Ugh really? That seems incredibly inconvenient to design an amp that way. I thought your amp had multiple taps right on the back; then you could just pick the appropriate pairing off the Zeros to match with the output tap of the amp.

The early Sinhonia's did have external taps. I have one of the latest Sinhonia's made and they're internal and I didn't see any easy jumpers or plugs just solder. I could be wrong... I'm open minded. Looks like a soldered job.

 

The amps are said to sound best @ 16 Ohms driving high impedance and high efficiency speakers.

My Friend has denon AVR3805 and I am getting EF-6 shortly, will do a compare and update back.

 

Thanks for suggesting denon one's, if they are good it would be 300$ to get an good used one.

On the copper cable tonight. Really great to relax to with its smoothness.

I know some of you have hardwired your HE-6, but has anyone replaced their sockets with mono minijack, mini XLR or something else?

Not me I just made an XlR to banana plugs

I hardwired mine to mini xlr

Has anyone tried the HE-6 out of the NFB 28 balanced. Will this be able to power the HE-6 to an acceptable volume (not talking about to earsplitting volume or its "maximum potential")

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Is it difficult to remove the socket? I broke one of my cable connectors yesterday. I was thinking about installing 3.5mm mono sockets, but might as well hardwire it.

Yes it will, no worries.

 

In terms of power rating and gain, it is very close to my ex NFB-27 which drove the HE-6 just fine ;).

The voltage swing is a bit lower, 19V vs. 22V, but it should not matter for volume, only dynamic range.

If by socket you mean the connectors, then no it is relatively easy. Just be careful and snip the wires before you unscrew it from the headphone or else you will will pull them off of the drivers which could potentially damage the driver. The wire leads soldered to the driver are solid core so they are quite stiff and brittle, treat them with care and you can solder your wires to them. Otherwise you will need to disassemble the driver from the cup to to get access to the solder joint at the driver, which is a PIA (I know because my right ground was snapped off at the joint and it took an hour or more to take the driver apart re-solder and reassemble).

Good luck

Those are the Denon D7000 pads.

Really?

 

That seems awesome.

 

I've always had this weird fetish dream you see.... a pair of headphones.... fed by a pair of monoblock speaker amps.... :D

 

The HE-6 would be the headphone to do that on.

you can get those pads here
