    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    My HiFiMAN HE-6: The Tale of Two Cities As of Sunday night, I recorded 2,841 dedicated hours inside the listening room with the storied HE-6. Mating the cans to speaker taps on my monster receiver (1978 Sansui G-22000) is a bit like Godzilla mashing its way through Tokyo or a Dominatrix having...

    Keiko...Matsui? She. Is. Special. Over the years I’ve had a few of her CDs that never made back into my home (friends!!!). I’ll admit to making exceptions to former roommies. But my long-time reserved music & books policy is enforced - you can enjoy here and it stays here. Currently have...

    Greetings All! Anyone see our resident audio guru extraordinaire round here? Thinking of adding a lil” iron as a December treat. Perhaps, a tube phono preamp mm. Anyone lately get a stand alone phono pre from the studio?

    Re: Team Sansui We gotta Sansui guru here in Pete’s Dad...say wot? Thinking about giving my big G some TLC. SoCal maybe? On another note, HE-6 on taps is still addicting!

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    I’ve had no issues inside my living room since 2013: HE-6 via speaker taps to Sansui G-22000 @ a confirmed “benched” 265 wpc. BUT...I watch plug-in, turn-on, volume defeated with rigor. Silent background as well.

    Thanks for sharing, Glenn. Silently grieving over the loss of lives and living areas. Very relieved our brother - and his most wonderful family - are still with us.

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    @Textfeud It is my hope that you'll be able to have both chips & glass as oppose to selling the Yammy for tubes & HE-6. My HiFiMAN's sees duty with both solid-state and tubes. Absolutely love this contrast! I own the he-adapter but never used it on my monster receiver - always straight-to-taps...

    Good eye, jaywillin! 1978 Sansui G-22000 I prefer the one-piece config but wooden rack is 56" wide but only 17" deep. Thankfully, Sansui designed the monster with flexibility for storage in mind.

    That's my aluminum foldable & feather-light workbench (Germany). Have used it magnificently around the home/garage for many years...continues to see multi-purpose duties. Recently, my gears crushed my second audio rack and a coffee table (for overflow gears) within a couple of months of each...

    Bicycle-Fi!

    Thx Wyville. Your days appear to be filled with wonder and adventure, experiencing London and actually living in bicycle heaven...wow! If I were faced with the same decision, I”d choose to buy both the road bike & audio gears “pre-owned” instead of only having one or the other new.
