An upgrade to my Little Dot MKII

more_vert
I made the decision to upgrade my modest Little Dot MKII Tube Amplifier this past week and it just got here yesterday. This is a used piece of gear, it's the first generation Woo Audio WA6. I wanted to go with Silver as it would match my Solid State Burson Conductor 3 Performance Headphone Amp/DAC/Pre-Amp, as well as the Schiit Lokius I also picked up recently. I wound up with Black; it was in the best condition of those I saw available, it was priced better and it came from an audio dealership with a brick & mortar store which displayed a working telephone number and an A+ rating with the BBB so I knew that I was probably safe in dealing with the gentleman. The Lokius is brand new. What I've learned is that I am going to have to do some figuring out how to deal with all of this new stuff, including how to get it all onto my 6 foot desk along with my lamp and modem.

Apparently the Lokius has to be connected between Amp and DAC, so it would fit in between the Emotiva XDA-2 and WA6 just fine as one system being fed via laptop as my source. That's simple enough, but then it gets complicated for me. LOL WHAT would my SOURCE be to run into the Burson? And HOW? I like the option of being able to listen to both tubes and solid state. Is there some sort of a switch box I could use? The Burson will be the amplifier running my powered Peachtree M25 desktop speakers. There is also a Polk Audio Sub woofer. I could run my Marantz CD5003 Compact Disc Player into either system via Optical cable. I'd like to be able to use the tubes on BOTH dynamic driver AND planar headphones, something the Little Dot was under powered for. I shouldn't have that problem anymore. I'd also love to hear the HD600 and Elex on tubes. Oh and for me, no streaming of music. I'm an album guy, always have been. No more vinyl here but I have plenty of titles around on CD so there's always something to listen to.

That’s some nice gear🐬👍🏻 I'm sure you can find some sort of switcher that will work for you, there's all kinds of gear and esoteric audio sites, it just takes a lot of research. Or, you could be smart about it and ask your friends if they could be any help. Yes, I believe I can help ;-) Let me suggest the Schiit Audio SYS passive pre/switcher might work for you, and the beauty of it is that it costs $49 usd on their website: Schiit Audio: Audio Products Designed and Built in California and Texas. Hope this helps bro

I bought it. After much thought I finally realized that it's nothing more than a damn switch. Nothing to make noise. I can connect my laptop to the single set of RCA's on the back and then two pairs out of it to my other stuff. I am such a dufus! Thanks again!

MrChiSox You got it, glad it helped. NOT a dufus! They make audiophile stuff confusing on purpose. It was just info you hadn't remembered yet ;-)
