Little Dot Amplifiers have taken the audio world by storm by offering a range of fantastic sounding valve hybrid headphone amplifiers. These Little devices have become a really popular way of listing to music from your IPod. The Little Dot Amplifiers are beautifully made and engineered and offer remarkable value for money. Here we offer a range of the best new old stock valves to transform the sound of your Little Dot amplifier.
The General Electric JAN 5654W is a military version of The EF95 6AK5 pentode.
The W Jan version had a number of final improvements for military applications with a rugged construction which allows the valve to operate in high vibration applications, this makes it ideal in the Little Dot amplifiers.

The General Electric 5654W has for a long time been the go to upgrade over the Chinese 6J1 valve. Indeed in many of the newer models Little Dot is now fitting these as standard.

This valve is an audio bargain as the General Electric 5654W produces a warm and very musical sound with especially fabulous top end response. This is what sets this valve apart from the rest as cymbals and horns sit a little forward in the mix making it a great choice for jazz and Blues.

The valve is leaner in the midrange when compared to the Mullard M8100 and has a fuller top end when compared to the Siemens 5654W. It also has a more laid back sound when compared to the Siemens but has little more punch and attitude than the Mullard M8100.

This was the valve that we used for many years to upgrade the Little Dot amplifiers and I am glad to see that Little Dot are using this item and are ditching the rather poor 6J1.

The set consists of 2 valves

2 x 5654W/EF95 Jan General Electric

Please note that the kit is for the valves only
