"... Comparing to the LD2+/++, the mids were not as liquid-like and vocals were not as intimate..."
I'm in LOVE with my recently acquired Little Dot II++, which I've also started to use as a preamp in my living room setup.
Was thinking of picking up an LD Mk III for bedside use (so I don't have to keep dragging the II++ back and forth), but I'm very concerned about this loss of liquid-like mids and vocal intimacy, compared to the II++. (The review later states the vocal intimacy returned with a better source, but what about the mids? Are there certain tube rolling combos that help make the III more like a II+ and bring these qualities back?)
In addition to the liquid-mids/vocal intimacy loss, it seems in general, the III is a less tube-y sounding amp than the II++? Is it that drastically different than the II++, which again, I love?
Or is it similar in tubey-ness to a II++, but better?
Thanks for any help you can offer.
