now that ive heard the LCD-3s and the SR009s. i would say that a properly amped HE-6 is a poor mans SR009. i dont even think the Dark Star was a good match, they had no bass impact and the highs were pretty harsh. but as soon as we hooked them up to a Beta 24 that i took with me, holy cow, they sounded very similar, though obviously the technicalities werent as good
tomorrow i hope to buy one he-6
Im not sure the B22 will be as good...but i certainly dont think it will be bad lol
but seriously, i dont see how people keep saying the Dark Star is such a good match for the HE-6s, i thought it was a mostly terrible pairing...those phones deserve so much more!
