Maybe if you only planned on using it for very specific headphones.

 

The Vali doesn't really add any warmth. I don't consider the Vali a particularly warm sounding amp (the Lyr is warm sounding tho.) Well maybe the Vali is a teeny teeny bit warm. But only after the filaments are white hot and electrons are melting off of it. What the Vali does add is "wetness". That is one major essence of toobs. That is what tooby is. This is what you are experiencing for the first time. Hearing wetness. Something that is warm, yet is not warm, but is actually wet. Tooby does not necessarily mean slow or syrupy or lush or bloomy. Although too much wetness coincides or results with these characteristics.

 

You are making great progress, but you have much to learn and experience padawan.

^ Man this is the 1st tyme i have seen the term "wet" used to describe audio qualities. LoL

 

Hope it's not wet like heart break.....

 

But like this........

... splashy splashy!!!

 

Oh and why of course......

Sounds more like peeing yourself in a dark suit. Nobody notices but it gives you a warm feeling of relief.

 

Someday we will actually get a reviewer who can write and has technical intellect and a decent background in music.

 

Untill then. IF YOU ARE ACTUALLY LISTENING TO THE EQUIPMENT RATHER THAN THE MUSIC........

 

YOUR ARE DOING IT WRONG

 

and kindly leave your bladder out of the review

 


Just auditioned the Vali and was left breathless.

I haven't heard the "tizzy" sound Tyll mentioned. That said, the K812 is not a forgiving headphone. I won't comment about how resolving I feel it is vis-à-vis the HD 800, as I don't have that with me now (but will soon). That said, the K812 is, to my ears, capable of very high resolution.

 

Hi Jude. Just to clarify: I find them a "bit" tizzy. Sounds to me something like there's always a triangle (the instrument) in the treble. I find it modestly fatiguing. I will also say though the I find the overall balance of the K812 better than the HD800, which to me lacks a little warmth in the bass. 

 

The three-pin cable connector indicates to me that AKG doesn't get, or isn't trying to impress this market yet. 

 

I still think it's a good effort on their part, lots of things like the aluminum build and novel earpads to admire, and I think these are markedly better sounding than the T1. But I think in the rush to the top (read: building $1000+ headphones) sonic performance in the market is not yet on par with the build quality these companies are putting into the product. I'd lump the HD800 into that category as well; seems like everyone agrees that they're a problematic headphone. Seems to me that the Audeze LCD-X is probably the closest to delivering a high price/performance ratio, but even there I feel we're well onto the steep diminishing returns curve.

 

In my estimation we're still in the infancy of ultra-high-end ($1000+) headphones, and it will be another 5 years before we really start seeing the performance of these cans strongly better than sub-$1000 headphones. 

 

In other words: Price still doesn't reflect acoustic performance on the whole, and the K812, T1, HD800, LCD-X, and others have plenty of room for improvement.
