Beautiful picture. Just got my new 339i. The Meridian gear is nice too. Always fancied one of their old CD players.
Thanks a lot! The new 339i looks beautiful! I have a meridian 596 drive, play cd like a champ, if you still use CD, try one, it's stellar!
My 861 produce zero noise floor, I put the 339 on max volume level in order to bypass the pots completely, and I have zero noise hehe.
I then have the luxury of remote volume level, and I can also use the equaliser with my Stax setup. Great combo of modern DAC and preamp with tube power section ^^

Very nice! It's refreshing to see your thoughtful component selection and layout. I especially appreciate the fact your rig isn't stacked component on component like the Tower of Babel.

Best,

Joe.

Yes, that 339i is beautiful in silver, and that is a handsome tube set. Stock or something else?

How does maxing the volume on the 339i bypass the pots or do you mean you are just using the preamp out of the 339i to feed into 861, controlling the volume on that instead? I do something similar but with my setup but I only need the 339i up to 9, maybe 10 o'clock and still get plenty of volume out of my Phonitor xe.

Those GEC and mesh tubes are definitely not stock, high end tubes for sure as 339i comes with stock Chinese tubes.

I recognize those Yenona/Freeboss closed backs up front.
Nice try. The farthest to the right are a pair of OneOdio Studio Pro 50, bought for 25 € or so. I use them for riding my bike, as I'm not afraid to damage them. Plus they keep my ears warm in winter. :stuck_out_tongue:
The info is in my previous link with all the pictures, but here you go, from left to right : Sony MDR-CD1000 (25-y. o.) / Audioquest Nighthawk Carbon / Hifiman Sundara (revised earpads) / Sennheiser HD600 (restyled version, with an original vintage hinged box that isn't on sale anymore with the 600 - box courtesy of Sennheiser France) / OneOdio Studio Pro 50.

That is the old 339, i bought it 6 years ago I think. And it's been completely upgraded inside, i mean almost every parts have been upgraded...

The tubes are :
English made GEC CV2523
USA made Tungsol 6SJ7GT

I have GEC L63 inputs tubes that are noisy, but i will get a new pair in order to have a full English setup hehe!
