Maybe, but I'm still a fan of Modern Balanced Amplifiers. I have no intention of going back to SE amps if I can help it :3 

 

that said, those SE Vintages amps do look sweet! I'm going to get a chance to hear Matt TCG's like $1000 restored Pioneer at a meet here soon :D hope some one will have a 4pin XLR to SE adapter xD

He's going to lug that 50 pound beast to a meet? Man, lucky you, hopefully you get a chance to run the he4 on it.

That he is! We asked and he agree'd to let us hear it.

 

I will, I've got a SE cable for the HE 4 [a shame to use it on such a nice vintage] but either way I'll compre it to my lovely hm801 and pb2, :3 which is atm my "warm" set up lol.

 

Though I 9

I'd very much like to try some balanced audio gd stuff. Love checking out that website. There's always some awesome new toy with a crazy name/number attached to it.

I might still run speaker taps just to try it out as well.

Yup, the good and/or bad thing about KingWa's gear

 

it always get;s better, which means you will wind up with an outdated amp pretty quick. But for the price point most of what he sells is wonderful! I love my NFb 10ES2, going to be a long time before I upgrade it

Single End, sorry for the Short Hand

 

and the only reason I even went to Balanced amps was the power they provided and the size they offered it in, my pb2 for example can push about 2.5w a channel I belive! 

 

It's nice though to finally have a headphone that really needs and benifits from all the juice 

 

I sold my DT 880 just now so I'm the new guy here offically! My HE 4 should b in tommorow or Tuesday

No worries. I am still learning the lingo around here ;) You will like the HE-4. I don't know how they compare to the DT880, but I hope they are a step up.

many experinced head fi members feel they are a step up, if anything the only improvement they'll have is in Sub Bass and sound stage which would be worth it

I am finding that the sound you get from the HE-4 is dependent on the recording. For example, my Bob Marley album sounds great, but Led Zeppelin sounds the same as they did on my 1984 stereo boombox.
