Question for Vali owners:
Is the Vali better than the Magni and the O2 amp? I know I am comparing with solid state amps but this is for the DT 990 and maybe future HE-400 or HD 650. Is the microphonic as bad as the website says and a big deal? Like will I hear it when I talk or move my head? Or will I only hear a ring when I turn on the amp to warm up and plugging in the headphones only?
I was thinking to get this amp for the DT990 pro as well, lots of people have said it pairs well with it but they don't really describe why. Is it because using the Vali brings out more of the mids as it sounds a bit warmer?
As for the Magni/O2, I think they are more versatile than these.
Would appreciate feedback from those who have used it with DT990's
Found this on their website:
“One could hear the air surrounding the instruments and singers more clearly with the Tranquility Base”
“Bass was also enhanced with the Tranquility Base. It seemed to be more powerful, dynamic, and better controlled”
“The Tranquility Base performed its magic without hardening or brightening the sound”
Synergistic Research Tranquility BASE conditioning a wireless router
“One other quality of the Tranquility Base is its acoustic isolation properties… the Base is actually two products combined”
Such a gimmick!
PFF that's no gimmick man! That's the sound of $995 of pure grade Expectional Bias xD
:[ sad;y guys something's come up and I need to sell my Vali! So there's one in the FS for the time being!
I will say this though, I like the Vali... a lot! So much I might buy it again ... in the next month or so kind of again!
I have Vali (serial number 761 or so) two days so only basic listening experience (Nina Simone, Diana Krall, Return To Forever blu-ray, Led Zeppelin Presence CD, Jeff Beck Performing Live at Ronnie blu-ray). Paired with Denon d2000 (modded, recabled). Plugged mogami (with neutrik plugs) 3m extension cable, switched ON, wait few minutes for working temperature.
Dear prsut, could you please say something about the (possibly high) noise floor when pairing the Vali with the Denon headphones? There were very few comments about this in the thread, some positive and others negative...
