I prefer the Heed, the soundstage is larger both L to R as well as the depth. I find the Heed has better detail and airiness. On the other hand the Heed costs twice as much and it should be better.

So how is the amp sounding to you at this point?
Well it definetly has a bunch of burn in, so in a nutshell:

At the price this sucker is being sold I can not think of a single thing wrong with it.

I just did a few op amp roll on my MT. I swap the original op amp with opa 2134 . NE 5534 even the cheap LM833. guess what, i found LM833 has the right sound for me so far. the sound was more balance on my MS-1. i think the relatively low slew rate of LM833 makes it more suitable to work with tubes. because tube stage has much lower response speed than solid stage. of course, this is my personal feeling, may not fit your taste. I also did a few experiments on the power supply unit and that really made the sound different. i will post a new thread about this soon. cheers!

I got rid of the dc blocking caps on the input. This gets rid of a cap in the signal path which is, when possible, always a good thing. The improves a little in all areas. I have found the MT takes a long time to break in correctly and improves a little as time goes on past 400 hours. I think the 6111 tube would have a big impact on the sound but so far I have not got the right pin-out of the stock tube as the stuff I got off of the web is not correct for pin-out.

Until then . . .
Have you received your Micro Tube yet vcoheda?

About 20 hrs of burn in. Very cool looking amp. Sounds great. A little boomy, but I'm sure it will tighten up. Maybe sometime next week, I'll compare to my ++.

Sure, looking forward to it
post #53 of 57
have you already made the comparison, or is it in a different thread. Please post a link if so.

Hello vcoheda-

Just wonder how you compare the two Little Dots... I know you have had some fun with the II++ (tube rollin' are ya? )

Do you plan on searching for other tubes on the micro?

I returned my Micro. Did not care for it as much as the ++.

can anyone direct me about getting the LD micro or the Little DOt 1+? Howcome the Little dot 1+ has less power output?

Its the most important part of the amp. Imagine the chassis of an Enzo with the engine of a Camry. Sound yucky enough? That's the significance of a good PSU.

^^Congrats Miguel, I'm loving mine, BTW did you get the upgraded PCB?
