Exactly, that was what I was thinking when I read post one. The Valhala has only one input so best to have a single source going to it.

my NFB 10ES2 had a line level option, high and low, I used the low output setting when I had the Schiit Vali and it helped with the noise out of my W1000x

Well I just got permission from my wife to order a Sennheiser HD650. I can't handle steps anymore (battling cancer) so we are moving out of our 2 story house into an apartment. Thus I'll be using more headphones and less speakers. Guess I can't be playing my McIntosh speakers at concert hall levels in an apartment. The good news is the new apartment is quite spacious with a very large living room.

Man, sorry about your illness, best wishes to you. You have made a great choice with the hd650's, and the Valhalla is ideal/fantastic with them.
Tell us later how you like them compared to your hd280's. I bet u will be very happy.

Thanks for the well wishes. I listen to mostly classical and jazz with some classic rock (my formative years) mixed in. From all the reading I've done on this site and others I think I made a good choice. I gave the 280's back to my son after I bought a pair of HD360 pro. They were only $50 with free shipping from Amazon. They broke in nicely and sound decent...especially for the $. They are a good bit smaller than the 280's but fit me fine. If you have large ears forget the 360's. I'll give my opinion on the 650's once I run them through their paces.

the 650's are a different animal than the 360's, as you know.  Open vs. closed, comfortable vs. not so much, refined vs. bright sound.

You're going to be blown away by the 650's.

All the best...
