What about the white label with numbers on it? Is that normal too?

Songmic, is there a reason that you are so suspect of your set?

You really keep Spaire amps in the trunk. Lol. That apt really must be out of room. But I give you your inventive.

I've gotten use to this once-a-week ritual (The dance) of moving things out and back in 30 minutes later... great exercise. :normal_smile :

1. If I remove the earpads off the HE-6, this is what it looks like on the inside.

 

 

Is this normal? I'm guessing that the shiny plate below the mesh is gold, but what is that think piece of black sponge (?) that is covering a quarter of the diaphragm? This black sponge is on both earcups, placed in the upper quadrant. Do your HE-6 also have this black sponge cover, or is mine weird?

 

Also, is there anything else unusual about my HE-6, compared to your HE-6?

 

2. Is it supposed to be this difficult to replace pads? Each pad has four protruding ledges (?) for holding the pads in place. It is easy to insert the first 2 ledges into the cup, but the third one becomes hard, and the fourth becomes is really hard to properly fit, since I have to apply a lot of force to somewhat bend the earpad while keeping the other three ledges locked in place. Is this just how it's supposed to be done?

The white label shows that your pair of HE6s' drivers were made August 12, 2013, and is the 27th/28th drivers of the batch that was made in that particular run.

Are the amps heavy like more than 30 pounds. . And do you use a hand truck. .? The amps in my office are aragon,s

4004mkii is about 50 pounds 1pc. And two aragon 8008bb. They are 85 pounds each. I cannot imagine changing them out daily. And the krell at home is 150 pounds.

Wheel-o-rama...

 

I own a hand truck, three kinds of dollies and a handful of musician cases with wheels. :D

Wow are you prepaired really !! When I put the amps and speakers in my office on the second floor me and another guy carried all the stuff up by hand how stupid I was. I am a contractor and have dollies and hand trucks . But I was worried about damaging my stuff . The bass cabinets weighted about 60 each but the woofer towers weighed about 200 or more each. I ended up brusesing good a rib from the amps and speakers . I am almost done setting things up and almost healed.

How are you guys even allowed to have this stuff in your offices at work?! I constantly have to deal with people which makes it impossible for me to have this stuff at work.

I'm always amazed at this same thing. The last few jobs I held, after hours would have been the only possibility. For those that can get away with it, cheers!

I'm pretty much my own boss and I can't even do it. I have no idea how others can.
