Got my Little Dot I+ yesterday from the last drop. Quite a pleasant surprise seeing as how Massdrop sent me an email 6 days ago saying the expected arrival date was 3/15. First impressions are great. I am replacing a Schiit Vali 1st gen that I broke by messing with it (microphonics were unbearable). I obviously need an amp that is meant to be tinkered on.
I am using Fostex th-X00 Ebony's and damn do they sound good. The tubes (stock 6JI's) did sound super bright and just horrible for the first 8 hours of listening. That being said, the highs have come down a ton and the bass is starting to tighten up a bit. I wanted to burn these in and really get to know the stock sound of the amp before I start tinkering so I have a good baseline. I'll update after I have over 50 hours on the tubes. I'm excited to start rolling tubes and OPAMPs. Let the journey begin!
