Long story short I need to sell my large home set up and replace it with a headphone set up.
I have tried almost every top headphone and while I liked the Utopia and Arya with the chord hugo, the Stax SR 009s paried with the Chord Qutest and srm-t8000 blew my mind. The detail and the way it presented the music really was life changing. This is coming from a strong PMC floorstanding set up at home.
The problem is the price of the SR 009s, there are many SR 009 selling second hand for HALF the price.

So does anyone have strong experience with trying both in order to provide me with some information that could help?
I also here there is strong recommendations for the 3rd party amps.. but that can be for another discussion

Just came across this post and thought the following might be helpful.

I  do own a pair of 009’s and have them paired to a Stax 007mk2. Amp.

 

In my opinion this is a very good combination that won’t break the bank - especially if you can find a good used 007mk2 used.at around 2K.

 

A big step up is the same headphones with the Blue Hawaii amp - headphone Nirvana for most listeners.

But the BH is around 9K so you would expect a big improvement.

 

The  009S has received many good reviews and would provide an incremental improvement at even more cost.

But if you go for the 009S you will not get the full benefits unless you buy the BH or even more expensive Woo offerings.

 

Addicted to Hi Fi May provide an audition of various options..

      I am buying a set of STAX L700 headphones and energiser. My question is how do I incorporate these pieces into my current system which is MacBook Pro running Audirvana into Arcam irDACII via USB which is connected to Arcam A39 integrated amp by twin RCAs and to Arcam CDS27 streamer/CD by coaxial (ie to DAC). Will I connect the energiser to my DAC or one of the other pieces?
       
      I've searched but couldn't find an answer to this. And if it's blindingly obvious, sorry....
       
      Thanks
