Would using RCA splitters have an effect on the DAC o/p?

I've had email conversations with Jason on this a while ago for the Bifrost>Asgard>Lyr stack. He recommended RCA splitters and said there shouldn't be audible differences, if any. Done a lot of testing at that time and indeed I observed no sound degradation (from my perspective at least). I imagine it should be the same for the Mini Trinity stack.

Admittedly, I never ran the Lyr and Asgard at the same time. I did test SQ with and without splitters, and the sound was fine with the splitter I used.

Those are the ones I used with the Bifrost.. one line to the Lyr and the other to speakers.  They're quite nice. No degradation that I heard.

Had a quick listen to the Vali this afternoon. Not bad, definitely not as clean sounding as the EF-6 or Soloist that were also on hand. Microphonics were noticeable when plugging headphones in. I think I'll need to pick one up for an extended listen as the time spent with it was very brief.

Damn, they aren't as clean as the device costing 10x as much or more. What a rip off.

I'm torn between getting the Vali or the Magni. My Beyer DT 880/250 Pro just arrived yesterday. Out of the box, it's a bit bright, but still ok for my ears (I like treble). I've read that the Magni is brighter, while the Vali produces slower bass. I listen to a lot of symphonic metal (metal + orchestra), so I want the phone to be fast, with good bass & instrument separation. I lean a bit towards the Magni, but the DT 880 is already bright so I don't know if I can stand it with a bright amp. My total budget for both amp+dac is $200. I'm also considering the O2 and E17, but all you schiit-heads have made the Magni/Vali/Modi stack very appealing to me :D. Can I have suggestions which one I should get? I appreciate all the help.

The benifits are in my opionin, a bright and fast paced headphone with a warm amp usually producesa  good balance. The DT 880 is already very bright detailed and has nice speed, the warm of the tube won't take that away, just tone down the treble and add some warmth to the bass. 

 

On the oppisite side  a very warm and slower headphone benifits from the brightness and tight nature of a Solid state.

Unfortunately the Vali isn't really "out in the field" so to speak for testing. If you aren't in a huge rush, I'd wait another 2 weeks or so. By that time a good number of people will have both, and maybe even a few will have the DT880 and a Vali. With that information you'll be in a better place to decide. 

 

A little OT, but I don't think I've really heard anyone describe the DT880 as "bright". What are you plugging them into?
