Sorry, I meant XLR mono output to the headphone
From the photo, it looks like the PHONO input is a 3 pin XLR combined with 1/4 TRS. I understand the TRS takes the stereo signal, but a 3 PIN XLR? Does it mean it only accepts XLR for mono input?
Please. I have missed out 220V version. Me and others looking forward for 220V. Silver color will be nice two. Regards, kim
Will the Neutrik headphone jack accept 4 pin balanced connection? Why so many headphone cable termination varieties in the first place?
I have owned Darkvoice 336 for a few months and I love it. I received my 339 a few days ago. First of all, 339 is a nice piece of beautiful equipment that is well put together and HEAVY in weight. Compared to 336, 339 has a much wider soundstage and more power to drive my hard-to drive headphones such as Senn HD650 & Hifiman HE-560. The sound image is much more 3-dimensional from 339. I also find that when I connect 339 to my balanced sound source (TRRS and/or balanced XLR outputs) , the image is so clear and filled with pleasant details. This draws the line between 336 and 339. And to me, the extra monetary investment on 339 is so well worth it.

I really LOVE my Darkvoice 336 which I use almost daily with my Senn HD650, Hifiman 560, and Audeze whenever I have free time to indulge myself. But for the past few days I am surprised to find that 339 is a few obvious steps above 336. I own both and glad I have both.

Although my new 339 came with 1 broken and 1 cracked 6AS7 (larger tubes). These 6AS7 were packed in their own small paper boxes next to 339 when they are all shipped together in a La Figaro box. I am glad the shattered glass chips did not accidentally touch or fall inside the 339. The 339 and its two smaller tubes were nicely packed together inside protective foams. The 339 itself arrived shiney and perfectly new in spite that both 6AS7 tubes came with the 339 are damaged. Luckily I have many 6AS7 tubes in my collection for my 336.

As soon as I switched to my own sets of 6AS7 tubes, my new 339 sounds AWESOME!! Love my new 339. By the way, the silver 339 looks really nice when mixed with my mainly black color sound gadgets!

Has anyone A/B tested this vs the darkvoice?

I bought both of them here at Massdrop. I like both. 339 sounds much wider and more detailed than 336. Also 339 allows you to adjust Right/Left volume. I A/B tested them for about 20 songs. It is an easy conclusion that 339 sounds more spacious with details easily be noticed and enjoyed. Both are great but 339 is a much more complicated equipment and cost more. So I think 339's extra price is well justified by 339's extra more enjoyable performance.
No 220.. amazing...
Yeah, any chance for more of the 220V version?
Oh shucks...I am too late for the 220v
apparently every amp is the best amp for its price on massdrop reviews
crazy.. so there was only 1 or 2 220V as we still need one more purchase to make the drop happen... I've missed it once before with 1 more purchaser needed .. :-O
no more 220V?!? grmm
Anybody can tell me how this amp fairs with the Audeze LCD3f ? thanks a lot !

Poorly. OTL amps don’t match with planars.
Same story again, when US citizen take all 220v option instead of taking the correct one for their country, but last time massdrop give us option for 220v again, so they read comments, that's good on massdrop.
TextureMan
WTF sold out in 220V already?
Where do the CDs go?
Finally 220V is here -> ordered one!
Pflugshaupt

Anyone interested on buying this amp in black, brand new, factory sealed? It is scheduled to arrive next week.

How much?

I have sent you an email
Lol no 220V, ok. Be that way
Yes, would consider only if there is an 220/230V option.
@Matt.T Could you arrange some 220/230 V of this? I know there are some people who are waiting for it.

Agreed. Remember when massdrop representatives actually read and responded to the community’s queries?
ShadyMercenary
No. That must have been before the internet existed.
Price keeps dropping on this
Is this a pure tube design or hybrid solidstate/tube? I ask because the heat vent in the middle makes me think there are active devices inside which need to allow heat to escape.
Why there is no 220v version :(
Wadi
Exactly!
I've been eyeing these for the longest time. Does anyone know when it'll drop again? Hoping they'd offer a 220V option the next time too.
So I requested this drop again because this time it (maybe accidentally) was 110V only . Hopefully the next time there will be the 220V option and I can finally join.
Enable 220V and the drop will happen because I will join. What do I need to do to get admin attention? Why is there an option menu if there is only one option?
Massdrop, Pleeeeeeeaze give us the 220V option!!
It seems this new drop doesn't have the 220V option... so it's a no-buy for me :(. The last drop (with 220V) didn't get enough buyers, so this is rather frustrating.
I would buy if anyone is selling.
Manbear
It just dropped and looks like price also went down from $650 to 625
mahee
I know. I would love this amp, however I became impatient while waiting for this to drop so I bought two others that I can’t return. Arg...
OTK 2 is not a tube it is the technician guy number(2) that tested the tube, an Russian vendor told me it is Oтдел Точного Контроля that means Departament of Precision Control. Seems the small tube is 6N5PJ, not sure. Anyway its a expensive amp chinese amp for the price, there is no baçanced cable option, also not a preamp.
