Was excited to receive my HD6XX's today. Pretty amazing deal when I consider what I paid for my HD650's a few years back. I like the shorter cable, I could have lived without the 3.5mm connector, but the 6.3mm adapter is good quality. I obviously don't have a lot of hours on mine, but they sound pretty good off the SE outlet on my Jotunheim, and they sound very good coming of the balanced side of the Jot. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a Magni 3 for these if you're on a budget. It's the only Magni I actually like with the HD6xx headphone line. The Magni 1, 2, and 2U never did any justice to any of the HD6xx line (IMHO). You can run them off of a Fulla 2, but it's not ideal. They pair really well with a Little Dot MK II and the right tubes (Voshkod or Mullard Black Holes), but I recently discovered that I'd never really "heard" my HD6xx line headphones until I heard them with my Woo Audio WA3. If you have the means and you love the HD6xx family, I HIGHLY recommend the WA3. The wait for the HD58X's continues.
Have you you used an Aune X7S with them before? Thinking of going that route.
I have not. I've used them (HD650/HD6XX) on Magni 1, 2, 2U, and 3, Vali 1 and 2, Fulla 2, Asgard 2 Valhalla 2, Jotunheim (w/DAC Module), NuForce Icon HDP, Little Dot MK II, and the Woo Audio WA3. I know "Z" really likes the Aune, and I tend to agree with him pretty consistently if that's worth anything to you. I would say that OTL tube amps and amps with balanced outputs have impressed me the most where the HD6xx series is concerned (though the 150ohm HD660S is a bit more flexible and forgiving).
