Dutch Meet - Page 8
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
It uses a 6 volt 4LR44 battery. I guess I need to do some Amazon or ebay searches. I just can't find it at my local electronics shop. They're cheaper there.
^ I really like the Valhalla. The Asgard is very good too. Perhaps it is just the fact that the Valhalla uses tubes. But to my ear they are very close in sound. Schiit don't recommend tube rolling. The Valhalla is not the warmest of tube amps. It is closer to the ss sound than tube warmth. Good luck on your Dutch meet. I wish I were there. I'll attend vicariously through Ultrainferno's audio aura and excellent ear for sound. :)
I wouldn't say an upgrade but more of a lateral shift in sound. I like the Asgard for some hard-hitting energized music and the Valhalla for acoustical and unplugged music. They both handle either well but one is better for the other (huh?). Anyway, it boils down to personal taste in sound and music, of course. So if you can, you must audition one or both at your meet.
EDIT: That's why I still own the both of them.
