View Full Discussion I really want this amp but my main headphones are the Fidelio x2's which are 30ohm.
This guy is saying that it sounds "heavenly" (username Baycode, about 3/4s of the way down.
I know the impedance is to low for OTL and I would not get the full effect out of them BUT would it actually make it sound worse? I would be really happy to hear from someone who might have first hand experience with the X2 on an actual 336se.
I have Philips X2 and darkvoice 336. But I bought 336 to drive my 600 ohm beyerdynamic T1.
X2 is very efficient and all my portable device including Fiio X3, AK JR , Beyerdynamic A200p and Bravo Ocean can drive X2 beautifully. All those devices give more details than tube darkvoice 336 does ( changing to vintage tube like Raytheon or gray VT-231 will help but don't expect the tube amps has the same amount of details as solidstate amps. )
I won't recommend 336 for X2 unless you have extra money to buy vintage tubes and looking for the less details but warmer tube sound.
Thank you so much for your reply, somebody with first hand experience is exactly what I needed.
