No, I really want to! I just can't justify the ridiculous prices. I mean, one good quality figurine could be more than my Mad Dogs in theory. >_<

Well, I'm pretty sure you could get MasterGrade gundam kits for under $250. They count as figurines, right?

Yeah, but I'm talking about the super badass foot tall amazing lifelike figures...

Ehhh... You're taking a 2d thing and making it 3d... Guess it sorta memorializes your liking for the series, but I haven't found the spare cash to buy some yet.

But those cost so much! At least with mecha models you get the fun of building it yourself plus gundams are so detailed.

Okay, but is a $2,600 GSX with an external power supply not enough?

Don't think so. A lot of people think you haven't heard the HE-6 until you hear it with a speaker amp. The GS-X is a fantastic amp, but all the HE-6 wants is power.

Not sure about that. This'll work well though http://shop.emotiva.com/collections/amplifiers/products/xpr5 

 

Look after the link. (Click to show)

Just kidding, don't need that good of one. Probably the UPA-200 and up. Haven't researched speaker amps much, I just know Emotiva makes some good ones.

hehehehheheheheh, I've found a tube speaker amp works best with my HE-6. Any speaker amp should have more than enough power swing to power the HE-6 as most are 12w and above. I found that a tube amp sounds a ton smoother and full than the HE-6 with a SS amp. For reference i was using a Meridian solid state amp and a AudioNote tube amp.

So you don't need 400 watts??

No, though really the best amp is Mains, so what you do is you jam the jack of your headphones into your wall socket. It sounds amazing with any headphone you should try it.

That's the problem you need a power transformer. Pff GSX.

Ssssh, keep the myth well and alive...

but no 8W/32ohm is more than enough to give plenty of headroom for later.

Haha. I've heard it with a speaker amp and it's not the best headphone in the world but it's up there. And man those cans need juice, it's practically impossible to power them with a normal headphone amp unless their balanced (double voltage swing.) The HE 500 isn't much worse though.

Those that have heard speakers would say pretty much speakers are better than any headphone but of course they are more expencive than your average audiophile headphones. 

Well I think the 009 is somewhat better, but considering it costs around 5x more, the HD800 would be the most expensive headphone I would buy. The only easy win the SR009 has over the HD800 is really in the bass department, everything else the HD800 can come close to, if not match. What I'm trying to say is that if I had 10k I'd spend it on speakers.

Audio Technica M30  (they sound extremely similar to the M50s, but are much much cheaper)
