NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!! - Page 8

post #106 of 4963

As exciting as the Vali is, I can't wait for Schiit to take the "lessons learned" from developement and give us a Lyr 2. That would be crazy awesome.

The thought of Schiit making revamps of its existing line is very exciting. That iterative strategy would not only benefit us, but also for the company for not risking product dilution.

this would be a good gift to the younger members of my clan...tube without the fuzz. 

( or a bravo amp...?? )

No exposed tubes :'( but hopefully it'll be as easily disassembled as other Schiit gear, and we can roll some tubes :)

The Vali is not tube rollable. Besides what other pencil tubes that you know are better than the one Schiit is using?

I think all of the 6088s were made by Raytheon, but different batches or vintages of tubes could sound different, we never know!. All we would need is to match the electrical characteristics of a pair of 6088s and a soldering iron.

not that this is worth much or could be "set in stone", but I emailed Jason in late Aug before I pulled the trigger on a Lyr.

my basic question was:  "are they any plans for a Lyr2 as I don't want to buy a tube amp now only to have new schiit render mine last generation."

jason answer:

 "Not at the Moment".

pulled the trigger on the Lyr, got some great tubes and I've been set since with my HE-500.

 

Had fun talking with Jason today about the Vali at RMAF.  the Vali is one sweet, small, sublime amp at a nutso price.

Is that a balanced cable coming out of it? It's huge

Nope.  single ended 1/4" jack.  adapter end may have looked large, that was a pair of LCD-2 plugged into the Vali today.

Sorry, I didn't discuss voltage input options.  

it did look like it used the same wall wart with AC transformer as the Magni ?

Step down transformers are widely available in any country and fairly cheap.

Jason said it was the same transformer as the Magni. A step down to (I think) 16 VAC
