-Would the ringing sound affect my speakers as well?
-Should I just connect my speakers through the line out from my DAC as per usual instead of RCA from the Vali to avoid the ringing?
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.
