Intro to tubes :)

more_vert
Hello! I’m In the market for my first tube amp to match with my 6xx’s. I’ve been looking at the Little bear mk. 2 and the Darkvoice, but have zero experience with tube amps besides my guitar amps. From what I’ve been told, tubing these headphones really brings them to life! If anyone could help me decide, I’d appreciate it!

I am in a similar situation myself. I just bought the 6XX and paired them the DarkVoice 336se based on lots of reading here and elsewhere. I figured it was a good starting point beyond the Fiio BTR5 I am using for Bluetooth music listening on the go. I've been happy so far but my hearing is sketchy and I'm no audiophile. I just know it sounds really nice once it warms up, especially on acoustic and live performances in particular I've noticed. Good luck, it's a fun new world to explore :D

For tube amps look for one with a large bottle rectifier. The larger and heavier the power supplies / transformers the better.

Thanks for the advice! I’ll keep that in mind!

I’m sure I’ll get flack for it but I like the P20 by loxjie. You’re gonna want to get aftermarket tubes though. I’m using it in balanced mode with matched Russian tubes and I really like them. If you get it let me know and I can suggest the ones I got. youre gonna want to use balanced mode with that amp though. If you’re gonna do single ended, get something else.

I would add that a balanced setup will especially help whether tubes are used or not...
