^ Love hearing this. My preferred rig at the moment is my custom AK DAC, Crack/Speedball and the T90. Honestly, I never thought I'd own dynamics again. My LCD2v2, custom HE-5, custom balanced DAC's (9018/CS) with balanced 'Wire' amps generally sit idle these days. What I give up in Otho impact, this chain more then makes up for with incredible lushness, dynamics and staging. I have a Vali inbound so I'm looking forward to hearing the difference vs. Crack myself. When the mood strikes, the Torpedo swaps in nicely. It gives up in some ways vs. the Crack/SB, but there's nothing quite like a parafeed (detail, smoothness).
I suspect Vali will find a place in the rotation.
