I'm using the LD I+ with my LCD-2 in the interim as I save up for a more powerful amp. It does better than one might think, but still doesn't drive them nearly to their full potential.

If the MAD EAR HD and Woo Audio 6 tube amps are likened to desktop amps than the Little Dot I+ sounds like a portable tube amp compared them.  I can't complain for the price.

A nice secondary amp.

I'm trying to remove the opamp in this thing.  Won't come out with hand.  Any suggestions?

nevermind, got it.

Guys, I'm thinking about buying this amp. My set is a DT 880 Pro, Schiit Modi DAC and a iBasso PB1 Toucan amp. Will the improvement be significant? I'm looking for better clarity and a more defined and wider soundstage, as well as higher volumes. One problem though is the one that I can buy is 220v, while my home's wiring is 110v. Will a transformer distort and make noise on the set?

 

Thank you very much for your help!

Has anyone tried the I+ with high impedance cans, such as the DT880 250ohm or 600ohm?  Just curious whether switching the gain would do enough to drive them...

Hello fellow LD fans.  I am having a problem with crackling and distortion on my setup.

 

I have narrowed it down to the headphone jack and/or the adapter.

 

I am using Grado sr80i's with an adapter on my LD i+.  Yesterday I was getting a crackling here and there while I was using it.  At one point I noticed that the song I was listening to was very unbalanced. The vocals were much quieter than normal, while some of the background music was much louder than it should have been.

 

When I fiddled around with the adapter and the jack, I could get things back to normal. 

 

I am assuming that the hefty cord of the Grado's has put strain on the adapter and jack.  What can I do to fix this?

 

Thanks

 

Steve

Sounds more like an adapter problem. Make sure the headphone and the adapter are fully plugged in with each other. The headphone  jack on the Little Dot 1+ is usually has a  metal jacket.

My little dot 1+  struggled even on high gain to drive my DT990's (250 ohm)... I tried it for giggle, and while not bad... it wasn't ideal...

Ah ok, thanks for that, sounds like a no go at this point then...

I ordered my Little Dot 1+ on the 29th from David on Ebay, w/expedited shipping, and I have yet to see it ship. 

How long does it usually take for it it to start moving?

 

And has anyone ever experienced extremely slow shipping for their Little Dot 1+?

But it works well for the 300 ohm HD800... the efficiency of the load makes a pretty good difference.

I'm reading the HD800's sensitivity as 102 dB... whereas the DT880 250 ohm is 96 dB... that seems like a small difference (to me) but I guess it's functionally quite a large difference.

Well its the difference between 50% of the knob on low gain sounds great (HD800) and 70% and getting some clipping when the bass hits hard (DT990Pro)

Wow, big difference.  Totally not in the market for HD800s though without a second mortgage... :D
