    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Though “vintage amp” is too broad of a term to search for and I’m not sure if I am overpaying for old junk or something good. Currently I only see a 2535 adcom for $225 and the 545 which are $300+ which seems a lot higher than what I saw a few months ago.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Thanks for the info. I'll be printing various configurations this weekend to find a preference. Thanks, I made the appropriate adjustments to the 3d models and hopefully my 3d printers can produce decent results considering they're about 3yrs old.

    Yea, what I had from other resources was 85mm diameter but thickness is still out there.

    Thanks! It does help as I'm comparing measurements from various sources.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Does anyone have the exact dimensions for the grill? I'm looking to 3D print a variety of grills to fit my taste but I'm not able to locate any specifications even in the Hifiman modding thread.

    FOUND: Cavalli Liquid Platinum or vocal focused amp

    I have been recommended the Liquid Platinum as a vocal focused and musical amp. I'm open to any other offerings as a change of pace from my lifeless topping a90/d90 stack. I live in Los Angeles, California and can do local pickups. Please send me shipped pricing.

    Topping A90/D90 He6sev2 to something musical

    Thanks, I'll look out for the CLP but I don't think the Gilmore has enough power for the He6sev2. Even at mid gain and at 2 O'clock the amp is plenty loud. At high gain I can hover at 11-12. I don't think it should be only 1W. With balanced In/Out it's 6400 mW x 2 at 32 Ohms and 1000mW x2 at...

    Topping A90/D90 He6sev2 to something musical

    As much of a skeptic I was, the reviews were right. I didn't know what "neutral" meant until now and boy is it not to my taste. I'm looking for something that is more musical, mainly emphasis on vocals and detail if possible. The headphones I have are He6sev2 and HD660s and with these I have...

    FS: A90/D90 stack *sold*

    The pictures don't have the MQA logo so I don't think it is. Pretty good price for the combo. I would have jumped on this if I didn't already have the A90; just need the D90.

    [WTB] Topping D90(silver pref)

    I am also open to other DACs within the same audio "hype" but not looking for anything over the top for a casual hifi. Can do paypal or local(Socal).

    Topping A90 and BasX.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Man, I'm starting to question whether the He6sev2 I got fell subject to QC as it seems like I'm the only one who doesn't enjoy the combo.

    Weird, read in other posts the preamp sucks but I don't really have much to compare for myself.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Seeing a few of you enjoying your He6sev2 with the A90 makes me feel like I'm the crazy one. Tried it again after a week break of it and it still hurts my ears. Was considering an adcom 545 but not sure if $250 is a decent price for it. Is there a better choice for reasonable price?

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Bit beyond what I would ever spend on an amp. I'm tempted to wait and see what this year has planned.

    Topping A90

    I can't say I have any evidence to back my claims but for what it's worth I wasn't expecting a difference, I just noticed it. Maybe some day I'll gather some friends and do a blind test and hope I'm not crazy.

    Topping A90

    If they were both ideally implemented should there be a difference? I understand XLR can pass more power and has lower noise at longer lengths or in general, but I was not expecting it to sound noticeably different. I even swapped out the cable for a "premium" one from monoprice but no...

    Topping A90

    I did the same exact thing and purchased 2, one from apos and the other from shenzen. I'm pretty sure you've figured by now but they're essentially the same considering their shipping packaging are identical and it's likely Shenzen Audio is just the front they use for Amazon. That being said I...

    Topping A90

    I was about to say somehow the XLR in is definitely better than the RCA in the A90. This morning I wanted to see if there was a difference between the Schiit Modi and my Asus essence DAC and at first I thought there definitely was a noticeable difference and the music wasn't scratching the itch...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    1. I have removed the gill before but it wasn't for me. Sacrificed too much detail for some soundstage. 2. Haven't tried gauze before but I can't say it's really a permanent solution? Yes I have the BasX with the jumpers and in "amps that can drive he6se" post I mentioned it really wasn't for...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    Money!! lol. I am at the point though where I've spent more on the equipment to power the headphones than the headphones themselves but I guess it's mainly in my poor choice of combination. I think the closest thrift store near me would be the salvation army and goodwill so I guess I can give...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    After finally spending some more time with my He6se, basX, and A90 I can conclude I am pretty disappointed in the He6se with both amps. I have done tests with my siblings and cousins, all with no prior experience with high end audio gear and a pretty strong consensus, the he6se hurts their ears...

    Amps that can drive the HiFiMan HE-6 planar headphones

    Alright so finally got the BasX going with the jumpers applied and the most prominent difference I noticed immediately is the sound stage. Rather than in your face/head with the A90, the vocalist and instruments are spaced a nice social distance away. Everything felt warmer and it didn't feel...

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    If it's not too much trouble. I'm looking for the best pairing for my He6se and don't have much to compare to since I only have the A90 and will have the BasX tomorrow.

    Hifiman HE6-SE

    I'm just asking for the source. It doesn't make sense to me to try out every recommendation without in-depth review or a community consensus especially if the cost is out of my pocket. 5% of $400 is still $20 and w/e the cost of return shipping.
