post #121 of 1346

Well i'm a new owner as well. It only took 3 days to arrive in my country, but then again I live in south east asia so it's closer to China.

Mine was close to 5 weeks (maybe a few days shy). Try to keep yourself occupied with other things. I'd like to hear a review against the Lyr and WA5. It would be interesting to see how they stack up.

Yup, will be posting impressions once I get the mk6+. Hopefully my order will come in at the shorter end of the possible delivery time :)

Hey guys, actually, after going through all the threads on the mk6/6+, I haven't really been able to discern a clear recommendation for a good set of affordable driver and power tubes to roll. Mind giving me some suggestions?

post #125 of 1346

I love mine but only out of the balanced port.  Has anyone tried anything to clean up the hum on the 1/4" port?

post #126 of 1346


Has anyone done any heavy modification to theirs? I haven't seen to much info on mods for this amp, but people have talked about it.

I don't think anyone has. I've definitely got it with mine too. Really makes the line out useless.

That kinda sucks, but it wont affect me too badly since I wont be using it single ended or as a pre-amp.

This amp is a  pure balanced design so the SE out is only there for convenience sake. I personally prefer a great sounding balanced amp with a mediocre SE output  than the opposite. Well! it would be nice to have both outputs sounding great but considering the  price of this amp, I don't mind compromising. I  believe the MKVI provide the best SQ/money if you can be bothered to re-terminate  your cans. I has been favorably compared to Woo W22 and EC Balancing Act, which cost a lot more.

Anyway I am enjoying mine very much. I only wish the gain setting was accessible without opening the case as my favourite cans are DX1000 and HE-6.

post #129 of 1346

Certainly the gain setting being more convenient would have been really nice. The SE output isn't really a convenience if you can't really use it. The hum is loud enough on more sensitive phones to become really irritating to the point I don't use it.

the little-dot mk VI was born pure balanced(i had the first version).

with se output is only half amplifier connected.

performance is slightly lower compared to the balanced beta-22.

in my opinon, one part very cheap in this amplifier is the alps pot and driver tubes

for the rest, only first choice

@zenpunk: the dx-1000 was my big love; modded is fantastic

post #131 of 1346

The DX1000 remains my favourite headphone ( tried all the top tier phones) . Balanced and paired with the  MKVI+, the bass is incredibly taut and controlled, and the treble really open up.

Don't mind the dust.  Model of efficiency, draws about 130W at idle.
