Little Dot 1+ clipping concerns.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

It only clips on the computer that I am using right now, and the clipping is constant. The computer I am on is very weak and slow, and that is why it is clipping.

.

Also is the clipping damaging my headphones and the Little Dot 1+?

 

EDIT: The clipping is not loud, it is kind of quite.

Are you sure it's the Little Dot I+ that is clipping? Or the audio signal coming from the computer? Could easily be the latter. Try turning down the volume coming from your computer a little. Also, if you are listening to modern music, enable replaygain volume leveling on your media player.

It's the computer, it worked fine on the PS3 Bifrost combo, or when using it with just my MP3 player.

 

I am playing modern music, but it clips even when the volume  is mute. My computer volume is set very low right now, and it still clips.

I don't understand how it can clip when the volume is mute???confused.gif You can clip an amp by pushing it to the point where it can longer accurately reproduce the audio signal. If there is no signal, there cannot be clipping.

Perhaps your problem is something different. Can you describe more?

I just thought about this midway though the post.  I read a while ago that the Little Dot 1+ is very sensitive. 

So I moved the Little Dot 1+ away from the computer tower and it stopped.

 

I had to hide it from my parents in fear they would turn it off, thus stopping the burn in of my tubes. 

 

Thank you for the feedback though.

Yep. Tube amps can be sensitive to electronic interference. Easy to pick up a hum smily_headphones1.gif
