Excellent, Patrick! Glad you enjoy that combination, and nice to know the rest of us aren't crazy

Does anyone have an extra pair of TS 5998 they want to sell?

PM me if you do.

BTW , Patrick, does this mean you aren't selling the DV337? :)

I am glad you found a good match, maybe I hould try out those phones.

I love the 701s and the sen650 are too dark for my taste.

Tom,
Well, I'm not sure I can justify keeping the DV337 to effectively service only one set of headphones.

Ideally, the Bada--upon its belated return--will prove to be an excellent match for the DT880/2003 (as well as for the K501, already a known). If that were so, I then would sell the DV337 and use the proceeds to purchase a suitable amp for the D5000. You can bet that I sure would like to hear the D5000 driven to their full potential! : )

Patrick

...and that amp would be?



The million dollar question ?

The amp for the D5000? So far, I've had glowing recommendations for the Musical Fidelity X-CanV8 (GradoFan) and a Rudistor SS amp (Markl). I have a thread out soliciting advice for that amp as we speak.

My DV337 arrived today. There is only a very little damage on the tube cover, two of the banana plugs are crushed during the shipping. Overall it is in excellent condition.
I haven't order any tubes, just want to see if I like this amp or not. I am listening with the stock tubes now. Tomijx is right! The DV337 can easily drive my K701 very loudly. 9:00 is already too loud for me.
Even with the stock tube, overall i think I like the sound!!!
The female vocal and violin sounds very good, quite close to the sound what I am looking for, although the base is definitely too weak,

This weekend is going to be wonderful! Thanks everyone on this forum for all of the wonderful reviews and suggestions. Just a few weeks ago, I knew nothing about tubes. Now I start to enjoy it. What a change!

Thanks again, everyone!

Hi there,

I've read this thread and you've all convince me regarding the amplifier stage.

I'm a newbie on the head-fi league and I'm considering on aquiring a Darkvoice 337 to pair with DT880/2005 cans.

What are your opinions on this combo, i.e., with the DT880 2005 model?

Cheers,

Tiff

Ran the Darkvoice w/JAN Philips 6SJ7WGT and GE 6080. The D5000, though not optimal with the 337, still sound better than the DT880/2003 in several respects, especially detail resolution and separation, 3-dimensionality. While listening to a DVD (audio to a movie), the D5000 easily got the edge, too.

The Bada PH-12 mods are done--thank God! I can't wait to try the D5000 w/the Bada.

These headphones sound so promising on a less-than-best-for amp like the Darkvoice; a suitably matched amp (hopefully the modded Bada) will deliver ALL the musical goods that the D5000 have to offer.

Guys, I ordered the 336SE from Casque. A family friend used his account to order the amp (I don't have a credit card) and ofcourse, he entered the my address for the delievery. The problem is, the Paypal receipt says my address is UNCONFIRMED and Casque's eBay page states that I must confirm my address.

Will he still ship the amp to me in the UK?

nah, I have radio frequency interference, I could hear local radio station... is a big problem after I change to a sony monitor headphone.. too sensitive

I suspect rca cables, cos when I unplug rca cables the interference disappear, I have tried pairs of cable, so I am not sure why...

Hey all,
I'm selling my brand new 337. I don't really have room for it here. It's in flawless condition and only has about 40 hours on it. I'm willing to part with it for a good price. PM me if interested. Thanks.
