The HD650 is great with both, If you want to clear up the HD650 go for the Crack, if you like it's darkness go for the 339.

 

I replied in the Crack thread. In regards to the LCD-2, the Crack won't drive it at all. You will need the 339 with 5998 like power tubes

Thanks for your reply!

 

Here's the thing...

 

I love bass... Well-controlled and full... Not the boomy washed out-midbass type. And ass we all known, isn't that easy to achieve. I usually EQ up the Senns 650, +3 dB around 50 Hz and with a continuous fall to +1 dB at aprox 120 Hz. I find the HD650 a bit to bass-light compared to UM Merlin (CIEMs).

 

Therefore my interest in a new headphone-amp. The subsequent upgrade will most-likely be Audeze LCD-2's, when I find a good 2:nd hand pair at a reasonable price.

 

Maybe be Schiit Lyr is better for both? Please enlighten me, tube-amps are a new thing for me.

 

Tx,

I have no LYR experience, sorry.

 

I tried to help this guy: http://www.head-fi.org/t/615981/tube-amp-broken-la-figaro-339

But got called an aggressive passive ass by that newbie, and then when I set him straight my posts got deleted. You've got to love headfi

 

anyway, if someone wants to help him...

I wonder of Head-fi will delete this post too, or can't one have have a little criticism. If I get banned, bye guys :D

 

Telecaster's post also got deleted, He doesn't deserve any help after all that if you ask me :p

Strange world isn't it? I too experienced some angry responses from posters who were obviously too young and prematured to read my personnal opinions which is not the case here! You gave him a wise advice and he acted up... Don't get too upset, just report the posts in question with the red flag and the mods will clean it up.

Tx,


339 with LCD2 only if you use 5998 or 7236 tubes. Tube amp is so nice sounding, you will love this amp! At least I do.

Could you please explain briefly what this switch does? Add more power or another character of sound?

 

As explained earlier I'm completely new to tube amps... :)

Wow, the guy must be admin's cousin or something! His insulting post is still there too!
 

post #927 of 2404

I think you should have kept your comments. I read your comments and telecaster's before he deleted them and I have to say it's the first time I saw someone like that on head-fi. We debate a lot of things here but insulting post like that... meh =.= 

 

back to the amp the warranty yuking offers is 1 month only right ? 

I'm kind of worry since it's my first time playing with tube so I might screw up

I figured it was one year but it turns out it is only one month according to the site. Maybe you can mail yuking and just ask him?

When I had an issue with the 339 as well as all the other users, he always helped and I'm sure some had it for over a month.

There's nothing much you can screw up, just turn down the power when changing tubes and only use correct tube types :)

 

Just in case, do you have a local shop that could work on your amp in case you would need it?

 

and thanks for backing me up ;)

Or just buy it from a store on ebay for example, I have a one year warranty with them. It also seem they communicate with Yuking well and I had fast shipment of the faulty parts from both of them.
