iBasso D42 vs Schiit Magni/Modi

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,
I am searching for my first amp/DAC. It's for my grados SR80s, I will upgrade to Alessandro MS2i soon. There is not much information about this ibasso model, but I plan to buy it with Hiflight OPAMP to add some warmth. Or maybe buy the Schiit stack which has very good reputation on this website. I mostly listen to Rock, (instrumental, alternative, indie, etc)
Which one is better under these cirncumstances? Any advice or recommendation is very welcome

Maybe Vali would perform better than magni since it has tubes, but it also its a high impedance amp, so I dont know...

I recently purchased the Schiit Vali and it is AWESOME. Highly recommended. That said I'm not familiar w/ your headphones or the iBasso, but so far I'm loving the Vali's sound. My first tube amp and it's a winner.

Which headphones do you own? I looked into Vali as well but since grados have low impedance I don't know if it's going to be a good pair.

I have been using them with my Sony MDR 7506's. I also have the MDR-1R's but haven't tried them with those yet.
