^M9 is a balanced design, and getting the output unbalanced implies a partly different circuitry, so it is not just a matter of sheer power. The Auralic Taurus does this by changing the way power modules are used, and you can choose to have unbalanced sound into a balanced cable by a switch. The difference is very significant, like two different amps. But on the Taurus, I actually sometimes prefer the unbalanced mode, sometimes it makes things smoother in a nice way
 There is really a huge difference betwen the SE output and the balanced output, going balanced - since it is a balanced design - makes things a lot more punchy, tight and etc.etc. 
 The 2900 has a very deep and full sounding bass. If you want to hear the bass, 2900 has got the quality and quantity. 
 Good one ,)
 Great to hear that =) Do you know what version you have - what output resistors in the HP circuit?
 Totally agree =)
Totally agree with you on he6 is best balanced on Taurus, but for HE500 I find it very nice with the unbalanced out. But more fun to have the option to try both, of course :-)
 Yes indeed!. The LCD3 and HE500 are great in different ways on the Taurus. You might also throw in the HE6 while you are at it ,)
Thanks for sharing - please let us know how you're gonna work this out. Have you visited this thread: http://www.head-fi.org/t/529873/amps-that-can-drive-the-hifiman-he-6-planar-headphones ? Those guys are totally dedicated, haha - but someone running tubes for th HE6 would be a welcome variation ,)
Lots of people would agree with you, and quite a lot would disagree... But that aside, tell us more about thethe tube amp for the HE6? The HE 6 can sound gorgeous with the Leben on some music, but often gets too soft.
