The Shindo Laboratory Sinhonia has 4-8-16 Ohm taps; individual gain control. I currently have the HE-Adapter on the 8 Ohm taps; gain @ 50% on both mono blocks.

 

 

Add :  :  I don't have a gain problem; noise problem; attenuation problem. I simply want to improve interfacing the adapter between the cans and amps.

Parts express. Is where I bought them. Also they 10 watt wire wound resisters.

So you need two 10 watt 2ohms. And two 10 watt. 10 ohms.

Also read the other thread. And listen to people like brunk.

I've modified my HE-adapter according to Rob's preferred resistor network, with 6+2 ohms per channel. The speaker load is just below 8 ohms and it gives around -12dB attenuation.
Gives good play on the volume knob with the preamps I've tried on my HE-6/Yamaha M-4 combination. It's my first my soldering job and a very easy operation.

Well done!

Thanks Anda and Alrainbow. Good and straight forward understanding of the topic. Too bad it can't be stickied at the head of the thread.

Are you saying I helped you ? If so wow I am impressed LOL.

Thanks a lot for all the suggestion....will modify resisters on HE-adapter and post my findings.

Posting your findings is a must. As this will
Put to rest the situation for others. And thanks
For taking the time to do so.

It might just be me.  It seems like the HE-6 is being talked about a lot lately.  I mean in about 4 threads that's not related to the HE-6 at all.

Surely, I will post my findings...but it would take some time as I have already returned HE-adapter, thinking it would serve no purpose

post #11786 of 14887
I understand. Just post about your findings

Thanks

That's because it's a kick*** headphone :tongue_smile:

That it is - and it will be getting talked about more once I get a functioning cable for it. Can I say mega review with a Bantam Gold speaker amp, a project Ember, HE-6 with a solid core silver cable as well as a DHC Nucleotide copper one, and Senn HD650s with a DHC nucleotide cable?

Well you've already got your two options on the table. Drop a resistor across the speaker taps or use another set of transformers/autoformers so your headphone load matches the tap. I don't know the amplifier though, so maybe that part isn't important.

 

The nutzo option is contacting the manufacturer and seeing of you can reconfigure the transformer taps so you have something approximating a 50ohm tap.

Thanks, Armaegis. Later today, I'm going to contact my Dealer and see how to switch the amps from 8 Ohm to 16 Ohm mode. Get new resistors. And host a :tongue_smile: private screening.... okay, maybe not. Let's wait and see what happens first. Should know something next week.
