I'm having trouble deciding between this and the Darkvoice. Can somebody help me decide?
I have both. With good tubes the DV is good (I have found USA made Tung Sol tubes through Leeds Radio) and very close in performance to the CTH with JAN Amperex 6922 driving HD600’s. Lower impedance headphones like Master and Dynamic MH40’s and Etymotic 4XR sound better on CTH but honestly both sound really nice.
have joined the Focal Elex drop so well see what I think come May 22nd.
I’ve had limited time with the Elex’s and they are not burned in but I think they sound excellent on both the CTH and DV. No aberrant behavior on DV. I do have upgraded tubes but with those it sounds good to me. they sound different with DV being warmer and more tubey. CTH is a little more detailed. Both drive the Elex well so far. FWIW
