The HE-6 properly amped is right up there with the HD800 in detail retrieval. I believe you may be referring to the separation due to the enormous sound stage of the HD800 presentation, that gives an illusion that it is supremely capable at detail retrieval but to me that sounds quite artificial.
I am currently running my HE-6 off a new amp in the house, the vintage NAD 2400 power amp. The first thing that is recognizable is the expanded sound stage, I did not think the HE-6 had it in them to be this wide! The bass has also a lot more energy than with my previous amp, Alesis RA150.
Never mentioned LCD-3 being bass heavy but I said it has the perfect bass from a headphone, and I've tried sooo many. @mlxx, good point I'm satisfied with my classic LCD-3 but I wish they worked on making their headphones more comfortable ;).
As a bass head, LCD-x is bass light. I do not enjoy my electronic, or other bass-heavy genres with it especially when I have the LCD-3 within hands reach.
I own the LCD-3 classic and the LCD-X. Like many of you, I was excited with the the buzzword "Fazor technology". I prefer the LCD-3 to the LCD-X, and the HE-6 to the LCD-x. There is no chance I'll be upgrading the the LCD-3 to the Fazor because I do not want to touch that marvellous bass. Loose bass is something Audeze was not known for, but with this upgrade they are. LCD-X in my opinion is a completely different sounding headphone than the classic LCD-3 and LCD-2, a lot...
Unfortunately because I am moving to another location, I have to sell my setup. The unit is in great condition and I admire the sound greatly coming out of this DAC. This is the black pre-amp version. Included is the USB cable and the original box/manual from Mytek.   Price: $1250 (includes shipping and PP fees)
009 + Car = does not compute. Unless of course you're Bill Gates.
Hmm then I guess I am not interested, I do not want to touch the bass on my LCD-3 as it is just perfect!
No you're not. Don't take the price of a headphone as a benchmark to sound quality. Your personal sound quality is what matters the most. I personally was not a fan of SR-009s bass and presentation so I sold it, I much prefer the lower end Stax phones in comparison.
I was thinking of powering my HE-6 with my speaker amplifier which is a Crown NXLS1500. It outputs 300 watts per channel at 8 ohms, 525 watts per channel at 4 ohms, 1550 watts per channel at 4 ohms bridged. Is this overkill? Or should I just put the volume knob at a very low level?
