The russian 6n6p power tube seems to make the sound a little less organic IMO.
thanks so much. thats exactly what i, and maybe others were looking for. really appreciate all the help you give ppl donunus.

Guys, can a Little Dot MK II drive AKG K701 to its fullest potential?
Please share your experience.
Thank you.
post #394 of 452

I just ordered 6H30 tubes to try also ordered 6n6p replacements plus GE RCA and Sylvania 5654/8ak5 types. Has anyone used the super tube in their MK11 yet mine will be here middle of the week.

If you want a budget amp to drive the k701 better than the ld mk2, the cheaper ld1+ might even do a better job.

I use the 701 on my Little Dot mk11 with no problems. When I was going over this with David when I was goinf to order the LD1 he told me the 11 was better and I have no problems driving the 701 with them to loud levels. They work fine.

ok so the ld1+ should be ruled out then but I can tell you though that the 701s sound thin with the ld mk2. They need a colored amp like the heed canamp to get the proper amount of bass at least

Received my 5654 GE RCA abd 6ak5 sylvania the GE are close to the Mullard I am using. Real early but they all have different sounds. Just ordered some EF95 Mullards and my ^H30 tubes should be in this week. I like the GE 5654 very nice.

Just Wondering ...
Has anybody tried ecc804 (6/30L2) as the power tube ? the pinout for the Mazda tubes looks the same as the 6H6P but looking at the specs the anode current might be less as is the mutual conductance ...

In reply to that post that I made about the 6n6p power tubes, I was using the ef92s back then and the 6n6p didnt really have the best synergy with them. What I have found out is that the stock power tube is slower yet has a more forward presentation of vocals than the russian 6n6p which is a faster and crisper sounding power tube. Now I feel that the Russian power makes the driver tubes better represent themselves in giving their own sound without the added coloration from the stock 6n6 power tubes.

And by the way, my best driver tubes currently for my ld mk2s are the WE403B

cheers to team 6n6p/we403B!

By the way, this ld mk2 really loves my beyer dt150. This is where it can really show its doing its work because it is a big improvement from a uDac in driving the beyer beast. Senn hd580s for example are not really improved as much from uDac to ld mk2.

Would it better to purchase this or the Little Dot I+ for my Grado 325is?
