Thank you!!

 

I will definitely wait!  

 

I have a little more than a month to go to NYC, I suppose that is decent time for people to get their new stuff and review and compare with the old stuff. :D

I can´t find the Valhalla 2 tube rolling thread. Is there one?  

 

I am loving my Valhalla 2, and since I am considering a solid state amp as a secondary, for a more forward, bright sound. Somebody suggested that those things could probably be had with the same Valhalla 2 with different tubes. 

 

Any ideas?

I don't think buying now presents any greater risk than any other time for any other technology product a couple years into its life. It might get updated, it might not. who's to say.

 

Buy used, save some cash, feel less bad if it does get updated/replaced.

Just got a valhalla 2, should i use low or high gain for my hd800?

 

Cheers

I usually keep mine on high gain, but you should try both. Just ensure that you turn the volume all the way down first, or your ears may not like the jump in volume.

I always suggest starting with low gain and only use high if you require more volume. Try both and see which you prefer.

 

Edit: Remember the output impedance changes when the gain is adjusted.

Also just realised how hot this runs, burns my finger just touching the volume knob. I've raised it on a metal riser and might need to hook up a fan on it. What ways are you guys cooling it?

post #764 of 852

Nothing other than Socket Savers or adapters.

 

Tube amps and Class A amps run hot.  It is OK.

 

IMHO,

Socket savers take down the heat a bit. Bigger feet for circulation my help as well. It runs hot no matter what you do though. I've seen wrap the knob in various materials and bands to help.
