They measure quite a bit better too. By JPS Labs logic, Fang should charge $6k for the HE-500s. blink.gif

Nope, never heard of the abyss at all tbh so I never had the time to look it up etc.
It was on display so I tried it out for a few minutes and it sounded really good.
Then i asked for the price and the sales guy said $6000 and I was like -_-

This was literally 1-2 hours ago lol

Wow, are the he500s that good?
I've never tried any other planer magnetic headphones before other than short demos of the lcd2 and abyss.
It sounds completely different to my current setup, it might be because they're using this huge ass solid-state/dac combo.

Not for nothing-- but the W4S DAC 2 just got a massive upgrade.  I haven't purchased it for mine yet, but there's a significant component upgrade, in addition to adding a DSD module.  Upgrades run from $495 to $1250, and the flagship W4S DAC 2 new runs $2500.

Has anyone used the Hytron 5U4G.They look like sylvan and similar to RCA 5U4G. I picked uptwo matched pairs for like 53.00 so hope they sound good.

How is the 6n5p sounding now?
post #26679 of 30785
I'm still liking them. Very quiet non microphonic tube. The mids are a little recessed from what I'm used to, leading to what I'm calling the sterile signature. Bass is strong and deep. Brass and male vocals are a standout for the tube. They are a poor match with the GEC ( too dark) but a good match IMHO with the 7236. They are not special enough to pay more than the $9ea shipped they can be had for....but interesting to look at and a nice part of a growing soviet tube collection. smily_headphones1.gif

Managed to acquire a GEC A1834 curved brown base and am now listening with HD800 to Tiger Okoshi's Echos of a Note. So far it seems very well balanced spectrally with a great three dimensionality to the music.

The GEC have some crazy synergy with HD800.
