View Full Discussion I'll repost a picture of my Darkvoice just because. Pictured with E-MU Teak headphones and Kanto Yumi powered speakers. DAC for this setup is NFB 11.28.
Highly recommend the Darkvoice!
Hey, I'm new to tube amps. Have you tried using the DV with these powered speakers?
I did when i first got it, but I don't keep it hooked up as a preamp because it's not always on. I mostly only use my tube when i'm using my Sennheiser HD 650. Now that you mention it though I want to hook it up again and see what it's like.
Thanks for the info. Let me know how it is. :)
awsome Pic bYtock, i also have the E-MU teaks, just wondering how well they work with the DV mines on the way i also have the 6XX's coming in december
The teaks sound fine with the DV! I have 'aftermarket' tubes in there so that colors the sound for me in a way that it might not for you, but the DV adds some bass impact, adds some treble sparkle and some soundstage. The most noticeable things are the soundstage and the bass texture/impact.
The 6XX are my favorite with the darkvoice. They react to the tubes in a predictable and pleasant way. Enjoy!
Which tubes would you recommend for the 6xxs? Would the stock ones do fine or should I upgrade right away? Thanks
You're probably best off finding a tube guide on either a retailer's site (some have nice descriptions of the sound of each tube on the product page) or on a forum. I'm no expert by any means.
Hi, sorry to bring up an old thread but do you still use your teaks with the DV? I'm getting the teaks soon and already have the DV so I was wondering how they paired
I actually don't use the teaks with the DV anymore. I got some ZMF Eikons, which pair nicely with OTL amps.
