    All matter quality of amps, source, quality of all cables, power strip filter etc...everyone know it if someone try it of course :wink:. And with speaker it is more obvious. Disadvantage a lot of time to put and trying, synergy...

    No kidding. I'm asking if the Mimby really does seriously restrict the soundstage and separation of the HEX. I've actually tried it with a CMA600i and a number of relatively expensive portable DACs/amps and did not find this to be true. Do others agree that it is?

    Compared to which DAC? There are better DACs and if compared them, then yes. But no way Mimby is lacking in soundstage. Depth and layering is very good for the price.

    When I tried CMA600i, I used it as both DAC and amp, so I don't know which contributes more to the SQ. CMA600i soundstage feels flat and boring to me, even though separation is good.

    Waiting for more comparisons between the Ananda and the Sundara :)

    And Ananda vs Edition X.

    First the Sundara and now this? Could HiFiMAN be slowly returning to it's price/performance glory :O?

    We need Susvara to not require nuclear power to drive it.

    did you sold your D8000?

    lol, is it that demanding? I'm content with the Ananda. Seems to have opened up some or could just be the meds I have took. I'm not close to their recommended burn in of 150 hours yet. Don't think I've hit 50 yet lol, but I'm loving the headphones.

    That's what the HE1000v2 is for. The SUSVARA isn't hard to drive for no reason, like the HE-6 and to a lesser extent the LCD-4. Dual magnet designs are harder to drive and stronger magnets probably make it harder to drive, among other things.

    HE1000v2 at $2,000 would be more reasonable I think. Not sure how to price the SUSVARA, I have no experience with it but I'd guess no more than $3,000 which already puts it far above the Stax SR-007 which has significant inherent advantages.

    The LCD 4Z has the strongest dual-sided magnet structure to date and it can be driven with just a smart phone.
