvement in low end subbass impact, midbass punch, fullness of sound, and smoothness while everything else pretty much stays the same for clarity, detail, speed, etc... Brand new the NAD C275BEE amp runs ~$1,300 and Mjolnir SRD-7 around $740 shipped. Will just need some way to control volume better than the rear gain adjustment - I use the RME ADI-2 DAC for preamp volume control.

    I think any decent 2 Channel stereo amp used with a Mjolnir Audio SRD-7 will be a noticeable improvement over the SRM-323S/353X for much less than the specialized custom STAX amps.
