Would love to add the Susvara + 430HA to my stable. Almost snagged a 430HAD earlier this year but the seller and I couldn't meet on pricing... the DAC portion wasn't of much interest to me. Do you have any experience with the Arya or HE6se on the Moon? Would also be interested in your favorite pairings for the Susvara.

Unfortunately have only heard Arya on my Chord Hugo 2 and it was a very bad pairing. Never heard HE6. Everything that I have tried sounds good on 430HA though and even better with the pass labs preamp in the chain. the only headphone that the 430ha couldn’t really fix to a listenable level was the dt990. 430ha beats my speaker amps (and I have great speaker amps). Susvara is a very good headphone, the best overall that I have heard, and it sounds best on the 430ha... but I’m curious to try it on an A90. 430HA easily powers Susvara. Voce on BHSE+chord Dave +Mscaler was the most impressive chain I have heard, so I’m working on getting a BHSE after I reach my cryptocurrency goals for the year. From what I heard from friends, my Holo May L2 beats the Dave+Mscaler when using HQPlayer. Voce still doesn’t beat Susvara overall, but it does things that feel more like you are actually there, and to me stage is the main priority. so...it’s unfair to compare Holo May to the Dave since I’m not using the same energizer yet.
Thanks, appreciate your input.

That ukulele in the background off to the right is the real endgame ;)

That’s actually a one of the giant foam hands in the shape of a Shaka. I have 3 ukuleles though.

Just a side hobby. Hard to see in the photo but there are some more headphones in the back and 4x 64 Audio IEMs in the front too. The he1000v2 was sold for a he1000v1 since this photo was taken. There are more headphones that couldn’t fit also. I’ve gone through a lot of headphones, but the ones on the stands are worthy.
