    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    I'm in the speaker amps do it best camp, but i've heard many cheaper amps that are defiantly good enough to justify owning the he-6 (vs somewhat more expensive headphone that's easier to drive). Its more about slew rate then RMS power, basically how quickly the amp and provide short bursts of...

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

    I've owned Bimmer's specially modded m11 => nos11 for about 2 years now. Besides from having been converted to the none oversampling optimized version it also has very high quality eizz 3 pin connectors and all the internal wiring has been replaced with Norne silvergarde. It also was upgrade...

    I have a hard time believing there is a screen protector already on mine. It would have to be very high quality slick tempered glass (because its defiantly glass under my fingers). Also the screen its self would have to be recessed in into the bezel for this to be possible . I would...

    FiiO M11Pro | Dual AK4497 | THX AAA 78 Headpone Amp | 5.15" 18:9 720P | Exynos 7872 | 3G Ram+64G Rom |

    Nice, I was regretting ordering the dd case from aliexpress back when @Carlsan recomended that "SK-M11" off e-bay. You still have the other case coming right? When it finally arrives please comment on which one is better. DD case's back looks so thicck, worried it will grow the pro to dx220...

    Fiio M11 Pro $600 is coming - Will you Purchase it ?

    I hope not. i asked about using neutron pretty early in this thread and the general response was of course you can. Seams like we must buy the pay-pro non-google version of neutron and manually install it. I think like 2 people in this thread with m11 pro are using neutron and i found this in...

    Fiio M11 Pro $600 is coming - Will you Purchase it ?

    sounds like Neutron music player is the way to go on m11, its my player of choice for all my Android devices. One of the best digital EQ's around and adjustable cross-feed. plus i really like how these frequently adjusted dsp settings have their own screen 1 swipe from now playing. once your...

    I read they were having problems with very large capacity cards not working properly do due differences in how much power different cards draw cards draw. They said cutting down to one slot guarantees all 1tb cards will work. seams to me there should have been a solution that let them keep...

    Fiio M11 Pro $600 is coming - Will you Purchase it ?

    Which case exactly. In the other thread a Fiio rep was saying the m11 cases wouldn't fit the pro. Is it like EXTREMELY snug, or just a bit tighter then m11? aliexpress was ~680usd, 20$ cheaper then audio46 and nearly 90$ cheaper then hifigo. I ordered from Audio64 hoping I would get mine...

    Fiio M11 Pro $600 is coming - Will you Purchase it ?

    So I'm on the fence between a few DAP's at the moment, does fiio app have a decent cross-feed function? I know i wont be able to you my favorite neutron player that keeps all the eq and cross-feed on a screen away from now playing. I've got a bunch of real high quality older recordings that...

    NEW - Campfire Comet and Atlas

    I recently atlas used and this driver flex problem is driving me crazy. I'm familiar with the popping sounds a dd driver can make when changing insertion depth, this is something else. As soon as I push them in far enough to get a seal the sound cuts out almost entirely and doesn't come back...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    J2 is by far my favorite amp for the he-6. I was expecting it to be slightly warmer then directly from my NOS 11, was surprised to find the opposite to be true. strikingly crisp.

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    not a viable option IMO, It will play at lowish volumes but will really be lacking definition and presence, kind of deflated. If your planning your upgrade path you will need a better amp for he-6. The cheapest amp i properly liked was the ~750$ Cavalli liquid platinum. The liquid carbon was...

    Hifiman HE-6SE and HE-1000SE announcement-

    Oppo HA-1 has a stated output power of 2000mw at 32 Ohms, which is about as low as you can go and still be viable. IMO the limiting factor isn't continuous power output (typical amp specs) but rather how well the amp can provide extremely fast swings in power. generally speaking this is...

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

    I think the phased out PCM1704UK is a much bigger deal then independent transformers. keep in in mind the R-28 has a lower but more practical output power. R-28 should have tons of power for say LCD-3 or similar, NOS/Master 11 amp sections will only have an advantage if you plan to drive the...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    So i finally acquired a Firstwatt J2 a bit over a month ago, but due to moving i wasn't able to get any time with it until this week. Its not what i expected but I'm extremely impressed. keep in mind I've been using my Audio-gd NOS 11 which has plenty of power and I've tried a large range of...

    [Sold] First Watt J2 - Nelson Pass

    I've been itching to buy this amp since re-buying an he-6 last spring. Going to be the perfect amp to drive Zu speakers next year also. Can't believe it lasted a week at this price.

    ZMFestivus 2018: Chicago 2018 Impressions

    It defiantly did. one of my favorite listens of the day, but there were so many. Cpzzy's dave stack was just a tremendous addition to the event, please remind me the name of amp. That beast drove my modded he-6 extremely well, hardly any tube effect added compared to the other very nice tube...

    Hifiman HE-6SE and HE-1000SE announcement-

    Your going to be very happy, I think I undersold HeadAmp GS-X saying it was on par with nos11 (for powering he-6), it's extremely well regarded for he-6 and i would swap to it blindly given the option. WA-33 will probably do a fine job too and be an excellent contrast flavor wise.
