Joining the Little Dot Family

post #1 of 515
Thread Starter 
I just completed my transaction with David ordering the Little Dot MKIII with an extra set of tubes!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been reading all your threads on these amps and decided the MKIII was my best option for my first tube amp. Man....I can't wait!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will certainly post my review upon it's arrival.

All of you were 100% correct about David and the customer service of Little DOt. He is an outstanding gentlemen to do business with!!!!

It would be great if it arrives before Christmas but I kinda doubt it will.

Just another member of the Little Dot Family!!!

Welcome Roger! Congratulations on your purchase of the MKIII! As I'm typing this, I'm listening to my Senn HD-650s through my LDII++ tube amp and I can just imagine how great your coming experiences are going to be!Little-Tube (David and crew) are some of the fastest shippers from China, so hang in there...you may get lucky before Christmas! Welcome to the family!!

Thanks guys! My current set up is:

Sony scd-ce595 > Go Vibe 5 > Senns 595 & Grado sr 80

I know the amp is currently the weak link in my chain so I'm very excited to hear the improvement the MKIII makes. I'm sure it will be an awesome experience that I can enjoy for years.

Yes, you will enjoy it and it sounds great. Really good value for money.

Welcome aboard.

When you've gotten used to the sound of the Mk3 you might want to consider reading through the tube rolling threads and roll some tubes. The best in the EF92 family is the M8161 and the 5654 family has lots of choices too.

You are about to become owner of one of the best bargains in Head-Fi listening.
Break-in takes a while and it is a pleasant intro if you can get a pair of CV4010 / M8100 Mullards for the time it takes the amp to settle in. Do a search or post a WTB in the forsale section. They really are a smooth sounding tube. And LD ships FAST, usually 5-6 days max to Florida so you should be about the same.

So Merry Christmas! You are really going to get a great deal of enjoyment from your new amp. Welcome to the ranks of the many who already have.

Welcome to the Little Dot family! Let us know your experience with the MKIII once you get it. The sound of the MK3 can be changed dramatically with various different tubes. I've been fully enjoying the MK3 since the first day I laid my hands on one.

Well would like to wish you lots of listening enjoyment with your new amp. I have been reading about LD amps and many people are very content with them.
I have just joined the family too...I just purchased my first amp, the MK V.

But I'm a noob at headphone equipment. I do know my electronics though! Looking at the pictures, I can say the components and PCB are of good quality. I am sure this will sound great and is for sure worth $350.00 shipped!

It's kind of hard to decide among all these amps out there. I have spent 2 weeks reading hundreds of posts only to come back to the amp I had seen when I had first searched this forum! But, I did learn alot so it wasn't wasted time.

The RSA Hornet for example, costs $50.00 more than the MK IV an MK V and I am pretty sure it won't even come close in SQ and driving power. Yeah it's a portable amp vs a home amp, but the cost is the same and when your listening to music in bed at night like I do, I would rather worry about SQ than size. BTW this amp is meaty weighing in at 7.7 lbs and has a 11.8" x 8.26" footprint. This is just to show how much of a good value the "MK Series" amps are. Weather it be Tube or SS amps, you just cannot go wrong by purchasing one of these amps...they are the best bang for the buck. That was one of my deciding factors.

All I can say is that David @ Little Dot seems to know what he is talking about and if he is recommending me this amp, he is sure of what he is doing. He has answered ever email I sent promptly. Communications is an overlooked part of a company that most people tend to forget about untill they need their amp serviced/repaired. That was one major deciding factor for me.


All I know is that between the Ipod, amp, headphones and line out cable, I have spent 1K+ this month, all because of U guys.

THX! Darnit!

Some pics for now to drool over.
