Little Dot MK VI / Little Dot MK VIII SE Owners Unite - Page 71

post #1051 of 1346

Glad to see you got your MK VI+, such a good amplifier, the first few days are so exciting just trying it out, burning it in a bit and getting use to the sound. Have you found that new sounds can be heard in music you know well? Maybe an extra guitar, or extra drums? I found a lot of missing details that I never knew about were suddenly quiet noticeable when first using the Little Dot MK VI+.

 

I bought the Little Dot DAC I to use with my MK VI+, it works well, good synergy. I got it before the MK VI+ and I heard extra details when using the DAC I with the MK I+, then after getting the MK VI+ even more details appeared. The DAC I is good value for money and guaranteed to work perfectly with the MK VI+ with very good synergy.

 

I hope you are enjoying your new MK VI+ as much as I did, and as much as I am continuing to enjoy regularly.

It's an amazingly good looking amp and pleasent sound. But I ain't running it in balanced mode atm since I am still waiting for my cables. I didn't expect the amp to be here in less than 3 weeks. So I have to wait and see how the sound will be then :)

Guaranteed :biggrin:

And another butt-kick when you'll put a NOS quad of power tubes.

 

That's a nice picture you put on your avatar.

Ah yea I want to do some tuberolling aswell :D Noticed how expensive tubes is tho so I gotta start saving up ^^

 

Thanks, on the picture it's in company with a laptop, hegel dac and hd650 :) In a month or two it will have another friend aswell :D

You can get outstanding performance with relativly cheap tubes.

 

There are some advices on this topic, obviously they are still true !

Second that. I've found some of the cheaper ones are better than the expensive ones.

Hope you can wait! If there is a better amp I haven't heard it. The sound is perfect for me, clear with just a hint of tubiness, without being too warm and fuzzy. My headphone set up also outperforms my speaker set up, if only the LD would power speakers too!

Yea I can wait :P I haven't even tested it's full capacity yet so and i'm still quite pleased atm :) Dad is going to make me some balanced headphone cables aswell soon. Waiting for HD650 connectors to arrive and also looking if there is anywhere in EU where I can order Audeze connectors :)

Baronbeehive, you are so lucky to own a quad of those Bendix ! I'm thinking I'll never find them at a decent price...

For your speakers, don't forget to try the pre-out of the LD if you can, if you get a fraction of the sound that would be great !

 

The tube rolling activity is so pleasant... I'm stocking a few pairs of those oldies, and some of them sound incredibly good !

My advice is to buy some adapters, and take a walk out of the highways...

post #1061 of 1346

Androb, you are talking of the mini XLRs, or of after market cables ?

 

In the EU you have forza audioworks and toxic cables, who are good and affordable.

Unfortunately it was potentially dangerous to use it with my direct coupled power amp so I ended up getting a cheapo tube amp, the miniwatt N3, see my profile, which has turned out to be remarkably good so I'm ok atm. Talking of those Bendix I feel the same about those lucky Western Electric owners, but if you can find someone who is selling the odd one out of a stash you might be able to persuade them to put together a quad for a quick sale, I had a bit of luck doing that a while back and the price was reasonable enough to get a few spares as well.

post #1063 of 1346

Yep, there's this seller, who's offering 175 USD per Bendix... :D

Yea just the mini XLR connectors :)


Oh damn, the forza seems really priceworthy. Almost just as cheap as making my own cables :P

post #1065 of 1346

For female mini XLR in EU, you can find them at Thomann, or Audiophonics (and others...).

Yep, Forza is both well priced and well finished.

You can sometimes find a group by on forums... with a small discount.
