Moriez, you aren't used to Tubes? They tend to be much warmer than SS amps. Knowing the AKG's were quite Accurate to the point of being clinical is precisely WHY I opted for the Vali instead of the Magni. As I had expected the extra fidelity of the tube driven circuit rounds out the AKG's nicely, although it would be nice to have the extra wattage of the Magni with the 702's.
From my understanding the Magni is quite neutral in coloring, maybe you should opt for it.
