preproman, now that you've had time with your re-cabled balanced TH900, how if any different are they?

Even the 10Wpc SA-31 cannot keep up with the 6s need for power :O

You know.  I forgot how they sound with the stock cable.   I would say not much difference if any at all.  I can just use it with my balanced amps..  

 

That's why I get them re cabled anyway..

When I upgrade my bedside rig from the a-100 amp.  I was looking at the ECP DSHA-1

From my early impression, yes.
They have less slam than the 5LEs so, something is not optimal here.
I quite enjoy the lively DP1 with them, though.
I quickly tried the 5LEs (when I took their alpha pads to put them on the 6s): the difference in refinement is stunning! The 6s are sooo smooth by comparison, as if they had no distortion. The 500s were more like the 6s in that as well.

But that's for another thread, back to the 900s now ;-)

before HE-6, i'll either rebuy a grado RS1i (cheapest option), or go for the PS1000s

 

I suggest looking at the Stratus, EC 2A3 or perhaps a ECP amp before the WA22. The Zana I can't comment on.

i wanted a stratus, but im too impatient to simply pay $2600 and then have to wait months for one.

Hey DG, just curious, what's your setup consist of before the DLIII?

i bought the DLIII when i bought HD 650s. i had an entry level pro-ject headphone amp/dac before that. the amp was actually pretty good for hd 650s, but the dac was really bad.

You only have to make a downpayment and then wait two months. Come on DG and join the club!
