Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones - Page 63

post #931 of 3549

looks like the silent one will have no headaches with the HE-6.

Would it be fair to say that if an amp does well with the HE-6 it will also do well with the HD-800?  I guess a warm amp (i.e., that's why I ordered the Darkstar) would tame the treble in both of these two - in the eyes of many - treble happy headphones? By the way, I've also kind of noticed that if the HD-800 does well with an amp, so will the T1.

This headphone has become my Moby Dick that I just have to finally catch...but the critter is so elusive and cunning!!! By the way, I love the HD800s and T1s with the Decware CSP2 in large orchestral works...but I will only be able to dismiss the HE-6 as less than great for classical when I am finally able to hear them properly driven. But it will be the darkstar or bust since I'm not spending more money on the beast. If I'm unable to climb K2 I'm moving on to Mt. Everest (sr009 and blue Hawaii).

captain hook is obsessed with Peter Pan...Captain Ahab is obsessed with Moby Dick. Well, you can always say that the HE-6 is my Peter Pan.

Ray Samuels e-mailed me letting me know that the darkstar should be shipping in two weeks. HE-6: be afraid...be very afraid; a black tsunami with gold side plates is headed your way.

This has to be the most intriguing and entertaining thread on HF to sit down with a bowl of tea on a daily basis. The intrigue and pursuit of pairings has me wanting to bring these cans into my inventory.

 

@ preproman

 

Tales here of Moby Dick just prompted me to watch/listen to and post Ramsey Lewis' vid - "Fish Bite." biggrin.gif

Oh, I'm having fun alright...the problem is that each joke is costing me at least a thousand bucks...if the darkstar fails it'll be a joke for the ages!

Well, if it's any consolation, the Soundtrack to the film "Soup For One" by CHIC is simply stunning!

Going broke...eating soup for one...all alone...inside an empty home. Lyric references aside, it's a great track! I'm almost certain you'll tame the HeManCans...

I'm in my 40s, so if it has nothing to do with classical music or or anything pre-90s I'm lost. I know...I'm pathetic.
