Hey guys, I wasn't sure if my question was appropriate for an entire topic in the recommendations forum so I thought I would just ask here. I'm currently looking into upgrading my desktop audio setup to a Schiit Magni/Modi stack or Vali/Modi stack. (Current setup is just an ASUS Xonar DGX)
What I'm trying to debate right now is whether I should be getting the Magni or Vali. I've heard a lot of really intriguing stuff about how the Vali sounds, and I am definitely interested, but I was wondering if anyone had an opinion for my more specific use. I currently have a pair of Sennheiser HD595s with my machine, and am looking into possibly upgrading to Hifiman HE-400s in the semi-near future. I am likely also to purchase Sennheiser Momentums for mobile use, though as they would be for mobile use I likely wouldn't use them much with this setup. I though I had read something about how low impedance headphones wouldn't work very well with Vali, so I was wondering if I might run into this issue with the 595s or Momentum if I decided to use that with it for some reason.
Not sure if relevant in this case, but I would be listening to all sorts of music (classical, rock, electronic, jazz, ambiance, jazz-hop), as well as using it to enjoy playing games and watching films.
And if anyone thinks that the Vali would simply be a superior component for what I would be using it for, that would be good to know too :D
