post #2011 of 2369

Audi A6 starts at 85.000 Euros in Turkey (USD 118.000). So cheap. :)  T90 is 530 euros (USD 737)

And did i mention , we have to pay off the 1 million in 10 years,so you got to make a crapload of money to afford one .A car only belongs to you in 10 years before it is scraped ... A pity frown.gif

 

Ahhhh, Aston Martin. Have fond memories of me blasting around the Yas Marina Race track in a Aston Martin GT4 (http://www.astonmartin.com/en/racing/series/gt4-challenge) an amazingly fun car.

 

Ok the Aston Vanquish with the 6.0 V12 and 565BHP is 1,185,500 Dirhams which is $323,024.00 US

I couldn't find the price of the convertible (volante) but expect it to be not too different.

 

Still: T90 - needs a Bottlehead Crack - once you hear this combination you don't want anything else.

selling my T90 for $400 after a month of A/B with my HD650. it's in excellent condition like when i first received it. it was bought from proaudiostar. i would really prefer local pick-up if you're in the long beach, california area near cerritos. it comes with the bag, box, and manual. PM me if interested. i'll end up posting in the F/S section with pictures tomorrow.

 

it turns out i like the HD650 midrange and bass pronunciation afterall which is why i am selling it.

 

 

now in f/s section. local exchange in california 90703 for now.

I've read a few opinions here on the DarkVoice 336SE, but would anyone else like to comment on it?

I'm currently using a Schiit Vali, but I'm thinking of leaving the Darkvoice at work (where I do most of my music listening) and leave the Vali at home. Thoughts?

@punit had the Darkvoice and I am sure he will let you know his experience. I discussed the DV with him and it's a good amp for the T90 which awakens the bass. But is bettered by the bottlehead crack. I would not hesitate if you are not planning on getting a crack. 

 

Cheers,

+1. MrEleventy   uses DV336 with T90. Maybe you can message him for more detailed comments.

The Darkvoice 336SE I used had 6080 / 6AS7 tubes for power & 6SN7 for driver but the one on MD says "Tube Used : 6N8P, 6N5P " so I don't know if they have changed the amp design ? :confused_face_2: 

 

Edit : Found out that 6N5P can be used as substitute for 6AS7, same for 6N8P & 6SN7. So it's the same design.

You guys are awesome. Always so encouraging when it comes to buying stuff! This looks a bit cheaper than the crack and a lot less work to put together! So I think I'm going to go for it...

Hello,

 

I just completed this amp:

I have posted several pictures and comments here as well:

Pix at post 2891,

 

My favorite headphone is the BeyerT90 and this new ODA amp really shines with these cans...

 

NOTE: This combo cost approx. $375. I would match this pair against a Crack anyday,

 

FYI

Alex

So I never pulled the trigger on the Darkvoice.  I've become pretty convinced that the Bottlehead Crack is the best match for the T90 under $400. Has anyone experienced otherwise? Also, how much does the speedball upgrade add to the sound?

 

Thanks again everyone!

post #2021 of 2369

I've read great things about DarkVoice amps.  Why not buy a used one and post your impressions after spending a good amount of time with the combo?

:popcorn:

I will go as far as to say that in terms of system synergy,BHC may be the best match for T90's under $1,000. If you can DIY , don't even blink , just order.

post #2023 of 2369
But order with or without the speedball?!
post #2024 of 2369

I have only heard the BHC with speedball, so cannot comment on without speedball. I would advise with speedball. You can also search on the BHC thread , a lot of members have posted comparisons between before & after speedball changes.

I strongly second that. The synergy is so good, that I sometimes find myself missing my 'work' system (Custom DAC, Crack + Speedball, T90's), and technically my home system is better (Custom DAC, Mainline, T90).
