Dark Voice 339 - Page 9

post #121 of 2404

alvin,

 

You're right I'll do my research and purchase dv337 next week. I found in my tube collection a pair of bendix 6080, will be able to do a tube rolling. :-)

The 337 is fantastic value for the money and i'm sure you will be very pleased. Shame there isn't more peoples impressions on the 339, it might make you grin wider, who knows.

 

Like i said, do your research, don't rush, thats half the fun.

I have to give you an explanation, the initial products of  Dark Voice and now the Figaro products are all designed by a same designer ,see the signature.
Because of  the separating of the fore company, we have to chang the trademark to Figaro,we redesign the 336CLASSIC、332CLASSIC、332S,but we don’t change their signature, our designers do their best in new product design,in appearance、performance、materials and manufacturing process all have greatly improvement. We continue to improve our products, providing better products and services for our old and new friends. 2.jpg

Thanks Yuking, now I understand.

 

I love DV337, more impression on LF339 will be very useful.

another DV337 user here. My first and last amp so far for several years. I've been to meets, hearing systems at thousands of dollars. no urge to upgrade still, not only because I am poor. Having satisfied, I've moved on to other hobbies like electric guitar and soon speaker system. DV339 is absolutely interesting though.

339 has great improve in using device, tube. RCA socket.and Headphone socket by cmc both make reliability more better.
 



In my case, the humming of 337 is pre-amp tube dependant. I have zero hum with most of my tubes, even with grado rs1. having said that, I dumped a few tubes due to the humming issue.

Yuking09: any chance you guys will make a balanced headphone amplifier at some point? I´d say there´s a market for it smily_headphones1.gif

Just curious but how would I go about finding what tubes are compatible for tube rolling?  I've been using stock tubes with both the dv337 and lf339.

I asked a similar question here (no answer as yet): http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/463488/the-darkvoice-la-figaro-332c-and-332s-impressions-discussion-thread/375#post_7005770

See here for a start

Maybe useful for LF339 as well cos both are using the same power tubes.

I finally choose LV339, after reading lots of reviews(WA6,WA2,DV337,LV339)
I hv paid last week via TT directly to Yuking 09, now i can't wait to see my LV339. I hope it will arrive soon.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post as a new member, I have a good history of car audio but am quite new to serious headphone audio, with 2 young kids it is sometimes the only way to get some music time smily_headphones1.gif

I just had to post my initital opinion of the 339, of which I must say I am very impressed. Compared to the other headphone outputs available- M audio Firewire 410, the sound of the Darkvoice is just so much more involving, clear and vibrant. It definately draws you in from a quick listen to being there for at least half an hour. I have not had a great deal of gear to compare it with, but with the setup I have- HD650 headphones, Music streamer 2+ and Foobar 2000, I am mighty impressed. Volume hardly ever gets over 3 so there is masses of power and clarity. I am still in the initial 50 hours, and have ordered some  5998, 6080 and EF80 tubes so look foward to hearing things once I get these in.

Welcome to the madness Michaelcoota.

 

Great to hear you are enjoying your new purchase, a few pics of your beautiful amp will go down well with your new friends .

 

I myself have the 337se and i recently swapped my amperex bugleboy EF80s for Telefunken EF800s.Maybe not as punchy as the amperex but more midrange goodness and a sweet top end.

 

Have fun tube rolling
