    Little Dot MKIII Question...Gains

    This thread at little-dot forum explains which gain setting to use to suit your headphones. Viewing a thread - Clarification on Setting Gain I prefer low gain with the HD650.To me, the high gain with the HD650 produced bloated bass with a bit wider soundstage when compared to low gain setting.

    Little Dot MKIII Tube Rolling

    The tubes I got are definitely not 6n6p. I compare them with my old 6n6p today and the size is different. They are a bit longer than 6n6p.Also the letters on the tubes are not 6H6n. It says 6N1n-EB on the tubes. I have contacted the seller and sent some photos. He said he sent me wrong tubes...

    Little Dot MKIII Tube Rolling

    I bought 4 6n6p-i from a seller name alexer1 from Ukraine and I got a package with 4 green boxes inside today. At the side of the boxes it says 6N1n-EB in Russian. Are these the same as 6n6p-i????

    Questions about HD650

    I game a lot with the HD650. Mostly FPS. IMO HD650 sounds very polite in FPS games. Everything trying too kill you sounds pleasant. No ear piercing bullet whistles or explosions. Everything is so smoooooth. It's almost like a picnic. That's why I use HD650 for gaming.

    Grado PS3000 Kryptonite

    Excuse me but will the kryptonite improve the sound? And it would be nice to change the inscription from Grado Professional Series to Grado Superman Series.

    Sennheiser HD-595 good for starters?

    IEMs is probably more suitable than full-sized. It's troublesome to carry a pair of big and expensive headphones around while you can just put iems in your pocket. Noise isolation and leakage are better too.

    Sennheiser HD650...Yes or No?

    I'd love to know what tubes are best for the HD650s , too. I've tried the Mullard M8161s and the 6ZH1P-EVs. While the M8161s are very detailed , they are a bit warm sounding making them not suitable for the HD650s in my opinion. The 6ZH1P-EVs have extensive high and low but not as detailed as...

    Little Dot MKIII Tube Rolling

    My MKIII came with a pair of 6N6P or 6H6n (not 6N6P-I). I bought mine around April - May last year.

    Upgrade from HD595?

    I went straight to the HD650s after the HD595s. If you drive the HD650s with your X-Fi you will notice better soundstage , more bass but bloaty and rolled of high compared to the HD595s. The bloat bass of the HD650s is really annoying without an amp. Amp under 300$ improve the HD595s but not...

    Any way to adjust the balance of a LD mk 3?

    Try turning the volume pot up a little. I have similar issue if the volume pot is below 20.

    Little Dot MKIII Tube Rolling

    I have a very very noob question. How do you remove a tube on MK III? Do I just pull it out straight? I'm very new to this and the tubes look very fragile. I fear that they might break if I use too much force.

    pop noise when turning light on/off

    Thank you for your help. The solution you suggested is very expensive for a college student like me though. Are there any cheaper solutions?

    pop noise when turning light on/off

    Everytimes I switch light or air conditioning on/off , I hear weird pop noise. I play my musics through X-Fi -> amp -> HD595. I tried iPod 5g ->amp -> HD595 , the problem was gone. Tried X-Fi -> HD595 without an amp , no pop noise, too. The problem seems to happen only if I have my amp...
