The HEADSIX, a Head-Fi support sales-action - Page 2

post #16 of 917
Ouch that does look like a great offer. I am certainly going to think about it.

Way to go! ... For Jan and Head-Fi.

I'm in! I can live with 100-hour per 9-volt.

The amplifier circuitry in the Move can easily match that of RSA's Tomahawk and Hornet. Now you can get the same sound for less than half the price? Seems like it's going to be one special product, equally popular if not more popular than the Headfive. If I didn't have a Move I'd jump on this.

Does anyone think it will sound like the Move, just without the DAC?

For sure.

its amplification circuitry is basically that of the CORDA MOVE. However, it comes without the crossfeed filter, has no USB-DAC and has no high-current mode (low current mode only).

I just don't want to lose the Move sound, but I love the idea of it being smaller for portability.

Base on Jan's description, I believe this is a leaner and meaner machine. I'd think that it would at least match the Move.

It really does look fab!

A couple of questions spring to mind while I mull this one over:

Will the HeadSix perform well with rechargeables? I have a couple of Maha 9.6v and I think they're slightly longer than regular alkalines, so I'm wondering if they'll even fit to begin with.

Is "low-current" essentially the same as "low-gain"? I'm wondering whether the HeadSix might struggle to drive my 40 Ohm PROlines or 30 Ohm Edition 9s.

Thanks in advance!

Jan, you are a gentleman and a scholar. Nice offering!

I just ordered one in black. I'm going to put my Move up for sale tonight once I get some pics taken.

I will be sticking with the Move, for a variety of reasons, but it's awesome that people will be able to get such a high-quality portable amp for such a low price.

why not compare them first, and tell us which one do you prefer

Oh man, I looked forward for high current mode, but you cant have everything. Again, excellent offer Dr Meier. I had to let H5 slip past, but perhaps this time...

I love the Move, but the size and weight is too much for the type of listening that I do. I just put it up for sale without pics, but will put them up tonight when I get home.
I'll still give you my comparison thoughts once I receive the Headsix.

Been thinking about getting a portable amp for a good while and this one pushed me over. Just put myself in line for a black one! Now the wait...
