+1 I made this same comment a few weeks ago. I don't know that I'd call it better than the BHC w/sb, just different. The BHC is a tube amp that sounds tubey. The Val2 is a tube amp that sounds...well. solid state. It's very clean and resolving. Beautiful with the hd600/650/800. It also sounds very good with the ma900 and if you put it on high gain it works pretty darn good with efficient planars like the he400/400i.

Yes that was a poor choice of words on my part. That is the perfect way to describe the two amps. The valhalla actually does sound like a solid state amp.

Right out of the packaging these '60s Foton tubes sound awesome. Definitely a little more open and distant sounding. Not sure if I like the distance this adds but I really like the openness it adds (this is a very minor thing to me, however); I'm going to wait until these puppies get some hours on them.
