Darkvoice 3322 - Page 2

post #16 of 68
Yes, they do.

One thing I liked about BOYIER is the way they packaged the 3322: Jasmine's packaging always worried me, it appeared too filmsy for the long journey from China. BOYIER packed the amp in a very sturdy box with strong nylon straps securing it across both the length and width. Needless to say, the 3322 was in prefect condition.

I do not know about the US, but electrical items from China incur no import duties or VAT in the UK. You may want to check this out before buying.

I contacted BOYIER. The price they gave me was pretty similar to Audiophilechina. I think I'll wait a bit longer and see how you like yours.

That seems strange to me, Coredump. Here is Boyier's website:

Translated version of http://shop.boyier.com/brand.php?id=2

The price they are quoting here is 2800 RMB. In UK pounds that is around £270. But if you are paying through PayPal there will be their fee - about $10.

Maybe there are other cost added in.

£270 = $409 but he quoted $430. It's still the best price but with shipping Jasmine is only $11 more and Audiophilechina $15 more.

Thanks, Bullseye. Sounds sweet too.

Anymore insight on how it compares to some of your other amps?

Could you measure the height? Thanks.

The 3322 sounds great: I'll comment at length later on how it compares to the 332, but its soundstage is bigger, especially its depth and width. It's a much closer call when it comes to the AUDIOTAILOR HM-1. This amp is also pure class, but its sound signature is different from the 3322: it's very natural, composed, whereas the 3322 appears more forward and dynamic.

Measurements of the 3322 are: Length 27cm; Depth 19cm; Height 13cm.

Thanks for the pics Godkin and congrats on the amp. I'm happy that you find it an improvement on the 332.
Looking forward to your impressions when you have spent more with the amp.

Cheers

HM1 will improve to dual sound signature as Jade. The 1st gerneration HM1 get one output only. I will send HM1 + Jade + pisces to USA for Cans Fest 2009 next Monday. HM1 , Jade + Pisces is a family. All have dual sound signature charateristic. Pisces additional 3 position feedback control.

Any updated impressions, Godkin?
I'm really interested in the 3322 to go with the HD650s. I'm also considering DV337, not sure which one would synergize best...

I'm preparing a full review of the 3322 sometime in the very near future. But I've replaced the stock 6J1s and 6C19s with AEG 6AK5Ws and SVETLANA 6S19P-Bs on Saturday night and the improvement was immediate. The sound had instantly more body, more refinement.

One thing I noticed, in terms of build quality, were the high grade tube sockets. On the 3322's predecessor, the 332, the tube sockets, especially those for the 6S19s, were of poor quality, and gripped the pins of the tube very loosely. DARKVOICE has obviously heeded the criticism of 332 owners here at Head-Fi and installed good quality sockets on the 3322. They look to me to be ceramic types, and they grip the tube very tightly indeed. Overall, the quality of the 3322 is simply first-class.

Whatever one of these amps you choose, Alksv, you can't go wrong with either the 3322 or the 337. Personally, I love the look of the 3322, and hope that DARKVOICE adopt its design for a new "3377" in the future.
