Little Dot MKIII SE Balanced Headphone Amplifier
Little Dot MKIII SE Balanced Headphone Amplifier

Updated & Made for Modding

A sequel to the acclaimed Little Dot MKIII, the MKIII SE hybrid tube headphone amplifier features a streamlined design, a new balanced headphone port, and significantly more power from it. The tube pre-amp stage delivers a lush midrange and natural soundstage reproduction, while the discrete transistor output stage—with a fully symmetrical, pure Class-A circuit—produces a powerful, detailed bass response. Both fully balanced and single-ended outputs are supported. And like its predecessor, the MKIII SE can be paired with a variety of different tubes to achieve your desired sound signature.

Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice between 110–120V and 220–240V.
