and they were all as good or as bad (the he400) as i said to my ears (okay a bit ethousiastic sometimes)!...ask the new owners (especially the new 337 owner)..not one word was a lie or exagerated..not even about the matrix mstage rev. 1 i once had long time ago... ;)

 

but u dont need to believe me..the ones who know better..do..and thats more important to me, as i dont need to prove anything. i got myself a very special rig..soundwise far above what i ever heard until now..whether u believe it or not, is up to u..enjoy ur day.

and guys..ur missing out if u not at least look at what BC has to offer,  if u dont know already ofourse. one could be the perfect amp for ur he6.

In this thread we try to comment on things we've actually heard ourselves.  Not what others say ie.. (rumors):biggrin:  But reading all your previous post - we already knew you liked how your amp and headphones sound before you even heard them. :biggrin:

 

Just because a particular amp was made for a particular headphone does not mean it will all ways sound good together.

For example - take the Senn. HDVD800 amp that was made specifically for the HD800s  Some folks like it a lot (AL)  Some folks don't like it at all.  So you have to hear it for yourself to judge.

 

I owned the Paradox, wasn't a big fan of it.  Not a musical headphone at all, But other folks love it.  So to each is own.  

 

I myself would not buy the Code-X.  To start -  it's an inferior driver compared to the HE-6, HE5-LE and the HE-500.  I'm sure the mods have improved the sound. But for the cost of a brand new HE-6...  No thanks.

 

However, I would (and going to) buy a second HE-6 and get the grill mod done on them.  I heard Happy Campers and decided to me it's worth owning both.

 

Why you need one more HE-6 for grill mod...it take 30 mins to do this mod and entirely reversible, I just did that yesterday and had to business travel near yellow stones, if not I could have mailed you extra grills I have

Well, because I like what both have to offer.  I love the mids on my pair, So great for female Jazz Vocals.  I love the openness on HC's pair - great for Jazz Orchestras.  

 

I just like both..  :biggrin:

Can you please start using punctuation and other basic rules of grammar?

It's very hard to read your posts and that's one of the main reason I stopped looking at the HE-500 thread.

U know i am from the Netherlands, right? And that english is not even my third language (fourth actually)?

I will try to do better, so u wont stop visiting this thread also. I couldnt bare to be the reason of that biggrin.gif

And honestly didnt know my typing had such a huge impact on some of u tongue.gif

But Seriously, i will type slower so i write in more regular english.

Actually another dear fellow headfi'er gave me same tip, but somehow when i start typing i just keep tryping.

But i will do my best. Promise! wink.gif

I am French, my English is bad, too, but I try to respect grammars rules as much as possible. It avoids making things harder for people to read.

This is basics, even in Dutch :D.

This was much better :beerchug:.

 

Cheers!

We're not writing prose here, I'm from Belgium and english also happens to be my fourth language, after dutch, french, and german. While I appreciate a properly written text I'm also aware of the fact that for some people this is a hard to attain goal and I'm appreciative of the efforts everybody makes, it's a bit churlish to start tackling people on grammar and diction. Just my opinion of course.

I bet that DV 337 does sound good. I just noticed it's a dual mono layout.

I purchased the 337 from hifimanrookie, his loss, my gain :-) It's a rebuilt version with a bigger power supply, caps, upgraded resistors...the on/off switch has been moved etc. Sounds absolutely great with my HE-500 and even does a good job with my HE-6. No specs but if I'd have to hazard a guess and with the tubes I use I estimate the power as on par with my V200 (2.7 W into 50 Ohm). Can't really drive them to the level they can attain to get everything out of them but still a pleasurable sound, not the thin sounding horror I expected when I first plugged them in.. A couple of days ago I hooked up the 6 to an Almarro speaker amp and a pair of McIntosh tube monoblocks. Now THAT was something, despite a less than ideal auditioning environment. Good thing I left my cards in the hotel and just set out with a single 10000 Yen note in my pocket.

Yeah that 'powerswitches relocation to the back' thingie was a weird one to me at first..but when i saw the wiring schematics of the amp itself it was so clear to me why the former owner did that..thats whats dedication to get best sound is all about imho..getting the details done...and hearing what came out of that vintage looking classy amp made me smile..and am glad u feel the same way.. Lolz

Am actually thinking of buying a mcintosh amp for my speaker rig that i wanna built later this year as i told u earlier...

So u loved how they sounded huh? Mmmm good to know.. Did u also get the chance to listen to them on speakers? Oops totally oftopic..my apologies my friend.

Yes, I have. Sounds nice at low listening levels, though raising the volume it becomes apparent the presentation is promised but not fully delivered. Playing music I love, I could get on with pleasure. But if I chose to listen critically, the amp lacks the drive to make the cans sing.

 

These views are based on my particular OTL amp and HE-6, but my experience may not differ wildly from others who may have tried.
