Even though everyone advised against purchasing it citing noise, hissing with low impedance headphones, buzzes and hums and so on, I still wanted to buy this iconic little headphone amp rather than one of its more modern siblings and cousins.
I ran the Little Dot for about 40 hours both with headphones and as a preamp on my tubes and solid-state amps, and I have to say, I did very well!
From the very first moment of listening you can perceive a really unexpected transparency, and obviously we're talking about stock tubes that, it has to be said, behave very well:
Great extension on the high octaves, nice dry and controlled bass, great airiness and an overall pleasant dynamic, all mixed together to obtain a sound that doesn't give any listening fatigue and is much more pleasant at high, but especially at low levels of evening and night listening of my jazz and classic favourites.
A special thanks to Audiophonics for the great attention and professionalism in handling my order!
See you again soon!
