It seems to me like the Magni is more bright than the Vali.
For me it's not about better but for which application. I have the Vali and the Asgard 1 though and the Vali, I can't use for any IEMs or low impedance headphones like the Amperior and Momentum, the noise floor is too high (thats a dislike, but one that can't be changed). With high impedance headphones though it's an awesome amp. I think from 50 Ohms upwards (you can go down to 32 though), it's a joy to use. However, recently I ended up using the Valhalla more since it's even blacker than the Vali. But for the money, the Vali is a great performer.
