Little Dot I+ is a hybrid amp, so you're both kind of right.

 

I'm not a fan of hybrids but .... the LDI+ is a great sounding amp.  It did me good for 2 years.

I don't have the MS2's, but I love the sound of my SR60's through vintage solidstate receivers, like my Marantz. It's a warm tube sound, but isn't quite as warm.

I am using the Little Dot MK III with my 225i's and am very much enjoying the sound.  I find the MK III to be a very good amp for tube rolling, lots of different sounds, it also responded nicely to a power cord upgrade.

Mapletree Ear really take the ms2 to a whole new level-bringing it alive like no other amp can do. It works well for rock, jazz, piano and most music except large scale symphonic orchestras. However if you are wanting symphoniies you have the wrong headphones.

 

You can pick up a second hand Ear for reasonable money. All Mapletree amps have transformer output to the headphone out so the 32 ohms is not an issue.
