    Little Dot II++

    Here's some initial impressions.. The amp has been running for close to 2 hours, and it's warm, but not hot. Definitely runs cooler than my LD2+. My amp has a blue LED, not a yellow one, the blue LED is not nearly as bright as the one on the LD2+, the one on the LD2+ could easily light up my...

    Little Dot II++

    I ordered my ld2++ early last week, so it should be here soon. I'll post comparisons with the LD2+ when it gets here.

    cheap amp for the AKG K701

    I love my ld2+ with my k701's, and I haven't had any quality problems at all. My ld2++ should be here next week (it was very cheap since I already own a 2+), so I'll be able to post comparisons when it comes in.

    How long can you safely leave on a PA2V2?

    Gary said people have kept it on for months at a time without turning it off. Just make sure when you have the adapter plugged in, that the amp is always left ON.

    Letter to Little Dot -- LDII+ owners, PLEASE read

    I'll probably keep both, and just spend the 99 bucks for the new one. I like the sound of my LD2+, and if the 2++ doesn't have the same synergy, I can sell it on ebay.

    if we could find a supplier for the soviet 4n1n, could it possibly solve the issue? or is it going to react the same way as the 4p1s?

    AKG K 701 with or without amp?

    I thought my MS-1's sounded better than my k-701's unamped.
  13. crazy_nate

    Any benefits to using ms1 with PA2V2 amp?

    hardly noticable difference imo

    K701 amp suggestions?

    Just another vote for the LD2+, goes great with my k701's. Significant difference going from a pa2v2. Yeah, it gets reasonably hot, but I can leave it on for 3-4 hours, and it's just fine. Usually a 15-25 min. warmup is best to get really good SQ. It'll sound its best after 15-20hours use...

    Sennheiser PMX100 or Grado SR60

    my vote goes to the px100, I reeaallly reallly hated the sr60, couldn't even find it bearable to listen to.

    RS-1 vs k701 Comparison

    I've heard the RS-1 on several occasions, first post basically sums up what I think about them as well. However, it's probably because my ears have been trained to the k701's, and I am just use to the AKG sound. Then again, I was never a fan of the Grado sound, I hated my old 225's, 325's.

    Be patient with your 701's!

    Be patient with your 701's!

    Oh man, was I ever pissed when I bought the K701's. They were unbearable to listen to, highs were shrill, and anytime there was bass - it would just distort. After 100 hours, they became more bearable, then I played around with a few amps, and found one suitable for it, and now I couldn't be...

    Little Dot LD II+ Review and comparison to LD II

    I just got my LD2+ last week, matched up with the k701 - it sounds great, significant improvment over the pa2v2 i was using. But as others have said, it does get veerrryy hot.

    Write audiophile headphones you really hate

    I don't necessarily HATE the grado line, I just don't prefer the sound, and I like many other under $400 cans a lot better.
