I was just wondering Tom, how does your original HE 90 amp sound, compared to these modern day creations?
@Larry. I have your amp and p/s cushioned real nice (italian expression from the Sopranos) together in a Samsonite rolling carry-on (not suitable for shipping) I'd have to rebox them for you, Kove-style. Tubes, hardware and disc footers in a Mouser box.
And, now that you mention it, even though all of the hardware is there, the 2 plexi-glass shields are AWOL.
I will have to do something real nice for you in the near future for allowing us this loan and screwing up yourself in the process.
That's because you are a giver, and not a taker!
I no longer own the Hev90 as I sold it a couple of months ago with its partner HE90.
The Hev90amp would hold its own against the newer amps when used with the HE90 & some aspects even better then the newer amps.
Lets face it senn designed it as a system.
Headstage was wider & deeper behind your head with the HEV90 .
There was also alot of unplugging & switching of amps with all the headphones ,leaving electrostatics plugged in letting them stay energized
also effects their sound.
One more question Tom, The Original HE 90 headphones, did they only come as a "System" (Amp/headphone)?
And are the newer HE 90 headphones (the ones that were put together from Surplus parts like, 5 years ago) the same headphone as the old ones?
I guess what I am asking are the HE 90 in some way like the R 10, older models, bass lite, newer models bass heavy? Or do the old and new HE 90 headphones sound the same. Again thanks!!!
