That's not a bad amp at all. You could do better, but no matter which amp you have you can always do better. Grrr :D

I have searched for long and found no other owners of the x-can who also possess an he-500. For all I know it's a solid amp.

I used to have the WA7 and tried it with HE-500 and it's underpowered. Emotiva is far better. Great for Sennheisers though. Better than Crack with my old HD700. I felt Crack was better for Beyerdynamic like my T90.

WA7 does look pretty though. Best looking DAC/AMP I've seen to date.

I like the aesthetics of the big Woo amps. WA7 looks a bit Apple-ish for my tastes.

No, no. I have a Macbook Air and will never change it. I will only update once every two year to a new one. It's just way more convenient for my professional life. Won't be going back to Windows ever. And the Macbook Air is all I ever need. Just lovin' it.

 

Because I'm a aesthetics guy I like my stuff to compliment each other. Which is why I would buy a silver dac and amp over a black one given the choice. Luckily the Bifrost and Lyr both come in silver. And yeah, I switched some cables so all my cables are black. Is that so weird to do. :triportsad:

Cables have to be black :p Already bought all my cables from Audioworks. Interconnect, USB and heaphonecable. I wanted it all in one place. Because it would match better.

 

Yeah I'm weird.

Don't contradict yourself.  HE-500 is totally Windows XP style.  If you want apple style, go HD800.  :D:p;)

Are you happy with the Forza cables? They certainly look nice.

Damnit. Anybody wants to buy HE-500? I also have wooden cups by Munkynutz for them. They aren't installed yet because I'm a chicken and don't dare to do so. Kidding aside, the wooden cups are actually for sale for costprice :tongue_smile:
