+1, I'm running the same setup. smily_headphones1.gif What tubes are you using on the 336?

Westinghouse 6as7 ...and a Psvane CV181-Tii at the front...my favorite pair.

airy..bigbigsounding...spacious...

 

i am also using a csp2+ as a preamp...

( supposed to have sold off the DV but the combo is outrageously good..so kept both..lolz )

Lovin it so far

Congrats!! What are you driving them with?

post #7865 of 7966

Thanks everyone! So I gather it's better to go for tubes (such as Schiit Valhalla/Lyr) than solid state like Oppo HA-1.

 

I'll look at Darkvoice. From a quick google, it's from China-- so I'm guessing it should be fairly easy to get from Singapore.

 

BTW, any thoughts on DIY kits? I saw a bunch from China selling for very good price especially for DACs...

Matter of preference.  Most people tend to prefer warmer sounding amps with T1.  If you're buying "blind" then tube amps in general tend to lean more this way.

 

Plenty of people like a number of solid state amps with the T1.  Meier amps get a good review, I love my violectric.  Depending on who you ask, these solid state amps fall anywhere from neutral to slightly warm sounding.

 

If you plan to tube roll then you also get a bit of a safety net there though, as you can tweak it to sound more like how you prefer with the right tubes.

If you're going budget, don't bother with anything other than the Bottlehead Crack. If you're spending more and you want DIY, there are a few others out there, but the Bottlehead S.E.X. & Mainline are both amazing with T1s

Sherwood s-7910, a vintage receiver.

 

I think ill try the damping mod on these, i like the sound better with the 4k-8k region toned down a bit.

But the clarity and bass are great/

The 560 is so new that you will have to get lucky to find someone on the forum who owns both. There are also different versions out there of the 560 so that may also cloud the comments. I can tell you that the T1 is excellent in both categories but it is not quite the equal of the HD800 in those departments. If you are going for the best soundstage the HD800 is the king. Still I listen to my T1's and enjoy them as they present things differently to my HD800's. Nice for a change of pace. I too have been looking at the 560's but from all the comments while many seem to like them they are getting mixed reviews because of the different versions out there.

I tried the HE560 at a meet and preferred my T1s. The HE560 felt a bit off for me (I'm an electronica fan), so I can't really comment on soundstage or details.
post #7872 of 7966

thanks guys i guess i will wait more to see others talk about t1 vs 560 on those areas...

post #7873 of 7966

Just got my T1 too.

 

Using a NFB-11 to power it and its sounding glorious !
