A bit too expensive for my taste (£119.00) which turns out to be around 150€ with shipping. We need more shiit dealers over here :D

I'm on the same boat.

 

But ordered directly from Schiit. I just want to be sure I will have latest production unit ("ringers" tested, tube legs properly bent... as Jason stated ). It will cost me at about 150E including customs/VAT to Slovakia. Will be derivered by FedEx (tracking and insurrance included) as of 15th january...

You're right! Retails at $119. So £119 is steep. But maybe its the same for you, there is a lot less choice in the UK of AMPS, and with my small budget, shipping charges etc just aren't worth it for me!

I just took the cheapest shipping, who cares about tracking and insurance for such cheap item. Total little under 140€ (24%!! vat, credit card fees etc all included). Took a week to get here with simple post customs (Fedex much slower here to deal with).

Hey, everyone. I have a question. I'm using this amp on my gaming desktop paired with a Q701 headphone. The sound is being processed by an X-FI Titanium HD sound card. The card has a L output, R output (the red and white wires), and a headphone output. Should I be using the L/R jacks to the vali's L/R jacks or should I be using the headphone jack to the vali's L/R jack? I have both wires available.

i would use the red and white rca jacks off the ti HD. note that once you plug in the headphone jack it disables the rca outputs.

Thank you for your help! When I used the headphone jack straight to my Q701 (before I had the vali), I had my windows sound settings set as 5.1 surround and I was able to hear things in surround. But now, with just the RCA out, I can only set my sound to stereo because with the 5.1 I can only hear the L/R sound.

How much background hissing/noise is acceptable? 

It depends on the type of headphones and their impedance and efficiency. My Philips X1 has no audible hiss with the Vali, even if I crank the volume up all the way. My SOL Master Tracks have a faint but audible hiss at all volume levels. My Grado SR60s have a barely noticeable hiss. So the noise floor (or hiss) just depends on the type of headphones and its completely normal.

Left the party and now coming back, does anyone have the link or page where there's a description on the difference of the new Vali? And how they solved the microphonics?

post #2820 of 4063

I would tell you to use the "Search This Thread" feature in the forums, as it is incredibly useful, BUT!!! Since every page in this thread is about micro-phonics, you're SOL... btw, there is no solving micro-phonics, its a feature on the Vali ;)
