    I finally got a wood case for my Fisher 400 and got her all restored. New tubes, LEDs, recapped, bias set, and the rest. Sounds fantastic!

    Running the HE-6 on the phone out of the LTA Z10e (it has EL84 output tubes) and the sound is excellent. Very good separation, bass is solid and nice 3D imaging. Dynamics are everything I would want, quite surprised. Using volume 42 out of 100 and as loud as I would want. No compression or hint of hitting a lack of power.

    This has the finesse of a smaller amp, that would not normally power the HE-6, with the power to do it. Best of both worlds.

    Hey all.

    Question for those that have ZMF pads on the HE-6. How did you attach them? I got some Auteur Suede pads coming in but not sure what kind of adhesive I need or if their is a Hifiman attachment ring I can purchase.

    You don't have any stock pads you can pull the attachment rig off of? It's probably better to have a separate set tgan detach anf attach them many times and risk messing up the pads.

    I guess you can either buy them or cannivalize them like Skippy says.

    I like the HE-500 out of my BHA-1, but too bad it doesn't drive the HE-6 hard enough.

    Well I got the ZMF Suede Auteur pads in. Very nice, hopefully these make a good replacement for the discontinued Audeze Vegans.

    Only problem is using the retention ring from a pair of Velours I bought from amazon (thanks cskippy!). It's just a pain in the butt to attach them lol.

    Waiting for my headphone cable before I can listen to the cans.

    My setup is Eitr->Modi 3->Saga->Vidar

    The modi 3 is temporary until Schiit gets a Bifrost Multibit back in stock. That's the last piece for my HE-6 chain (and speakers).

    Is the BlueTak mod absolutley necessary? Kind of nervous about taking out the drivers.
