Darkvoice just released 332 - Page 53

post #781 of 1888
Gosh..

now i am choosing between a HD650 and K701

so which one is the best to suit the dv332?
post #782 of 1888
Hello Guys,
I have been on the fence between a Darkvoice 332 and an Antique Sound Labs MG head MKIII. Has anyone heard both and if so can you make a comparison between the two amps? Even the Darkvoice 336i. I have searched the home amps thread for months and even TBonner's 20 home amps thread doesn't include the Darkvoice. It's hard to know where it stands in the rankings when it isn't even mentioned! Thanks for any help on this.

Squall 343, the HD650s and 332 are the perfect combo - a match made in heaven.

I have the MG Head and the 336i, and they are both excellent, and they have different strengths. The 336i is more romantic, but the MG Head is better detailed and has slightly better bass.

You can get the best of all worlds if you spring for the Darkvoice 337

Hi guys,

I finally decided to post in this thread. I just bought a 332 from jasmine in ebay. I am now lookin for tubes that can boost the bass . I noticed that Mullard's m8100 and SVETLANA 6S19P-Bs have been mentioned several times in this thread. Are these a good choice?
cheers.

ps. Do they include any cables to connect it to my DAC?

cheers

I have that combination. It works, but not exceptionally well, in my opinion. A couple of other guys at the recent Philly meet thought that it worked also, but the combo did not sound nearly as good to my ears as the Sennheiser. That combo did sing and I believe that I see a HD 600 in my future.

Can't comment on the HD 650. Nobody at the meet had a pair.

do you like K701 or HD650? y bother with 650 if you don't care for it; who cares if it has awesome synergy with a particular amp??

yeah its a hard combo to make them sing.

try:
tubed/warm source, preferably with nice and warm copper IC.

I own K701 + DV332 and yesterday a fellow viennese Head-Fi member, rogues08, brought his Arietta + HD580(650 cable, dafoamed, 600 grilles) to my place. I still preferred the K701 for most of my music (Classic rock, hard rock, tango, new tango, lighter thrash metal, black metal) but I really NEED Senns now for thrash metal (only the very fast stuff like Slayer) and death metal. BTW the amps were very similar(still use stock tubes).

Great with Senns...

Yeah... the DV332 with the Svets and Tung Sols totally transform the HD580/600s, and HD650s to simply awesome phones - totally removing any veil.

I might... to try the DV337 - although, I must admit, I'm a bit skeptical that it can sound much better than the DV332 with the Senns.

Some of the comments re: the DV337 in the Raptor thread have made me "a bit restless" to try it.

Still not sure I want to do it though - it'll depend on what interest it gets.

well that's great, but for $700 price there's alot of nice tube amps, like MAD Ear+, Singlepower PPX, WA6
hell i've just confused you more

You're Right... But...

I realize you're "baiting" me... but...

You're so right... and... I've given a lot of thought to several of those over the past year... but... my experience with the Darkvoice 332, has convinced me that... no amp in the <$1,000+ price range will sound any better... and likely not as good.

I really think... that unless I'm willing to spend $2,000 for an SP Extreme Platinum, or, perhaps, the EC Zana Deau... I'm not going to find an amp... that sounds any better than the DV332, or DV337.

Just my hunch... but... I think its not highly likely!
