    Audio GD Master-11(Combination from Master 7 and Master 9)

    That's my concern. He6 needs amp that truly has enough power reserve to really sings. To compensate power deficit with too much gain is not the best option. So I would like to know that standard version of M11 (normal gain setting) can drive He6 properly or not.

    Audio GD Master-11(Combination from Master 7 and Master 9)

    @ doyouknowSBmean   Have you ever compared He6 VS He1000 on Master 11?  How much better He1000/M11 to He6/M11 paring?   Has Master11 enough power to push He6 to the max capability?   Thanks.

    Blue Circle Audio "PaG" Custom Headphone Amp - first impressions/ new pics!

    Yes, this is a custom job.  At the beginning I email to Gilbert about amp for He6 after that Toby is the man who discuss with me in detail (for example shallco attenuator, the position of input/output).  It took 2 Months to arrive.

    Blue Circle Audio "PaG" Custom Headphone Amp - first impressions/ new pics!

    Mine has no build in DAC, have only headphone amp with separate gigantic power supply which is the key for the hardest to drive He6.  Supposed to have input:RCA, XLR and output: 4pinXLR, 6.3mm. One Alps volume control.   Let's hope that there's no delay.

    PS1000 Impressions Thread

    One aspect I'm not sure about PS1000 is grain.  When compare to LCD-X, PS1000 has more grain.  I don't know whether it's becuase PS1000 is more resolving (LCD-X may gross over?) or it's because PS1000 actually has more grain.   No reviewer comment to this aspect yet.   I would like to read...

    MCINTOSH LABS INTRODUCES NEW HEADPHONE AMP MODEL MHA 100

    From headphone output of MHA100 is definite not enough power for Abyss and He6, but what about direct connection to speaker tabs output.  Have you ever tried connecting Abyss or He6 to speaker tabs of MHA100?   Thanks

    PS1000 Impressions Thread

    In my experience Graham Slee Solo ULDE works extremely good with PS1000.   Another amps that didn't work for me were Burson HA160D, Soloist, Centrance DACmini CX, Bryston BHA-1.   PS1000 is also the only headphone (among dynamic, orthodynamic in my sig) that has clarity at Abyss level.

    PS1000 Impressions Thread

    Thank you very much Peter. Seems like the difference is minimal (other than soundstage), I think I don't need to upgrade, I'm already satisfied with PS1000's soundstage.

    Mass Ko Bo 394 New high end Amp for power hungry headphone like Abyss 1266

    Those impression make me want to hear Mass Ko Bo 394 .   Could you please comment on bass of Abyss with LCD3 (which you had sold)?   I'm sure Abyss bass is more clear than LCD3 but I find LCD3 has the deepest subbass I had ever heard.   Can Abyss's subbass rival LCD3 (no fazor version)?  ...
