Thanks! I'll go looking for some cables once I get my Schiit.

If you would kindly read my post again, I wanted to know the rough dimensions of the Vali box and not the Vali.

 

And a product size cannot act as a basis of the approximation of the box size, in my humble opinion. That is why I asked the question.

 

fedex says 8x6x5

Thank you jbarrentine, much appreciated.

 

Schiit hasn't replied yet so hearing from you is much appreciated.

The spec's list show that this has a 5x gain. I'm worried about this being unbearably loud since I have to run my computer's volume at about 10%. I would be using AKG K712 Pro's and Philips Fidelio X1's.

 

In noticed that the Asgard 2 has 1.5x or 6x gain. So, if the 5x--or 6x from the Magni--is too much then I might have to go with the A2.

They are in the UK already :) probably will take ages to get to the Lake district!

The actual dimensions of the shipping box are 8 3/4" x 5 3/4" x 5 1/2".

 

A lot of things are very similar to Magni (other than the tube vs transistor aspect and the sound), shipping box, jacks, size, etc.

 

It can be ordered now from the schiit.com web site, although it can take up to a week or more to get shipping at this point, due to holidays, and previous orders.

 

By the way, the Vali gets quite warm (I reserve the word "hot" for components that could actually cause discomfort if you put your hand on it, and it is not quite that hot).

 

I'm currently doing the burn-in that Jason suggested, my first impressions start at:

No photos yet of shipped units? I'm waiting on the edge of my seat, even though it looks exactly like the Magni.

First post confirming that Vali is a good match w/ HD650 :)

That's good news as I shall be using my HD650's with the Vali. Mine is in the mail to me in Oz. I recently got the Modi/Magni combo and am quite impressed so the Vali mated to my Rotel dac should sound lovely in my office. My m&m combo is my travel/work rig.
Cheers.

Being better than a soundcard amp is kind of a low bar... but it is good to hear that it works with HD650 without issues...

yeah :)  Its so much fun for the money I've been listening to it all day lo

its fun very musical engaging,  Its not as powerful as my audiolab amp for bass loudness that thing can make my sennheisers bang! ....but it sounds better!

I use the ZrX to EQ the sound I love bass!!!  boost the bass MAN!

I might buy the hifiman he400 tomorrow I see them at 299

I'm loving this amp :)
