BREAKING HEADPHONE NEWS!
Schiit tube constipation!

My money is burning a hole in my hand. I have high hopes that the HE-300s are going to synergize well with the Vali.

Yes. I think pretty much every product on the Schiit webpage shows a pic of its circuit board. A circuit begins with a schematic, which represents the electrical design of a circuit. That circuit is then transformed into "circuit traces" on one or both sides of a circuit board. That board is the physical medium that holds the components of the device. It provides a way to hold the parts together, as well as connect them electrically. It also contains mounting points, which will hold the board within a case.

 

Once the boards are produced, the electrical components (integrated circuits, capacitors, resistors, etc) are "stuffed" onto each board, after which the components are soldered onto the board (either on something called a "wave solder machine", or manually). The finished product is then mounted into a case, which isolates the components physically and electrically from the user, and provides whatever physical interfaces are needed (volume control, USB cable, power switch, etc).

 

Specialization is the key to productivity in a Capitalist society.

Hi everyone,

 

I have a little dot dac_II paired with a little dot MKIII feeding my DH650. Has anyone had a chance to compare the Vali with the MKIII? I'm wondering if it would be a sidesways move?

I'd like to believe that was funny. But I can't. It came across as lame.

Sir,

 

You joined Head-fi almost 4 years ago, and this was your first post? Congratulations! It is rare to find someone with such ability at delayed gratification.

 

Not many people have heard a Vali yet. Most people are going sideways just waiting for this thing to be released. I'm betting most comparisons are TBD. In the meantime, enjoy something that has been released:

You've never heard of Pentatonix? Wow. Well, now you have. Mitch sings falsetto, which means he sings above the breaking point of his voice. These guys won season 3 of a show called Sing Off, which is kind of like America's Got Talent, except just for singing groups. They are flat out amazing. No instruments involved, just voices. I think they're amazing.

LOL - Thanks for the responses and the welcome back :)

 

I've deliberately kept my head low on this forum for fear of being seduced into more purchases - this latest Schiit has me tempted. Guess I'll wait and try to hold out for some reviews before any potential purchase.

 

Thanks

Pentatonix was great in the sing off hadn't seen then for a while. Good to hear them again - so talented.

No problem, each to their own, but in the end we are both amateur comedians.

I have the same amp and am wondering the same thing. Vali will be more powerful, but that's all we really know for now. Though, I'm not opposed to a sideways move as I could sell my MKIII for a fair price and still have something left over if I end up preferring the Vali.
