I hope you're not serious! Please keep the code-x! The code-x and the HE6 are like fraternal twins, both totl, but so different. I love them both.

To me the Code-x beat can anything out there rather shockinlgy and easily,

I preferred it over the HE6.
Yet, for a more larger Soundstage I prefer hd800,
and more realistically layered Soundstage I prefer an HEK.

All above are in same Total Top level and the Code-x tonality is its strong point maybe above the others in that respect because it is more neutral in its very accurate presentation.

I agree with you..on musicality and natural presentation i still have to find a better can than this on my PaG..but i do have to say my code-x improved considerably when i got the balanced cables (dual mono) i now use..it will blow ur mind...as if ur there..especially the older analog recorded stuff give u so juch more..weird is that the difference in sound with the new digitally recorded artists is not that big..but live queen recordings, classical 24 bits live recordings, ennio morricone soundtracks, beowulf soundstrack..really gives u goosebumps on the rig i now have..

Weird is that i just got a new set of very affordable thick and stiff! Yellow colored LAN cables (cat7+)from a brand who makes rediculus expensive loudspeaker cables to replace my VERY old and dirty/worn out cat5e cables between my switch and between my NAS (my music storage) and sound changed again a bit.

.its tiny difference on very small nuances...but i hope its just my mind who is buggin me now..as..wtf..lan cables cant improve/ change sound..right?? Am so confused now..well back listening to some sweet tunes.. tongue.gif

For my total rig:
Well..u can check my profile (here at headfi) and u can check this for pics and personal impressions:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/710504/blue-circle-audio-pag-custom-headphone-amp-first-impressions-new-pics#post_10368489

Only some cables are upgraded/ replaced by better ones since then:

Headphone: Toxic Cables 'Silver Widow' 22/8 Reference Edition, 22AWG, 8wire, balanced, custom dual 3pin XLR with pure silver connectors, dual mono, exclusive creme colored special sleeving
USB: Blue Circle Audio BC98
Power: Blue Circle Audio BC62 10AWG (2x)
Lan/ethernet: Neyton CAT7+ (2x)

i recently installed a QNAP NAS (external music storage) and a TP-Link 'managed' switch (in metal enclosure) in my rig.

At this moment i am workin on a dedicated 'audiophile' (dont kill me for using that word..lolz) pc..with a paul pang modified MOtherboard and paul pang usb sound card (with own seperate liniair powersupply) among some other stuff in it. But its a work in process! And i have an eye on the uptone Regen.

For software i use: foobar2000 with fidelizer 7.2 and use kernel usb driver (instead of wasapi/asio usb driver)
