I have had three vintage receivers all of which drove the LCD-2 and the HE-6 well. In fact the LCD-2 out of the HO on the sx125 sounds amazing. 
I have tried the taps direct. There is not much difference. I stopped because it's more convenient with the HO. I also have a mint serviced Sansui AU-717 which is only 80w/ch, which is noticeably better from the taps. However I think that anything over 100w it should not matter.  By the way if you like warmer sound the Sansui is almost tube like a tube amp.
The best I have heard the HE-6 is from the HO on my vintage Pioneer sx1250. That includes several high end rigs at meets here in LA (although MrRoger's tube set up was damn close and it had the tubey smoothness). However my pioneer has been driving speakers in the living room lately which is not where I listen to headphones, so they have been getting little to no use. Then on a whim (and based on Jude's comment that he used it to drive the HE-6) I purchased the HiFi-M8. I...
Would you consider splitting them up? How much for just the ipod? (I already have an I-20 and it works fine with the converter for charging and playing my wife's 5s)
Rhydon stopped making Magnum's based on my last exchange with him (almost two years ago). But it really is not that hard to source the parts and build yourself (you just need Mark to match your cups and drivers. He loves doing it:)
          I have been away from Head-fi for some time now. But coming back to this thread lt's like nothing changed for the last 30 years. I was actually considering selling my vintage rig ( sx1250 restored and serviced by Howard at Audio Specialist and matching HPM 100's recapped by me). But then we recently moved into a place with a better sounding space and I am now hesitating. its amazing how much the room makes a difference with speakers (but you all know...
I am looking forward to trying it out, I am curious what it can do with the HE-6's (not expecting that it will get anywhere close to my pioneer, but hopeful). I did not get a discount from Moon is there a code? Was there a deadline?.
Waiting for Mine from Moon audio. First head-fi kit I have bought in almost two years.
$500 will buy you a moded Swiss ETA 2836-2 replica of a sub. For another $100 you can get a real bezel, this build will be indistinguishable from the real thing unless you take out the movement and check the serial numbers.  I would also agree that any money someone offers you for your Rolex in an emergency will be based on the assumption that it is a fake unless you can provide documentation and proof that it is genuine. These days when I see someone wearing a Rolex...
