Or you could easily just buy some resistors and have them on your speaker taps like what I did. $20 vs $100 plus you can get much nicer resistors that don't affect SQ.

Everything is external. Just between the tap and HE-6 connectors.

 

This is what I did for my setup:

 

Kinda ghetto looking but it works.

It's upside down, that but that is pretty cool looking! In a retro kinda way. I might look into that when I get up to the level of HE 6 >.>

 
So how does it sound :O any color or are we talking clean and transparent [considering the price is it at least as clean as the Audio GD I was planning to use]

I didn't get any coloration with the resistors I used. Wirewound is what you should be aiming for.

All right, keep coming back and looking forward to you joining the club! Keep your eyes peeled for a used one, they can go for good prices.

Some put them on for peace of mind. Best to try first, then buy if needed.

In a year from now, hifiman might come out with another flagship. Hopefully something even less efficient :veryevil:

Oh man I would hope for that :D that means HE 500 and HE 6 price should drop a little ;3

 
but while I am hear... how does the HE 5LE and HE 4 compare to the HE 6, not in terms of clarity, but in terms of color

HE-5LE vs. HE-6 is a little bass shy, and a tad shrill in the treble. The HE-6 treble is the best i have ever heard IMO. It's so smooth, extended and effortless. Bass can be absolutely explosive when called for, even vibrating the pads and tickling your ear drums, without muddying up the midrange. I'm not sure about the HE-4, never heard it.

The HE-4 would be the brightest of the all.  HE-5LE bass shy?  Not the ones I had..  The HE-4 has good bass as well.  Like Brunk said the treble on the HE-6 is smooth, some say it spikes and can be harsh.  A good amp cancels that IMO.

I don't mind SHRILL as I apprently enjoy those spikes. I've also heard that different ears resonnate to high freqs differently, which leads to a different perception of treble siblance or harshness 

 
anyways
 
I'm hoping to get a Balanced Tube to drive the He 5LE with, so let me ask you guys. LD MK VI+ or MK VIII SE? Which would have a better chance driving the HE 5LE
