Ef-6 might have noise on th-900 cause high gain and sensitive headphone

On phone so hard to link earlier post in thread. I demoed both those cans on the senn amp at hifiheadphones. Enjoyed synergy with TH900, not so much with W3K.

Tried the HPA-21 today. Which is amazing and I can say its the best amp I ever heard under 6k USD. It pair extremely well with both of the TH900 and LCD3. I will buy it and gonna get a mono 3,5 to RCA coaxial cable for my HDP-R10 and the HPA21 first, the question may not in the right thread but any suggestion on the cable? As I don't see any 3.5 to RCA coaxial cable on sale officially, should I need to custom make one?

Didn't you get such a cable with the HDP-R10?
I got a short one with the the DX100.

No... I don't have such cable when I got the R10...
I'm going to get the Audience mini to RCA coaxial cable. It's $140 for 3 feet. Seems its review and price both good tho...

The EF-6 was made for the HE-6..  Maybe a bit overkill..  Let us know how you like the pairing...

Be carefull with Amps made for orthos that are "too powerfull" for TH900.  I experience myself some HISSS out of the balanced output of my amp, because I am at 8 o'clock with the TH900... while, with LCD there are no HISSS at all.

GG, I just bought the 900 from a fellow Head-fi'er. Saw your post of recabling and curious to know if you are reterminating to balanced or if you will leave it SE.
Thanks

Hello 900 owners,
I should be getting this beauty in the next two weeks. I currently have the Lyr, Soloist and Mjolnir amps. From those who have used/still use the 900 with any or all of these amps, I would love to hear which amp drives the 900 to euphonic heights. Two of these amps are SE while the Mojo is balanced; hence I may have to re- cable/re-terminate the stock to balanced.
Thanks

I'm using TH-600 with Soloist and the combination is top notch. Really, really good. With regards to the Schiit amps, see the post above yours.

The Soloist is a powerful amp too though. Make sure you use low gain.

Tony, thanks a lot. Soloist is truly a remarkable performer. And thanks for pointing me to the post on the "amps for orthos". Don't know how I missed it.

I'm going to be terminating it at the y split with audeze plugs, and getting different bottom cables for SE and balanced.

+1 on the Soloist combo from another owner. I LOVE the th900  -soloist combo. To me it offers the perfect balance between detail & 'fun' sound that works across all genres.

i'd say the same thing about WA6-SE and GSX mK2 with TH-900
