This is funny that Xindak amps came up.  I too am looking for a "reasonably priced" speaker amp or power amp to exclusively drive my HE-6.  In my research I came across the Audreal PA-20.  I found out that it was a rebranded Xindak amp.  I then searched for Xindak amps and came across Cattylink.  I was floored!  I couldn't believe that the PA-20 was only $563 like you see.  I checked shipping and total cost out the door was close to $1000.  I then did more research and...
Not a dumb question.  As long as they aren't super loose to begin with, you should be fine.  You will be the best judge of it but if I do as you suggest, mine stay on my head just fine.  
I'll be there around 3:30. Bringing everything in my previous post. Do we need anything else?
That would be great! I have a 6SN7 adapter for my Project Ember. It would be fun to tube roll.
That would be amazing!  There's nothing like hearing gear first hand to help the wallet get lighter.
Anyone have a Yggy?  One can hope!  
I'm in the same mindset as you.  I have a Pioneer Spec 2 which I have used the HE-6 directly off speaker taps.  This is with a resister network.  However, I usually use my Project Ember w Supercharger and an ECC88 w 0.1 output impedance.  Tonal balance is great for extended listening.  It kicks pretty hard too.  I can't wait to hear how the Carbon sounds with the HE-6.   If I get a chance to hear a yggy and rag and am blown away I might swing for those down the road. 
Just for giggles I took the Tidal high fidelity test and got 5 out of 5 correct.  I haven't really used it that much but the artists that I looked up weren't there.  I'll have to try again.
I'm in as well.  I'll bring modded HE-6, Alpha Dogs, Project Ember, JK Ciunas Dac.  I'll need to hook up to someone's computer as the Ciunas is USB only.  Is there Wifi available?  I usually use Spotify as it's a great way for people to hear songs that they know (the quality is not that bad for the type of music I listen to).
I too would LOVE to hear these! I'll bring my modded HE-6 to see how they fair. Scottsdale also works well for me. Keep us posted please and let me know if I can help in any way.
