I've had the Schiit Magni for about a year paired with my Mad Dogs and have been very happy with the setup. But, I'm interested in the Vali as a possible replacement/upgrade for the Magni. I've always to try a tube amp and the Vali seems like a good way to dip the toes in the pool and see if its a fit.
I'd be interested in hearing from anyone who has switched out the Magni for the Vali and uses that with the Mad Dogs. If I were to get the Vali I'd probably take the Magni to the office and pair it with the Modi and some in-ear phones.
Thanks in advance for the feedback!
