Careful on the L-PAD.

Like anything you have to do it right. If the attenuation is too much and the sensitivity too low when maintaining proper impedances then an L-PAD may not be a viable solution. Maybe a different amp or cans :D

If you get the impedances wrong, that's a boo boo.

There is still a small element of trial and error to fiddling with this to get the loudness right to the individual's taste. Call it lab work.

Yeah, 600s are fantastic on the Vali. So good!

Can't wait for the Bay Area headfi meet to try the Vali out!

Yes, looking forward to the meet!

If the Schiit tables are too crowded, come by my table (@darinf). I will have the Vali setup with some HD800's. I have a attenuating adapter and some Noble IEMs if you want to see how that works on the Vali too.

Trying a better front end out with the vali. It scales up pretty darn well.

Was previously using a ibasso dx50 with the vali. Now I'm trying a Schiit bifrost uber. Meant I was using a different DAC.

So , the combo Bifrost + Vali have a good synergy with the TH600 , What do you think about the cheaper Modi ? Thanks .

Modi = $100

Fully optioned Bifrost = $520

The Bifrost is better but not 5X as much.

Do you really need better than 24bit/96kHz? Probably not. I doubt that we can really hear any difference above that.

Can you spend the difference?

Ponder that in your own context.

That said, I have a fully decked out Bifrost arriving tomorrow. If it was a Modi, I'd be able to work with it only I must have the better I/O options that the Bifrost has, i.e., un-powered USB and SPDIF.

OK , i think that the Modi is a better option for me .Especially for its price . thanks

The bifrost unupgraded is still a pretty good dac and fits well in its price range.
