Where its at now the he-6 is turned almost all the way up for where I usually max out the volume for longer, loud listens. But some songs struggle and I know it needs more power for the bass. The bass sounds like it needs to be unlocked by a secret password(p*w*r)
if it doesnt work instead of letting go of the amp I will prob reach for the he-560.
The warmer jumpers will most likely only change the sound slightly. Some even claims as much that it degrades the sound.
Ad for the highlighted part, that's essentially what I did, I sold the HE-6 a year ago and have pre-ordered the 560 4 months ago...
While power was not the issue for me [speaker taps], they sounded very lean on my setup, almost boring, almost too analytical I'd say. [but I do blame my setup for that partially]...
I loved them for all the things they did right - resolution, details, clarity, timbre, precision and tightness but they had a few flaws [above] I did not like, comfort and demands being up there as well.
As it is right now, the HE-560 seems to be the warmer, less bright, less demanding and more comfy... Even if it does not match the HE-6 in some areas, it does outclass them in a few, supposedly - like soundstage width or dynamics/impact...
All in all, I am looking forward to the HE-560 being as or even more so pleasant an experience as the HE-6 was
