    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    You don't necessarily *need* 10 W at 50ohms... but it all comes down to what your typically listen at and the headroom/dynamic range of your music. Power is calculated typically as P = IV or P = (V^2)/R When extrapolating from a given power rating, people often assume the voltage is constant...

    Bottlehead Amplifier Discussion / Comparison Thread: Crack, SEX & Mainline

    If you're careful you can unscrew and take it off... but if you're unsure of that, then yeah good quality painter's tape is the way to go.

    Hey everyone, merry belated Christmas! (or Hannukah, or Kwanzaa, etc)
  4. Sonnet Hermes streamer - black (Canada)

    Like new Sonnet Hermes Black Hardly used I originally got this as part of a trade deal and was using it to stream from my laptop to my secondary system connected via ethernet cable, and outputting to my dac. I tried all the general outputs (optical, coax, AES) and had just the tiniest...
  5. Bryston BHA-1 - black, low gain (Canada)

    Excellent condition Bryston BHA-1 Black w/standard faceplate (I think it's 17") Low-gain mod (+8/+2 dB instead of the stock +20/+14) which vastly increases the range of headphones you can use and gives you far more play on the volume knob. It doesn't reduce total power capability though, if you...

    Hey guys, update from @rifi that Saturday is no longer an option. Right now Sunday looks to be the frontrunner. We will close the poll at the end of the week. Also, it seems some of us are really into nice kitchen knives. Perhaps we can bring some steel to show off?

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    I've got one of the unobtanium 4screw early version hardwired blah blah blahs. I've never had anyone knocking on my door offering me $2k for it though :triportsad:

    [review/comparison] Prism Lyra, Prism Callia, RME ADI-2 Pro, Schiit Yggdrasil, Forssell MDAC-2a

    Oh, hah well I suppose if I ever got it into me to write some more, but those pieces of gear are long gone so I won't be able to write anything accurate anymore. Besides which, I feel like the reviewing world has gotten weird these last few years. Everyone is spitting out youtube videos, or...

    [review/comparison] Prism Lyra, Prism Callia, RME ADI-2 Pro, Schiit Yggdrasil, Forssell MDAC-2a

    The three dacs I have in my stable now are the Prism Lyra, RME Babyface Pro FS, and the SPL Mercury. Lyra: airy mid-highs, most easy listening Babyface Pro FS: neutral without being clinical like the ADI-2 Pro Mercury: weirdly feels like the proper big brother of the Babyface A couple years...

    HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone

    My first amp for the HE-6 was a Nuforce Icon2 which was tiny as far as speaker amps go (about the size of a paperback book; leftmost item in the picture below). I later added the Nuforce HDP as a dac (right), their separate linear power supply (bottom), and wired up the matching speaker box into...

    Fostex T50RP Incremental Mods and Measurements

    Somewhere in the basement I think I still have a bag of spare parts, like baffles, cups, maybe a headband. If anyone wants them, you can have them for the price of shipping. Just send me a message.

    @zoobabwa I'm guessing it would either be me, @Beefy, or @rifi But just to start things off, are you sure the connectors are wearing out and it's not the cable? or maybe it's just some oxidation (some deoxit or similar would clear that up).

    It's just a gloss black. Went to walmart and looked around at what was available.

    Moon Nēo 430HA Reference Headphone Amplifier

    My recollection from years ago was that it did lean a bit warm, but not a huge amount. As for a third, perhaps a ZMF offering? or an ETA Mini.

    Hey guys, last minute notice but I'm hosting a bbq/bonfire at my place in Fort Richmond tonight (Friday). If you're interested, send me a text. I probably won't check this board later.

    I've never used one of those, but if you were willing to do a bit of chopping you could simply stick a multimeter inline with the wires and measure the amperage directly.

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    That's such a broad question so I'll throw equally broad recommendations: Bryston 2B - budget power amp, short but wide form factor Bryston BHA-1 - I'm a fan of Bryston in general, good value at used prices, not so much at MSRP Benchmark AHB2 - power amp, super clean SPL Phonitor X - great...

    Hey guys, now with the weather warming up maybe we should plan for another meet/bbq/etc? We've discovered that some of us also share an interest in nice knives, so maybe we'll bring some steel out to share.
