post #8296 of 25047

  so the question was about three amps, and several replies , no real consensus , other than it just depends on one's own taste.

i think possibly one consensus would be, all three of the amps in question offer good quality , and offer great value, "if you like it, its good" !!

This is how it should be, man....it's all about what sounds best to our individual ears. That little Schitt combo is one of the coolest products I've seen in a while...I'm glad it sounds good, too!  

 

I would bet you'll like the LD better once you swap out the stock tubes, but you'll have no problem at all finding a buyer if it's not for you. And how bout some pics of that Schiit combo, eh?

I'm sure the LD is a great amp and I debated the LD1+ and Asgard. CNET's Steve Guttenberg's reviews on the Asgard and Valhalla convinced me that the 225 and Asgard was a good combination. He writes, The Valhalla or Asgard, teamed up with Grado's excellent SR225i headphones ($200) are a great way to discover high-end sound on a budget. Then, when they introduced the Asgard-2-an improved amp with two gain choices, I made my move.

 

There are a lot of people OTH, who love the 225 with LD products......choices, choices smile_phones.gif

 

Here's a link to the review if interested.

Man, I love this thread. Thanks for your input everyone. Choices, choices. This amp would be for my MS1i and the fantastic 225i that I purchased from jay.

I guess what I would really like is something similar to the cMoyBB 2.03 I have with the bass boost off. I really enjoy the "texture" from that amp.

The LD already has the Siemens 6AK5W's in it, so I'm waiting for the Voskhod 6J1P-EV's to hear if I like them any better.

Will take some pic's and try to send them tonight!

+1 on your reply!

Yes, the two out of three amps that I own are both nice, so yes it comes down to preference.

And on the other hand my 80's perform best with my Adcom GFP-710 hands down, for me, but the 325's for some reason don't perform as well with this pre-amp, but really perform well with Magni/Modi combo.

the thing with the little dot, you can change tubes types, brands, versions, etc, and get different sound, some substantially different, others subtle ,

I made the mistake of letting my wife listen to her Sennheisers through my EF2a dac/amp and so now I have one less tube amplifier to worry about. Now that I think about it, those were my headphones too!! Funny how that works!

Ah man...that a real bummer...now you're going to have to go through all that trouble of upgrading...what a shame *evin grin*

ms2  has developed a problem, the right cup is coming loose from the headband, the metal band inside the leather, is pulling out of the plastic piece (with the R on it)

Is your MS2 under warranty? You could try calling the Grado customer service to ask for a repair. Or maybe just stick it back with some glue.

So far, i like what i'm hearing with the stock tubes on my Little Dot +1, it makes my Yamaha DVD-S1800 sound at least as good as my more than twice as expensive, DVD-S2700.

 

In the last two days, i have tryed my HP and PS1000 with the little Dot, and with the PS1000 it could swear i was hearing detail that i had never heard before, even with my X-CAN V2 and DVD-S2700.

Dab of super glue on the metal band and pop that thing back in there... Once its sets your back in business!
