Hey guys, I'm not sure if this has been touched on or not but I'm going to be ordering some Schiit here VERY soon and I'm still trying to decide on the Valhalla 2 or the Lyr 2. I plan on picking up some Sennheisier HD 650s and some Beyerdynamic DT990 600OHM and I know the website clearly states that the Valhalla is the best way to go for those two headphones but I was just curious if you guys have any input you'd like to give me regarding the different sound between the two. Thank you in advance.

I don't think you will hear much difference between the two, as both were designed as super quiet and accurate amps.  

But looking at the specs alone, Valhalla 2 seems to be more natural fit for high impedance cans like HD650 and DT990.

It's cheaper too.

Awesome, that's the one I was leaning towards the most. Thank you :D

2nd on MW's recommendation, my original Valhalla is an excellent pairing with my 650's.

Sorry guys went to bed as soon as I posted I got the stand from monoprice it's the 22 inch version just big enough to set 2 valhalla size amps with about 2 inches in between but the 27 inch version may be better since you would not have such a sharp bend for the audio cables.

I would also suggest getting some rubber feet like I did to raise it about an inch and keep the built in leg extenders screwed all the way in it feels more stable that way.
post #5577 of 12186
I really need to investigate this stand.
post #5578 of 12186

yeah I need one for sure! Thanks for the info.

Hi guys I am getting Grado RS1i's and was thinking of going schiit for amp/dac and was thinking valhalla 2/bifrost. Would this make a good combination? Thanks

Valhalla would work less than optimal with low impedance cans like these. But it will work fine. I'd rather take Asgard 2 if you don't mind SS or Lyr 2 (if you really want tubes), though.
