    I also got the Uptown deal at $40!  Gave them to my sister for her birthday, she loves them.

    This, but I ended up selling the uptowns as they need a good seal and don't make for good walking headphones (despite marketing ads)...
    Hopefully these make better portables? Or are these not for portable use at all? If not I can just give it away.

    Yeah, I'm giving these to my roommate. I feel bad about reselling for profits [​IMG]

    I'd buy a pair :c

    I don't have any headphones right now that I like listening to, since my K267s don't arrive until the end of January.

    just a note on that, some say the odac and msII are better, and less at average price.

    Also found this from Playback that agrees that the EF-5 will drive it, as will the Burson HA-160--albeit just:

    If you read up on the HE-6 and HE-6 amplification thread, you'll see that the burson and ef5 don't provide enough power at all. The result will there will be sound but it will sound bass light and extremely bright to the point of being unable to listen.

    Any feedback from the use of vintage receiver (1970's & early/mid 80's) headphone jacks with the HE-6?

    The actual headphone jack on those units is is the same thing as the speaker taps, just with a few resistors involved, so theoretically, it should sound identical to running it on the speaker taps. Pretty nifty. Those vintage amps are really a deal for the amount of power.

    The vintage receivers will drive the HE-6 headphones without issue.  When the receivers were built in that era, the headphone jacks were connected to the speaker outs, but had just a few resistors in the wire chain.  The headphone jack, was much more of a powerhouse from that era.  Receivers of today, can't perform quite as well with headphones - but, there are some exceptions.  I've used Sansui receivers to drive my orthos - HE-5LE.  The only mistake I ran into was deciding to connect the headphones up to the speaker outputs in the back via speaker taps.  What I experienced was a horrendous amount of noise that I was getting on the HifiMAN headphones.  It sort of acted like a warning for me, as I suspected some issues were approaching with the caps and components on the board.  Had I just stayed with the headphone jack, I would have probably still had that receiver today.  One last thing regarding the vintage receivers - you'll realize that most of them will mute the sound going to the speakers when you plug in the headphones.  This is because they have a separate headphone stage on them.  The vintage receivers required you to manually turn off the outputs to the speakers by de-selecting the speaker buttons.

    Thanks guys--I have a couple of those receivers still on line, as I am now rather vintage myself.  My oldest is a 1971 Pioneer SX-990 and my most powerful a Sanui G-7500.
