332S is a group of power provide  2 channels ,339 has 2 groups of power provide each channels,they are completely independent,the separating degree,the detail and the strength of LRC are all better than 332S.

Any impressions on this amp yet?

post #109 of 2438

and how does it compare with 337?

post #110 of 2438

I'm not getting any hum or hiss with my LF339.  That's the most noticeable difference as compared to the DV337.  Sonically, on my HD600's I noticed the LF339 is a bit more lush and tends to bring more details to the foreground.  The DV337 was a more neutral, slightly softer presentation.  It's not a huge difference though.  Bass and dynamics on both amps are excellent and far exceed any other amp I've used.  Compared to the Audio-GD C2, there is no contest.  Both tube amps completely outclass it in terms of resolution, dynamics, and tonality.  The C2 just sounded thinner, less natural and sort of clock radio-ish (in comparison), and far less dynamics especially in the lower bass region.

Thanks npdang, roughly I can imagine how it sound already, based on 337 as reference point.

post #112 of 2438

thanks npdang,

Is someone using the DV337 or LF339 with hd800? I'd like to hear some impressions. thanks.

post #113 of 2438

I was able to compare the hd800 to the hd600 on the lf339 before returning the hd800 back to Amazon.  I just felt the hd600's were far easier (and much more forgiving of mediocre/poor recordings) to listen to on this amp, which is extremely dynamic and tends to bring out a lot of background details to the forefront.  Listening to say Jacintha or one of those audiophile cd's... the sound was fine just leaner and a bit more open than the hd600.  But if you try say Dusty Springfield or Alison Krauss, the hd600's just sounded much more natural and full bodied than the hd800 which leaned toward a harsher, more artificial sound.  I focus alot on vocals, especially female vocals so for me the lf339+hd600 was the perfect combo.

What are the dimensions of the 339? Its quite big.. : )

 

post #115 of 2438

Thanks for your thoughts on the 339 npdang. Interestingly, I remember skylab saying in his review of the headphone, that the high frequencies weren't to his liking when pairing the hd800 with the 337. 

 

Have you tried the amp with any lower imp phones?

post #116 of 2438

So hd800 and DV337 are not the matched pair, I see. Thanks  for your opinion. Will be searching for another amp. for my sen.

I had a brief listen to the hd800 on my 337se at the Manchester meet last year and i thought they sounded really good, although they didn't make me want to sell my hd650. Maybe extended listening would have me change that view, but i didn't have any complaints about the high frequencies.

 

Don't dismiss the amp out of hand over just a couple of peoples views,do your research like any good headfier 

post #118 of 2438

I agree.  You should definitely try to do your own research.  The way any amp/headphone combo sounds is highly music/source dependent.  For a long time I couldn't understand some reviewer's comments about equipment I owned because I never listened to it with the music they did, and hence never had any of the same issues.

 

@alvin - Sorry, I don't own any low impedance cans.  Yuking has mentioned that the lf339 is more friendly toward low impedance cans than the dv337, fwiw.

This had nothing to do with the 337.  I didn;t really care for the HD800's treble in general.  The 337 is a terrific sounding amp, IMO, as long as it is not used with low impedance (dynamic) headphones.

npdang, do you intend to do any tube rolling?
