I'd love to, but this "magical" synergy with the HE-6s seems way over blown. Is the WA2/T1 synergy great, yes...does it transform them into other headphones...definitely not. And the serious issues I had with the HE-6s would not be "fixed" with an uber synergistic amp methinks. It would have to really be too coloured for that (turned up bass and tuned down treble among other things). I think I've dispelled (at least to me ) the lots and lots of power myth, so not sure what else is left?
As well, the HE-6s do not scale high because they are so revealing, that's the HD800's problem...the HE-6s are just really too inefficient to be driven by run of the mill stuff. Again, this is from an owner who still holds them in very high regard and had them for over a year.
