New hybrid amp by Little Dot, I+ - Page 3

post #31 of 758
Today I paid my new Little Dot I+. It's coming with WE408A's and with a red power LED.

Can't wait to get it in my hands and roll some russian 6Zh1P-EV tubes in it and then compare it to my MKIV SE with RS-2's

Waiting on reviews, seems like this product could find a place in the market very easily as a second and/or starter rig.

Are 408A really compatible with 6Zh1P-EV/EF95 ? I thought 6Zh1P-EV/EF95 were compatible with 403A/B but not 408A

They're not. The 408A has a 20v heater voltage versus 6v on the EF95 and they're not swappable. You must change jumper settings to use the 408A on the LD I+.

This would be great if it drives Grado's well. It would make me get a secondary rig to leave at home.

Very interesting given the low price... waiting for reviews!

They aren't indeed swappable, but LD I+ has that switch inside that changes the heater voltage. I bought it with WE408A's because I want to explore that tube family also.

I have no info when my amp is about to ship from China. David contacted me and said that right now they can't acquire the upgrade tubes for I+ so I took some 5654's from MKIII/IV in place of the WE408A's.

I was contacted by David, saying that they'll ship at the end of next week. I must say that David and Little Dot are scrupously correct with regard to communication. I am continuously being informed and kept up to date, without having to ask for information.

I am really looking forward to this amp (it's gonna be my office amp and I want to pair it to a K501 and a K401) and this has been a very pleasant, first transaction with Little Dot for me.

I would love to hear your impressions with the k501. Can't wait.

The W408a is a great tube sound, everyone should love this at this price level. Ebay has them available all the time for a very good price.

Does this amp require balanced tubes? Is it self biasing?

Kids are gonna get MkI and this new I+ all mixed up, and knowing Little Dot there will be a I++ in a few months.

Looks amazing though, I never cared for the power tubes much in the Mk series anyway, an op-amp based amp with a EF95 input stage is gonna rock, hard. Oh man, look at that socketed op-amp, you thinking what I'm thinking?

HDAM ?

I bet this little beauty with an HDAM is one kick arse little cottage rocker (need an amp for the cottage...).

Peete.
