    Tube Amp and High Impedance Headphones

    I'd like to start by saying that I'm 98% sure I've found my "end game" planar magnetics, LCD-2 Classics. Thanks to the thoughtful people and kind advice here on Head-Fi. I mostly listen to EDM, Jazz, and Classical. My thoughts on headphones I've tried: Sundara: Didn't like the build. Pads hurt...

    UPDATED: Tung-Sol 7236 Vacuum Tubes for GOTL, Lyr 3, IHA-1, Darkvoice, etc.

    Tube rolling 'Darkvoice' La Figaro 336 classic.

    I got the updated Darkvoice model, the La Figaro 336 'classic'. I knew from the start that the original tubes were far from adequate, in fact nearly any tube amp is a DIY job to get it right. (With the exception for a few super expensive headphone amps.) So swapping tubes is a good idea better...

    Dark Voice 336SE with low impedance headphones ?

    I recently purchased (perhaps too hastily) a Dark Voice 336SE headphone amp for my brother's upcoming birthday. Now I've learned that there might be problems with my brother's Sony MDRXB 400 headphones which have an impedance of 24 ohms. Apparently the Dark Voice works better with high impedance...

    Darkvoice 336SE alternatives and a "medical" question

    My DV 336SE is strange. After it gets hot (20-30 mins) it causes my lungs and throat to get sore. I know it sounds funny, but it isn't as it must be evaporating something that irritates my breathing (based on my research I guess it might be epoxy resin). I have a question - did anybody else...

    Matrix M-Stage best for $250?

    Is the Matrix M-Stage the best amp for $250? I think it's a solid state amp. this will most likely be used with HD 650s so i'm not sure if a SS or tube will do me better.    On a side note I really wish there was a sticky thread with best amps at each price point. The same for headphones. I...

For those of you not in the know, I've spent the last several weeks coming up with ideas and parts on how to take an old version Darkvoice, and mod it to be the most synergistic thing...
