Agree with you 100%. The Herron is incredible! I am running it unloaded too.

Hey 666, I was listening to the Herron on headphones for the first time this week and noticed glare and harshness in the high frequencies. So I plugged in the 500 ohm resistor plugs and glare went away, much smoother sound overall.

I’ve actually never used headphones as I listen in a 2.1 channel setup. I really like it unloaded but I used the 500 ohm plugs at first. The dynamics were better unloaded and it seemed to pack more punch. Who knows what it would sound like under headphones though. Interesting observation though. Whatever works best for you I’d roll with though!
