Oh that's not the amp I'm building though. That is a very nice amp from McIntosh. My pics of the F5 are in the "spoiler" so as to minimize thread clutter lol.

I listened to the 452 with the HE-6 and just gawked. Certainly not for a headphone but the experience was thrilling.

The clarity and breathtaking bass was effortless from this 98 lb. 300W per channel monster of pure sonic bliss :D

 

 

What other amps did you try at the shop?

Some Anthem and Classe amps. Both brands turned out to be quite pedestrian, but not that McIntosh beast. It was soooo sweet (as in awesome)!

Yeah I've actually been eyeballing some VU meters for it lol, but most are a chintzy LED type. I have seen some round analog ones, but I just don't have the tools to go through a 10mm thick aluminum faceplate without totally mangling it lol. I'm sure Front Panel Express would do it for a pretty penny though. Hmmm...

Shocking statement #2

 

The Leben CS300XS is gorgous with the HE-6 (using HE-adapter)

That's a lot of power. My 50wpc tube amp consumes 185 watts.

The spec sheet on mine says 30-1200W power consumption :bigsmile_face:

 

$1500 means I don't need to buy a heater for this room. What a bargain!!!

That's 1.2kw max. In LA it costs 20.3 cents per kwh (kilowatt hour). Not bad.
