I just received my LD Mk4 SE yesterday, it sounds fantastic with K701!!
The sound is much less harsh and the bass is more than enough for most of the genres I listen to (but it's not as tight, maybe needs more burn in).

Any suggestions for gain setting from K701 + mk4 users out there? There's a pretty significant difference from default setting to 5X, but not sure about 5x to 10x. Thanks!

Enjoy it.
Just try out which setting works best for you, it's relatively easy to change gain settings. Make sure you have the same setting for both channels.

I just got my MK IV SE to replace my MK III, and I have to say... wow, what an improvement. Using the stock tubes atm, but I'll soon migrate my 6N30P-DR + Mullard EF92 combo from the MK III.

The MK III made my K701s sound great, the MK IV makes them sound totally awesome!

Nice setup, enjoy it.
IMHO you'll experience more improvement/difference by trying various drivers than power tubes.

I got a whole bunch of driver tubes already, but somehow I found myself enjoying the Mullard EF92s the most on the MK III at least. Still need to get a pair of EF91s though.

Try a matched pair of Mullard M8100 if you have them.
post #803 of 833

What about the 120 Ohm impedance adapter that comes with it? I have a pair of Denon D5000 (And D2000, D1000), which has only 25 Ohm impedance. Is there ANY reason not to use that adapter or does it work flawless?

So how did you get on with it then?

Hi.

Well, I've had the MKIV se for well over a year now, and one of the powertubes has now quit on me.
So I'm looking to buy replacement powertubes for the amp, but can't really find any.
I find it really confusing figuring out which tubes would fit the MKIV se as this is my first tube amp,
and I don't really know all that much about different tubes.

Therefore I am hoping someone would give me a direct link to some powertubes that definitely would fit the MKIV se.
Preferably somewhere in europe, but at this point I'm no longer very choosy.
The make of the tube does not really matter either, as I just want a working tube(s) as soon as possible.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Look for a matched pair of 6N30P-DR or 6H30 Pi from ebay.

Can burn-in be done with one CD set to replay so that it repeats over and over?
post #808 of 833
Sure, why not? Just don't listen the whole time. No telling what could happen.

new to this forum and a fellow LD MK IV SE user...

has anyone try to drive a HD800 with the little dot mk IV SE?? how does it sound?
post #810 of 833
Having owned the amp for 7 months I suggest at this budget to look for an M3 build.
The LD is a nice beginner's amp but not one for the HD800.
