The comments have been buried in threads so you will have to search entire posts outside of few main reviews.

Comments have been mostly good, but check out the new LD portable and all tube amps for updated thinking from Mr. Yang.

Last question bother you all with. If you had to choose between the Micro Tube (with the upgrade), and the MK 3, which would you buy? I am looking for the most enjoyable experience, not exactness. That doesn't mean that clarity can take a back seat, though.

Thanks,
Tri

With what headphones?

How do you describe enjoyable? Do you mean musical? comfort? best sound at low listening levels?

Ety6i (I am going to try and find one of those impedence increasing cables for the Etys) and Grado SR80. Planned upgrades include AKG 601/701, and Grado SR325i or higher.

Enjoyable would be musical, emotion envoking as the artist intended, but also something that makes you want to move along with the music.

Also, how durable are tubes? I'm planning on being careful round either one, but I am kind of clumsy and accident prone.

Thanks,
Tri

I have a micro tube and the tubes are inside of it rather then top mounted like the MKIII. If you have kids or pets this sounds like a good way to go. I used mine to power my 701s and they sounded pretty damn good i think.

I don't think a fish or two will make a difference, but as I said, I am accident prone, and I have friends who are careless. Let's just say that is sat on my desk in the back of my bedroom (that's where I spend most of the listening time). If one of my friends just tossed one of my shirts or something, and it hit the amp, would there be any damage? I know tubes a kind of durable, because one kept falling out of a guitar amp and didn't ever break.
