I just learned that Little Dot plans to introduce a new headphone amp called the Little Dot II++. One of the differences between this amp and the Little Dot II+ appears to be the removal of the 4P1S power tubes, which are replaced with Sovtek 6C19s. I do not know what other improvements are made, but replacement of the power tubes seems to be a very good idea. I say this, because I am still experiencing some arcing in my LD II+, despite changing the power tubes with new ones. I do not know if the arcing is caused solely by the tubes or the design of the amp or both. And I do not know how the amp will operate in the long term. However, since it appears that the 4P1S power tubes are not reliable and that as long as I have the amp, I will experience occasional arcing (and possibly other issues due to this), I was wondering if I could exchange my LD II+ for a LD II++. I paid $139.00 USD for my amp. I do not know the price of the new one, but I would of course pay for any difference. I would also pay the shipping charges to send the amp back to you and would hope that in sending me the LD II++, you would do the same -- that is, absorb the return shipping charges.
Because I do not expect the power tube issue to go away, I hope that you will allow me to exchange the amp, which is only a few weeks old, so I can remain a happy and satisfied Little Dot customer.
