Would love to hear Cocteau Twins, Mazzy Star, Pink Mountaintops or the Entrance Band on the HE1000. But my HE-5LE can handle the job too
The new Swervedriver album "I wasn't born to lose you" just came out and I hear it's verygood. Im still trying to get ahold of a copy. Edit: copy was purchased and listened to 10x or so. Very good musically.
Soundesign with BSR turntable. Purchased for 8 bucks at a good will. the turntable was seazed, but I fixed it. The needle is fine and I use it to play old records I wouldn't play on my nicer equipment. Also 8 track player with cassette adaptor. Sound fills the room but is very mellow and more of a conversation piece. The speakers are 4 watts each lol
PSB Alpha Mini speakers sound great for the size and NHT speaker as a center channel hooked up to a Sony surround amp for TV and ipod listening. It's plenty loud but not a lot of bass. Rectilinear mini III speakers (3ohm)hooked up to Topping amp tp21 with yamaha c-6 pre amp and project turntable. The yamaha pre amp really boosts the volume of the topping and the phono input is great, plus it is from around 1980 and the hp jack easily powers my Hifiman HE5le. It's a mixed...
In the photo of the guy with all the records, they appear to be laying flat. I saw this article on Facebook somewhere before and was curious, as I've heard before, that it may be bad for them to lay flat. I like thrift store shopping and usually won't buy records that are flat and stacked really high. Anyway, IMO quality is better than quantity when it comes to music.

Update: the c-6 performs excellent with the hifiman he-5le. I can't imagine turning it up louder than 2/3 volume with them.
Got the new Pixies and Black Angles. Also got used Sunny Day in Glasgow, the Antlers and Siouxie and the Banchies. Forgive the spelling:)
I have he5le and really like them. Have not heard the others you mention. Have the sennheiser hd600 and they're very bland after having the 5le. Had the yamaha yh100, sound is great but they're less than comfortable. Glad I got my 5le. Only paid $420 US with shipping for them. They looked unused but were supposed display model for a large US distributer.
Today I found a Yamaha c-6 preamp at a thrift store for 25. Thought about it for quite awhile because I wasn't finding much info on the internet except for 2 of them on eBay for $200 and $350. So I bought it with the plan of using its phono preamp mostly. Well got it home and set up, WOW! The headphone out is very good. Powers my hd600 at half volume at ear blasting levels. It has so many ways to eq it and sounds very good for used gear. Lucky me , I know. My curiosity is...
