I’m still missing this amp. When I say this amp is amazing I’m being totally honest. However after my 339 has been a $700 paperweight for several months now I’m unsure about ever purchasing anything from Drop again. I recently contacted support about the possibility of ordering the 339i. I was told that there is still no warranty other than the thirty day return window. I really miss this amp but the thought of spending another $700. on something that has absolutely no warranty is just too risky. Buyer Beware I Guess.

The silver version looks completely different and older. Anyone know if the silver picture is accurate and if there is anything different between them? I would prefer the silver version but it looks like a less well designed version with thick plates on top and less elegant cutouts.

Drop needs to think about non-US customers that they are missing out on. $60.25 shipping to Canada, plus Customs on top of that? With no warranty? Hard pass. Which is a shame because I've been eyeing this amp for years and would jump on it given the chance. But I can't justify spending close to $1200 CAD for a $700 USD amp that may burn my house down

Very understandable. I had similar worries when I bought the original 339 from here 2 years ago. It arrived with a broken tube, which was the salt on the wound when considering the duties, shipping costs, and wait time. Thankfully, Drop paid for a replacement set for me, but it meant I had to wait even longer to try it out. For me, I think it was worth it though. It's worked amazingly well since sorting those initial issues out (*knock on wood).

Either you deleted your last comment or Drop did? They definitely don’t allow any criticism. My biggest issue is they didn’t even act like they felt bad or wanted to help. I have been a good customer since they first opened Massdrop and spent thousands of dollars and to get absolutely no help at all is upsetting. The manufacturer was also unhelpful. I could have placed a new order yesterday as the amp was available but decided against because of the possibility of another $700 brick is just a risk that I’m not willing to take. Considering I could have lost my home due to this products malfunction I guess I am lucky that I was able to unplug the amp in time. Might be time to seek legal advice but I will probably just let it go and shop more carefully.

No comments from Drop on how they have helped out these ones that stink and smoke and worse. So there’s no warranty?

It doesn’t seem to be a common thing but those who have a lot more knowledge of tube amps seem to have a understanding as to what and why it happened. The only thing that is common is the fact that Drop won’t help when a issue like this happens. No machine is perfect however a manufacturer should offer support. This manufacturer says that Drop assumes all responsibility when they sell their products and Drop offers absolutely no support. That’s the only point of my post.

Just a warning. My Lafigaro 339 caught on fire tonight. Started having a strong odor last month and tonight after being on for about an hour sparks and flames It was always on a bar shelf and never covered and rarely used. Hope Drop stands behind it

Almost forgot, if I'm not completely wrong, they are based in Ukraine, so if you live in the US you might have to pay tax

This, or a bottle head crack?

Lieven from from headfonia reviewed the original 339 and seems to like the 339 more than the crack, hope this helps: He said: "Compared to the Bottlehead Crack, the OTL Crack is the faster amp of the two, it it clearer sounding and focuses more on the treble. Bass with the Crack is punchier but not as deep and it doesn’t quite have the same rumble. Overall the 339 is smoother, warmer and laid back with an even bigger sound stage. It just makes you feel the music better (softer) as the crack. The Crack is a great deal and an excellent amp as we already said in our review but the La Figaro 339 is the better amp for me." https://www.headfonia.com/lafigaro-339-my-fav-otl-amp/

I just happen to run the Master & Dynamic 40’s on my 339 a short while back. Don’t know what made me do it as I like the 40’s but never really use them “honorable mention sound”. It’s the best the 40’s have ever sounded. It’s a nice amp.

I like the Master & Dynamic 40 also. The new wireless version is good too but it’s also a little brighter too. However both sound so much better with amplification. The Red Dragonfly works great with them and it’s extremely portable
