    Audigy 2 ZS hissing issue...

    Just tried that and also switched to stock drivers... same issue. AGH, thank you for reminding me of how much I HATE stock drivers on this card :P haha... just made it back to the kX...

    Simple tube question...

    So I'm aware that tubes go bad after so many hours. I've had Mullard M8100 and Ulyanovsk 6S19P-V tubes in my DV332 amp hooked up to my AKG K701 for about a year now. They still sound pretty good though lately I've noticed a hissing sound at higher volumes. If I turn the amp more than about 40% I...

    K701/DV332 left-channel buzz, not ground loop...

    Thanks for the help-- yeah, I know that tube rolling has been long overdue. I've liked this amp from the beginning but I've been waiting to put some tubes in it that would really "blow me away". I'll update with my thoughts once my M8100 and 6S19P-V tubes arrive. The eBay seller I bought from...

    K701/DV332 left-channel buzz, not ground loop...

    I messed with the tubes a little further this morning and tried bending the pins out, to no avail. I tried switching the two power tubes around and the problem channel didn't change, so it seems that the problem is the shorter tube (don't know the name for it?). I figured since I was replacing...

    K701/DV332 left-channel buzz, not ground loop...

    Here's my deal: I have a DV 332 and I was experiencing a terrible ground loop hum. I got a Xitel Ground Loop Eliminator which really helped out a lot but I still hear a faint buzz, but it's only in the left channel. I am still running the stock tubes, I think I've had this amp for around 6...

    Darkvoice just released 332

    Question for everyone... I had some ground loop hum which I noticed in the past few days. I installed a cheater plug (3-to-2 converter) and it totally solved the problem. Is it okay to use one of these on a permanent basis, or does the amp really need to be grounded (which would mean I need...

    K701 + DV 332 tubes?

    K701 + DV 332 tubes?

    Sort of a bump for more suggestions, sort of an update... I've been listening to my 332 with stock tubes-- this is the first dedicated headphone amp I've ever owned, so it's all kind of new to me. It sounds great, definitely a lot more low-end and I even think the soundstage has somehow...

    So, let's talk sources...

    Right now I'm running a pair of stock AKG K701 directly from my Audigy 2 ZS. I have a DarkVoice 332 on the way, and I want to eventually have a source that is up to par with the rest of my equipment. I've never thought my Audigy 2 ZS as a bad card, but I realize there's better stuff out there. I...

    K701 + DV 332 tubes?

    Just made the plunge and ordered a DarkVoice 332 -- seems to be a very popular amp with enough power to drive these AKG K701. I should probably notice a big improvement even with the stock tubes-- right now I'm running them directly from my Audigy 2 ZS, which has enough power to get them to...

    Headband and K701s...

    $20?? I guess it's tough to go wrong for that price, as a good stopgap solution until I'm ready to buy a real amp... does it offer any improvement other than emphasizing bass? Also, what do you mean by sound-degrade?
