Hi MrEeleventy. I was attracted with your siggy. My plan is to get LaFigaro 336C and seems like you owned DV 336Se. So, I'm just wondering if you can share your impressions for this two combination? And have you tried Crack yet? If yes, how will you put 336SE with Crack. Somehow I think T1 sound better than the price but for now I'm looking for warmer amp since some track can be very bright with my HD600.
BTW, I'm still on EH 6922 tube and wait for my OG from Ohio which maybe more than one month to arrive at my country.
I haven't had a chance to listen to the Crack but you can find a comparison of the LF336c vs Crack on Headfonia. There's also an indirect comparison with Tyll here. Indirect because he's comparing the WA3 but from the way Tyll notes the differences, from Crack vs WA3 and Dave on Crack vs 336, the WA3 and 336 seems to be similar in sound. They both used the HD650 btw.
I did a TL;DR for both articles on the T90 thread.
With all that aside... I love the combination of 336 & T1. It's musical but yet detailed. Spacious sounding. There's less of an edge on the highs which makes things less grating and artificial/digital sounding. I don't find the 336 to be too warm. The tubes I have, I roll for a mid range warmth and tight well extended bass, which I get. I also have tubes for when I'm feeling like EDM which will fatten up the bass but still works for all the genres that I listen. I definitely like the combo and won't be changing it for a while. The T1 as a dac is fantastic value, O2/Modi like performance with the bonus for tube eqing.
