La Figaro 339

The 332 series (S/C) were developed for low impedance phones as Yuking has already stated. I never look at US products, I can't help there, sry :)

well my amp is in the shop, he says it should be easy to fix. we'll see.
I got a surprise mail from Yuking saying he is shipping the tube cage when they are back in stock.

In the mean time I also ordered some RCA grey plates and 5998 Tung Sol as well to compare with the 6AS7G chatham & standard tubes.
This thread is quiet :D

People shop in trends; unless it has Audio GD or Schiit in the name then the masses aren't interested. From reading some of the Schiit reviews you would think it's the only tube amp out there, I've even seen that some people are going to buy the Schiit DAC as soon as it comes out... this is without hearing it, what does that tell you?

I doubt I will review it - I can't imagine it's that different from the DV337, which I really liked and commented on quite extensively.

Fair enough, there is only one of you (although sometimes I think you have replicated yourself based on how quickly you respond to anything with "skylab" in it. it's like your version of the bat signal)
However, they did happen to address one of your complaints on the 337, moving the driver tubes forward  seems to have eliminated the low volume tube hum. Both my D7000's and my reshelled custom TF10's are dead silent.

That's good to know. That really way my principal issue with the 337, which I otherwise liked quite a lot, and was a very good value for the money, I thought.

My amp is fixed, as Yuking figured a resistor was blown. Picking it up on Friday, it cost me 45€ to get it fixed, let see if I can get it back from Lafigaro

Just look at this while you wait.
By the way, I love it with the LCD-2. However, my only point of comparison is the M-Stage, which sounds really good with the LCD-2 especially with the class A mod. However, the LF339 sings with it.
Skylab (sorry Rob) is there a more powerful tube combo for these amps (DV337) I think it would benefit from more power especially for the HE5-LE and it couldn't hurt the LCD-2 either.

The 5998 instead of the 6AS7G will provide more power, and sounded great with the 337.
