Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones - Page 207

post #3091 of 3519

Out of nowhere on a local auction site here in NZ I see an Aleph 3 listed today. Anyone have any experience with the HE-6 on this?

Off the top of my head fellow member 'wotts'...perhaps, he'll weigh-in later today.

Search the Forum, I believe one or two members have talked about it. They go in the US for $1,000-$1,300USD. I haven't heard the HE-6s with the 30 Class A watt Aleph 3 but every Nelson Pass Amp I have heard, vintage and new,  has been very, very good. If the price is in your range I wouldn't hesitate to grab it. If you don't like it, there will always be a market for it. Take a look at the 1997 Sereophile review: http://www.stereophile.com/solidpoweramps/674/

Yeah, I already did search and didn't find anything that useful :)

 

Interesting to know that price point, at the moment bidding has just started so we will see how it goes, but I think it might go for less than that!

FWIIW, in the diyaudio forum there are some discussions comparing the alpeh's to some of the F amps. descriptions give some sense of the amp but of course not as good as hearing it. better than nothing though. good luck

Cheers, I will certainly bid on this one later as the auction proceeds. There is a relatively small market for this stuff here, which either means it'll go cheap or bidding will heat up and it could go the other way. We'll see!

Absolutely good luck. Will be interested in your review if you get it. I had the m2 here for a demo but ultimately was not it for me, but that was more about its voicing. It was quiet and had plenty of juice. I thought about the aleph or an f amp but I had an option already in the house that I preferred.

Anybody have experience with the Technics SU-V550 from the late 80's and HE-6? I stumbled across a brand new amp and i couldn't leave it behind...

Different sound, but the big audio-gd amps would be the better amps. I'm pretty sure the Master-3 is about as good as my Krell (maybe not quite there), but considering it's half the price brand new, it's an incredible bargain.

post #3102 of 3519

The master-2 is every bit as good as the fpb600, maybe even a bit better, but lower in power.

compared to current krell product, every bit as good for 10% of the price.

post #3103 of 3519

Oh yeah -  The Master 3 is a beast.  The Master 10 is a Master 3 with volume control and more inputs.  

post #3104 of 3519

I wanted master 2, but none of these audio gd amps can be shipped to Canada. I already have the preamp for these things.

post #3105 of 3519

Take  the long route.  US -->  Canada.
