    Little Dot MKIII + Beyerdynamic DT880 600ohm. What gain setting are you using?

    What tubes did you end up rolling with? heh. I'd love to try out a different set in my MK III. I was thinking 8100s.   Quote:

    Little Dot MKIII + Beyerdynamic DT880 600ohm. What gain setting are you using?

    The online reference manual for the Little Dot MK III suggests a different gain configuration than the one that came with the amp itself.   Excuse me, I was mistaken in my earlier post, but it wasn't my fault! I wrote that post while I was at work following the chart that David had sent me...

    Little Dot MKIII + Beyerdynamic DT880 600ohm. What gain setting are you using?

    Quote:   Going by the chart on page 8 of the Little Dot MK III Reference Manual I thought that a gain of 3, not a gain of 10, would be the proper match for high impedance (600 Ohm) headphones. I am pairing this amp with my own pair of DT 880 (600 Ohms) and was rather disappointed with the...

    Quality DAC for DT 880 and Little Dot MK III (< $450)

    I think I've narrowed my choices to the Little Dot DAC_I, Cambridge Audio DacMagic, and the Music Fidelity V-DAC II. Any thoughts on that matchup from owners?    Of course, these are all more than I was originally planning on spending, but I cant justify putting even $150 into a possibly...

    Best DAC < $400 (for DT 880 and Little Dot MK III)

    At this point I'm mainly wondering how much of a gain I'll hear by choosing a Beresford, V-DAC, or DacMagic over the cheaper but possibly less reliable Zero Dac 09 Edition.   I was pretty excited to buy a Zero because of its price point and positive sound reviews, that is before I read the...

    Best DAC < $400 (for DT 880 and Little Dot MK III)

      I recently bought a pair of DT 880 (600Ohm) headphones and a LittleDot MK III tube amp to go with them, and I was looking for a nice DAC to complete my setup. Any suggestions?   I'm a relatively new audiophile and have almost no experience with DACs. I've been doing research for a few...

    DT880 (32 vs 250 Ohm) for work and practicing guitar via guitar amp

    After doing a lot of research over the last month, scouring head-fi, and weighing my priorities, I am planning to purchase the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Premium headphones after demoing the 'pro' line at a local Guitar Center. I was originally planning to get a pair of ATH-M50s but was a little turned...
