I love the HD800 and the phonitor has served me well connected to those phones -- hell, I still love them! In fact today I came home from work and fired up that combo, put on some Mahler and then Chopin and told my wife how much I enjoy it. The problem is that when I fired those up I also fired up the F3. I just let it warm up for few hours while I listened to the HD800, then ate dinner, put my daughter to bed, and now I am back with both systems hot and ready and as much as I try to stay with the phonitor senn combo, whenever I pick up the he6 I feel like I found what I am looking for. Granted i switched music to more fun Friday night bass driven electronic music and popped a Guinness so that may play a role too. Still right now I am enjoying things  too much to change it and do serious comparisons, but in any case I just have to say that with the F3, I think found my HE6 nirvana. 

My HE-6 Nirvana

 

Wadia transport=>ST Glass Fiber=> Wadia DAC=>BMC (DAC) pre=>Accuphase P-102=>HE6

Sony Vaio=>USB BMC DAC1=> Accuphase P-102=>HE6

 

+ Horse Heaven Hills Merlot!  SUBLIME.

Its been nearly 2 weeks since I've sent my HE6 for warranty replacement. Very good communication from the customer service team so far but no sign of getting a replacement sent back anytime soon :(

 

Miss HE6 so much.

I'm a little relieved to know I'm not the only one waiting for a replacement. Must be awaiting a batch of drivers. I wish they'd communicate with us as I've gotten one contact in a couple weeks. Waiting for tracking number from China. That was a while ago. I'm missing mine too as not even the 500s can hold their own against such an outstanding performer.

I heard from Ms T this morning and it's going to take several more days before they can start doing replacements on HE-6s. Patience is best shared. wink.gif

Yea I got the same message, several more days of waiting sadly.

I don't drink but here's my HE-6 nirvana (*so far = still searching*):

 

Hi-rez FLAC/Audirvana Plus -> Lampizator 5 -> EMIA 71A linestage -> Blue Circle SBM monos -> HE6.  All cabling Stefan Audio Art...

 

No need for wine with that...

Looks like a very serious rig there...  Did you get the HE-6 hardwired?

post #8348 of 14883

Not yet.  My HE-5s are hard-wired.  As you may have gathered, I'm still on the fence about the HE-6s.  By which I don't mean I don't think they're great - I am waiting to really feel they are unbeatable - then yes, the hard-wiring would be the final step... It's a bit dangerous, as I understand, with the delicate wood...
