I have a brand new Sony HAP-S1 with 40w/ch from the speaker taps, it gets really loud at 40% volume and also makes the HE-6 sound clean with a deep soundstage and no hint of shrillness in the highs. But once you hear it on my restored 1974 Sansui AU-717 with 80w/ch there is no comparison, esspecialy when it comes to the quality and quantity of bass and articulation of midrange. When plugged into the speaker taps of my restored pioneer sx-1250 the increase to 160 w/ch take...

Back in Black Dropped it off with Howard at Audio Specialist (in the Valley) back in December. I forgot how good 80w/ch sounds, and how heavy it is.
I forgot to mention that with the HE-6 I use the highest gain setting and boost the bass up one level. I think it is accurate to say that the M8 does not drive the HE-6 to it's best level. And I also like the "relaxed" description, but sometimes that is also enough with certain types of music.
Does anyone here use their M8 with an HE-6? Other than Jude I have not heard anyone else's opinion on this combo. And for the record I know it should not be able to drive them, they need a speaker amp, bla, bla,. Please if you haven't heard the combo keep your opinion to yourself (because that is all it is). I have been enjoying the s#!t out of mine for the last three months and it only keeps getting better. So it's not new toy syndrome and I have heard the HE-6 properly...
Yeah 320 sounds good, I also found some Electronic and classical stations in 320. It also looks like the S1 is upscaling the stream through the DSEE engine. At least the blue light is on.
Cool,No rush. I am still playing around with it and really enjoying it. Listening to that Audiophile Jazz station you mentioned. Did you come across any other 320 streaming stations?
Thanks Vinnie.I would be greatly interested in what you think of the S1 as it is much more versatile than the Z1ES.If you could include it in your thoughts when developing your mod packs that would be awesome. One observation is that it puts out solid power from the speaker out (Using speaker taps to the HE-6) but the headphone jack is not getting all of it. Any way to harness more of the 40w/channel in the HO would be appreciated, and I think would make it a killer...
