Dark Voice 339 - Page 138

post #2056 of 2241

Does anyone have any experience with the adapters and the EF 86 tube rolling?

Perhaps the question of the adequacy of the HD800 has to do with the tubes used? The EF 86 might help? 

Who had the HD 650/600 and HE500 can tell me whether it is better to go directly to the HIFIMAN (for those who have the money) and then forget Senheisers? Thanks.

I cant talk about the adapter
But i do know one thing or two about the hd650 and the he500
The hd650 is a pairing in heaven with the 337/339.. But it still is a very mellow kind of phone..the he500 is also one of the best pairings with the 337/339 and imho its better then the hd650..
If u can get a good second hand he500 ur ready to have a audio bliss experience.. tongue.gif
Pm me if ur interested to buy one wink.gif

ended up getting ts6sj7gt, 6 of them in fact lol

 

so very good, really enjoying going through my music

post #2060 of 2241

how much were those?

post #2061 of 2241

Would it still be possible to buy an "old" 339? I need one for my friend but I want the 6AS7G/6SJ7 tube combo

Should be around 20$ a tube

post #2063 of 2241

i paid more than that

 

some i really overpaid, some i got for a relative bargain. swings and roundabouts, got nib ts5998s for a steal. all in all i paid more than i wanted to but i'm happy with the outcome.

I didn't know Yuking has changed the driver yet. I would buy from him directly and asked for it, along with the new array resistor configuration. That's a leap forward in quality imho.

BTW... is the L63  way better than EF80 - EF86 - 6C5C?


Sorry I haven't seen you post!

L63 is sounding great to me. I don't have two amps to test it out what is best between this and that, and by the way I modded the hell out of my amp so don't take only my word for it, try it!

 

I did the L63 mod because I saw lots of DIYers in China doing this mod, and at the time, the full blown 339 reference mod (made by the BOSS) was wired that way (before the EF86 mod which is the best now means "linearity of the driver").

 

I stay at this stage as I don't have that kind of money for EF86 Rolling, and I have an army of spare tube in my configuration and even moreso with adapters ...

Even that I have a very expensive electrostatic setup now, I still love the 339/HD650 for a change. The sound has a certain quality to it that proves that "medium" "treble" and "bass" means nothing in term of music listenning experience! You can't possibly discribe accurately the difference between the two, but you would notice right away.

 

I like 339/HD650 because it's musical, dynamic, pop, fun, deep... I prefer pop/rock with that setup. (tubes changes things up like clouds passing by change shapes)

I like Stax SRM006TS/SR507 because it's big, classy, detailed, 3D, thundering. I prefer western and eastern classical music with Stax. (I only have one tube configuration for this amp, which is Toshiba 70's 6FQ7 it's superb and better than all the US black plate 50's I tried)

But I like to mix things up too style Wise, King Crimson on Stax is a thing of beauty!

I got a reply from him, it's only the new version and with shipping, price is $950. I paid $650 for my first one. As a result I decided not to buy a second one, I'll just order a custom made OTL

post #2067 of 2241

Yes I saw the price climbed up, I didn't expect to be so expensive! Must be successful in China I guess...

Are you talking about the new version with the power resistor array that is 950$?

On his website, shipped to europe, it's 720$ for the 339...

No idea, that's the price he communicated. But I didn't get it so it's ok ;)

I have Telefuken EF806, Philips E80F, Telefuken EF86, Valvo EF86, Mullard EF86 and GEC EF86. The EF86 have the best Transient response, High frequency extension and Resolution on the 339, but the acoustic coloring of tubes isn't apparently, near the Transistor.It play Classical is more better then Vocal.

If you want to use 339 drive HD800, You can try to use Valvo EF86, the tube have more Low frequency can fill in HD800 and HD600.
