NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!! - Page 33

post #481 of 4233

I think I might try to find a SE Impedance adapter, and try the Vali with my w1000x... any one know where I can find one? I considered the idea before as it doesn't seem impossible but until another head fi'r mentioned it I didn't consider pursueing it

I've bought a few 6.3 to 3.5mm impedence adapters from this ebay seller:

 

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=281188408675

 

They ship out pretty quickly and the adapters are of good quality, the only thing is that I don't believe they make a 6.3 -> 6.3 adapter, so you might have to use yet another adapter.  Might as well ask them if they can do 6.3 -> 6.3... I'd be interested as well, since stacks of adapter can get a bit unwieldy. 

 

These are also nice but cost almost double.  The seller offers more impedance choices and the quality is slightly better:

My Magni drives them just fine, perhaps the Vali would too.

I think you can definitely consider them basshead cans.  While the bass is only about 5dB above the midrange (On the higher impedances), they lend themselves to some great bass performance.  The sound, bass, midrange, and treble, is all-consuming within those spacious but closed cups.  I actually really miss them now :'( I'd love to hear them off of the Vali

Sorry, my bad.

seeing as the mk8 was degisned to drive things like the K1000 and ortho's... I think I will end up getting the Vali and a adapter, I have a small extenision I use with my 3.5mm to 6.5mm adapter.

Whoa Purrin.. are you saying that the Vali from an amp perceptive is better than the WA7 amp?  I'm already sold on trying the Vali (from your comments and others) and will set it up with the WA7 DAC and compare the two.  Will also try it with the DragonFly which should be its end state for a second setup.  Should be interesting. Comments on Vali versus WA7 amp? Would like to hear your impressions.

Maybe Soloist, but different sound. HA160, nope. WA3, nope. WA6 (non-SE), nope. WA7, certainly not.

Did we ever get a firm (or maybe not so firm) date from the Schiit guys? I've got some spare cash and it's burning a whole in my pocket. :P

This.

Me too.. just sold a cable, enough in my PayPal account to cover off the Vali.. I think Jason said 2-3 weeks. I'm ready whenever Schiit is... :popcorn:

Do they have anything up on their website about this amp yet?

Seriously?
Because google can't get you to their site, or your ISP exclusively allows access only to head-fi?
Go. Look.

I re-load the Schiit site daily.

More like hourly for me :)

 

Anyway, didn't someone get a call from their credit card company for charging their card to *Schiit* Audio or something? Some corporate systems might go over-board and block it or something.

Just bought a Magni/Modi stack last week (need to pick them up) for my (also recently purchased) Beyerdynamic DT880s (600ohm), and now this comes along...

Vali was on my radar until I heard the K712. I might save up for that instead.

 

I hope nobody says the K712 or Q701 is great with the Vali or i'm in trouble..

I believe purrin did. Sorry.

It seems no-one has. Weird.
