I spent the morning listening to that combination. I was processing photos, so I wasn't really listening critically, but I never felt it was particularly lacking. That said, the LCD's will scale with a better amp as well.

Pick a time and come by the studio in the next week or so and you can listen for yourself.

Sounds good, the Vali would mostly be a stepping stone for a more appropriate amp.

 

Also, PM'd.

I know it's been stated that this amp won't be quite suitable for sensitive IEMs, but has anyone tried it with Etymotic ER-4S? If so, any feedback on the combination would be very welcomed. Thanks.

I can say from my perspective, and many others on the forum agree, the stock Fostex is pretty disappointing. Given that you sold your Mad Dogs, I doubt you would find much to like in the stock version unless you plan on modding them. That being said, very few modders achieve the results Dan has with the MD, but it is a lot of fun to do, good luck. BTW Purrin said the Paradox(modded T50) and Vali were "sublime"

WEll I won't b hearing the STock T50RP. It's going to be here today. My Buyer wants them to stay Sealed in box. Pretty sure he's going to mod them him self

It's un released atm so you might have to wait a little for impressions

@Mshenay Thanks! haha...I assumed after 46 pages that they were already released and there were impressions...

Still waiting for these. Its killing me :( I have been looking to invest in tube amp for a long time now and I can't wait any longer! Any word on when it will be available in their UK supplier?

What specs are you looking for? Some have been announced.

The maximum Power in different Ohms would be great.

The power spec they released was 650mW into 32 Ohms.

Has anyone had the chance to compare the Vali to the Woo Audio WA6 (perhaps with the Sofia Princess Rectifier)?

A simple Ohm's Law calc - says 143ma current at that combination.  I'm not sure if that's all in Class A.  If it is, it's high, but not outside of the scope of many headphone amps.

Pfft, bit of a class difference there.

Aaargh - I had car troubles over the weekend and had to sink a bunch of money into repairs (and new tires) so several purchases I had planned on this week or next (including the Vali ) are on hold for several weeks. :(

"The Vali is what most solid-state amps wish they can be in terms of clarity, resolution, microdynamics, but with a twist of having a touch of inner warmth and non-edgy, but very present treble. Think EC, DNA Stratus, Woo WA5, etc."

 

Purrin....on page 7 of this thread.....for what it's worth (the WA5 is a $3500 amp).
