BTW, this thing gets pretty warm after a while. Would it be a good idea to try to find some cooling solution? Has anybody done something like that? 

Warm? If you want to heat your home, get an Asgard 2. I wouldn't worry about, it's not hot, just warm.

That's how it's designed. running warm means it's working right.

I wouldn't worry, their Schit don't stink. The tubes in the Vali are inexpensive.

Yes Magni + Modi can be bright depending upon your computer USB port. Wyrd+Modi+Vali is fantastic and not bright at all. Both Wyrd and Vali help with smoother and laid back treble.

I don't see how the Wryd should affect the FR or SQ other than putting some control over noise or glitches.

The below is what Schiit says about the Wyrd, their own product.

 

Sonic benefits? That’s a lot of hoo-ha!
You’re right. There’s no reason this should make any system sound better. Although we can measure the difference in USB power supply noise, it really shouldn’t matter. Despite this, some listeners have said that there are sonic benefits from using Wyrd. Us, we remain Swiss on the matter—we don’t do the hard sell by promising sonic nirvana.

Hey!

I just ordered my first pair of nice headphones and an amp. I went with Sennheiser HD 558s and a Schiit Vali. I plan on picking up a Schiit Modi near the end of the month.

I keep going back and forth about picking up the Magni instead of the Vali. I've never had an amp before so I have no experience. I really appreciate large sound stages and I listen to a wide variety of music but I hate overpowering bass. I do see myself upgrading in the future and I know I will get some closed headphones for school/smash tournaments (although this will be on my phone primarily so the amp will probably not be used with the closed headphones). The small hum at the start doesn't concern me much unless I can hear it after a minute or so but I am worried about the tubes decaying, the amps clarity (I love videogames), and how it will fair with further headphone upgrades.

Any advice / thoughts would be much appreciated

Neither do I. And as you just pointed out, neither does Jason.

What happens when the tubes die?

Send it to Schiit and they replace them.

Is it possible to swap manualy?
post #4137 of 4373

yes just desolder old tube and re solder new one. Might be a while before you need to though!

Can someone say if the Schiit Vali is a good match for the Beyer T1? I know its supposed to be great with HD800 and the T1/HD800 do similar in many ways so im hoping that the Vali/T1 would be a good pairing. 

 

I'm asking on behalf of a friend who will be using the Modi as a DAC. 

 

 

I know there are a  lot of good amps out there for T1 (i own the WA2) but my friend is just looking for a good amp to start off with and hopefully the Vali will be up to the task.

It's excellent with my T90.
