Add me, please. Happy HE-6 owner here.



Audeze vegan pads and bronze wire mesh grill mod.

Favorite chain so far is Gungnir -> DIY B1 -> First Watt F1, but I also use a variety of speaker amps including a Parasound Zamp V.3, Carver M-200t with an integrated Lightspeed Attenuator and a Parasound HCA-1000A. Coming soon is a DIY F5...

Still running the stock cable. I'll eventually do some replacement there, though I haven't decided what yet. Fuzzor mod yet to come, as well.... So much to do, so little time...

Will this do to pick up my membership card?  Anyway, subscribed to the thread!

Yes i believe so..I drove a he500 with this particular 14kg heavy complete dual mono amp without any sweat...volume never went over on 21:00 position.. But it could be turned up all the way to 18:00...and.it sounded heavenly... Miss him already redface.gif

To my own very big surprise when I first tried it:  yes it does.  Couldn't believe my ears, I hadn't purchased it with the HE-6 in mind.  Dual mono design OTL, the maker is not clear on the output and there have been several revisions.  Also, mine was customised (hifimanrookie knows the details as I purchased it from him).  I can't be sure about power output but it's certainly >1 WPC into 50 Ohm.  With the 6 I usually listen with the volume knobs (1 per channel) at about 12.  I stumbled over a review where the reviewer met the builder in China and it appears one of the headphones the amp was tested with at some point were the K-1000's (obviously with a different connection).  If it can drive those....  But as I said, no doubt for the HE-6, I use Tung Sol 5998 power tubes and either the RCA 5693 or the Tung Sol 6SJ7.  Sounds very neutral, quick, with just a bit of warmth added which is great for the HD-800.  What impressed me most and the reason I purchased it despite it being virtually unknown was a pic of the internal wiring: point to point, extremely neat, good soldering.  Look here:  http://www.head-fi.org/t/219504/darkvoice-337-a-review/890 It's my first tube amp and as far as I'm concerned a great deal.
