Nice review, thanks for your time and effort. Cheers.
I cannot tell you how many times I have had to uninstall and reinstall the drivers for my pulse to get it to work, starting with any time it is powered down, outages, accidental unplugging, hitting the power switch by mistake when giving it the old reach-around, etc. Doesn't always work either. I've even shelved the thing because I am so frustrated with it, only to come back to it because it sounds so good. Reminds me of most of my exes, except it was way cheaper.
Got an original magni in place of my vali last year. Sticker on the box said vali though. Kinda hoped they would let me keep it and send a vali.
Just for the record, no one should be butt-hurt by my opinion, as it is just that, my opinion (note how my post starts with " I would be..." not, "You should be..."). And the reason it says "would" is because I never bought them, I don't like the way they sound and thought they were overpriced, and nobody should care one way or the other what I think. Oh, and Dan, I only expect rockets if others are already making them. Cheerio.
I would be pissed if I bought a pair of 'phones for $1500, and 18 months later I was notified that for the one-time-only price of only $500, the manufacturer would be willing to convert them to what they should have been all along. And then people are thankful? Sheesh.
I never thought the original vali sounded very "tubey" anyway, although in terms of airiness and openness it is moreso than in tonality. I imagine I would like the vali 2 as well as the vali if your characterization is correct.
That too, Mike, in a less concrete way. I was actually talking about that huge cable (tail, right?) hanging out of the vali. I still use my vali on a nightly basis as my bedside rig with a big ego and usually my hd600. One of the all-time great audio bargains. Sounds way better than it has any right to, with the hd600s, dt880pros, or even the he500. Not so much with iems or low-z phones.
This is definitely a case of the tail wagging the dog.
