I have my first watt j2 . I normally use a odyssey stratos extreme. I used it straight up xlr out from ps audio perfectwave mk2 with bridge to amp. I listen about vol 42 on the stratos extreme and about 70 with the j2. What I hear is the j2 is more detailed, beter focus , better microdynqmics .you will be swayed odyssey has better louder bass but j2 is tighter. The j2 is very detailed as well. It's so hard to choose. Straight from dac via xlr the j2 is dead quiet, the odyssey has a very faint noise but when music plays its all good. I'd like to let u know I only used it for some rock,songwriter,pop,acoustic music , no classicl here.

I'd like to add both amps need about an hour to sound best . Initially they sound different.

hello again :D
where do modern av receivers stand when compared to the usual speaker amps advised for use with the he-6 ?do receivers provide less performance/dollar when used for audio only with the he-6.... ie. would getting a dedicated speaker amplifier/pre be of better value overall ?

Anyone had experience of use the vintage amplifier Fisher KX-200 with Hifiman He-6? How it is good?

Several Fishers are mentioned in the HE-6 thread. Be aware that many of the Fisher amp/integrated are transformer coupled amps. Because of that, you need a 10 watt/10 ohm resistor across each output so that the transformer sees a load closer to 8 ohms. Using a 50 ohm load on that transformer will cook it.
