Not to burst your bubble, but purchasing directly from Monoprice tends to be cheaper even if you pay for shipping. I placed an order this morning from them for a total of $15.83. The same monoprice products on Amazon gave me a total of $24.93 with Prime. Of course it will all depend on what the items being purchased are so it is always good to check, but you will notice right away that the Amazon price per item is higher.

Huh, never checked that before. Good to know, thanks.

Letting everything burn in, though the Valhalla and Modi sound fantastic right out of the box, then evaluative listening! Taking musical request ✌️.

Hope the surgery went well. You're posting on head fi and setting up your Valhalla, so it must have. Enjoy your Schiit, and your post surgical stool softeners too.

Good info, nice DR, thanks!

Second day with my Valhalla, Modi - Tragedy in Tennessee, a bad tube on the Valhalla! Started with bit of tube rush in the left speaker, volume dropped, called it a night, switched tube positions, now right side. Still impressed with the Guys at Schiit, Nick responded to my email this morning (Sunday)! It will be fixed ASAP, more to come.

Hopefully you'll be fixed back up and listening to tunes soon.

Thanks Tuco, the Folks at Schiit will have me operational soon, though I am having a bit of buyers remorse, should I have gone for the Lyr instead, more power and versatility, just wondering?

What sort of Headphones will you be driving with it?

post #5325 of 6757
Right now, HD650's so a good synergy, I suppose once the tube issue is resolved. Though I am interested in picking up something from Audeze or Hifiman in the near future, or maybe an HD800, maybe coveting to much power, I will know if the Valhalla cranks when the tube problem is resolved.
