I recently had a conversation with a head fier who shall be nameless but this guy has the best stuff money can buy I mean Stax /Senn 800 Senn Orpheous AKG1000 Orthos . I jokingly suggested that an intervention might be in order. What's the point, well he also had the Senn 600. I asked him why this ancient phone was still in this exalted company. He said there is something special about these phones can't put my finger on it but I will never sell them. I also have some nice...
To show appreciation to HF members ( you know you love us) a HF member only custom modded limited edition, limited production LYR with special color/HF scheme available only on this forum .

Let me go on record I would buy a high quality DAC/AMP from Schiit  The Dac should have toslink, coax and usb input Amp should drive HiFi Man HE 6

Orthos be afraid Drawing on founders speaker building experiences a small high efficient...
It appears from reviewing tube data that the GE  6zb7 run a higher heater filiment current then 6dj8
