What do you find different with the Violectric vs the 339?post #966 of 37147/8/12 at 8:03pmpost #967 of 37147/9/12 at 12:08am
Violectric vs 339? That's not really fair now is it? :)
The 339 is an OTL amp originally designed for high impedance headphones while the V200 has a lot more power and can be used by low impedance headphones, Orthos and high impedance cans. Of course with some 5998 power tubes the 339 also drives the ortho's (maybe not the HE-6) The 339 is still my fav with the He-500 & HD650.
The V200 is a warmer sounding ss amp, but not as warm as the 339, the 339 is much smoother. Treble on the V200 is better, more detailed and bass on the V200 is more punchy and defined while it has more rumble and timbre on the 339 (why I prefer the He-500 on the 339)
In general the 339 is smoother, warmer aka more tube-like as the more detailed and powerful V200. With the LCD-2 it depends on the kind of music what amp I choose. The Crack only gets used for the HD650
Good enough?post #968 of 37147/9/12 at 5:09ampost #969 of 37147/9/12 at 3:25pmpost #970 of 37147/9/12 at 5:21pmpost #971 of 37147/14/12 at 8:42pmpost #972 of 37147/15/12 at 1:17ampost #973 of 37147/16/12 at 1:51pmpost #974 of 37147/16/12 at 2:12pm
