Hi everyone, I am looking into start in the world of tube amps and I am considering the LD MKIII (ebay, 235 from china), MKIV (ebay, $329 from china) and the Bottlehead Crack ($279).
Sennheiser HD 202/280pro/595/650
UE Super.fi 5 pro
I am considering these for their price ($200-$350) and for my new HD650's. I have read the suggestion of the Bottlehead Crack just about on every thread when it comes to the HD6xx's, but I am also looking for something more versatile that I can use with my other gear and new cans in the future. The concern here is the OTL part of the Crack, which I am not sure how the Littledots differ and the fact that he Littledots have a preamp function (again, not sure what this means, but more is better right?).
My wallet might be afraid so I might just go with the MKIII, but will they drive the 650's sufficiently and pleasingly?
Edit: I have not done any DIY work on amps or anything, but I have on other electronics, so I have the equipment to build the Crack.
I appreciate anyone's input!
