Well, IMHO, that's a massive rip off wink.gif

Supply and demand? And the almighty USD devaluing.

My new HE-6 entry level rig:

 

HifiMAN HE-6

 

Emotiva Mini-X a-100

 

Audio GD NFB 3.32

 

The very minimum required for the HE-6 to sound good. I really love the sound with this setup although I can see myself upgrading this setup it is still the best sound I ve heard off any equipment I own.

 

A review coming soon,  in a week.

 

How will the entry level setup perform? Wait and read :) But not too shabby would be my first impressions :) Cheers guys!

 

EDIT: The picture quality will be improved of course :)

That's a very nice setup there. That Emotiva is big.

For a speaker amp it's fairly small or at least most speaker amps I've seen as there are exceptions. It's roughly the same size as my dac except a bit longer. For under $200 it's a bargain since most headphone amps struggle with the HE6.

True and only 11.4 pounds. It could be that picture. I remember when I had Krell monos, each weigh 85 pounds unboxed.

+1 on that

Even on my over crowded desktop..it fits perfectly.

I only other speaker amp,that come close in the trends amp,but I believe it is a bit more expensive

 

Rawster--correct me ,if I'm wrong?

Never owned the Trends

post #7858 of 14795

Yeah the Trends cost more.  Plus have a few more options like separate power supplies.  But for +/- $200 this little amp is very hard to beat..

So now that you've had it for a while, how did it work out over the Gungnir or V200?
