vali or magni

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

This is my first post sorry if I sound very nooby or dumb, I just got into this stuff! So basically after a lot of research I decided to order an hd 650 but I'm still not sure about which amp/dac I should buy. I know there's already a hundred threads on this exact topic so I already narrowed my choices down to a few schiit products. So like the title says...

Vali or Magni?

- I hear the 650 sounds nice with tubes so I'm leaning towards the Vali but I am a total noob so should I just go with the Magni so I don't have to deal with tubes?

What would you have to deal with? The Vali's tubes have a long life and they are soldered to the circuitry inside the case so you won't touch them or have to mess with them in any way. I haven't heard either though, so I can't really say which would be better. IMO if you want the Vali but are concerned about dealing with tubes, just forget about that and get the Vali.

Yeah it seems like I'm under the false impression that tubes are inherently more difficult to handle than solid-state amps. Anyways do you think the Vali is worth it over the magni for the 650's?

You could always email Schiit, at least see what they have to say.
