Little Dot I+ Tube Rolling - Page 94

post #1396 of 1934
You should try military spec tubes....I use the GE Jan5654W tubes with my little dot mk3, and it's insane! Just a recommendation smily_headphones1.gif

oh if that's addressed at me I already have a set - they sound great - I'm wondering about rotating opamps in and out 

post #1398 of 1934

yeah it's really fun to do. I'll get on that once my wallet recovers and I can find a set.

Just remember to have a foundation.  If you roll opamps and tubes at the same time, it will be crazy to try to develop a base for a particular sound.  Stick with one and roll the other and vice versa..

 

Enjoy!!!

thanks for the advice - I'm keeping notes on how certain tubes sound with certain headphones so i can avoid bad pairings (i.e. grado headphones with voshkod tubes) in the future

Does anybody here have experience with Hifiman HE-500 and Little Dot 1+?

Just listening to this combination with Mullard 8100, stock amp  and gain to 3,5.

Compared to my Audio GD Phoenix it does have a little bit less authority and I can't turn up the volume too much as the stock silver cable is too bright(coming from HD650 and LCD2Rev1)for me.

Will get a Norse adapter for my balanced Moon chain mail so I can use it for the Hifiman too and I hope that will tone down the brightness and I can use a higher volume.

Also,because I use my Eastern Electric MiniMax DAC with a Psvane tube in combination with the Little Dot Hybrid,I hear lots of depth and all the "room acoustics",which is something I love as it makes the music organic and real.

is there a general consensus on which [inexpensive] tubes sound best with the LDI+?

how are the RCA Command's?

 

i use my LDI+ mainly with my Denon D7000's and sometimes with Grado SR225i's.

post #1406 of 1934

I'm insane. Spent a good amount of time tonight going through every page of this thread. I was decided on getting an Asgard in 2 months to drive a pair of RS1i's I'll be getting in 2 months as well, but I've always wanted a tube amp and with the time I spent away from head-fi, I had thought the LD I+ was more expensive, but it's cheap!

Will put up an ad to buy a used LD I+ in 1.5 months or so, so I can try to get everything in my hands all at the same time. If it comes stock, I'll be getting the OPA2107. Will also get the Voshkod 6ZH1P-EZ or Mullard M1800 pair of tubes. Sylvania Gold 408a's seem too hard and expensive to track down. I'll just keep an eye out for them after a few months with the other tubes.

^Is that the correct 2107? I only need 1 with the 8pins right? I see I can order a sample from TI, I'll use my ucla email, hope it helps. Any other op amps I should request samples from TI? - [That would match well with the 6ZH1P-EZ's/M1800's]

Sounds great 2107.

post #1409 of 1934
Decided to mess about with my LD I+.

So far I changed from stock to CV4015 EF92 M8161 9D6 MULLARD 8114. They sound pretty good with ah-d2000's so far.
There's bit more clarity and bass seems to be fuller.
They do heat up more than stock tubes though.
