You could increase the output coupling capacitors to more realistic values (the ones in it are a bit small even for most high impedance phones, once you take phase distortion into account). They're a bit of a pain to get on on the current 336i though, since they added that PCB.

That sounds promising. Can you point me in the direction of information about how to do this, or who could do it for me? Is it brain surgery?

I have a little question about using the 336i as a pre-amp :

If I turn the volume wheel that will increase the sound as a normal pre-amp ? or don't increase the sound and in fact it's just a line-out ?

Ayone can answer my question ?

It's a stupid question I know, but I prefer ask it before buy the darkvoice

It would control the sound like a normal pre-amp.

Another question :

There is a mod for be able to use low impedance headphone as well as high impedance headphone ?

My Alessandro MS2 really sound bad compare to when I use it with C&C Xo portable amp :/

I'm not sure, but I use headphones from 32 Ohm's to 600 Ohm's (AKG 240M) and this amp responds nicely from the lowest of the low, to the highest of the high's.

I have NO idea, and I don't know what to tell you in regards to your other amp. You should hear a difference (for better) in the 336i, not the opposite.

Has anyone compared the Darkvoice 336 with the Woo Audio 3 ? Or with the Doge ? What are the differences between them ?

Unfortunately I did not have the 336i and the WA3at the same time to compare - that would have been interesting. From memory, I would say that they are very competitive, both offering excellent sound. Both are well built. I personally think the 6SN7 is a better sounding and less microphonic tube than the 6DJ8/6922 that the WA3 uses, but the WA3 truly sounds excellent. I'd call it a toss-up. The WA3 is more expensive, but it's easier to get, and would be easier to get fixed, than the 336i.

Is it work properly with my EMU 0404 USB?
Have you got any problem?
Have I got RSA cable, if I buy it in ebay?

Finally when I went back France and I got back my RCA tubes the problem disappeared : I was using a sylvania as rear tubes and it was sounding really ugly : if I use the RCA as rear tube everything is perfect.

Now I use the RCA in the back and the sylvania VT 231 in front

voice problem

please, help me.
I hear short side tone every 3-5 minutes. The amp don't attach to sound source. AC and headphones only ...
I want to change the lamps. Is it right?
post #89 of 92
Yes, that is a tube with a problem. You should replace the tubes.

I just purchsed a 336i from the FS forum, and a ZERO as a dac, to power my DT-880 250 ohm. What should I expect? I believe the amp is already burned in.
