Little Dot Micro Tube in the House! - Page 3

What is the voltage that the 2107 can run on? Just look as the specs of the LM4562 and if the voltage is the same range and it is a dual opamp, no problem. You could even get an adapter board and use two 627's or any number of opamps like the 5534 on an adapter board. The tube will have the most influence but everything in the signal path will have some.

So, what do you think of the sound now?

Burn In

I just ordered LD Micro Tube. When you guys burned this thing in, did you let it run all day (24 hrs.). I feel like if I let it run all day, something could overheat. No? I guess my question is: what was your process for burning this thing in, in periods or just let it run non-stop. How hot does it get too.

Thanks

Nice pics for a really cool looking amp. I wish I really needed another amp to warrant buying this.

Tubes rule.

Bump for my burn in question for LDMT owners, before this thread gets buried on page 2.

Thanks

LDMT Burn-in

In response to question on burn-in, I let mine run 24hrs a day for about 10 days. It was hooked-up to a DVD player with headphones connected to the amp. The amp got slightly hot (be careful not to touch the tubes through the cut-outs) but it never overheated. I listened to the amp periodically during the burn-in process and never detected distortion during the burn-in process. Hope this helps!

Yes. It does help. Thanks. I really just wanted to know if I could run this thing 24/7 without it blowing up. I guess the answer is yes.

Has anyone done a thorough comparison between the LDMT and the LDM II++? Is it worth the extra 20USD?

I have a K701 and using a ATH-HA20, and I'm planning to get the LDM II++ soon

If you mean the LD Micro Tube and the LD2++, I will have both by next week. So after some burn in, I will be able to compare them. I'll post some impressions when I get a chance.

Until then . . .

I read that LD considers the Micro Tube the best amp. It does not lack in stage depth and width and solid bass response and it has very good transparency .

I just opened the amp and since it is Version 2 I thought you may want to see what it looks like. Click on the thumbnail to view the full size pic.





BTW what do the switches do? Thanks.

Those open up into some huge images. Nice to get the detail. Jpegs can help with file size. :^)

So how is the amp sounding to you at this point?

At this rate this could turn into a must have amp specially at the $200 cost.
How would you say this unit compares to the Heed Canamp?
