        I assumed the cat furniture was more for human amusement than actual feline needs. At least I know I would be amused by a cat on mini cat furniture.

      Another probably dumb question - is it realistically going to cause any problems stacking an EC Af (amp portion only) on top of a Ygg?

        @JK47 My Ygg is black so nbd. Will use spacers if needed.

        100% Agree that Stellaris is on paper better. But the EC house sound is generally closer to what I prefer and of the EC amps I've heard, I think the Af complements the Stellaris better.

      This may be a dumb question - how much of an audible difference between Monoprice IEC power cable vs whatever cable for $100? Wall sockets?

        Pretty much converted all to green dot medical grade power cables at less than $15 each. Dont have enough time in life to go through minor differences if each type of power cable, but these are high quality and should last a long time.

        A power conditioner will probably have a greater impact, depending on where you live.

        Problem is I'm not looking to buy anything Schiit right now so it will be a long trip to just "look around". I've heard most of their DACs (and have Ygg) but am not nearly as familiar with sound of most of their amps.

      First Watt F7, F5, F5t, J2, or Amp Camp in monoblock config. Any other similarly priced options to seriously investigate for HE6se?

        There's probably going to be a super 200W Aegir in the future. It won't be cheap though. Vidar in monoblock is considerably better than a single one. Incredible grip, superb slam and transients. It's a beast.

        If you have concerns for heat dissipation, you can cook eggs on the Amp Camp Amp - not the best for keeping cool.

        I’m listening first time to stock HE6SE (no grills) + OG Saga + Vidar and it is very impressive. Especially considering the excellent prices on the used market.

        Also I kinda suspect low thd spec may disservice. I don’t know recent phonitors much though. To me 6se with richer harmonics has more synergy. Auteur less depend on such traits.

        You read my mind. After phonitor yesterday I'm looking at first watt as an option now... except I still want an ss amp that works with other headphones and isn't a large space heater.

        I hear you about the midrange, not as robust as the HD650. Better bass you'll have to get a different amp. It'll tighten it up and remove much of the "slappiness" (which is what I heard from a single Vidar too). Swapping pads will make a difference, not as much as the amp IMO.

        Unexpected free time today - 1 hour with Phonitor X (with Aurender A10) - if 3F with Gungnir at meet was 90/91ish to me, then (used) Phonitor X at this place was about 89... but for 2/3 of the cost.

        Af is about 95/96 to me, Stellaris is 98ish.

        If one has to get flu, at least it should be a decent grade!

        Seriously, though... sympathy. Have spent the last few days with a /slight/ fever. More than enough to take the shine off life.
