Thank you. here's another one: http://www.head-fi.org/t/15857/post-a-picture-of-your-headphone-rig/1365#post_8645945

I bought V. the same RCA Reds but his were in better cosmetic shape as mine. I like the sound too, more as EF80

Honestly Ultra, that looks like a small HP Boutique! When do we come over to play?

Hi all,

 

Been digging through all these posts, love the photos and discussions of this amp!

 

I'm very new to all the hifi world and I recently got some gear (hd650, schiit bifrost,asgard) and I was so impressed i've been wondering what would be even better if I could stretch my budget. I've been doing a ton of research and having trouble deciding between a pre-built crack w/speedball or a la figaro 339. Any advice? I was thinking of building a crack but I have no experience and no tools, wasn't sure the total cost of the build.  Would the  jump from Asgard to either of these be worth it?

 

I was set on the crack until I read headphonia's review of the 339.  I'm confused however if the genre of music affects which amp I get? I see terms like the crack is faster,etc.. and the 339 is slower...how exactly does that affect the music? I listen to mostly acoustic/shoegaze/hard rock/punk rock/electronic stuff. 

 

Thanks in advance!!!!

Thanks for the help with the RCA's mate. Sound wonderful!

Was impressed by their pristine condition. :)

 

@telecaster: Thanks for the feedback. :) The headfonia-review was a good opportunity to see if my old Nikon D80 still does the same magic with some strobes. :)

Yes, RCA reds sounds great, and it's very durable and can last long hours too.

I haven't listened to the Asgard, so it's hard to tell if the step would be worth it. In my opinion the Schiit stuff is lower level (don't shoot me) but the Asgard is supposed to be pretty good from what I've read.

There's a difference in sound between the Crack and the 339, depends what you like. Looking at your preferences, in my opinion you might be better off with the faster Crack.

 

Maybe you should read Head-fi's or Headfonia's audio vocabulary guide ;-)

Thanks ultra for the quick reply, i appreciate it. i have a small window to return the asgard.  Its a great little amp just looking for something more long term.  So it sounds like faster music translates into a faster amp that can keep up?  Hmmm, interesting about the genre, I didn't know there was a vocabulary guide, I'm going to go read it now.

 

Thank you again!!

Thanks for the reply Ultrainferno!

 

Yeah I noticed afterwards on page 56(?) as I was going through the whole thread......the question was asked on page 8 but never answered and the search function just took me back to the thread.

So what's up fellow 339'ers? Nothing new to tell?
 

post #1062 of 2378

Any comparisons yet between the 339 and the new Woo?

I'm thinking of getting an LF339 for my HD650s.  I already have the HRT MSII+.  I need to sell my LCD2 rev.1s first though, as I do not like their sound signature compared to the HD650.

 

Question, where do you guys purchase the Tung-Sol 5998/Chatham 2399 tubes and RCA reds?  Cheapest, most reliable seller would be preferable of course.

These days they're very rare and hard to get them, I got my 5998 from http://www.vacuumtubes.com/ for 65$ but this was while ago.
The 7236 could be easy to find and could be even cheaper  I prefer them over 5998, especially in the bass region, the bass signature is best I ever heard on my LF339/sennh HD650, juicy, punchy and deep.
