Definitely echo those sentiments to a great group who not only helped me with my HE-6 journey but are helpful to everyone who wanders in here........

It's thanks to this group who got me interested in, then sold on, not only my HE-6 (best headphone I've ever dreamed of) but running it out of speaker taps, which simply put took a great headphone to an incredible level.

Looking to make some major upgrades. Starting with the HE6s.

 

I'll be looking into speaker amps but I would love to have a tube amp as well. Originally paired my HE500s with the WA7 but was disappointed with the sound and ended up selling the WA7. I've been reading positive comments about the WA5 + HE6 pairing so I may explore that option. Any other tube amp recommendations for the HE6s?

3W - not going to cut it.

 

Better option for a tube amp to drive the HE6 would be the WA5 (8W via K1K output). I can vouch for this combination working very, very well.

The Silver Widow cables I have for me HE500s have a 4pinxlr so the K1K output would definitely be utilized. Leaning towards the Wa5 because they'll work with my LCD2s and perhaps HD800s in the future as well.
