Damn!  How'd you get that?  Is Schiit still sending out pre-production units, and if so, how do I sign up?

I do all of Schiit's photography AND I'm hosting a head-Fi meet at my studio tomorrow. Jason hooked me up.

Having heard the Vali at RMAF, all I want to know if Jason or other Schiitsters are at your meet tomorrow:

WHEN does the Vali order page go live on their web site?

 

I'll worry about a ship date afterwards.

Initially I thought the HE-500 may have sounded a bit soft with the Vali, but I now take that back after comparing with the Mjolnir. The HE-500 is excellent from the Vali. It was initially hard for me to compare because the HE-500's cups snapped from the headband in a catastrophic failure; and I had to create a makeshift headband from packing tape (it didn't really work well). I've since been able to transplant the HE-500 cups onto my HE-400 headband and do a more proper evaluation of the HE-500 with the Vali.

you are killing me with these raves!

with my HE-500 (and soon jerg mod pads) and HD600, do you really expect me/us to buy 2 Vali each? (home and work)

:gs1000smile:

reloading the Schiit order page now just in case November comes early....

or just send me your Vali.  Obviously you are almost finished evaluating it..... ha!

Vali + LCD-X = End Game?

 

that thought just occured me... if both these hyped products live up to their standards...

Is the Vali good match with AKG K240's? 55ohm ver

Wait, you do? That's a cool gig!

 

Only an hour and a half to Schiiti goodness!

Purrin will have his Vali for demo at the San Diego meet next weekend, 11/2:

I think LFF might be bringing a Vali too.

 

At the meet you will be able to compare it with the Cavalli LAu too. Then you can hear for yourself how a $119 amp sounds next to a $6495 amp. :D

Not to throw too big a wrench into the works, but I have to wonder how many Magni's they are going to sell once this becomes available. I am thinking not very darn many.

With it's higher output impedance I'm thinking a lot of people will be cautious using it with sensitive headphones and in-ears so I can see a market for the Magni (if you are referring to the low priced amp). Some people also insist on pure solid state no matter what.

I would be more concerned about selling the much pricier but not necessarily better options.

I'm suprised no one mentioned this but any impressions with the LCD-3s??

What he said. The Magni fills the market for low-impedance, high-sensitivity cans while the Vali fills the market for mid-impedance, low-sensitivity cans. Schiit's higher offerings cover everything else as well as improving on the Magni and Vali.

 

Of course, this is just informed speculation. I don't have a direct line to Schiit or anything like that.

I hope some one tries a pair of DT880 premium 600 on them at the meet and come back here and talk about it.

What does this say about the future of Schiit hybrid amplifier?

The one at Ragnarok price level? A bad-ass version of Lyr

for driving difficult speakers? This is exciting news....
