post #601 of 1362
Just to keep those interested up to date with my problems with the mkVI+,the vender has been very helpful I was told that the power tubes need to be inserted in order (who knew?),they are numbered on the base,once this was done the volume problems disappeared ,now the only problem is the massive volume imbalance caused by the no.4 tube dying just got to wait for the replacement they are sending then I can get down to some serious listening,also I've now got my XLR cables which helped.

Another good replacement pot for the alps is the Dact ct-2 stepped attenuator.

As a potential future VI+ owner, the only low tier component is the volume pot. The Woo uses a nice DACT stepped attenuator.

 

But I love tube rolling and since the WA22 uses 6SN7 which are crazy pricy I don't think i'll be getting that amp.

Good point, further investigation would be required. Forgot about the balanced requirements.

I was snooping around Chinese sites on the new Yulong Da8, and happens to see the new Little Dot Mk9 pcb. Single-ended version of the Mk6, in mkIV chassis blink.gif

If you can read Chinese

Basically it uses the same topology as the Mk6 and Mk8; 2x 6080, 1 6H9C, 1 RCA in, 1 Preamp out, external gain switch. Chassis is same size as the Mk IV, but I guess 1 less hole tongue_smile.gif.

Shame really as the Dact is much better than the Alps blue.

Interesting. I love a good rumour. Surely its time Little Dot came out with a new amp.

That may be true and the Alps blue does feel a bit rubbery. However I am not planning to use the pot as much.

It may not have the meter and fans. I believe that Sword Yang was designing DAC’s for awhile.  It also confirmed to me that Sword Yang has not decided to branch out to speaker tube amps.  The half MKVI will fill the hole in the Little Dot line up.

Earlier VI's were using motorised ALP's? Anyway, if there is no sound imbalance at lower levels there is no need to swap out the pot. 

 

Come to think of it, it's been almost 5 years since the VI and VII were released as LD's flagship amp's, when the heck are they going to release a new flagship?
