post #646 of 14887

Are there any measurements (such as those Tyll gave for the LCD-2) available for the HE-6? I remain skeptical.

I enjoyed your review, Kiertijai.  Thank you.  Hopefully I am still on topic if I ask, do you believe a 3-Board Beta 22 will drive the HE6.  My gain is 5 and I normally set my volume knob at around 10:30 or 11 oclock with my HD-800s.  Thanks.

Dear Mr. Green

     Yes I wholeheartedly agree that any objective measurement would add more information to that like for the Audeze LCD-2

     Dear XLR1  I cannot answer this question and I think Larry is the one who know best

     I am ordering a 4 board beta 22 and Ying who will build it mention that the balanced input and output should be able

to drive the HE6.   I don't know about the unbalanced input setup input but in  my gut feeling I think it should.

     For the recable,  I will try my best concerning stock cable vs Twag vs Warren Audio

                             I will try to test the Sennheiser HD800 with Zeus cable with the current setup

     I also would like to have comments from those who have been using the Zeus for LCD-2 because I will have one coming.

     I am also waiting for the one and only true expert comment from Larry and also from Skylab

     I will test that after the burn in as Ms T has just emailed me informing that the HE6 needs some burn in to show its full

potential.  I wrote to her asking to buy the prototype as Larry has mentioned that the prototype is better and more natural sounding.

The Beta 22 / Simga 22 can power any dynamic headphones on the planet, to my knowledge.

My WA22 was able to fully power the prototype HE-6, but it took a 50wpc speaker amp to drive them properly and make them really sing.

The Maggies are pretty close in DB with the HE6 and I would also be concerned about the head amps to drive them properly. The Meir can put 6.5W into that load so it may work. I anxiously await more impressions on the differences from the prototype and new finished product. The LCD2 is easy to drive and works both on my tube OTL and the Meir. People should start reporting next  week and it should be interesting

My HE-6 just arrived, but will have to wait a few hours before seeing whether the 3-board B22 powers them well.

 

Looking forward to selling everything except a single headphone and amp. What that combo will be remains to be seen.

I think just for variety sake, I wouldn't want just one headphone. I really look forward to your impressions.

Yes, I am much closer to Australia now than the US. So, err, where are you?

I would like to see some impressions on even lower wattage amps. I would love to get a pair but am very constrained on amps due to my mobile needs. I have an amp to put out 18 volts at 1.3 watts. It is at the bottom end. It should work well with the LC-2 but. . .

Jealous.. so very jealous. Would very much love to hear the LCD-2 and HE6 to see if it's worth upgrading from my HD650s sometime next year.
