I've been reviewing the boards and I'm in the final stages of looking for an amp to drive a pair of Beyerdynamic 990 Pro-250. I would like to try a tube amp and I have no previous experience with them. I curretnly use a Teac DS-HOI stacked on an A-HO1 or a Fiio E7 when traveling.
I am interested in a Little Dot MKII vs a Little Dot I with the 6JIX2tube, price is a major consideration and I would like to keep the cost below $150. Will there be that much difference between the two? And, if money is limited should I focus more on the amp or the DAC in terms of sound quality? I wanted to eventually pair this amp with an entry level DAC in similar price range. Would it make sense just to get an Aune T1?
Does anyone have any advice for a new guy?
