“ REVIEW – Schiit Audio Valhalla Tube Headphone Amplifier What Sort of Schiit is This? I read, as did many of you, the head-fi threads about the very popular and attractively priced Schiit Asgard. But to be quite candid, I personally had about as much interest in an inexpensive solid-state headphone amp as I did in weeding behind my garage. As such, I have never heard the...” --Skylab
“ In my opinion which admittedly isn't the best one because I don't have much amp experience. But I would call the Asgard an extremely good buy at $250. The fit and finish of this amp is very good and is built for the long haul. Hefty little thing that pumps out plenty of power. My k601's could pair better but this amp is doing them justice for what I am willing to spend. My ATH M50's...” --mmayer167
“ This review was done at the request of fellow newbie Head-Fier Chgm. Finally, after a long burn-in period and long listening sessions with both amps, I'm ready to give my impressions. This is specifically to test out the Schiit Lyr and the Alo Pan Am with the LCD 2 Rev.2. and songs that CHGM specifically requested (plus a few of my own additions as well). ...” --NZheadcase
“ I'm going to keep this review brief and to the point. This amp is freakin' awesome for $250 and it has a high/low gain meaning it's capable with almost any type of headphone you can throw at it besides orthos. I use it with my DT880s and they sound way more fun and not boring like they used to. So ya, just buy this amp. There is no transformer hum and the noise floor is very low. So disregard...” --wahsmoh
“This review is based on matching the Mini X with Hifiman He-500 Headphones. You may be reading this review, unsure what to make of this Amp, asking how can a cheap sub $200 amp offer the power needed for an expensive Headphone such as the Hifiman He-500? If you have done your homework you will find this is the stereo amp everybody is...” --fluidz
“ Surprised not to see a review on the Magni already. Currently own the Magni, and it represents a very good value in my view - IF you like a brighter signature. Powered a pair of LCD-2s well for me - tightened bass and brought mids forward when compared to underamping via E07K or other solutions I had at the time. That said, I don't use it very much because I...” --DrikTheTroll
“Sounds great with the modded AKG Q701. Nearly as good with that as my main amp that originally cost $350. Impressive! In fact, the Vali added nothing to the sound of the modded Q701, which is perfect. I would say the resulting sound is similar to that of the O2 but with very very slightly fuller mids and very slightly smoother treble. We're talking maybe a 2% difference. The Vali sounds dead...” --tdockweiler
