I think its likely better than anything else in its price range, by far.

But... when you can get the DV332 for very little more - why not?
Of course, but my budget a year ago had an absolute max of $250, which put the 332 out of my range.

Excellent... About to purchase my 332, and Jasmine no longer has any 110v versions in stock, and Casque just took the "Make an offer" option off on its 332.
post #1638 of 1888

Some Options...

Wow...

Looks like the DV332 is becoming too popular.

But... I guess I'd:

1. Ask Jasmine how soon the amp will be available - and possibly wait until then.

2. Email Casque to make an offer at around $420 shipped and see if they accept it.

3. Email AudiophileChina.com to find out if they have the 110-120 volt version (I think its 120). They're price is $410 shipped, I think - email them to confirm. I don't know anything about them, so you want to take appropriate precautions (e.g. pay via a good credit card that will protect you and refund your money if you have any problems).

4. You can always buy the 240 volt EU version and use a voltage transformer/converter to run it. That's what I do and it works fine. Here's a good one - the one I use is the VC-100W for $14.

In the title of Jasmine's auction, it says "2007new version". Are there multiple versions of the 332?
post #1640 of 1888
I wonder when will be 3322 for sale . Darkvoice mentioned in one of his posts that they are stopping production of 332 for a while. Is it temporary or is it because 3322 will replace it ?
post #1641 of 1888
The 3322 is for sale, but not in the usual outlets - Jasmine, Hifi Casque, etc. It retails at around £250 (about $500). I'm very interested in this amp also. Over at the Rock Grotto, Darkvoice is trying to stir up interest in the UK and US for representatives to distribute their gear for them. But I wonder would the prices go up accordingly?

Thanks alot, I just emailed Casque asking if they will take $430 shipped. In an email from Jasmine a couple of weeks ago, I was checking on the availablity of the 110v version, and he told me there was only one more left, "never again to be produced in the future." Sigh... why didn't I buy back then?

Also, has anyone here ever bought from Audiophilechina? Their prices are lower than I've seen in most places, but there's no information on them at all... No reviews, no consumer reports.

Actually, according to their website Audiophilechina is the website of ebay's Casque hi-fi

News item: "--2008/01/18: Our registered eBay member name is "casque_hifi", with 100% positive feedbacks. We are a Chinese branch, our head office being in France. Our role in the hifi industry is quite special as we are the link between the manufactures, mostly unknown to the European market, and the clients."

I got my 332 from audiophilechina. Received the amp within a week after i made the payement. There was a threat a couple weeks back about audiophilechina buyers experiences, not sure in what forum part tho.

I need to confirm a few things.
1. I live in the USA so i would need the 120v not the 220/110v model of the DV322 is this correct?
2. I would use the DV 322 for my HD-650s. My source for the HD-650 and the DV332 will be my Onkyo TX-SR705A/V. All HD/BD player will pass to my Onkyo via HDMI 1.3. And then i would plug in the DV322 to my Onkyo. Is this the right way to do this?
3. Would you say i will get a benefit by having my HD-650 plunged into the DV-322 over plugging my HD-650s into my Onkyo?

Thanks for your help.

1. Yes... but... you can also get the 240v model and a 100W voltage transformer/coverter to convert 110-120v mains voltage to 240v voltage for the DV332. You might do the conversion... if... you can't get the standard US 110-120v model. It works fine - I do it with my 240v version in the US.

2. I don't know... but... that sounds right - someone else will have to help you with this question.

3. You'll get much better sound from your HD650s to drive it directly with your DV332 - no comparison.

Thanks for your reply this is what I need to know now. Here is a description of the DV332. AC Power:220V/50Hz or 110V/50Hz, is this for us that live in the USA or would I need a converter?
Thank You.

I recently bought one Tianyun ZERO DAC from AudiophileChina.com, very fast shipping and good customer service! I will order one 3322 in future!

Check With...

Check with the vendor to obtain clarification.

The wording implies that both the EU and US versions are available, or that the amp can be switched to match either type of mains power. I've never seen a DV332 that could be switched to match the mains power - so I don't think that's what it means.

You would need the 110v/50Hz version for US - if its available.

Or... you would need the 220v/50Hz version with a 100 watt or 200 watt voltage transformer/converter (VC-100W or VC-200W) from:

Just be aware... the DV3322 costs a lot more than the bargain-priced DV332... and... the SQ is unlikely to be that much better.

But... its your money.

Moreover... if everyone resists buying the upgraded units... the price is likely to be reduced.
