Yeah - I'll stick with Trevor - I've had nothing but very good dealings with him. And he's pretty fast as well. Also, he will make the cable hardwire ready for you if you ask. I think he calls it tinned or something like that..
I asked Trevor to make mine with the Reign 24 cable to match the cable on my headphones. I thought about getting a cable that goes straight from the headphones (hardwired) to the bananas or spades. But that would really limit you from using your headphones on any other non speaker amp.
AJ - you already have a very capable DAC - all you need is the HE-6 (fully modded) and a good speak amp - of your choice.. Be prepared to compare the HE6-X to the 009s .. What a battle. I know from first hand experience the 009s will win in treble clarity (Maybe) it's amazing what that headphone can do with the top end of the spectrum. - but nothing else..
Sorry all, my doctor shall remain un-named. This is his request. So I will honor his wishes. However, these mods are a level up from the stock HE-6 - no question. I'm coming from a JKenny Ciunas converter. The problem is - I also introduced the some Cabledyne Silver Reference interconnects as well. So I have no idea what is producing the new level of clarity. In time I will A/B the JKenny and the Alpha. But right now. I have bigger fish to fry. The Code-X side by...
Got the Modded HE-6s back. Now I must say - "IT"S A MUST" I was very hesitant for a while now, but yeah. The Full mod is a must. Grill, Fuzzor, pads (I'm now comparing the FocusPad vs. the Vegan pads) and in my case Hardwire.
