im checking out little dot I+ reviews atm... i have around +/- $150 to spend for an amp. buying it from ebay will cost me another 45%-ish on import tax. so before buying i'd really like to know other members experiences with the amp.
my headphone is sr80e... what kinds of improvements will i get from the LD I+...?
btw, im new to audio speak... i've read this http://www.head-fi.org/a/describing-sound-a-glossary but it's a little confusing here and there to be honest.
i'd like to ask specifically about resolution. other than sr80e, i also had shure 940 before it broke. i felt the shure940 has more details than my sr80e.
is that what in audio-speak by "resolution"? because i couldnt grasp the sound glossary explanation of resolution..
will getting LD 1+ nets me more details and clarity (resolution?) than straight PC + fiio e10k...?
aslo... does LD 1+ includes mini to RCA cables in the package?
I have never heard the fiio e10k so i really can not compare the LD1+ to tham amp.
I can vouch for the LD1+ as being a very good amp with Grados......I mean for a very reasonable amount of cash you get an opamp and a tube rolling option....you do have to open the amp up to change opamps, but it is very easy.
Only thing is you could get bit by the tub bug
There is a huge thread about tube rolling options for the LD1+
You could still get awesome sound from a solid state amp and take the tubes out of the equation.
even when I upgraded from LD1= to the mad ear.....I still kept the LD1+....it is such a nice bargain of a hybrid amp.....kind of like your sR80, just a darn good deal for the price
