I just traded my CTH for a darkvoice with upgraded tubes (RCA 6as7g & Russian Tung Sol 6sn7GTB); I THINK I've finally found something that offers somethings "more" - not just different - over my conductor virtuoso! Need to hear more music to be sure of the differences that I'm hearing. Spent a while A/Bing but had to let this thing cool down after having it on for the latter-half of the afternoon; it's practically a toaster.
I had a similar reaction when I first heard my DV. I don't want to exaggerate about the sound, but it was sort of a revelation. It was the sound I had been looking for and wasn't getting with my other gear combos. The DV made me a huge fan of the 6xx where before I was ambivalent.
What headphones are you using with your DV?
Right now only the HD600. Still going back and forth on the differences I'm hearing, but couple of things I'm positive of is that decay is extended on the darkvoice vs my solid state and something funky - but pleasant - is happening to the imaging.
