RE: Here's a great review...

I have the Stax SR-009 and the Ray Samuels A10 Thunderbolt preamp/electrostatic headphone amp. Unfortunately Tyll, didn't roll tubes in the A10. With the right tubes, the A10 is a great amp for the
SR-009. The A10 is also the best tube preamp that I've ever owned and I've had a few really good ones including the CAT SL1 Ultimate, Audible Illusions Modulus 3A and a Conrad Johnson PV11.

I also owned 2 planar headphones, the HiFiMan HE6 and the Audeze LCD X, and 3 dynamics, the Sennheiser HD800 hardwired with 18 gauge Zeus OCC copper cable, a highly modified Denon D7000 (Lawton Audio LA-7000) and a highly modified AKG K340. My amp for all of my non-electrostatic headphones is my Audio GD Master 9 solid state balanced amp that outputs 9 watts into 40 ohms. I like my SR009 the best but all of them are really great headphones and I can see how others may disagree based on personal preferences. As much as I like headphones though, I always prefer either of my speaker systems to any of my headphones. I turn to my headphones only for private listening due to me not wanting to disturb family members.
