Schiit Valhalla 2 for IEM & low Ω anyone?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Just saw the description of the new Valhalla. The Valhalla 2. 

 

Seems that you can now actually use it with low-impedance headphones... although only 180mW in 50Ω, what about 32Ω? You guys think it would still be powerful enough even if the output is somehow below standard (i find its usually around 400mW @32Ω) ?

It all depends on the sensitivity. The Valhalla would probably be ok for most dynamics, but would struggle on inefficient planars like the HE-6 and HE-5.

I spent a few hours listening to my T5P through the Valhalla 2 on Friday.  My initial impression is that it sounds quite warm, warmer than the original Valhalla.  That said, the low gain setting seemed great for the T5P.  Comfortable volume was around 11-12 on the pot, and there was no background noise that I could discern.
