Good to know, thanks!

Has anyone heard the Eddie Current 445 / 2A3MKIV with the HE-6 and could give their impressions? Thanks :)

Yes, great sounding amp but not quite enough. Almost perfect for HD800 though.

Hi guys, I've found a couple snippets on the web but no real first hand feed back on how the HE-6 performs when run out of Bottlehead's Sex amp, is anyone here running this combo or have experience of it? 

 

Any feed back on the combo or pointers to appropriate posts would be appreciated.

 

Cheers

Jamie

I presume you are talking about the 445?
Do you feel it was on the bright side of things? How does it do with modern not so well recorded recordings?
Thanks!

Yup, the 445.

 

People say it's a bright amp, but I didn't find it bright with either my HE-6 or Anax's HD800. Seems to do fine on modern recordings. Not sure how you rate Daft Punks' Get Lucky. I have not heard a bad sounding amp built by Craig.

 

I would still go solid state for HE-6.

Thinking of getting it to replace the WA5. But I suppose the WA5 is more powerful, and HE6 loooves power..

500w monoblocks :evil:

Hey guys, what is the best fitting, SMALLEST, hard shell case for the HE-6? I wanted to take mine on the go with me, but I want to make sure they are well protected and the wooden display box is not at all transportable. 

 

Here is my current portable rig (HE-6 w/Furutech Cable --> Rock Boxed Sansa Clip). It's fantastic! </s>

??????????? does that work?

 

edit: looked at the specs. didn't realize it was getting almost 3W into the 50ohm load *shrug*

Wow Rock Boxed Sansa Clip, i never heard that, is that powerful enough to drive he6 ?
I am going to do some research on this dap/

I stopped using the salsa clip after blasting my ears.Too much power and very limited volume adjustment.

The short answer is no.
