Baby steps... with monoblock headphone amps (which probably have enough juice for speakers anyways)

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


Yes, that's what I mean. Thanks for the explanation. Will probably fix it tomorrow :)

A pair of Nuforce HA-200. They can be used as regular amps (with RCA input and 1/4" output), or as monoblocks (XLR3 input, XLR3 output).

:thumb: If memory serves, members slinging mono blocks for the HE-6:

 

- Happy Camper

- Armaegis

- Silent One

 

Perhaps, a fourth or fifth member that escapes me at this writing...

NFB28 can drive a HE-6 without problem. You do not even need to set High Gain on if your source if loud enough.

Here's a website that will ensure you'll never be satisfied with your DAC.
