AH so that is the secret!  I'm betting there is an instant priority increase.

Is there much wait time after ordering? I am at 10 weeks for my Decware.
post #1085 of 2376

Took a week for me: from ordering to receiving (LF-339).

 

Decware has an excellent reputation for quality so what you ordered may be worth the wait.

 

(Curious: for some reason, I am not listed as an "own it" for the LF-339.")

I ordered some capacitors for an upgrade to my Figaro and after a long wait I finally got them but they are designed for surface mount and no pcb was supplied. Unusual to see mkp metal film capacitors that are designed to mount to a pcb is why I never requested it. Sent an email back asking to buy the pcb (it is really small) but have not as yet got any reply. I think the language problem is really hurting their business. Hard to imagine why they can't get a bilingual Chinese to handle their communications online. I bet it would do wonders for their sales.

The amp for me is probably the most important part of the audio chain, having LF339 for year or so, I start thinking what to do to get more SQ of my audio ring system I would like to not sale it, because I like much the sound the amp produces, but looking at the build quality and design of LF339 I knew it it could have hidden potential.
So how it sound?
The "Dark Knight"339 have everything the LF339 does well and takes it to another level.
This mod make noticeable and measurable differences. It extends much lower end and it retains deep, tight bass, the mids are sweeter and  more detailed now, also improved clarity and dynamics among other things.
One thing I'm very sensitive against harsh sounding highs especially on loud level, now I can listening music on higher volume level then usual without any harsh or clamor.

I am not quite sure I ordered few different things as well at this time, it was something about 550$, almost all parts needed to do this mod ordered from Parts Connexion got the discount 20% off so was not to bad.
