View Full Discussion New to tubes and tube rolling?
Dont be intimidated by tubes or tube rolling. The technology is older and sound quality is "warmer" than solid state. Tubes rock!
There is a lot of information out there. Google Little Dot/DarkVoice tube rolling. Whatever amp your interested in or purchasing. Also, search same on HeadFi.org
Ive graduated from DarkVoice 336SE to the Woo Audio WA3 (OTL amp) and the WA6 (transformer coupled) amps. These are the entry level Woo Audio headphone amps. Build quality and sound quality destroys DV and LD. Can be picked up used for 400-500 depending on what tubes seller is offering. You'll quickly learn, it's easy to spend double on tubes (vintage/older are best- NOS) than what you spent on the price price of your amp.
Main thing, is to have fun and enjoy the music!
Should I go for this or the 336se? And is there anything else I should get when I go for an amp ?
Youll regret this purchase in time. Start with 336se. It's a good starting point and will give you a "tube" vibe
Thanks, and any other amps that are better then the 336se?
O hell yes! Since you asked. I went from DV to WOO amps. Killer build, quality and value IMHO.
If you want me to be totally honest, the DV is of poor quality components. Known issues etc.
If you have a little bit more in your budget, buy a Woo amp. I might be selling my silver Woo WA6. Read the reviews on HiFi.org
If you're interested or have any questions on Woo, email me: email@example.com
That Woo Audio WA3 is impressive but the black looks so much cooler :). I will step up to Woo Audio soon :)
