Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones - Page 280

Attach the resistor between the plus and minus binding posts (one 10 Ohm power-resistor on each channel). That's it.

Listening to the HE-6 through the speaker taps on this vintage Harmon Kardon 730 right now. Very, very nice soundstage through this one. Width is quite exceptional. Really nice balance in frequency response as well. There's a touch of noise way in the background, but I think most of it is from the turntable and not the amp. Very clean in terms of attack and decay. I like this one!

Nice. Did you buy the HK 730 specifically for the HE 6 ? You can always test if the Vinyl is the source of the noise by connecting a DAC to it .

Alright, since the Xindak I was planning to buy got sold, I have 4 amps in my mind:

Odyssey Cyclops

Exposure 2010s2/3010s2

Naim

Ragnarok

 

What u guys think?

 

I was trying to find any pass labs or first watt for around my budget of 2-2,5k, but I would need a pre-amp aswell then, and I dident find any 230V

No. It's my dad's. Just flew out to visit the folks for a long weekend. I was curious to try with his HK after scoring that other one earlier this week.

The receiver does have some very low level noise with CDs too, but it's not bad. The Burr-Brown chip on this NAD player I'm listening to now is a horrifyingly bad implementation... Makes it hard to enjoy anything.
