Which ones?

The Dark Star, Beta 22, Leben CS300XS, Pinnacle, and one of the Audio-gd's (Forget model).

I'll say I did enjoy all of them, but speaker taps have yielded better results.

 

Though, the Dark Star and HE-6 is a heavenly pair, IMO.

Yep. I can vouch for the Dark Star and HE-6 as well. Great pairing!

Yea I'm thinking about getting rid of my Lyr for the Mjolnir but I'm not sure yet. I don't plan on owning the HE-6's I just have my HE-500's and LCD-2's so it's prob not worth the upgrade but I'm still considering it.

If you are happy with the Lyr and don't have a list of things you'd change... hang tight.  Change for change can be fun, but expensive.

Yea I think you're right, I rather buy some new tubes or a line conditoner and a Q audio cable for my HE-500s

Take your time and enjoy what you've got. It's a long audio journey. biggrin.gif

Yes,I'm in the same boat as you.....

 

and ,to make matters worse..just got a nice pair of T1's a few days ago...

 

Still,,.....,would love to know how, the He-6's sound with the Mjolnir

post #475 of 3273

I'll be sure to report on the HE-6 when mine comes back from a west coast visit. I've been using the Mjolnir with my T1s and so far it's really awesome. I don't think any of my other amps have produced this type of full-on sound. I first said it was like "the amp grabbed the cans by the throat, blasted a firehose of music into them and started making love to my ears."

 

Or something like that. ph34r.gif

 

 

Either way, I'm very impressed so far.

Even though you have a Beta 22? Those are strong words...

The ß22 has always sounded a little thin to me but I can't put my finger on why. When time allows, I'm planning to check all the solder joints again. For the most part it sits under a cover.

HI Wotts,

Well---hope the Mjolnir/T1's,has the same affect on my ears---that will be a first for me,but hey,open to anything-within reason

Also,Looking forward to your impressions with the he-6

 

Tnx,

Mike

Oh dear. To hear of this kind of lascivious behavior from the Mjolnir - from a brand I formerly equated with big-block V8s - is disturbing.
