And an update on my rig..i just placed an order for another upgrade again..check my sigature and u will, once again, read an 'awaiting'. biggrin.gif

Damn my wallet is really cursing at me now!!! biggrin.gif

It's only money.  As long as you are happy,  it's totally worth it.  Spend some more bud.  You need to go for the ultimate...

I hear more punch and presence down low, more dynamic than from my Vio V200 on the relative same volume level.
I use Audiolab MDAC between my Marantz CD player and amp that control the volume.

:eek:..  I heard that people drive HE6 with speaker amps but not HE500

Kudos to you

What is the cheapest HP amp....that do these cans justice.

 

When I say cheapest, I mean cheapest and still get the most out of these.....run them to pretty much their potential.

The Lyr would be your best choice.

If you don't mind a little DIY for an adapter, Emotiva Mini-X will more than do the HE500 justice while meeting your cheapest criteria.  :D

Personally, I prefer Mini-X over Lyr strictly cuz of the sound of pricing.  One note though, the Mini-X will be for the HE500 alone while Lyr will drive other HPs quite well.  Plan ahead and decide.  Gluck.

If you had the chance just try speaker amp with your HE500.
You'll be surprised just how good these HP can sound wink.gif

Just be careful with the volume control. Turn the volume knob all the way down then start turn it up slowly until you reach the desired level.

This is why I chose the Emotiva mini-X a-100 too. That and I like that its a good match for my Denon AH-D5000's where as I have heard the Schiit Lyr is not.

post #13049 of 14679
