They'll accept an offer of $200. Like-new, never used, with full warranty.

 

They are the Pro version (250 ohm) which has a bit tighter clamping force than the Premium version (which comes in 32, 250 and 600 ohm versions and is more expensive).

Dang, that's a good deal. I'd get the Premium every day, though.

You'd have quite a few of them by the end of the year, methinks. biggrin.gif

hey guys, so what is a good tube amp to pair with the DT880? something i was looking at were the little dot MKIII or MKIVse but i'd like some other suggestions to expand my horizons a little. thanks

I have the MK IV SE. With a good front end, it's a beauty.
 

post #2814 of 10426

front end being power tubes right?

post #2815 of 10426

No, sorry to be vague, the source. I upgraded my desktop rig (MKIV to Beyers) by putting in a Channel Islands DAC and a Musical Fidelity V-Link SPDIF converter. The improvement was startling, so I feel I haven't reached the limits of the amp as yet.

ahh ok. well this is my first time getting a complete setup, so i'm not so keen to spend huge dollars and wanna keep things simple. i have a HRT MS2 being shipped to me; bought second hand. what genre of music do you listen to mainly?

Don't forget that you also can purchase a used amplifier. Musical Fidelity X-Can V3 for example sounds great with DT880/600.

I'm really satisfied with my Darkvoice 336i. This OTL tube amp drives the Beyers really nice with the right tubes. Plenty of different tubes to try so you can "flavor" the sound to your liking. Although that can get quite expensive if you're not careful. You can get a used one at a pretty good price. I think the new ones are now the 336SE. I believe they have made some small adjustments/tweaks to it.

The La Figaro 336C.
It has lot of fans in the 250 and 600 Ohm DT880 owners.
It has a rather high output impedance so I would not use it with 32 Ohm cans.

for best results, roll in a couple of NOS tube.
