I have 3 OTL amps and one 300b amp in my tube amp collection. Why would I sell my precious tubes :D

I realize this might be a good place to ask...

 

Has anyone tried both the LF339/DV337 and the Little Dot mk6 (or mk8)? The insane headfi-er me is growing in power and challenges the sane side of me to sell my 339 for a LD balanced amp. The justification was 'to better use your balanced NFB10'...

post #1045 of 1528
The VI+ is big step ahead of either the LF/DV both SE and balanced.

Have you listened to the 337, 339 and that LD? No attack, just checking. If yes: what is the difference between the 3 models. If no, why the recommendation

 

Thanks

x2... the 337/9 are dual mono, coupled only by input and output common grounds (EDIT...at least thats my understanding of them).  The two single ended channels internally are about as separated as possible L to R.  Would be interesting to compare them up against a full balanced setup.

There was a really interesting debate on amb's site about the benefits vs. detriments of "balanced amps."  Note that these are better described as bridged or differential/push-pull amps, depending on their topology.  Technically, the term balanced really relates to cable design (intended for common noise rejection over long runs), but the term has been totally bastardized and misused to death over the years on head-fi.  

 

In any event, contrary to frequent claims that balanced is better, if you agree with the engineer from benchmark, building a "balanced" headphone amp is actually a mistake in that it raises output impedance, lowers damping by 50%, and adds noise and distortion, while doubling the component cost of the product. 

 

See the first and last pages of this thread for a pretty lively exchange on the topic: http://www.amb.org/forum/benchmark-engineer-on-balanced-v-unbalanced-headphone-amps-t326-30.html

Have GEC and Chatham 6AS7G and Tung Sol 5998 which all sound great but they're quite microphonic, sounding like a bedspring when you tap on them. Does this affect the signal in a headphone amp? Would be interesting to hear your experiences with this.
