Anyone got experience with spectral power amp? Found a nice deal with dma-160. (Probably wayyy too overkill for he-6 imo) Oct 24, 2018

        Stop thinking power output with the he6, start thinking current output.

        If that thing can really do 60A per channel, you're definitely good to go. Now to see the rest of the characteristics.

      Thinking about getting speaker amp for code-x, any suggestions? (That or i should just go for aficionados instead)

        Af too soft for Code-X, Vidar required. if somehow you don’t like- sell me the Code-X

        +1 on the Saga/Vidar combo. Great synergy with my Code variant; impressive bass, slightly warm and deep, deep layers. Neutral headstage, neither forward or too laid-back. I've thought on moving to a Firstwatt amp, but keep struggling with the 3X cost factor. Probably better putting the money into a better source.

        Pass Labs xa25. And I wouldn't run the AF on anything but 96db+ sensitive speakers.

      Tracked down Assemblage D2D-1 , i cant believe it took almost a year and a half to find one, lets see what this i2s “enhanced” can do...

        I still think Eitr is much morre easier but i cant help getting curious about that particular connector.
        The good thing is that while d2d is very hard to find, the price is not too bad (150$-ish for my case).

        I have the assemblage 3.1 fed by eitr but it also takes i2s via the massive connector. Long story but I had a d2d-1 for all of a few days, was kinda neat but alas never meant to be. Too bad they didnt include st optical output on the d2d. Do you think it competes with the eitr SQ wise?

        I2se gives p3 better technicality imo but eitr comes pretty close with smaller footprint, please keep in mind that i didnt send p3 in for se+ mod yet, hell , if i ever gonna ship that beast there i will be better of go grab yggyA2 instead lol.

      At this point ,Hunting down 4screws he-6 is much more difficult than finding he-5 imo. I managed to find 3 of he-5 but not a single he-6....

        If you'll ultimately end up sending them to LFF a 6-screw is just as capable. Or a 5LE

        I'd think $1100 to $1000 would be pretty good for paduak, a little less for cherry.

        I think it got around 70-80% of what i heard in gov2+ (Say, te02 got more air,speed and less congest in gov2 chain)
        It needs a bit more omph i guess

        I hooked it up with Modi Multibit as of now, it's pretty close to L-2 on resolving details but not as laid back (treble get kinda harsh/brittle sometimes on poorly mastered tracks, which i believed that tube rolling can take care of that)
