The 340s and DV was a great combo. The last meet (12-2) i got to hear Boomana's woody 340s and the DV. I liked it soo much, i bought her DV today at the mini meet. The woody 340s and the Heed are hers. These are only on loan for a week so i can test it between tube and SS.
Honestly..i love the warm sound you get from the tubes and the 340. I really enjoy any acoustic type of music with this combo. You can really hear the pluck of the string. Its a small soundstage though, maybe this is due to the woody, i dont know. I have never heard a normal 340 so i can tell you how they differ. The bass is nice, clear and controlled...maybe in certain music it might get alittle flabby. It all depends on how you like it. I much rather nice clear controlled bass over the flabbiness. The hi's are great..clear and crisp. They do at times seem like they are going to get harsh..however they still hold that nice clear sound through the range of music. The mids sound great, maybe a tad recessed..however i enjoy that.
All in All, its a nice combo. I think you will be pleased with it depending on your genre of music. Not that i dont think it would perform great in all. I know people tastes for music are different so.
