You mean, if I came before sunrise, I'd be greeted by Waffles and Dueland's?! :tongue_smile:

I understand and use similar discretion. I have successfully used libraries at key times/locations in times past.

I'd still be happy to solder your HE adapter at my warehouse (but tell me in advance so I can bring my Cardas solder). Just come to the Coronado meet so I can test out the rest of your gear! Or maybe arrange something else, but will only lug my amp around.

HE-6/Wireworld Silver Eclipse 7 - OCC Silver-Clad Copper (4x19AWG)

Looks very nice Silent One! Would you mind showing a pic of the spades/bananas? From what I can tell, you have a cable that is 4-pin XLR, and another for speaker taps? Is there a XLR->TRS adapter i see in there too? What is that black steel beast on the bottom of the stack? Loving the vintage iron by the way :)

:popcorn:

Thanks. The Sansui G-33000/G-22000 is a two piece affair - the Black portion is the amp, the Silver portion is the preamp. They are tethered and each can be used with other amps/preamps. Can either be stacked like shown or fit together back-to-back horizontally. The latter takes up a whole lot of real estate. Better have a big shelf!

Below on the right is how it looks when pieced together. The amp on the left is big in its own right. :tongue_smile:

I don't have spades or banana connectors. I am using bare wire with Silver solder coating the tips. Any 4-pin XLR > TRS Adapter you may see would be the stock HiFiMan not Wireworld. Though, I'm still sleepy and do not see it in the pix. :biggrin:

I'm already getting used to adaptive seating positions to compensate for their difference. Something that will continue to naturally occur as I settle in with them. 

 

 

I have a HE500 that I have the ww eclipse 6 hardwired eliminating the connecters & need for adaptive seating position.The cable is much more flexible without the connecters & don't hit your shoulder

blades when sitting in a recliner making the phones more comfortable to wear.Great sounding cable as well.

Hardwired - this is something I'm still considering, as my guy (Robert/Aphrodite Cu29) is one of the vanguards in this area. First, I need to see if this is the cable. or if I want to modify this cable further... :evil: 

 

When you've the chance, throw up a pix of your Eclipse 6 cabled '500.'

I find it interesting that, in the grand scheme of things, the HE-6 is one of the least popular highish end headphones between the HD800, LCD-2 and even HFM's own offerings. It tickles the little hipster in me a little bit, but given how well they perform and frickin' balanced they are, it's still a bit of an eyebrow raise that they're overlooked. Yeah, they probably scale THE highest, but you can get away with a cheap lifehack like the Emotiva for a while....

 

Though, a look through this thread and its enormous gear-savvy is a bit intimidating. :p

Indeed it is highly overlooked!

 

I noticed you live in UCSD. Are you going to the Coronado meet in 2 weeks?

post #9674 of 19433

Whoops! I should update that. I'm recently graduated, and I live up north. :( Sounds like a fun meet, though!

That's because the HE-6 is for the big dawgs. :cool:
