I'm in about legs. plugging in headphone just impacts whole the device so hard that tube filament gets noisy and all (or most) of the vibration passes through the tube pins. if it was not about legs, the noise would appear in an intentional hand shaking the amp just like when you shake matchbox. I think Schiit could solve this issue by doing these three simple changes:

1- these pencil-sized mini tubes benefit too much of elastic rubber rings. I would add two or three rings which IMO decreases the microphonics at least 30-40%

2- tubes would do alot better if pins were soldered using very flexible multi-strand thin wires not that stiff and hard single conductor pins

3- they could contrive tubes on a very gentle metal springs based on the PCB as tubes could easily move within a range so they were in a suspension position most of the time

 

I think these mods will cancel the noise at least 80% and maybe more, one should get the show on the road

The tubes will still ring due to vibrations in the air, like when I speak gentle words of love to the Vali 😜

Yes. Both of them. Which begs the questions - if a Vali is switched on in the woods and there's no one there to hear, do the tubed ring?

 

Btw, I'm ordering one and will use the headphone plug/unplug ringing to practice my awesome ninja skills.

 

Don't be silly. Everyone knows nothing exists unless someone is there to observe it and report it on a discussion board.

However, if a bear schiits in the woods does it make a difference if nobody hears it if they're in the valley?

why do people think Schiit hasn't tried all this basic stuff already? They are pretty good at this stuff...

I contacted Electromod to get a pricequote with shipping (from the uk to germany) and it ended up to be 170€ total or 230US$. Crazy...

Audio design engineers also classifiy as "people", :D that's why most "people" modify audio gears even an Audio Note. everywhere is laden with people. people and more people. what a maze!

IF A VALI RINGS IN THE WOODS.. AND NO ONE'S AROUND TO HEAR IT.. DOES IT MAKE A SOUND?

 

 

 

 

 

...

 

 

 

 

Seriously, folks.. it rings (less for some.. more for others).. we know..

Just got my Vali and this little Schiit is nice. Initial impression (1hr) that it already sounds a little better than my M-Stage.

Also, no ringing (production 914)
