**Hifiman HE-400 Impressions and Discussion Thread** - Page 425
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Okamoto, those tube amps seem to favor higher impedance if youre getting such a low amount of power at 32ohm. I would look into something that favors higher current, low impedance which would be better suited for planar magnetics. Maybe OTL tube amps? I will eventually get one too, not too expensive.
Any particular model in mind?
The only one i know is the Bottlehead Crack, but it seems it also favors higher impedance cans.
I'm sure someone can help you though. I'm also not sure if OTL tube amps favor low or high impedance.
In the bottlehead crack manual, as well as on its description on the site, it's saying it's recommended to use it with >100Ohm cans.
Maybe they didn't take low impedance orthodynamics into consideration, i don't know. I know nothing about OTL amps.
Any matrix m-stage love here? I love my m-stage for it's colored/warm sound. That might be what Okamoto is looking for. Has anyone tried this pairing as I'm interested as well. I plan on getting the he-400's soon. I don't mean to barge in here, but I've been eyeing this thread for a while. I suspect it to be the cause of my overwhelming desire to get the he-400.
Got any examples of older trance?
I do and I will post some for you. but how do i embed a youtube link so its not just a link and it plays from this page? "a image url" ?
That album is fantastic! Sounds great in FLAC.
