NEW Vali Schiit AMP!!! - Page 41

post #601 of 4963

Would the Vali work well with a 32 Ohm, 95 Db sensitivity headphone on paper?  The output impedance seems kind of high, but how noticeable is this in practice?  I feel like this would tame the slightly metallic sound of my SoundMAGIC HP100 driven from the Magni.

It will "work" as in there will be music coming out of the headphones. Whether or not it works "well" is anybody's guess. To all intents and purposes, i think you'll be alright as long as you don't start plugging iem's into the Vali. The headphone impedance rule of thumb (something like x5 to x8) is a more of a guideline. Which makes it a bit a the Pirate's code...

Just sitting here drinking my coffee listening to my Crack/HD600s. Wham! Sucked right on the hype train. Can't wait to try this little Schitt. I'm kind of surprised of the pairing with the Audezes.

On the hype train of the Crack/HD600 or the Vali and ____ ?

I was listening to the Crack/HD when I posted. No hype there. Wondering about Vali and HD

Hard to beat the Crack/HD6x0. No need to blow $120 out of curiosity.

I'm curious as to why this little amp is supposed to be so much better than something in the same price range like the Bravo Ocean.

Does this mean that the crack is also the best under $1600?

Not trying to replace the Crack.  Thought it might be nice to have a smaller bedroom rig.  Money is never blown on Head-Fi………….:cool:

more like - really cool with HD6x0 under $1600!

I didn't like it at all with a lot of headphones I tried it with.

Have you listened to the 336C/HD6x0? Heard it compares well to the Crack.

Yes, for headphones > 600ohms nominal output Z (which usually means Senn 600/650/800 or special Beyer 600 ohm editions), a Crack with Speedball would at or near the top of the list. Keep in mind that the Crack won't work well on orthos or most of the newer dynamics because of its 120ohm output Z; and you've got to build it yourself.
