    Did you spend more money on your headphones or your source

    I'm  a little curious as to what head-fiers find more important.   Alright let's put it like this:   More on headphones = Your most expensive pair of headphones   More on source = Your most expensive DAC combo   So if you own 10 pairs of 100 dollar headphones, but have a 300 dollar DAC +...

    I have a Darkvoice 337 and the dual volume knobs are pretty annoying. Anyone know any mods such as installing stepped attenuators?

    Darkvoice 337 as speaker preamp?

    I have a Darkvoice 337 for sale that I'm not using, and I just thought of using it as a preamp for my stereo, since it has preamp outputs. My setup is a JVC R-X500 1980s computer controlled stereo receiver, and a set of Polk Audio Monitor 10s.   I just read a thread on this and trouble with...

    $500 Amp Search... Audiotailor Jade, Darkvoice 337, La Figaro 332C -OR SOLID STATE????

    I am looking to make an amp upgrade for my various low impedance (current hungry) cans. The unfortunate truth of it all is that most OTL circuits just can't do anything below ~200 ohms.   Hours upon hours scouring through all the Skylab reviews and impressions have led me to these 3, and I...

    (Proposed) Darkvoice 337 Dedicated Tube-rolling Thread

    If this thread already exists elsewhere, please point me in the proper direction (and I'll close this one). Otherwise, I thought it might be worthwhile to consolidate tube-rolling related discussion(s) on one, dedicated thread. : ) The 337 arrived for me just yesterday, having been shipped...

    DAC to pair with Darkvoice 3322

    I purchased a Darkvoice 3322 paired with my upgraded Zero dac and HD650 phones a while back and have been listening to my system with great enjoyment. Now, "upgratis" has set in. After looking through the forums, I see amp/dac pairing is very important rather than the quality of the individual...

    In some ways, it has never been easier to buy a headphone amp: unlike years ago, there is no shortage of them on the market, with a bewildering number of different brands and designs available. This “bewildering number,” however, turns the choice of which new amp to buy into a difficult and time...

    Review of Little-Dot MKIVse

    I posted this review over on the LD site a few weeks ago and several folks have asked me to post it here as well. This review takes you from ordering through burn-in and tube rolling. You will see time breaks, these are from additional postings that updated the review as I went along. I freely...

    Good Tube Amp for Denon D2000/D5000?

    I'm seriously considering a tube amp, but I'm having a difficult time finding one that can properly drive a 25 ohm headphone (D2000/D5000). Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Balancing Volume on Darkvoice 337

    I own one of these amps, and it's nice. I've never actually heard it shine since I was stuck on Beyer DT770 Pro 80s, which focus on bass. The dual volume knobs have AWAYS aggravated me somewhat and just recently they have driven me crazy! Is there a way to balance the volume knobs perfectly, so...

    Left more sensitive than right on my DT770/80 Pros

    I have a Darkvoice 337 with dual volume knobs (dual monaural), but it seems that no matter what I can't seem to balance the left and right. It seems that the right side is harder to drive than the left, because one twitch on the left equals 9 to 11 oclock on the right. Is it just me, or the amp...

    Is buying unmatched headphones worth it?

    I'm considering pulling the trigger on a pair of headphones, only the person selling them says that one ear sounds quieter than the other.   Is it possible to balance this out via software? How well does that work? Do unmatched volume levels point toward a malfunctioning driver?   in...

    Good Rock 'phones to pair with my new Darkvoice 337

    I currently have the DT770/80 Pros and they suck at rock and metal IMO, but I will darth them for hip hop. What are some good cans for rock for this amp? I know Grados are great for rock/metal, but do they pair well with the DV 337 well? If so, then I plan on getting the 325i's STAT.

    Headphones to pair with Darkvoice 337

    hey guys, recently eyeing a Darkvoice 337, listen to a wide range of genres, any recommendations for a good all rounder <$500? P.S. i have 2 grados but figured there will probably be impedance mismatch.
