Kindly advise as I've heard it would be better to output the amp (Vali) through line out as opposed to headphone out. If it makes no difference, I might as well use the headphone out to the Vali and use the line out from my DAC to my speakers to avoid the ringing.

If you're talking about the Vali 1, yes the microphonics will be heard through your speakers if you used the headphone output into them. I would not advise that you do this. It is not a proper setup for the speakers. You want a clean ~2 volt signal to be fed into your amp(s).

 

If you're talking about the Vali 2 that is on Schiit's website now, it has preamplifier outs that you should indeed use. The Vali 2 does not use the same weird little tube that the original Vali used and so I don't think it should show microphonics in the same way. That said, it never hurts to warm up your tubes before using them with your system, but I don't think they will harm your speakers.

The Vali 1 never had preamp outs.

I think I have miscalculated quite badly.  Would there be any problems using the Magni 2 Uber in Japan?  I ended up buying it with the US outlet in mind.  From what little research I've done, they appear to share plug standards, and I'll be residing in a part of the country that delivers power at ~100V @ 60hz.  Have I messed up, or should I be fine?

I have used electronics from North America in Japan and vice versa, without any problems. I believe (and I could be totally wrong here) that the supplied wall wart would just convert the voltage to whatever the Magni needs. If you really want to be safe you can get a voltage converter that plugs into the wall.

Just got a magni on the cheap, it's okay a tad splashy in the treble perhaps ? I can see this would be a great amp for headphones that need more treble though.

 

Prefer the old fiio E6 sound on my fidelio x1's not tried the hd 650's on it yet but will do.

 

Happy for the cheapo price i paid at least, p.s no idea why it has an on off switch when the power supply still draws power with the unit switched off ill have to get used to turning the power supply switch off

I've A/B switched it to a number of amps and didn't find the treble to be any different. The FR is flat so how can it possible be splashy?

For what it seems to be worth.  No issues yet.  Hopefully it'll stay that way.
