I suspect that the HE-500 sounds just as good with any amp that can deliver quality, no matter the topology, good is good. Although it's fun to experiment.

any of you guys considered building your own Q.U.A.L.I.T.Y amplifier according to your specific needs :o ?
the look on my face if I build my own starter DIY amp and troubleshoot some problem in it for weeks because I messed up somewhere but then fixing it and listening to it for the first time would be priceless, imagine the emotional attachment :normal_smile : .

I wish i could..but i lack the technical knowledge and lack the money for the very expensive professional equipment to do it and test it....so i let someone else do it for me..but he let me hear every step he did by i think more then 100 mails..so i was very well connected to the built ..and it turned out With very good results if i may say so. But i respect people deeply doing it themselves wink.gif

You boys and your capacitor envy, always showing off and attempting to one-up each other.  Take it to the gym, why don'tcha ;)

 

Meanwhile, my Li'l Lyr and I will go strolling down Happy Lane to pick up pair #3 of my HE-500s :p

(gonna be a long stroll, as I haven't even gotten the shipping notice yet ;-)

The combination of the smooth, slight medium centric sound, and tube of the Project Sunrise makes the Eric Clapton unplugged recording to sound absolutely JAW DROPPING.

 

This album doesn't require speed lightning trescient respond. It needs realism, Thick voice, smoothness and balance between the definition/smoothnes on the mids. That's exaclty the strengh of the He-500 to me.

 

I've the feeling that the He-500 has been designed for live accoustic music. I'm not sure that the more detailled HD800 or HE-6 would take any advantage on this.

Size matters.  I know HiFi will agree.  For Stan it's probably all about technique and overall execution ;)  Somehow that's related to the HE-500s.  Oh yeah!  They've got size and technique, with fantastic execution!

I would like to diy one of the firstwatt amps, either f4 or f1j, but I can't seem to find a parts list, just the schematics.

GE-500 synergises just as good with AiC unplugged as Eric Clapton unplugged
post #14429 of 14628
My definitive eargasm track is 1978 by smashing pumpkins, something about th way the he-500 plays that track is just so delicious. Hearing the same track through the same setup on the hd800 didn't have the same appeal.

You are one year ahead of the real name of that track.
