HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone - Page 614post #9196 of 143847/29/13 at 2:06pmThanks Clemmaster.
Gear mentioned in this thread:post #9197 of 143847/29/13 at 4:27pmI just took the calculator to find out what the measured sensitivity if the HE-6 is, based on Inner Fidelity's number: to reach 90dB it takes 19.69mW. Am I right, that this translates to a sensitivity of about 77.5dB (at 1mW) ?
If so, then it's MUCH lower than spec'ed (83.5dB).post #9198 of 143847/29/13 at 6:38pmpost #9199 of 143847/30/13 at 3:56ampost #9200 of 143848/8/13 at 9:29pm
I just bought a used Krell KAV-400xi to go with my HE-6. It does 200wpc @8ohms so that's roughly 30wpc @50ohms.
I can't wait til it arrives! I can finally have a fully balanced setup and I'll hide in my cave til the next hifiman flagship gets releasedpost #9201 of 143848/8/13 at 9:37pmpost #9202 of 143848/30/13 at 5:52ampost #9203 of 143848/30/13 at 6:13ampost #9204 of 143848/30/13 at 12:02pmQuote:
