She's my niece. Thanks.  
Yes that was a poor choice of words on my part. That is the perfect way to describe the two amps. The valhalla actually does sound like a solid state amp.
I have no idea why this amp isn't talked about more. Schiit did an amazing job with this thing. Better than the bottlehead crack with speedball in my opinion. It also costs less. I just got it and so far it is better than expected.
I've gone through a few integrated amps. A Sony TA-400, NAD C325BEE, and a  Marantz PM6005.  In my opinion they aren't optimized for headphone use. It could be different for other integrated amps but this is my observation from the ones I've heard. 
I got the last one at futureshop thanks to your post. Anyways after using the mixamp with the PS4 and call of duty, it is far superior to a regular DAC through USB or optical. I can now pinpoint exactly where people are on the map and where bullets are flying from. At first I thought my ears were just not trained to locate the sounds. Not so at all. The mixamp almost perfectly simulates sound around you. I can't believe I haven't been using this thing the whole time.
Having had these three for a few months now and rotating between them:   1. HE-6 = HD800 3. TH900   kayandjohn, great work on the analysis! The sounds like what I hear.
Read this thread: Not many people know about this DAC. I paid $270 shipped for mine. It has an amazing price to performance ratio.
 Thanks so much Frank. Sounds like a very worthwhile upgrade to at least try. I have to get mine done now!
Hey Frank, can we get more details on the changes in sound? I'm really interested in getting mine done also.
I highly doubt the 560 will have the same quality as the HE-6. That would be something though if it does.
