Also since the ringing issue seems to be getting a lot of discussion, I wanted to say mine does not seem to have this issue at all, but it was a well documented thing that the Schiit boys were completely up front about, so everyone should be aware of it. I was prepared to experience it but didn't think it would be a real issue - but thankfully I have been fortunate that I am not experiencing it at all.
Nice, I'm glad to hear someone isn't experiencing "the micro-phonic ring of death!" LOL.
Joking aside, I realize the ringing is not that big of a deal and I'm sure the majority of everyone else does too even though the subject has received ALOT of attention. My guess is because micro-phonics is a relatively rare phenomenon for amplifiers? I don't know too much about tubes and amplifiers as I'm just starting my foray into this realm of headphone HI-FI.
I will say I can't wait to try the Vali + Modi when they arrive next week!
