Bring back lots of smokes and booze

That's very cool!  I hope they find a happy home with you!

In all honesty, even if the sound blows me away I kinda doubt I'd keep them. I want to experience summit-fi, but can't really justify sinking that much money into it. I'd probably sell them after a bit and be happy with my more mid-fi offerings. Although we'll see. Maybe that'll give me the incentive to finally finish building my b22. I have three boards all soldered but haven't tested, and I have plans to wire them in an active balanced ground design like in Jan Meier's amps (and like the custom one that I built for digitalfreak).

Quick question, why the HE-6? Plenty of other high priced cans around why Hifiman and why a can that's natorious for being hard to drive? Why not the HE-500 instead or maybe a nice used Denon D7000?

I'm not buying; it was offered to me in a trade.

I'd be interested in hearing them with the benchmark dac  it is supposed to drive anything

My D-5A will drive them, guaranteed.  Its headphone amp packs a punch.

I'll be in town Monday night.  My availability is uncertain, dictated by the whims of wife and children, but if anyone is getting together that night, I'll try to make it out.

This coming Monday (Sept 3rd)? I might be free later in the evening. Anyone else?

I'd be willing to host at my place (Fort Richmond, literally a minute away from the U of M). BBQ anyone?

Argh, so the HE-6 was supposed to arrive at the border depot yesterday, but it's still "en route" today... at the very latest I might drive out tomorrow morning, but I really don't want to drive through the long weekend rush frown.gif
