Interesting! Is this a little sibling to the 336?
post #3 of 1887
Looks like it, but it'd be weird to have a little sibling that costs $10 less than the real thing.

errr u sure it's $300USD? coz i was quoted more than that...if not mistaken around the region of $USD675...and i was told it's supposed to be a midrange...in layman term "poor man's DarkVoice 337i"...its sound quality lies between the DarkVoice THA 336i and THA 337i...i m still waiting for more news about this amp...

As I said before the price quoted would be selling expensive in local Malaysia market, thanks to our government taxessssss and we do provide one year local warranty support.

Yes. I am.

Yes. It is shrunk down version of 337. For 337 you need two power point to run balance power input but 332 only need one. It comes with single transformer compare with two that 337 has. From business point of view, 332 giving advantage over the 337 as its shipping weight just about like 336 in another words means customer save from shipping, getting similar performance of 337 & the manufacturer can sell more

So, is it solid state? Those black things are caps, right?

Thanks

with the look of that power chord you would think it was being driven directly from a nuclear power plant

I recently bought a DARKVOICE 332 from China (five days delivery) for 200 UK pounds. I wasn't expecting that much to tell you the truth (you know all the usual prejudices about Chinese hifi), I just wanted it as a back-up for my MF X-CAN V3, which out of necessity and curiousity I've extensively modded over the years. As soon as I hooked up the DARKVOICE, I knew I was listening to something special: bass was very deep and well defined; midrange was open and airy; and the top-end was clear, if not a little harsh (perhaps the result of the stock Chinese tubes?). As the days passed, the DARKVOICE became better and better: the top-end smoothed off, although to tell you the truth it remained a bit glassy; the midrange opened up even more; and the bass remained very deep and articulate. At first, the DARKVOICE was simply better than the ordinary X-CAN V3, then, gradually, it out-shone the modded one.

It drives the SENNHEISER HD650s effortlessly, better than either the stock or the modded X-CAN V3. How they will cope with lower impedience cans like the GRADOs remains to be seen.

I suspect if the tubes (2x6J1s and 2x6C19s) were changed the sonics would improve even more. Through this site, I know that the DARKVOICE 336i responds well to better quality valves, so hopefully the 332 will do the same. There are a number of 6S19P-Bs on E-Bay as well as some 6J1Ps, and all at a reasonable price.

The DARKVOICE 332 was a revelation to me. At the price, I suspect there would be few to touch it. I certainly won't be buying any more over-hyped, over-priced British headphone amps.

I'm totally confused. Are those funnel-looking things on it tubes??
