NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!! - Page 220

post #3286 of 4963
The VALI SHOWED UP T0day. It's my favorite hp amp. Ive only used a Belari ha-540 and dragonfly so not much to compare it to. I've never heard my q-701's sing like this.

The vali is being run with MacBook & pure music > vlink 192 > gungnir. This whole headphone thing is finally starting to make sense.

did anyone try HE-300 with Vali?

did anyone try akg k550 with vali?

as far as the above concern I am finding that the vali is more revealing of the source you have it plugged into. It only smooths it out slightly and boosts it and opens it up a bit. 

 

it plays it safe and will match well with the above.

All day, everyday. Sounds great, I can't use them without an amp now. They sound lifeless.

Hello guys, listening to the Vali/Modi combo for some time already, could not believe it made the dt1350 sound fantastic.

 

I just got a question to people who experienced tube erection problems. After reading here, I just did what most people here did, pushed them back to the board. Unfortunately for me, the adhesive pads just don't like to stick on the board and the tubes will rise again. Well, sound is the same great sound, except for the increased sensitivity of the microphonics... I have to listen to it in a very still manner to avoid it ringing. :)

 

Oh and is it normal for it to get pretty hot?

I was one of the first purchasers of the Vali, and I haven't had any issues with it until tonight. Couldn't figure out why after 3 minutes of listening I still got ringing and then it clicked. Sure enough, tube erection problem here as well. Was an easy fix for me. 

 

Oddly enough with the Vali, after I ordered and and started using it, I didn't post much in this thread. It just worked, was very easy, and sounds really incredible. Feel like there just isn't much to discuss :D

I think now those with unwelcome erections carefully bend the tube leads so the tubes will lay flatter and not put as much stress on the adhesive, I believe this is standard in the plant now.

Mine gets more than warm. My Asgard 2, now that gets hot,

Yours doesn't get so hot that you can't touch it. Right?

I can still touch it, but its uncomfortably hot, not burning hot though... Aside from the erections, I like this amp... Will look for a way to lessen the ringing...

What's the serial number on the back of your unit? It's on the sticker next to the power switch.

It says 000671, so I guess its already the production unit?

So it's not one of the early units. That means the leads of the tubes should be bent near the board so that there shouldn't be any spring force that pulls the tubes way from the board. You might want to email Schitt and see if they can help you.

I keep getting messages about pills to help me keep it up ... where's the anti-Ciallis to help with the Vali ?  I want increased sensitivity with flaccidity.
