    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    If you’ve got money invested in your system as I do stay clear of the 660’s they don’t scale at all with decent gear. I believe this to be a limitation of the 150 ohm driver. I don’t think they’d even scale with a mediocre bottle head crack. I also found they don’t resolve low level details as...

    10.00 on amazon, no sense splurging on stuff that has no affect on the sound. That’s a preamp to the left which isn’t hooked up. I appreciate everyone’s concern but I got this

    It’s also believed that the he adapter box when used degrades sound.

    You should stick to what you know. You use this when connecting to a tube amplifier as it has a resistor inside. You don’t need it on ss power amps.read the he6 thread.

    He-adapter is only needed with a tube amp. ss power amps don’t require it. You just need a cable terminated w/ banana plugs. And a preamp for volume control of course

    Bit of patience is needed with the el3n tubes but the rewards are well worth it. Amp is dead silent in in two tube mode, but still a bit noisy in dual tube. Running senns though two tube is all you’d need. Just a wonderful sounding amp. So much that I’ve have only listened to my AF Affcinado...

    "Overpriced amplification is just as bad as overpriced cables in this "hobby.""

    Anyone curious about this should as it’s been said trust your own ears. That’s why getting to meets and hearing those amps and then decide. Dac’s are just as important but that’s not the topic here. Tube amps are my choice as they just offer a level of transparency & cohesiveness that I’ve yet...

    Prices of tubes are just ridiculous these days. Then you really need to be careful who you purchase from. Make sure tubes are tested, and ask about microphonics. In the end I found my favorite pair and stuck with that. I rather spend money on music.

    The ZDS has hi & low output switch. I've also got a sa amp & it was pretty much the same. I've got friends who have both and they feel the same. I'm not keeping mine as I can justify the cost. They are more similar than not.

    Not much easier. I own both and on my ZDS I'm roughly at 9 o'clock with the 650's and about 10 til with the 660's
