How does this compare to the Little Dot mkiii? (obviously the mkiii has no DAC, so I'm just comparing them as desktop headphone amps). I'm planning on using these with the 600ohm DT880s, which I hear work well with tube amps, but was wondering if the mkiii is worth the premium over the t1. I haven't seen too much information online directly comparing the two.

@hpfalcon Good news for you sir, we've got all of those here in the office. If you're interested, I can take a listen and compare the two amps for you later this evening. Let me know!

sure, thanks. However I did just read something about the T1 tube being bypasssed when you dont use the DAC, which would make the T1 not a tube amp (for my purposes, since I only need the amp). source: faq from http://www.head-fi.org/t/633006/aune-t1-usb-tube-dac-amp-discussion-thread-see-first-post-for-faq

@hpfalcon Yup, figured you were interested in how the amp in the T1 compares to the MKIII. My plan was to use the T1 as a source, hook up my MKIII for a listen, then unplug it and compare with the headphone out on the T1 (using it's own integrated amp).
