Yeah, I had the same concerns as well. I was initially looking at the LDIV, but I didn't want to go through the hassle of having to mail the unit back and forth overseas should any issues arise.

 

You should look at either the Schiit Asgard ($250) or the Schiit Valhalla ($350) amps. I'm looking at the Val for my HD650s. Or maybe some of the Woos if you can increase your budget.

I have the MKIV (with HD650) and i bought it from David at little dot. I must say his service has been great and hes quick to respond to any emails. Just to a quick search on little dot services at this forum and you will find quite a few happy customers. As for build quality, it's quite good. I have never had an issue with my amp nor have I had to deal with exchanges and shipping back and forth so i can't comment on that area.

 

Other than that the MKIV/ III are great units. the stock driver tubes are crap but once you get into tube rolling it becomes an amazing unit especially if you invest a couple of bucks into voshkod 6J1P-EV's.

 

just my 2 cents

Speaking of bumping: I have LD 1+ and HD 650 w/ WE 408a tubes. I am extremely happy with all acoustic jazz music with this combo! And yes David's customer care is tops! Alejandro in NZ

Ive used my MK IV SE for 2 years with no issues, David (Little Dot owner) is very quick and reasonable with questions/requests.

 

Also we've discovered some awesome tubes to roll outside of the manual, check it out!

post #1154 has table with required settings for each new tube. I use 6BE6 tubes right now which needs no modification at all and sound amazing!
