Now that I bought a big-block iron with Direct Current, I'm getting closer to seeing what the HE-6 holds as promise.

Can't wait to read your impressions with that monster

I have to say I've not the interest in listening to anything else. But speaker amps do an excellent job driving headphones. I'm listening to the 702 65th An. on my speaker amps and the sound is huge.

Anyone ever give the AudioEngine N22 a try?

I've heard a lot of the vintage Sansui gear.  The G22000 is one hell of a beast (something like 90 pounds right?).  My dad has a couple of their old tuners and receivers (not the G22000 though) and also has a Sansui CA2000 preamp.  It's just wonderful.  

 

I haven't tried anything new with my HE-6 in a while, but the Cavalli Liquid Glass is doing a pretty damn good job.  I may try it with an Adcom GFA-5802 in the near future.  I'll let you know if/when that happens and give some impressions.

I'm sticking it in the shop Monday/Tuesday. I can't wait to move, so I can set everything up again - the listening room is but a memory right now, all boxed up. Although, admittedly I have pulled a piece of gear out of the box for a hot minute here and there. 

 

I think I'll get the HE-6 after the move...

Yup, 91 lbs and 101 for the G-33000. I'm very excited, so much to test - Phono, Tape, AUX, mix-n-match the Sansui's Preamp with other amps; the amp with other preamps and so on. 

 

My HiFiMan dealer is just waiting for me to pick up the phone... or email my order. biggrin.gif I'm gonna make Ms.T proud!

Nice. Surprised about direct connection to speaker terminals on a class a tube amp with no resistors. Enjoy

 yeah, I spoke with todd on the phone about this setup and indeed I think he spoke about resistors, but I am not 100% sure about this. English is not my first language so I may have overlooked this detail. I think he has talked about a 10 ohm resistor or something.  it will be the first time I plug a headphone on speaker terminals, so yes I am a newbee at this. but the hifiman sound signature is my favorite. I have tried audeze lcd2 rev 2 and did not like them that much. my favorite part of the sound spectrum of an headphone is the midrange presentation. I have an hifiman he 500. it's my favorite headphone. a lot of people here have praised the he 6 midrange presentation as very good. that is why I want them. and I want to make sure they have plenty of power behind them at my first try. I am on a quest for my perfect headphone and I am realising that it is indeed a long journey. but I am getting real close. with the hifiman he 500, I have truly made a giant step in the right direction where my ideal sound lies.
