Adorama has the Hifiman HE6SE for $489 on their eBay store. They often times have even better prices there than the email signup link which has them listed in different conditions. The only thing is the ebay one is listed in used which might mean anything if it works since stock photos. On their web site you can pick the condition. Still, if you have an eBay credit card for points, or tax reseller certificate on file with either it might be a better deal depending... I used to have an HE560 and might get an open box one they have for $209. Long ago I didn't have that good of an amplifier, the SMSL SP200 and Topping D10b can do much better, probably handle the HE6SE as well, but have to see.

Make sure you flip the HF Trim Switch to -2dB if you're not gonna be using parametric EQ - that gives it a flatter on-axis & flatter listening window. If you're gonna use parametric EQ then you could try out the Anechoic EQ I created for them using Amir's spinorama measurement, there's a link to my parametric EQ in the following post:
Hello Robbo99999 and others, I got um and they are fantastic. I hit the -2dB HF Trim Switch and that sounds great. I'm going to try some of the parametric settings too. It's a new world for me, wish me luck. Thanks you guys, regards

Excellent! Make sure if you try my parametric EQ's, make sure you don't run the HF Trim Switch at -2dB, this is because the parametric EQ is already doing what the HF Trim Switch does (& more), the parametric EQ is based on the HF Trim Switch being at 0dB.

No, the deal for the R3 was new. It was only alive for 1 day though.

B&H has the Audiolab 6000N pretty deeply discounted ($399 vs $699). Makes it a lower-priced option than a BlueSound Node (and no MQA for those who won't buy anything with that capability).

$637 pair.
The Dali deal in that link has dropped to $500 a pair now, a killer deal. If only their bass extension dropped below 60 Hz. Fine for fronts with a sub for movie speakers, but not enough range for desktop full rangers. Sigh. Great quality though.

If it makes you feel better that speaker was never, ever $1197. Never.
It was $799 a pair everywhere. I believe that was msrp as well.
Have no idea where they get $1197.

Crutchfield does have the MKII for $1099.00


In Canada they are $1499.00, for the MKII.
