    My Hemps sound excellent out of my little dot 1+ with a Burson classic v6 opamp and upgraded tubes but that amp is really susceptible to EMI and ground loop issues, I get random crackle and pops and there's a constant static that reduces if I put my hands over the tubes(noticeable when music...

    I was able to audition a pair of rs2e's from a friend and my impressions are remarkably similar to yours, I too prefer the Hemps but they are really close and it's up to individual preference at this point which one would prefer :gs1000smile:. I know this was mentioned before but it's a...

    Little Dot Tube Amps: Vacuum Tube Rolling Guide

    So I got the LD1+, installed the burson v6 classic opamp and the mullard m8100 tubes, and it sounds pretty decent but I find it fatiguing with my Grado hemp, I was hoping for a smoother more relaxed sound. I even find the stock tubes better in this regard. What is a nice warm bassy tube that...

    Little Dot I+ Tube Rolling

    I have a LD1+ on the way as well as some Mullard M8100 tubes, I am trying to decide between the burson v6 classic and vivid op amp, which do you all think would serve me better? I plan to use it with my Grado Hemps and a modi 3 dac. I'm leaning towards the v6 classics but I'm worried if it would...

    This! I had excruciating pain in the beginning with the Hemps after 10 mins of wearing them, but after stretching the headband I can wear it for hours.

    Those Akgs do classical really really well imho, I keep a pair of Q701's just for classical (not a fan of them for anything else unless I eq them or do the bassport mod). The only Grado I've heard that could come close was the GS3000e, I actually felt like it's a q701 merged with a Grado, very...
