Little Dot I+ Tube Rolling - Page 83

post #1231 of 1975

and where could I purchase these? Ebay links?

post #1232 of 1975

You can always email a vendor and ask what they have... examples:

http://www.vacuumtubesinc.com/

http://www.33audio.com/

And of course a Google search will give many more options such as Tube World, thetubestore, etc...

 

A few from ebay. I don't know anything about any of these sellers:

The Sylvania GB-408A with gold pins is pretty well thought of, but will usually come at a higher price.

What about something like this (just to throw some options):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2x-MATCHED-TUBES-6J1P-EV-GOLD-GRID-6J1P-EF95-6F32-6AK5-NOS-PAIR-/250958698676

 

One thing is for sure they are cheap, but I haven't tried any of these sellers.

post #1234 of 1975

does anyone have any nice tubes that they are looking to get rid of? I surely will pay for something to update my standard LD1+ updated EF92's

post #1235 of 1975

Can anyone in the know tell me whether these tubes would work with the LD I+ please?

Thank you!

Absolutely not!

 

post #1237 of 1975

how can you tell?

post #1238 of 1975

That is a 6DJ8 or 6922 tube that is not compatible for use in the Little Dot 1+ hybrid amp. You can look at the first post here for compatible tubes.

Proceed directly to Mullard M8161 and LM4562. biggrin.gif (that's where I'm at)

 

Actually all kinds of great combo's with LD I+.

 

I don't run the LT1364 any longer because of the DC offset issue. Has anyone ever reported any kind of issue at all with the 1364? It's a great opamp otherwise.

 

I have a new Schiit Asgard amp and happy to say the LD I+ holds its own against it when paired with Grado PS500.

 

The LD is a real gem for the price.

 

Get some jumper pins like these.........they are much easier to work with (no tool needed):

is that the op amp you are referring to?

post #1241 of 1975

again, anyone interested in selling me some tubes? I've found struggling through E-bay to be tiresome, and bitterly confusing

post #1242 of 1975

Buy yourself a pair of these and be done with it:

You can easilly spend more on tubes and opamps than what this amp is worth.  You would be better off limiting your opamps and tubes and save up for something more exiting down the road such as a better amp and cans.

post #1243 of 1975

I know I just want one pair of updated tubes and and one opamp. I def will be updating my cans next, after I get a cheap(ish) DAC

post #1244 of 1975

what do those sound like? I like em, cheap and look awesome. I just hate to wait that long :(
