Thanks very much!  I guess I will roll the opamp and the tubes as soon as they come in.

I recently ordered one from David as well.  I also waited 6-7 days for a tracking number.  I got impatient and sent him an email inquiring whether it had shipped yet....he sent tracking number and shipped that day.  I would send him an email.

That's about how long I waited before it shipped and I got a number.  The actual shipment took so short though, that I actually got the package before I got the tracking number!

BTW, I drove my HE-6 with a Little Dot I+ on high gain. I had to really crank it to get a decent volume, but nothing exploded and it sounded quite nice. smily_headphones1.gif


Also, I rolled in a OPA2107AP and the difference is noticeable, it has a lower noise floor and blacker background. I believe it sounds more transparent too. For the cost, which is free if you ask TI for samples, it's well worth it.

so you just ask em for one and they send you one? Free? I'm just using the op amp the LD1+ came with, would it be wise for me to ask them for one? Does it really make a huge difference? especially considering the fact that I have upgraded tubes

Is that interesting that you are getting enough volume from the Little dot 1+ to drive the HE-6. The OPA2107AP makes a noticeable but not necessary a huge difference that I like.

post #1286 of 2044

right, so I have to sign up for IT and then they ship me one? It seems to take like 4-8 weeks though O.O.

Made a difference for me, and not in some mystical way either. I can actually hear a difference in background noise.

Yes, go to that page and click the Sample/Buy button. You put in your name and address and they'll send you a sample. I just told them it was for Home Audio, which is true.

Yes, it will actually drive the HE-6s. There's not really any headroom, and it's likely pushing it to the max it will do without clipping, but it sounds good.

Took 3 days to get mine, they shipped it via FedEx ground. You in the USA? Also, you can request up to three, which is what I did. Figure it doesn't hurt to have spares.
