it is possible?

 

Sorry for my bad english!

 

Regards Dom


 

I don't see why not, since Little Dot IV supports EF91, 92 and 95. M6am6s is EF91 tube. So you'd just need to switch jumper on the little dot (dunno how that's done).

Thx for u fast answer.

 

But if i switch the jumper no problem with the 6H30 Tubes?

No. The jumper setting only affects the driver tubes.

Cool :) Enjoy

For the 6AM6 tubes (EF91 equivalent) you need to change the jumper or else you will get horrible sounds out of your tubes.

Just a heads-up to subscribers: my MK IVSE is advertised in the amps section (220v version).

 

Cheers

Can anyone comment on the Synergy between the LD MK IV and Grado's?

if they work at all together.

I'm soon to enter your ranks.

I have used my Grado SR325is with my LD MKIV SE and was very pleased with the results.

post #235 of 493

Thanks :) that was one of the main make/break points. i wanted a "All in one" Amp. 

I think ive found it..

Another who uses the LD MKIV with woodied SR325i.  It's a nice combo.

Just curious - would you remember what gain setting you used it with?

post #238 of 493

Thanks Brooko and rosgr

 

between the two of you, this amp is now in my sights.

 

Quick question... since my main headphone for these will be the HD650 and will be listening to a fair bit of EDM

 

I'm thinking of these as aftermarket tubes: voshkod 6zh1p-ev

 

nice, cheap, and supposedly very good.

 

as a balance between dominant EDM and a still large proportion of rock/metal i cant help but feel these would be best. but i might be wrong.

 

does anyone have any ideas that could be better?

Even with stock tubes, I find the Little Dot IV + HD650 is fantastic for EDM. I regularly listen to house music for hours on end and absolutely love the sub and midbass response... It's just awesome, in a word. Even as I speak I am listening to Add2Basket's Intimate & Underground session from 2009 and find myself engulfed in ear-massaging bass :). I am not a basshead at all (well, maybe a little - i like my house music groovy and a little punchy and bassy), but it's just beautiful. Trance is equally good as well.

I listen to all kinds of stuff like Tiesto's ISOS and Magik series, the Renaissance series, Balance series, Hernan Cattaneo's work, Joris Voorn, Way Out West, Robert Babicz, just to name a few. Maybe you are familiar with any of those artists? Anyway, it sounds very good. The HD650's bass response and general sound signature to me is a very good fit with any EDM I know.

wow thanks :)

my main styles are trance (all variants) and i have a very large softspot for hardstyle (listening to Defqon.1 2009 atm)

I tend to be a supreme basshead on the go (DT770 + zo2) but less so at home, i still like a healthy amount with my EDM though ;)
