    Can you roll tubes with this amp or have to stay with stock tubes?

    According to the manual that came with my MK II there are two different input/driver tube families it accepts. A jumper change is necessary to change families. One family is 6J1 based. The other isEF92 based. The 6N6 output tubes need 6N6 replacements.

    It (Little Dot) also has three gain settings to accommodate low, medium and high impedance phones.

    It sounded OK with the stock tubes. With the replacement driver tubes there is more "there", there. One of these days I'll get around to swapping out the power tubes. Right now I'm very satisfied with the sound.

    As for your Senns, I suggest you try all three gain settings and use the one that places the volume control closest to 12 O'clock at your listening level with your phones. That's what I did with my current preferred phones (Monolith M-560).

    Sorry for the typo in post number 3 (has been corrected). The output tubes are actually 6N6

    I have a hybrid headphone amp that uses 6j1's for drivers. Replacing them did sound better.
