I've been looking for some TS5998 for months but no luck so far.
Tungsol 7236? I'll have to look up on the 7236 type

http://jaben.net/forums/index.php?topic=17223.0
I'm not sure you can access the above page, but this person have 3 pairs of TS5998 for sale.
 
I find TS5998 is very powerful, dynamic, tight bass, solid-statish sound, but not as smooth as RCS 6AS7GT, although the bass is not as tight as TS5998.  But that with my previous Darkvoice 337.  Boy, I missed  my DV337

Nice pictures. what tubes did you get?
 
I just got a message this week from LF that they're shipping out my tube cover. Good news :)
Did you get a tube cover with it?
 
What 6080 tubes are the warmest? RCA?

Man, this thread is depressingly silent...
 
Anyway, just wanted to mention the Hifiman HE-500 sound great with the 339. I'm still waiting for my ALO recabled LCD2 to arrive, but I'm sure they'll be just as great (at least)
This afternoon I'm giving my new Beyerdynamic T70 a listen.

If anyone can tell me how it sounds with a "silver" silk driver HD650, maybe it might be less silent a few months later. :D

It's simple awesome. The tubes give the Senns the perfect sound, it was my fav combo (before getting the top tier headphones).
I've had it with the HD600 as well and it's equally great, the only think this amp isn't that good for are highly sentitive cans and iems (imho)
The 339 gives the Senns that perfect strong bass, great mids and nice trebble (not sharp or too detailed)
Honestly, you can't go wrong. Other would confirm this, but as you can see they're not really active anymore (must be because this amp is so great, they need nothing else :wink: )
And besides, Ryan is a nice fellow to deal with. Don't forget to ask for your tube convertors of your liking (i sugest the EF80) and the tubecase that comes with it.
 
Keep us posted :wink:

Oh, so yuking is Ryan ya? :D I can speak Chinese with him, so I hope when I order from him it wouldn't trouble him too much. :) Noted on the tube convertors, I'll need to do abit of studying on tubes though. My previous studies were totally different, being on 12AU7 variants of tubes, but that's ages ago....

To be honest I think I'll be doing minimal tube rolling if possible since I seldom use my HD650... My HD650 had seen very few hours of usage since its purchase on January this year. I've probably not even worn it over 100 hours, cause I have a tendency of using my earbuds more often than my HD650. Still, as I am purchasing a desktop CDP soon, I think it'll only be fair if I give the HD650 another chance and try to set it up as my bedside/leisure rig. Hence the thought on the La Figaro amp. Great to hear impressions from you who did try out the HD650+339 combo though, an assuring advice. Many thanks. :)
