Description
 
The La Figaro 339 is a high performance dual mono singled-ended output transformerless (OTL) headphone tube amplifier that uses the 6AS7 family power tube and comes with your choice of input tube.


An OTL Amp That’s Great for Tube Rolling
 
An upgraded version of the highly regarded DarkVoice 337, the La Figaro 339 tube headphone amp has a dual-mono, output-transformerless (or OTL) design that allows the vacuum tubes to drive the headphone directly. The result is a clear, accurate, distortion-free sound and the ability to drive low- and higher-impedance headphones alike. The 339 has updated components, like a CMC RCA socket and Neutrik headphone socket, along with OTK6Ж4 and 6N5PJ tubes that sound great right out of the box: “smooth, warm, and laid-back” with a wide soundstage, according to Headfonia. Of course, users can roll in different tubes to achieve a specific sound signature.


What does all of that even mean?
 
Output transformerless is an amplifier design topology where no transformers exist in the output stage. Transformers can be a source of distortion. Eliminating them from the output stage allows for better clarity and higher sound quality. Dual mono refers to an amplifier that has the left and right channel independently built in parallel. That means, two power sources (requiring two power cables), two sets of power and input tubes, two volume control knobs. Singled-ended means this is not a balanced amplifier and is meant to be used with single-ended headphones.


Why would I want two volume knobs?
 
A lot of reasons actually. Sometimes people don’t have equal hearing capabilities between their left and right ears. Some musical recordings can have channel imbalance problems. Sometimes your left and right vacuum tubes may have variations.


Since this is an OTL amplifier, can it only be used with high impedance headphones?
 
It's been well documented that the La Figaro 339 can be an excellent match for lower impedance headphones such as the HiFiMan HE-500's. Check the head-fi thread for opinions/reviews on headphone pairings.
