Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones - Page 195

Got it, thank you!

 

(just for clarification, you do mean 160wpc or am I looking at the wrong number? )

 

Output power 
(both channel drive, a sine wave continuation output, 20Hz - 20kHz)
100W+100W (4ohms) 
80W+80W (8ohms)

mmm my mistake. I was going off a quote by someone else as I got too lazy to look at the spec sheet again.

 

That would be 80wpc which should still be okay. The quality of the amp is a separate subject which requires listening to know...

lol uh oh. I'm very fond of the amp so that doesn't worry me as much.

Thanks

The Project Ember uses an external power supply, so I believe it would be a matter of finding the right supply for your area's voltage. To be sure, though I sent Jeremy (from Garage 1217) an email to get a definitive answer.

EDIT: I heard back from Jeremy. If you're outside the U.S., when you order, you just need to specify your region-specific power cord, which is an otherwise normal IEC-320 type found on most PC power supplies.

Gosh mate, thanks for doing my leg work for me. 😃

So, is the HE adapter from Hifiman a good adapter to use to listen to a full speaker amp with my headphones? It is kind of pricey $99 but worth it if it is a good product as I could buy a good $200 stereo amp that would be much better with the HE-6 than an equivalent $600 headphone amp, it appears (solely based on reading threads at this forum).

 

Edit: And now I am aware of Project Ember which seems to be a better solution...a mega powered headphone amp with no need for an adapter for $330. Very nice.

Disclaimer: I own a Project Sunrise II and love it with my modded T50RP and as a pre-amp in my Class-D experiments. Other than that, they were a pleasure to deal with, very helpful as I built my PS II and deserve better awareness all around. Frans, the principal designer, has an excellent website, http://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/, that does a great job of explaining head-fi electronics.

I own ember project amp pairing with the He 400.... Its a marvellous flexible amp.... I am very interested to know if its capability include driving He 6 with beauty and ease ? if someone know i want to hear some opinions.....

Im driving the HE-6 with my Auralic Taurus MKii which has 4.5W of output in single ended. I do think it is an amp that is suitable for driving the HE-6 to high volumes without clipping.

Thanks for shareing!

I like the HE-6 on the Taurus quite a lot too :)

http://www.audiophileexperts.com/en/linar-audio-a105-power-amplifier.html

 

linar audio a105 stereo pure class A amplifier. 50watts rms x2 into 8 ohms. 65 pounds.

 

from the founder of simaudio, victor sima. the shop is located in Ottawa Canada. very small factory and he has only one dealer in montreal.

 

http://linaraudio.com/en/products.html

 

A115 Stereo MOSFET Power Amplifier could also be a great candidate to drive he-6. class a/B 150 watts into 8 ohms.

 

they cost 8500 bucks wich is half the price of comparable luxmans, esoteric, musical fidelity. they are cheaper cause the guy wants to stay very small and he only sells in montreal and does not care. but you can find these amps sometimes on canuckaudiomart.

 

I want the 50 watts pure class A. I am spotting for a used one.
