Fully Balanced Flagship Amps

The flagship models of the Little Dot series, the MKVI+ and MKVIII SE have a fully balanced architecture and impressive aesthetics to match. Audiophiles have compared these amplifiers favorably to high-end headphone amps like the Woo Audio WA22, and they’re designed to be used with high-end, high-impedance headphones like Beyerdynamics and the Sennheiser HD 800. Using the highest-quality components across its construction, the MKVI+ has exceptional dynamic range and can produce clean amplitudes of 70Vp-p into 120 ohms. The MKVIII SE improves upon the MKVI+ by adding a single-ended output and a dual-mono architecture, complete with independent amplifiers with their own isolated toroidal transformer power supplies. 

Note: At checkout, choose the MKVI+ amp (base price) or the MKVIII SE amp (+ $100) in black or silver and 110V or 220V.

The Reviews Are In

Giving the MKVI+ a score of nine out of 10, Head-Fi user glitch39 says, "As noted by other users before me: Only by having a fully balanced source can you get the most out of a balanced amplifier. Balanced configuration does not disappoint. I expected huge soundstage and got it. Excellent instrument separation and layering are good terms to describe the sound. I can clearly distinguish instrument placement within the well-defined soundstage. With classical music, it just blows me away."
