I don't know where you gt the idea that the LCD-2 bass is better than the HE-6. Au contraire, anyone making that claim is simply not using a properly amped HE-6. If clarity and gaming are major concerns, your budget limited, you don't wan't to hassle finding a vintage receiver/amp, and don't want to hassle with the space requirements they can entail, you might consider a NuForce DDA-100 and bypass the expense of a DAC altogether. In any event, you need to go listen to both headphones first, before you make any decision as to which will suit you better.
+1 on the above. They're totally different headphones. I'm not into gaming but if you like accuracy and crispness then my money 'd be on the 6. But yes, it takes commitment to take it to its potential. On the bright side: if you make the investment you're set, can't see how it could be better as far as headphones go - haven't heard the totl Stax though.
