All the strengths the HE-5LE has (the refined highs, sweet mids, nice detail retrieval, extended lows with good impact) the HE-6 does with even more aplomb.


Oh man... my HE-5 vulgaris feel so obsolete...

Anyone else get a strange pm from Neptius regarding amping the HE-6?

post #548 of 903

Let me guess - he was pushing the Casea Lyra Mk II?  Neptius needs to somehow learn to contain his enthusiasm about that product, big time. 

 

I have a review unit of the Lyra.  I will be posting a full review once I complete my full review cycle.  So far I'd say it's a nice product, but nothing that I think is extraordinary.  That's all I want to say about it for now, until I have spent more time with it, but I figured I would at least say that much, for everyone's benefit.

Neptius was really defensive regarding the Casea amp in the best way to amp the HD800 amp.  Too bad I still can't understand him.  Can't we have some better admin control on Head-Fi please?

Yeah, I got a message from him too...very wierd and didn't make much sense...

He's probably from the Czech Republic with limited English language skills.  Actually quoted Skylab's endorsement of the amp/dac:

I don't think the mods can prevent this type of unsolicited spam.  Best to use the Ignore function.

post #552 of 903

The fact that he is sending you guys unsolocited PM's, quoting me without permission, is totally over the top, and completely unacceptable. A couple people alerted me to this early this morning, and I immediately asked him to stop.

 

And for the record, Warp, what I said there was a comment, NOT an "endorsement".  I have not formed a complete opinion of the Lyra yet.

What I guess Neptius fails to realize is that his own behavior relating to Casea is far more damaging to them than it is helpful. If I hadn't committed to the actual maker of the amp that I would review it, I would probably just forget the whole thing - I like to avoid unecessary drama.

In my case he was pushing recommending the Beyer T5p, but the PM seems to have morphed into the amp discussion now.  Sometimes I don't understand what he is saying, like about universal setup below.

He has universal setup, optimal for HD 800, HD 600, RA-1 etc. For Beyers, Denons, HD 650, K 701 naturally you need different setup.

 

Simply said, I didn’t miss when I presented that this is very very good amp.

No worries, didn't take it seriously.
