Again, you say that because you heard the Lyr at a meet with one set of tubes.
I have both amps right here, the DV is good but to my ears, the Lyr with some RTC E188cc's just sounds better with the HE-500 (bigger sound stage, better harmonics, tighter bass). How many tubes have you heard in the Lyr to make that assumption? The DV is around 400 dollars more here in the US, mine is the SE and was well over twice as much as the Lyr. (2.5times as much with my tubes). Please give that comparison a break already, you have heard the Lyr once or twice you do not know how rolling in the right tube makes a big difference.
i know a couple of people who listened or owned the lyr (with all sorts of tubes in it) and ALL said my 337 showed better soudnstage, less muddy and better midrange..only in the bass the lyr beats it handsdown....and i am not talking about 1 or two persons... And not on meetings also..but i guess ur have other hearing as everyone has..or have other prefernces..and thats okay!
. And i never said the 337 was best amp..i just said with the he500 and hd650 it was better then the lyr on the points i just mentioned...but somehow u react like being bitten by a wasp! Relax man!
But maybe i missed it..what tubes ur using in ur 337se? As especially the 337 is very sensitive to the right tubes i found out..and what phone is connected to it..
And i never said that u HAVE to buy it.just try it..and thats its MY OPINION..and u have to respect that...
.and to be honest..ur the ONLY one who says the lyr is better then the 337... So can u pls elaborate what tubes ur using? I know by now that the tubes ur using on ur lyr are very expensive and premium tubes..maybe u should try premium tubes on ur 337 se also? Like GEC? TS5998 or my favorite, the bendix 6980wb graphite plates (huge soundstage and low bass!)
But as i stated many times before..mine was modded and of last reversion..i know that earlier reversions (also the SE version) were not as good with harder to drive phones..maybe u have an earlier version? Then i can understand why u dont have any love for that amp.
So pls...keep ur attacks to urself..and respect my opinion... Let others decide for themselves if they decide to listen to a 337/339.. Even if u think it sounds ****ty compared to ur super lyr...
I dont attack beats headphone owners also when i read them saying its best headphone u can buy because the bass is bonkers (still dont know what that last word means lolz)..i just smile and let it be.. As we all love our music... So pls..relax..if i wanna talk about that amp in a positive way..or even if i said its better then a cavalli gold (god would kill me if i did that lolz)...just relax and think: that guy is nuts... Or something..lolz..
