I'm currently using the Western Electric 403B, but other tubes like the Mullard M8100 also sound very nice.
Sweet.. well I have one WE 403b, guess I should've bought a match pair from what I've read elsewhere.

Riverlethe, the 332 and HD650s are the PERFECT combination.

If you find another one that's made the same year, chances are they'll sound exactly the same. Mine are even mismatched, and i cant tell the difference, sounds that should be positioned precisely in center are there, so i suppose they have a matching sound.

Here is my white 332.



A couple of larger pictures if you are that way inclined.



The case is white, and the backplate and faceplate are silver, brushed aluminium i would guess.

I was having a move around/tidy and sat my 701's and 332 on my cdp and it reminded me to take a few pics.

Wow that is SWEET!

Simply gorgeous. And very rare too.

Is there a DAC under $500 that would go well with the Darkvoice 332 and HD650's?
post #698 of 1888
wow..white is really very nice

Personally, Riverlethe, I have always wanted to try some of the DACs from the far east. DACs from the likes of LITE AUDIO and DIYEDEN. Another Chinese company well worth a try is XINDAK: they make two DACs - the DAC-3 and the more expensive DAC-5 with a tube output stage. There is also MHdt Labs. They produce a number of non-oversampling DACs: the basic DIALOGUE II ($250) and above that the CONSTANTINE + ($300). Next up is the RENAISSANCE II, again with a tube output stage.

The Darkvoice 332 is my first amp, so I don't know if I treat it right.
Here is what I do:
When I turn it on, I first unplug my phones, then I turn it on and if it seems that the tubes are working then I plug my headphones in.
Then I let it warm up for 10-15 minutes without music playing.
Then I listen to music.
When I turn it off I stop the music, turn the volume to 0, unplug my headphones and turn it off.
Is there something wrong?
post #701 of 1888
I would plug the headphones in before turning the amp on.
post #702 of 1888
are you sure about that? I'm only asking because I read on another thread that if a tube dies when powering up the headphone could be damaged.
post #703 of 1888
I keep my cans plugged in when powering up and down. I keep the volume down when turning on and turn the volume down before switching off.
post #704 of 1888
I guess the question is which you want to protect more - the tubes or the headphones. The odds of either getting damaged are probably low...
post #705 of 1888
But isn't changing a tube much cheaper and easier than getting a new pair of headphones?
