My knee hurts.

Bill, how many surgeries? This is the big one, after 8 surgeries on my right knee (1 on my left, and a total hip due to avascuar necrosis) since my football days, I am getting a new one! Tuco1965, bad knees and various orthopedic injuries allow for extra quality listening time ;-)!

Now back to the thread, after trading communication with Nick at Schiit, I decided to bite the bullet and go with the Valhalla. Too many great reviews with the HD650's and my "wish list" HD800's (one can dream!). Lots of info on this thread, though any fresh perspectives on pairing with Senn's and tube rolling will be appreciated!

Mine was a total knee replacement. 2 months out, I'm glad I did it. Doing PT everyday, helps progress and results a lot.
Valhalla + Senns are a great Rx.

Total knee to compliment my total hip from last summer. Now if I can figure out a way to get my health insurance to cover my Schiit habit, lol!

Tell the insurance company you use your audiophile grade equipment help you recover from your surgery...the totality of the music help you cope with the pain. I hope you heal fast and be the music.

Will do, reddog! In the meantime I am the Grateful Dead, Ryan Adams, Bruckner, Miles and Art Blakey, becoming one with the music, Valhalla's tubes and HD650's!

IMO take your time getting used to the stockers. Schiit really voiced Valhalla nicely to the 6n1p, it's in no sense a "soft & round" tube amp. It's detailed, fast, and lively, with great texture. Since I have had tube speaker amps for years, I've got lots of NOS 6dj8/6922s around, but I always end up back with the Russkie 6n1p tubes in Valhalla. My favs now are some 1960s I got from Mr Tom and 1976 EVs from Cryoset.

Check out the Valhalla tube rolling thread, it's short & has some great info

Thanks, I also have some tubes in-house, but I will do some long and serious listening before I play my Schiit's tubes.

Also, I ordered my unit at 4:00 PM CST today and just received an email saying my unit had shipped and will be here Saturday!!! Nick and Laura at Schiit are awesome! Incredible customer service.

Damn the audiophile gods for there not being a black Schiit Bifrost on their website. They tease me with the black Valhalla but I'm too ocd to have one silver and one black.

I'm so full of Schiit now, yay!!

For now I can just say there's much more life in it, than in V-DAC. Brought the fun back...
